Two Tough Guys

Late at night, after the second airing of Adult Swim and in daring defiance of my nine a.m. wake up call, I put together a special CD. A double disc album, I'm wagering. It's the soundtrack to "Kill Bill." But it's not the studio version; It's that plus thirty or so extra tracks that didn't make the store-bought version. Great stuff from Isaac Hayes and Ennio Morricone. Stuff culled from the bottom shelf of the western, blaxploitation, samurai and kung fu shelves of some dirty video store. Stuff with wonderful, pinpoint-evocative titles like "The Demise of Barbara and the Return of Joe" or "Seven Notes in Black" or "Yagyu Conspiracy" or this one by a singer named Lily Chou-Chou called, awkwardly, "Wound That Heals."

Tonight is a good night.
