The real question is who would have refused those records...
Beverly D'Angelo gets better with age.
Call it corny or whatever, but in the book it had a lot to do with his spiritual renewal and his' feeling good again about owning a record shop. That's why I always wondered why it was left out of the movie...
(and how patently unrealsitic)
No As far as the movie was concerned, naw, I think he was spot-on. I never read Hornby's OG so I can't say if the casting made sense with that.
(and how patently unrealsitic) You haven't spent much time in Lincoln Park have you?
(and how patently unrealsitic) You haven't spent much time in Lincoln Park have you? The patently unrealistic part is the idea that he would have left the singles behind. I mean, dude's a collector and runs a record store. He's going to pass up the motherlode? Yeah, I don't think so.
Here's the thing, I loved the book but I've never been to the UK so I have no idea how true it is in describing the record shop scene. I know from the time I've spent in record shops here stateside that the only other person that could've worked for the role is a fat, asscrack revealing, greasy face, chud under the fingernails, confederate flag sticker, cigar smoking, ill-shaven facial hair, halitosis stench quite-possibly-psychopathic-with-bodies-in-the-basement shop owner and that isn't exactly going to sell tickets. I thought they really nailed all three characters that work at the shop.
Not to be uber-dorky but what version of "God Save the Queen" was that? The artwork is the same as this: http://www.popsike.com/php/detaildatar.php?itemnr=3840725434...but it doesn't look like either the Virgin or A&M versions of the single.
What Otis Redding single is worth $200?
