Fancy grooving your way back to 1994 when Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction smashed its way into the culture with a volley of violence, hitmen and cheeseburgers?
The soundtrack tended to stick in the mind, as did that gimp. What is a gimp anyway? Probably better not to know.
Alas, a band calling itself Vincent Vega and the Gimps will perform the Pulp Fiction soundtrack at Lizotte's at Lambton on Friday night. The band features Newcastle musicians performing the soundtrack live.
With its unmistakable mix of surf and soul, the mesmeric soundtrack must rank among the world's most hippest and eccentric mixtapes. Tarantino knows his tunes.
Tracks like Bullwinkle Part II,Son of a Preacher Man, Jungle Boogie, Bustin' Surfboards and Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon gave the film a timeless feel that took the audience into another dimension. Which, we reckon, is precisely what movies are for.
This gig could have a similar feel, quite possibly transporting you back to the movie theatre where you first saw the film - with its unconventional dialogue, ensemble characters and quirky, trance-like qualities.
Nowadays we're living in a strange time of political correctness, whereas Pulp Fiction was ground central for political incorrectness. The culture has been flipped.
As Vincent Vega [played by John Travolta] said: "Chill Jules, this shit happens."
As the coronavirus spreads, some folks sense a business opportunity.
When the bushfire smoke was at its worst in NSW, P2 face masks were selling like hot cakes. Those same masks are now hot property in China.
A Topics spy said one local company bought thousands of these masks from China for $1 a pop. Now they're selling them back to the Chinese for $6 each.
They're set to make millions.
Meanwhile, PETA [People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals] noted that coronavirus is an anagram of carnivorous.
PETA Australia special projects co-ordinator Desmond Bellamy said the virus "appears to have emerged from a fish market that was also selling wild animals such as beavers, porcupines and snakes in the city of Wuhan in central China".
"The 2002-03 SARS pandemic was similarly traced to civet cats. In these markets, urine, faeces and other bodily fluids from live, wild animals end up mixing with blood from butchered ones, providing ideal breeding grounds for viruses and bacteria," he said.
"Overwhelmingly, human diseases start with the abuse of animals. Hunting and the appropriation of animal habitats has led to diseases such as Hendra and Ebola."
He said the 2009 swine flu epidemic started in pigs, measles originally came from cattle and whooping cough from dogs.
Such epidemics had become "regular events", he said.
"Diseases thought to be long vanquished are returning with the spread of superbugs, largely due to the use of massive doses of antibiotics in factory farms to promote faster growth and counter the diseases that spread in filthy conditions."
Scientists have warned for years that "filthy farms crammed with sick and suffering animals are breeding grounds for new, antibiotic-resistant bacteria".
"We create these problems from the violence we impose by torturing and slaughtering gentle animals."
