26 Films: The Running Kind
The fashions are pure Cowpunk, mixing Western wear, lingerie, and Punk and Glam clothes of the mid to late 80s, which I kinda like. The music is fairly Cowpunk mixing those sounds in a way that I like... and that I like enough that I own both released albums by the real Screamin' Sirens.
I have a lot of affection for this film, in many way's it reflects parts of my life. I grew up in a proper christian household where there were a lot of expectations about how my life would play out. I ended up falling off that track for various reasons, and one of the places I ended up was in the punk rock world. I wasn't lucky enough to have a cadre of Cowpunk chicks chasing me, but hey you can't have everything.... but I digress, The Runnin' Kind is one of those films that needs to be rediscovered, sure it's on the slight side, but it never bored me and I think that a lot of people will find a lot to like in it. Of course it's not on DVD, but if I had all the money in the world, it would end up on a 2 in 1 DVD with our next enter Scenes from the Goldmine. I also really want to know what Yum Yum from House of Self-Indulgence Blog would think of this film.
