Score!

Almost forgot! During my extended stay in Buffalo, NY this winter, I was lucky enough to find the 1995 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack CD at the Record Theatre for US$ 2.99. Talk about random. If you’re ever in that area, pay them a visit. Vinyl, tape, DVD, CD, VHS..you name it they have it, and they’re rather cheap. I think they have an eBay store as well. And I’m sorry..as good as the 2012 movie was, the original 1995 with Sylvester Stallone is IMHO still the best, by far. Over-the-top, brought-to-life comic..it’s all bad and that’s why it’s so good.

Have a listen to (part of) the original score composed and directed by Alan Silvestri:

And there you have it..an old piece of 1995 orchestral music composed for a soundtrack, not even complete, just a shard of it, is removed almost before the upload is complete. Copyright infringement. Ah well. I guess you just have to look the damn thing up yourself then. You can listen to some tracks via the MP3 button. Bullshit intelligent software. Reminds me of when I uploaded a home made movie to Facebook..which identically swiftly got removed followed by a legal letter stipulating how to contest this decision (for a fee, obviously) and a life-time ban on uploading video. Yeah..Facebook is such a nice place to be..

What I CAN show you is the Judge Dredd OST from the Judge Dredd game for SNES by Acclaim. Also 1995, and also fun:

Anyway, back to the original CD. This is the track listing:

  1. Dredd Song – The Cure
  2. Darkness Falls – The The
  3. Super-Charger Heaven – White Zombie
  4. Need-Fire – Cocteau Twins
  5. Release the Pressure – Leftfield
  6. Judge Dredd Main Theme – The Sinfonia of London
  7. Judgement Day – The Sinfonia of London
  8. Block War – The Sinfonia of London
  9. We Created You – The Sinfonia of London
  10. Council Chaos – The Sinfonia of London
  11. Angel Family – The Sinfonia of London
  12. New World – The Sinfonia of London

Immersing myself deeper and deeper in this world called Dredd, I’ve for long been looking for figurines either from the movie (yes, the Sly movie) or from other ‘official’ channels. But these things are hard to find it seems! Till not too long ago I could only find fan-made stuff on the internet, but now -for some reason- things seem to be picking up. Last week I stumbled upon an absolutely awesome figurine, checked the website, and found even more.

Expensive, and pre-order, but oh oh me want. I’ve kind of set my mind on this LawMaster by MezcoToyz but for now I’ve settled for my little Pop! Vinyl Dredd. Which is fun too and much more affordable.

Update: ohhhhh there’s more to be found. PCS Collectibles is coming out with a 1:4 scale statue and just look at that diorama above! WorldOf3A seems to have some nice pieces, Art Figures (Artistic Interpretation?) has an awesome version of Dredd 3D (AF015) and apparently one can go around and shoot the LawGiver well LOL. Or should I just go old skool and look for the cool stuff at antique fairs and thrift shops? I must get another job. I must get these things. Aya..

Okay that’s weird

Coming to Canada has opened up a lot of doors otherwise closed or hard to locate. For example comic books. Sure there’s plenty to go around in the Netherlands, but not in such huge quantities as over here. Strangely enough this is where I decided to do something about my Judge Dredd fascination, and not in Europe (since Judge Dredd was conceived in the UK, not North America). Thankfully there’s Dredd to be found..lots of stuff. Mountains of stuff. Slowly I’m building a collection..it isn’t much but that’s not the point. It’s possible and therefor I’m doing it. Because Dredd is so cool. And I mean the Sly Dredd. Here’s my comics collection thus far..more to follow soon.
