Your Friday Jam: Drive Edition

Drive: The uber-violent yet incredibly gorgeous, slow-burning masterpiece from director Nicolas Winding Refn.  Not only did this movie provide us with some of the most iconic scenes in cinema history – and arguably the most bad-ass real human being and real hero in cinema history – it also provided us with a haunting soundtrack that drives the tension almost as much as the visuals.  If you have not yet seen it, do it now.  Just be sure to watch it without your wife or girlfriend because one of two things will happen if she watches it; A) she’ll hate the slow amazingly violent scenes, or B) she will leave you for Ryan Gosling.  Hell, you might even leave her for Ryan Gosling – look at that brooding face…

Whet your appetite with “A Real Hero”, set to a montage from the movie (no real spoilers), by College featuring Electric Youth.

I hope this helps you drive into the weekend.
