Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

I’m not planning on catching Pineapple Express. Specifically because, from what I can tell from the previews, the villains are coming off as a bit too cutesy-menacing for me (especially that one with the neckbrace). More generally because I think I’m all Judd Apatow-ed out.

That said, the movie’s soundtrack looks very much in sync with my tastes.

In particular, I have to give props to any flick that includes as obscure a song as Public Enemy’s “Lost At Birth” in its musical lineup. It might just be the best PE track ever, in terms of showcasing the Bomb Squad’s frenetic soundscaping in a tight four-minute package. Hank and Keith Shocklee at their audio-assaulting best.
