Friday Fun: Samurai Karaoke

What do you get when you mix equal parts Tarantino violence, the History Channel and 1990 karaoke of 80’s tunes? Honeysuckle Blues, the promotional piece that, sadly, did not lead to a full feature film for my buddy AJ who plays the katana-wielding main character.

The whole thing reminds me of another Tarantino touchpoint, Jules discussing Pilot TV in Pulp Fiction:

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show’s called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they’re going to make more shows. Some pilots get picked and become television programs. Some don’t, become nothing. She starred in one of the ones that became nothing.

Happy Friday!
