An old friend I’ve known since middle school, Dave, emailed me last week to share a discovery. A friend of a friend of his formed a Total Recall tribute band called Realistic Bodies and they made a 17-minute album called Open Your Mind:
If you’ve never seen the original Total Recall with Arnold Schwarzenegger from 1990 (not the shitty remake from 2012) then this album isn’t going to make much sense to you. The original movie is funny and campy in the way only movies from the ’80s and ’90s can be.
Dave and I watched it dozens of times and were constantly referencing all the cheesy lines from it.
“What’s in the two-week package?”
“Baby, you make me wish I had three hands!”
“Ya blabbed, Quaid! Ya blabbed about MAHHHHS!”
Anyway, you had to be there. You can buy the album from their website like me if you dig it.
