Tag Archives: beat your heart out

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

A Johnny Depp masterpiece if I ever did see one.  This has to be one of the most twisted, confusing, mental mind banging film I have ever watched.

This morning at 6am, when I got to the rowing machine at the gym , I sat down and looked at the TV – Fear and Loathing was on.  Better still, they had sub titles. What language do you think they sub’d it with?

Rasta of course – for a film that is already a serious mind bender, you should try reading Rasta subtitles and maintain 28 strokes per minute.

I managed to sort my playlist too for my strength training route.  Of course at first, I ended up with nearly two hours of The Prodigy and Underworld but then I started to trim it down until I ended up with

1. Beat your heart out – The distillers (first 3 minutes of easing into it)

2. Breathe – The prodigy (for the two mother of all uphill climbs)

3. Born Slippy – Underworld (for the longest section which is also downhill)

4. Pretender – Foo Fighters (should get this just as I hit my last hill)

5. Sabotage – Beastie Boys (the last 3 minutes of sprint back to the boat)

That is 23 minutes and 7 seconds if you count the track overlap.  If the music finishes before I get back to the boat, I have lost.

Come back soon for a report on my success
