Okay, so this isn't totally related to Lobster (in fact, probably not at all), but a friend and I came up with a wacky idea for a soundtrack, and it's definitely for fans of good music, like most Lobster fans are. We're pretty big political junkies, so we read all the silly Washington gossip blogs (wonkette, drudge, etc...), and in recent months, one of the bigger bits of gossip was this individual who used the nom dé plume The Washingtonienne. She basically had a bunch of sex on Capitol Hill, including with a guy who was appointed by Bush. Anyway, I'm not doing this any justice, so point your browsers to http://washingtoniennearchive.blogspot.com and read up.
Well, Ms. Washingtonienne got a book deal and her novel is coming out in June, so my friend and I got to thinking "well, they'll probably make a movie out of this too" and we came up with a cast list. However, we also decided that a good movie needs a good soundtrack, so instead of going the usual lame soundtrack route with bad pop songs, we took the Garden State path, and filled the mix with songs that are a little more on the indie tip, as well as diving back into the 70s and 80s!
