Oh shit, son! You have just entered another dimension, a dimension not only of text and pictures, but of madness. You have embarked on a journey into a lunatic's mind. Check your sanity at the door--you're in the Land of Way!

Random Cool Shit - Lalo Schifrin's Riff on the Jaws Theme
The theme for Jaws is one of the baddest themes ever to emerge from the depths of the cinema. Yet it is a bit simplistic and it has earned its reputation more for being brutally effective than by virtue of its technical prowess. John Williams is a legend and his work with Jaws is badass, but it should be noted that fellow composer Lalo Schifrin (Enter the Dragon, Dirty Harry, Mission Impossible) offered up a dazzling jazz rendition of the theme that is both brutally effective and boldly realized. Don't take my word for it, though, do yourself a favor and give it a listen here. You can thank me later.
