(1) autographed book "DEATH PROOF" a screenplay by Quentin Tarantino. Included you will receive two images of Quentin Tarantino from this day and a copy of the IRISH Independent dated Sept. 15, 2007 that talks about Quentin Tarantino's visit for the premiere of "DEATH PROOF".
Tarantino attended the HMV record store on Dublin's Grafton Street for an hour prior to the premiere of the film on the 14th where he signed copies of the script. The signing was limited to 250 people who were all issued with wristbands. Mary mentioned to Tarantino the book would be used to help raise funds for the WM3.
Thanks to WM3 supporter Mary Kinsella who resides in Dublin, Ireland in retrieving this great item for auction. Some notes about Quentin Tarantino's book signing visit to Ireland: Tarantino was in Ireland on 13th Sept to promote the film. In the U.S. this was for the film "Grindhouse".
Recovered from the shooting, Lilly wants to convince her boss that she's ready to get back to work. The team re-opens the 1994 case of three 10-year-old kids who were beaten to death when Lilly suspects the teens convicted of the killings may have been wrongfully incarcerated.
Airs: Sunday September 23, 2007 The Chicago Tribune Nirvana's music comes to 'Cold Case' News about the first-ever use of Nirvana's music on a broadcast television program has been released by CBS.
The Sept. 23 season premiere of “Cold Case” will feature eight of the band’s songs: “All Apologies,” “Stay Away,” “If You Must,” “Lithium,” “Drain You,” “Something in the Way” and “Heart Shaped Box.”
The episode of the CBS procedural is called “Thrill Kill,” and concerns an investigation into a 1994 case “about two seemingly nihilistic male teens who may have been falsely accused and convicted of murdering three 10-year-old boys,” “Cold Case” executive producer Veena Sud, who wrote the episode, said in a statement issued by the network.
Last October, Forbes reported that four Nirvana songs, including the iconic “Come As You Are,” would be used on “CSI: Miami” in November 2006. However no Nirvana tracks were on the soundtrack when the episode in question aired. A CBS spokesperson said then that there were no Nirvana tracks on the episode because the show’s producers “felt that creatively it didn’t work for the episode.”
The short-lived 2006 TNT series “Saved” also wanted to use “Come As You Are” as its title theme, but was turned down.
As I reported in an article on the licensing of Nirvana’s music and the use of rock music on TV, the Seattle band’s tunes have been licensed only twice in recent years. The film “Jarhead” used “Something in the Way” and the HBO series “Six Feet Under” used “All Apologies.”
“Since Courtney Love, the widow of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, sold part of the Nirvana publishing catalogue to the firm Primary Wave, Love’s management and Primary Wave have been searching for ways to expose a new generation of fans to Nirvana’s music through television and films,” as I noted in a blog post last year.
In the June 2006 Tribune story on the marketing of the band’s catalogue, Primary Wave’s Larry Mestel talked generally about the potential use of the band’s music in TV and films.
“It would have to be something that everybody involved would be proud of,” Mestel said. “It would have to be tasteful and, frankly, it’s got to make financial sense as well. It’s not going to be an insignificant amount of money.”
“Cold Case” has made a series of well-received episodes featuring the music of a single artist or band. Previously, the music of Bruce Springsteen got the single-episode treatment, and the music of U2, Tim McGraw, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash and John Mellencamp have also been heard on themed episodes of the show, which kicks off its fifth season on Sept. 23.
“Nirvana’s music not only evokes the era when this case’s killings took place but brings a starkness and poetry to the story that deeply enhances it,” Sud said.
“The episode… takes place several weeks after the ‘Cold Case’ Season 4 finale, when Lilly (Kathryn Morris) was shot and critically wounded,” according to CBS’ Monday press release. “She has just returned to work and tries to convince her boss, Stillman (John Finn), and herself that she's emotionally ready to spearhead the re-opening of the disturbing 1994 case after new evidence suggests that the boys’ real killer may still be at large.”
The story laid out in CBS’ synopsis, by the way, bears a resemblance to the real-life case of the West Memphis Three. During the mid-90s, three young Arkansas men were convicted of the 1993 murders of three 8-year-old boys. The three men convicted in the case, which was investigated in the documentaries “Paradise Lost” and “Paradise Lost 2,” have many high-profile supporters in the rock and alternative-music scenes who think the men were wrongfully convicted.
