I sold and gave away a pile of my CDs and records lately. As I was selling them to some friends in my living room, I’d copy a song from each one. I played this mix in a friends’ car en route to the Vancouver airport, where I’d be leaving on a flight to Toronto. I was leaving from the domestic terminal, but I filmed it like I was leaving from international, cause I wanted to use the scene for my film Vancouver Slow Chase.
The songs heard are Geto Boys’ “Mind Playing Tricks On Me,” a Lee Perry production “Woman’s Dub,” the Beatles’ “Baby It’s You” and Coco & the Bean’s “Western Ways.”
On the tape, I said I might be playing this back in Japan, as if I already knew I’d be going there for sure, and that that’s where I’d be doing the editing.
