Saw High Fidelity again yesterday and realized where your sig comes from. Cool.
Nick Hornby is the tits. If your only exposure to him is the Hollywood take on "High Fidelity" (which I loved, despite the change of venue from London to Chicago), I highly suggest reading the original and all his other books. As an Arsenal supporter and soccer fanatic, I especially recommend "Fever Pitch." Great book and film. It's also just been remade for we Americans as the story of an obsessed Red Sox fan; while it looks good, I do doubt Jimmy Fallon's ability to fill Colin Firth's shoes...
Sorry to resurrect this thread, but the CCCP track jacket disappeared from target.com before I ever got a chance to order one. If someone could get me a small- or medium-sized CCCP jacket, I would pay them for it, and love them forever. Please PM me.
Mister Bowles, Great to see there's another Hornsby fan here. I loved the book, but just didn't like the movie with John Cusak. For whatever reason, I enjoyed the movie adaptiom About a Boy much more even though I thought the book High Fidelity was his best book so far. I don't expect too much from the new movie Fever Pitch. The whole point of the book was what happens when you're Â fanatical about this team that never wins, and then it suddenly wins. As the script was written before the Red Sox surprising upset over the Yankees, I don't see how it can capture the original tone of the book. I bet you when they incorporate that into the film, the transition will be rather abrupt and tagged on. The best track suits have to be Adidas. I still have some unopened vintage ones from the early 80s, including pants. I never wear both cause that would be overkill.
Okay, esquire, you've forced my hand. If track jackets do not belong in Streetwear, then I am wearing an ascot. For the record, I liked both adaptations. High Fidelity, both movie and book, resonated more with me, and the movie soundtrack was better, but the "About a Boy" book was a much better read, imo.
