For some reason I thought this movie came out in the early 90's .. anyway.. 1997

I knew a couple of families growing up in the early 70's that had almost feral children. A couple of memories that come to mind was me and one of these kids throwing rocks at this VW bug that was half dismantled on their property and then the owner of it yelling out the window for us to stop.

My Dad lent/gave some friend of his a couple of paintings and his kids cut them off the stretchers and used them for tents.

Kids were obsessed about bikes back then.. is that still a thing? So this one set of of kids were always trying to build ramps to jump their bikes off of.. and by ramp I mean a piece of wood leaned up against a concrete block.

Also the general level of filth in some of their homes was almost on par with this movie. The kid sitting in bath of filthy water eating spaghetti o's is almost reality.

The scene with the still photo of the redneck couple. The music is an excerpt of Brighter Death Now. No credit was ever given.

Watched again last night, its not a still photo.
But yeah its the part with the little girl playing by herself and then it cuts to show her parents.



Everyday it's a gettin' closer
Goin' faster than a roller coaster
Love like yours will surely come my way
A hey, a hey hey

Everyday it's a gettin' faster
Everyone says go ahead and ask her
Love like yours will surely come my way
A hey, a hey hey

Everyday seems a little longer
Every way love's a little stronger
Come what may do you ever long for
True love from me

Everyday it's a gettin' closer

God, I love this film. I could watch it over and over again.
The world is indeed comic, but the joke is on mankind.

I had seen Gummo before ever hearing Brighter Death Now and I owned the soundtrack(which doesn't have "Little Baby" on it).

I listened to Innerwar about a year ago and immediately thought of Gummo. Wonder why he wasn't credited..
