The other night I watched Tank Girl for like the thousandth time. I swear, that movie has to be one of the most gloriously campy B movies of all time. But I love it. Lori Petty is ingenious. I get to hear one of my favorite Portishead songs. I get to see yet another strange and interesting role done by that cutie-pie Ice T. Women kick ass, take names, and save the day (like THAT is any surprise).

Tank Girl (Rebecca) and her friends are the only remaining citizens living in the wasteland that is Earth, where all the remaining water is controlled by Water and Power, the mega corporation/government that runs the territory. While incarcerated at W + P, Tank Girl and her new friend Jet Girl break out and steal… a tank and a jet. After meeting some mutant kangaroo/humans, and rescuing her little girl (adopted by her friends), the kangaroos and the girls kick Water and Powers’ butt.

Oh, who am I kidding, I think I just have a deep-seated desire to wear rockets on my boobs and make it with kangaroo men. :lmao:

Spread the love

Here’s a funny Tank Girl Story for ya.
It was about ten years ago, and my buddy Pat and I went and saw it in the theatre. We walked up there, as we lived on queen ann hill and never needed to drive anywhere. We were to meet our friends after for a night on the town and I had forgotten my ID. So here I am, 11:30 PM this TINY FEMALE PERSON, very timid, saying, OK I can walk back and get it by myself, I am so ready to kick some ass after seeing this movie, I HOPE somebody tries something. And on the way home, I was approached by two odd looking men. Making eye contact with me. Picking up speed. Scary shite. Before they could get withing ten feet of me, I’m running TOWARD them, I’m yelling. “DON’T YOU EVEN THINK OF GETTING ANY CLOSER YOU MOTHA FUCKERS!!! I AM ALL ABOUT KICKING YOUR ASS TONIGHT!!!” And they ran away, surely because they though I was some kind of PCP crazed lunatic. That is so out of character for me. So thank you, Tank Girl, for saving my life.

I remember Tank Girl. Wasn’t Naomi Watts in it before she became kinda famous? Or am I thinking of someone else?
Your site is gorgeous by the way!
