Music Monday (on Tuesday): Action Cookies + Matching with Alex


I forgot Monday. Again. That’s three consecutive entries for what is probably the easiest thing that I do around here, which is personally unacceptable. So as a form of penance we’ll be doing Music Monday on a Tuesday.

I went through a bunch of possible choices but I really wasn’t feeling any of them. A day where I don’t want to share a Thin Lizzy song is truly a blah one. Then my brain wandered back to this awesome action movie I’d watched a couple of weeks ago on B-Movie TV called Traxx. It follows the exploits of Traxx, a mercenary ex-cop-turned-vigilante who cleans up the crime in his town while chasing the dream of being a master cookie baker. 1980’s action films are truly a lost art. The tone of the movie is akin to Last Action Hero if said movie were to binge on four bags of sugar and a gallon of Tabasco sauce and is an absolute joy to watch.

One of the best moments is around the mid-way point where the movie breaks into a classic 80’s montage of citizens cleaning up the town, people lining up to buy Traxx t-shirts, and Traxx trying to bake cookies and dancing by a lake with his buddy Deeter. I have been searching for that montage on its own ever since but in the end I had to make it myself. This took a bit of hunting and work but I managed to do it, so enjoy the crumbly goodness!

I tried for lyrics but the search was hopeless and Deeter talks over the first several lines.
