You may or may not have heard, but Drew Barrymore, Juliette Lewis, Eve, and Ellen Page are all in the Detroit area shooting a roller-derby inspired movie called Whip It! (they were spotted at a show by some band called Thunderbirds are Now! a few weeks ago, and also seen here making complete fucking fools of themselves at Jacoby’s). Like most films, we’re suspecting that there is going to be a soundtrack put together for the flick (think it’ll feature the Devo song of the same name?)…so with that in mind, we bring you an opportunity to sign a petition, headed up by our boy Mike White and his Impossible Funky film zine, that begs for the inclusion of “Roller Derby Saved My Soul” by Brooklyn by-way-of Ann Arbor rock-a-billy dudes Uncle Leon & The Alibis. Click here to sign up, click the YouTube clip above to hear the song, and while you’re at it, check out Mr. White’s site for more cult film insanity than you’ll probably know what to do with. — Ryan Allen
