My Inspiration – Jerome Mazandarani (Manga)

“Throw me the idol and I’ll give you the whip.”

Raiders Of The Lost Ark

I remember seeing it at the Balcatta Odeon Drive-In, Perth Western Australia when I was about five years old. We’d only just emigrated from the UK.  It made a huge impression on me. I’ve loved genre films ever since. I’ve taught my four-year-old son to say it. It’s his second favourite movie line after “It puts the lotion in the basket”.

•HMV’s My Inspiration is about the artists, actors and directors we love, sharing with us the lyrics and songs, poetry and dialogue that have inspired them. The journey began in 2006, when David Bowie became the first artist to take part, selecting Syd Barrett’s Gigolo Aunt as his inspiration. Since that time, many of our greatest icons and best new artists from the world of entertainment have featured.

We at the Raygun are asking the UK home entertainment trade for the films, people, or even songs, that inspired them to become part of our business.
