Can someone tell us what these commenters are talking about?

I have had the soundtrack to Inherent Vice as its listed on amazon on my ipod for months now and I have been listening to it over and over... and over. I hope Paul keeps it all because the music is soo good and fitting

I'm sure he will keep some of it but music selection has often been a big way for PTA to express himself. Betting he will have at least a few less commercial songs of his own choosing from the era in there.

From the IV IMDb message boards:

I remember thinking that it was a really cool idea for Pynchon to release a soundtrack to a book. Very clever idea. Some are real songs by real bands, some are fake songs by characters in the novel. Here it is as listed on amazon.com.

"Bang Bang" by The Bonzo Dog Band
Bootleg Tape by Elephant's Memory
"Can't Buy Me Love" by The Beatles
"Desafinado" by Stan Getz & Astrud Gilberto, with Charlie Byrd
Elusive Butterfly by Bob Lind
"Fly Me to the Moon" by Frank Sinatra
"Full Moon in Pisces" performed by Lark
"God Only Knows" by The Beach Boys
The Greatest Hits of Tommy James and The Shondells
"Happy Trails to You" by Roy Rogers
"Help Me, Rhonda" by The Beach Boys
"Here Come the Hodads" by The Marketts

"Motion by the Ocean" by The Boards
"People Are Strange (When You're a Stranger)" by The Doors
"Pipeline" by The Chantays
"Quentin's Theme" (Theme Song from "Dark Shadows") performed by Charles Randolph Grean Sounde

pynchon himself made the playlist, to portray the atmosphere of the book. the book talks about music and creates lyrics, which is a thing pynchon likes to do

i don't remember where it was. it looks like it was on amazon and isn't on amazon anymore

edit -- oh it's listed above. nice

If anyone is interested, go on instagram and hashtag inherentvice, because there are a couple of 10-15 second behind the scenes clips on there from folks who were on set. A notable one is some dude right behind PTA as they're shooting a steadicam shot

For those that don't have instagram: 

The other pictures on there are either super blurry or very far away, but if you still wanna see them, just google:  "Instagram #inherentvice", like Lottery said.

The AD looked like Nic Refn in that video.

3) A few have inquired, and we can now confirm through a source on the ground: Inherent Vice WILL, like The Master, have an aspect ratio of 1.85:1. Many of you already know what this means, but for those not interested in technical gobbledygook, the size of the frame that the shots are being composed for will be less wide than the first five PTA films, which all preserve 2.35:1.

I'm kinda shocked this is the case to be honest, in my head I definitely thought the material lends itself to be shot in cinemascope.

Interested if he's shooting anamorphic, but framing for 1.85:1 or if he's shooting spherical. I'm guessing it's anamorphic considering his infatuation with the lens flares and all, but you never know
