Fly, you fools!

makoiyi said a very true thing about writing over in her comments recently:

I ain't gonna get it right as long as I am thinking like me



The odd thing about having been sucked into watching '80's videos (mostly Grace Jones and The Art of Noise) on YouTube is that... it's work. Specifically, a major thread in Undertow relates to one of the creepier realities of the information age. Specifically, that the Internet Is Forever. (Something I'm reminded of every time the "You might be a gamer if--" list comes back to me in forwarded email. *g*)

And here it is in action.

Also, "Pull Up To My Bumper"? Is still just as dirty as it ever was.

Man, that was a weird decade.

Okay, I promise to stop spamming livejournal now.

Comments

I can't believe they used to play that on the *radio.*

...although they used to play "Dynamo Humm" on the radio, too....

The thing I love about that video (1980. baby!) is Devo up there in their lego hats... and the audience, still thinking it's 1979, with their barettes and granny dresses.

It's like the bit in Back to the Future where Michael J. Fox starts playing Hendrix at a sock hop.

The future has arrived, baby. Hang on tight.

Here, have some more Art of Noise.

Lip synching.

On Soul Train.

... in a yellow girl blouse.

David, I could not love thee more.

Did you see the second part, with the half the crowd clapping like fools and the other half like, who *is* this honkey faggot?

Wait, I was wrong. I could love him more.

But don't plan on getting out today.

...I need a cigarette.
omg, David, make that noise again.
There is nothing like a little Devo to make you feel sane.
In my youth -- ten years ago, that is, when I was sixteen and the Internet was simply HTML -- I was enamored of Xena: Warrior Princess. So, naturally, I made a fansite. Under my own name.

I forgot about it until a job interviewer four years ago kicked back and said "so... Xena, huh," in an interview.

Oy.

Also? The Save SeaQuest campaign of '93 or '94? Under my own name, too. On Google Groups. FOREVER.

I'm part of that very awkward group of fans in their twenties who are not quite Millenial enough to know to Never, Never, Never Put Stuff Like That Under Your Own Name, I guess... :)
All this just to say -- yes, the Internet is Forever. I agree. Ack. *runs off now*
Somewhere on the internet are all the terrible websites I made when I was in high school. Sobering thought, huh?

I think I changed my name when I got married just because I hope that it will throw of interviewers googling me.

Oh, you lie. And you know it.
