That was unusual.

Joan said...

I'm not going to admit to how many of those albums I own(ed).

SteveR said...

Clever. I'm surprised no one has flagged it for "inappropriate" content. Whatever.

Rick Lee said...

Wow... I guess I'm going to have to watch that several times... it all goes by so fast.

Wish I had that kind of time on my hands.

Just as the New York Times described the new "Jackass" movie as being "exhilarating," so too is this excrescence.

Exhilaration is defined as a feeling of happiness and excitement combined with a heightened sense of being alive.

Perhaps like the way one might feel after watching a public execution.

Actually, nauseating might be a better word.

That was fun.

Revenant said...

Very cool.

Tibore said...

Hmmmph... this is what happens when Terry Gilliam gets left in a room with a whole bunch of 80's records...

Doug said...

That was pretty damn good, not at all what I expected.

Like Joan said, I don't want to admit to which albums I own either, though Iron Maiden and Dio are not in my collection.

Brilliant piece of animation. Very well done.

Fabulous!

"Exhilaration is defined as a feeling of happiness and excitement combined with a heightened sense of being alive."
And this doesn't describe Jackass 2 how?

George said...

Jacob--

"Exhilarated" is a word I would use to describe the way one might feel after winning a foot race, witnessing a birth, or watching a sunrise from a mountaintop.

"Exhilrated" is not a word I would use to describe the way I would feel after watching a movie about Nazi death camps, 9/11, animated characters having their limbs chopped off or engaging in suggesting sexual behavior, or fools willingly submitting to torture, as in "Jackass."

While a lesser, variant meaning of the word is "titillation," it is primarily used to communicate a sense of joy at being alive, a sense of mystical union with the majestic wonder of life, such as this passage from Tarzan:

"The feeling of freshness and exhilaration which the cool waters had imparted to him filled his little being with grateful surprise."

Fair use?

Or, most copyright infringements per second of any video on YouTube?

(which, is really quite an accomplishment in of itself)

(and I fall in the cool, but a bit more chunkily violent than necessary, camp)

Thought it just cute (especially the "Country Life" fembots) 'til the chop-socky scene between the Dead Kennedys and Van Halen. After that, it became brilliant.

On the album true confessions (à la Doug and Joan): I remember, as a Junior High School student back in Rust-Belt NY, standing in a Fay's Drugstore (which carried records) with my paper-girl money seriously agonizing between Pyromania and Synchronicity. (I ended up with Pyromania.)

I can't get the video to play; has it been taken down already?
