Wow. Please don't kill me, but I loved this freakin' song, way back when - and this video is a hoot, albeit sort of terrifying:



God, these ones, too, of course:Read more... )

Poster of the last video: "If you don't own Trans I suggest you go and sort your frigging life out"!!! LOL.

Precious metal lines
Molded into highways
Running through me
So microscopically
Days and nights
Weeks and months and seasons
Rolling through me
So chronologically.

* If anyone knows what sort of trees the DEVO trees are, I'd be much obliged. I love them, and have always referred to them as, 'DEVO trees', but that description won't fly in the real world, I expect. :) *

You can learn a lot about someone by the music they listen to. Hit shuffle on your iPod or mp3 player and write down the first 20 songs. No cheating or skipping songs that are shameful. That is the fun! - Um.

From my DEV-O Obsess-O newsletter:

The prestigious Victoria and Albert Museum in London, UK will feature a vintage "Freedom Of Choice" era DEVO suit in their "Postmodernism: Style & Subversion 1970-1990" show that opens this month on Sept. 24th. Also featured will be costumes from Grace Jones, Klaus Nomi, and many more!

*~*~*

Came home, this morning to NO CATS.
NONE.
Usually, they are all over the patio and steps, waiting to be fed - and you have to weave deftly your way through them, just to get INTO the door to get their food.

Nothing. Nobody. STILL. I just checked.

Even worse? The food is still in the dishes, untouched.

*~*~*

My son, who was supposed to be buying himself another pair of pants for work, and doing laundry and errands....spent three hours in the park today, talking to, 'a homeless man'. He claims said man was, 'crying because his son died, today.'

Three hours, people.

Part of me wants to scream, "What are you, crazy?!?", and part of me wants to hug him for being so good-hearted..and part of me just wants toilet paper.

*~*~*

The thousand-leggers at work are getting OUT OF HAND.

There was this ENORMOUS one on the ceiling of one of our residents. The ceiling. Never saw one so damned big. Naturally, she saw it - and my coworker and I FROZE. I ran to get Linda - who is a badass extraordinaire - who hit at it with a broom until it ran away into the curtains.

We then all proceeded to pretend that it was knocked to the floor and squished. Oh, such Oscar-worthy performances..

..as soon as the nurses left? THE THING CAME BACK OUT. And was on the ceiling directly over Miss Thelma. We all screamed bloody murder. All of us; her roomate, included. My coworker grabbed a tissue, and CLIMBED ONTO THE BED to REACH IT.


It fell. INTO her bed.


More hysterical screaming, until Katie managed to brush it onto the floor and then squish it. FOR REAL, THIS TIME.

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU LIE, KIDS.

From what I've seen/heard, The Cure were FANTASTIC in Sydney, these past few nights. Dang. Can't wait for this DVD - wish they'd come here and play some of those great songs. Both my boys look/sound AMAZING - and yes, they sang, Happy Birthday to Simon. ♥

*~*~*

DEVO has decided to come to Pittsburgh for my birthday. Unfortunately, a) I have no money, can't even pay my bills, b) it's on a FRIDAY, on my weekend to work, and I can't even call off sick, because I'm STILL on that fuckin' wankass probation, c) the few seats available are General Admission and a million miles from the stage. This is REALLY upsetting me. They keep getting closer and closer to me, and I STILL can't manage to fuckin' make it. So much for my GeeDee Bucket List.

*~*~*

The Hangover:2.

ZOMG. Ed.

I had to watch it twice.

*~*~*

For now, the heat has broken. Hope it stays this way. I know, I should be sleeping. :/

This is actually quite striking, for DEVO; SO much love for this song. No idea where half of this footage comes from, though:



And it's gotten so that I cannot get through the night without this song. ESPECIALLY at work, if'n ya get me:



'A Prophecy Fulfilled', indeed.

I canNOT believe how much these guys still kick ass. Another one that I have to hear:



This one, too:



"In the meantime, it's on with the show..on with the show.."

Still so effin' relevant. God, I wish I'd gotten to see them live. Damn.
correctiveshoes621: (i need something)
"It's a beautiful world we live in,
a sweet, romantic place;
beautiful people, everywhere -
- the way they show they care.."


- DEVO



Jussssssssssssssssssst peachy:

I heard today that there are tar balls beginning to wash up at the Jersey Shore - can anyone confirm this?
correctiveshoes621: (Default)
Going to work, tonight. I really DO feel better, just still full of snot and crap and the usual anxiety that comes when I have to call off.

*~*~*

Loaded, 'Pray for the Wildcats', onto a zip and watched it on the Gigantic TeeVee Thing, early this morning - STILL, I love this character. From an online review:

"Shatner labors in vain to resonate as a somnambulistic, aging square named Warren Summerfield. Oddly, Shatner's Eldon Tyrell glasses and proto-Eighties clothing could be interpreted as a bold fashion statement ten years ahead of his time, but his boss feels otherwise: "Oh by the way, Warren, you really ought to get rid of those suits. Those little narrow lapels went out with the gray flannels. You gotta get with it, know what I mean?"

The poignancy conveyed by Shatner as a man whose dignity is slowly being stripped away from his soul is riveting, and can be understood by anyone who had to sit through an episode of "Tek War." Lorraine Gary (Mrs. Jaws-5-Sheinberg) portrays the insecure, status-climbing, addicted-to-remodeling wife. Strangely, the granite blocks of stone in the couple's upscale house convey more emotive ability than these two thespians. As cold-fish Warren, Shatner limps through both his withered American Dream and his limburger dialogue with a hang-dog obsequiance."


WELL, RIGHT. "Hang-dog obsequiance" is what he is SUPPOSED to be portraying. Duh. "Somnambulistic, aging square" is what he FINDS himself to be, is forced to SEE himself as, in comparison...However, I disagree with the whole, 'cold fish' thing - Warren has had his passion TAKEN from him. By life. By the immense grand-piano-on-his-back of responsibility; O, I know it well. By his own ambition - which has failed him, in the end. He's had enough of bowing and scraping, and, has tried in vain to get a handle on it and find SOME SORT of release (with Angie Dickinson) and, has admitted to himself that even THAT was wrong, and, well...I don't want to give it away.

"But not before some heavy existentialism delivered in vintage Shatner-speak, nuggets of fool's gold like: "Acid? I almost tried that once." And "Myself? What does that mean? There is no 'myself'. I'm an actor. A man of a thousand faces...I'm not MYSELF anymore. There's...NOTHING in -- the mirror..."

HAY. I *loved* this speech. The, 'Myself' speech. His delivery is so eerily natural, it gives one pause. I'd wager that, at one time, this advertising executive had a whole literal TRUNK of unfinished novels.

So, yeah. SEE it. :)

P.S. He does not, 'labor in vain to resonate', either. He certainly resonated with ME. A lot.

*~*~*

DEVO. ON COLBERT. I DAMN NEAR DIED OF JOY.
