WNW: Florida Lady

Because nothing says "wacky" (at least to me) like German synthesizer rap.

Caution: take care not to look directly at the 1980s. Doing so could result in permanent blindness.

Sent this to Teresa because I loved the second line. She's now sending the video link to her friends "so they can all see what I look like."

I find myself forever staring directly at the 80's so as to block out everything else.

...but I need that mofo to stop rapping. Where's the instrumental version?

OK, so this is like hardly relevant to anything but I felt like sharing.

A month or so back there was an episode of Dancing With the Stars where one of the couples (don't ask me who) had to do a dance (I think it was the Paso Doble, but I don't know for certain) and they decided to make it "futuristic".

What struck me was how thoroughly they had hewn to what the 1980s thought the future would look like: wild hair (TONS of hairspray, I'm sure), shiny synthetic fabrics, day-glow neon stripes and blocks sewn onto the clothes.

If you look at the front cover of Cyberpunk 2020, you'll know exactly what I mean. It was quite trippy and awesome.

I must see this.


I'm on Wave now. Teach me?
