I will never get that 3 minutes back, and yet, I find I have to thank you. Now to go inflict this clip on everyone I know....
About halfway through fetaltoaster started shouting "No, this has to be intentionally bad. This has to be on purpose." I think he's still in denial.
My favorite part is the contrast of his super-square-guy voice and the arbitrary melody with the random sexy/gothy scenes.
Still haven't stopped laughing actually. It hurts.
The conversation that caused this:
"I really like The Sisters of Mercy and Type O-Negative, but I have no talent."
"Hey man, don't let that stop you. You have to go for it!"
I'm past "What is this?", past "Why is this?" and into "Dear gods, how can this..?".
"Take note, the costumes are deliberate. The muse wears a bit of ancient Egypt in the present... and the Egyptian queen wears something from the future. A clash of worlds and icons. The lead singer's hair is purposely messed up, his character in chaos."
By "deliberate" and "clash of worlds and icons", he meant: "The Halloween store was having an after-Halloween sale, and this is all we could get."
I see that's a 12th Dynasty, Middle Kingdom Thebian sports bra she's wearing.
The costumer clearly did his research.
I now have a video that sums up what the 90s were like for me.
beyond all the visual and singing FAIL, I'm left wondering how it's possible to have a drum machine keep stuttering ahead in tempo like that.
that was actually my first question too. it's one of those "fuck ups i couldn't recreate if i -tried-" kinda things.
I'll take "misconfigured software sequencers" for $300, Alex.
I see your vampire yuppie goth-like-an-egyptian, and raise you a Proud American (brought to you by Coca Cola, Walmart, Master Card, & American Airlines)
It has a website.
And The White Shadow.
And it was *ahem* released in IMAX and theaters in September. The theater list is coming Real Soon Now.
I'd buy the ringtone.
What's *really* scary is the song from this video is in almost the exact same tempo as the "flapping throat" video from the robot mouth a few posts down.
Two great tastes that go great together!
and while we're at it... you can order his CD from CD-Baby!
Complete with glowing astralpenis cover art and a digital copy of the Hunger music video! Hell yes!
I really, really, hope that those reviews are sock puppets or people being sarcastic.
"His earliest influences were Tori Amos and Jim Steinman."
My favorite part of that is "Format: CD-R." Ya don't say!
Just to clarify: By AMAZING, do you mean AWFUL?
"And you beg for release...."
Yes, yes! Please! Make it stop! The pain!
The saddest thing is that he doesn't even say "beg for release"! He says "beg for relief," making what must have been a herculean effort to ignore the easiest and most relevant rhyme in the history of the English language.
Hello. Here by way of pyrop, that sadist.
Wow. You actually paid attention to the words enough to be able to correct me?? I'm in awe. *makes bowing motions*
It was hard to hear the words above the sounds of pain echoing through my brain.
And is that small hello message for me or for jwz?
I like the Poser 3-quality Anubis effects.
what did Clay People ever do to you to deserve the comparison?
I sometimes wonder if I am the only one who bought all those 21st Circuitry and Re-constriction compilations ...
i can say with some degree of confidence that i own a greater percentage of the recon and 21st catalogs than you do.
despite admittedly being totally awful about 99% of the time, i own the entire clay people catalog, including singles.
did you know the clay people still exist, and are writing music and playing shows?
and then they launched into a "remember when" session, using arcane terms like aggrotech vs. coldwave, mail order, Fifth Column, and House of Usher :)
I think it's funny that Metropolis records finally branched out to artists that didn't use the same studio and equipment right when people stopped buying cds. And don't get me started on Cleopatra, dancing ferret, 21st circuitry and all...
this is fantastic, but i am offended that my role in this has been relegated to "remix".
That girl is way, way too tan for a goth video.
I didn't know they had sports bras in ancient Egypt.
The UFOs brought them.
I can't believe I watched the whole thing.
THE AWFUL, IT BURNS
There's more on their channel. Astaria Films present a James Prince movie: MIND FOREST.
Is it a porno? I think it must be a porno.
[makes assumptions about the musical era that produced this vomit]
[goes to the CD Baby page to look at the stupid reviews]
[sees the release date]
[DIES CHOKING ON BILE]
Well, at least she has a nice ass.
ugh, i hate you so.
