  1. Yeah, but compared to tripe like this - (budget, maybe $1,000?) the exotic locales of the Duran Duran videos were a godsend. Back to EVH - Hot for Teacher just couldn't be made today. You've got two different teachers/strippers gyrating in front of kids! Eddie's performance in that video makes me laugh - he couldn't get DLR's choreography down. Today I learned that Phil Hartman supplied the voice for Waldo in that vid.
  2. My picks are not too far from that. I would also say Duran Duran, David Bowie, Hot for Teacher, and I'm Just a Gigolo - which is probably my #1 video of all time. I remember watching USA network's "Night Flight" on Friday night sleepovers - waiting for the "unedited" Girls on Film, or another one by Berlin (forget the song) that were too risque to show during daylight hours...
  3. Dweezil Zappa has put out some kind words for EVH. I know they had a close relationship. Eddie showed up in person for Dweezil's talent show in HS, and lent him his guitar for the performance. Dweezil also says that Eddie was the first person to call him after FZ passed.
  4. Who else would be on your MTV Mount Rushmore?
  5. All OK here - went without power for about 24 hours. Worst part about that was that we couldn't get cell reception for the first 12 hours as well - must have knocked out a cell tower.
  6. I want to say that I only became aware of the Ramones because of Rock n Roll High School.
  7. Ha. Same. I can still hear the closing song (Goodnight sweetheart, Goodnight) with Bowser doing his usual Dip De Dips
  8. I went to a Sha-Na-Na concert as a 3rd grader in the late 70s in Austin MN. This would have been in the thick of their TV-show run, which looking up now says it lasted from 78-81. My first show that I went to of my own volition was in 1985 - U2, Unforgettable Fire tour - Armory, Minneapolis MN.
  9. I see Netflix added the Scorsese documentary (again?) recently. Such a great film. My wife was watching over her shoulder as I started it up the other night. She started chuckling when Dylan started belting out "DIDN'T YOUUUUUUUUUUU?!?!?!" during the Like a Rolling Stone sequence.
  10. Got a shipping notice for mine a week ago today, but I still can't get tracking information on it - the tracking number they provided says that USPS is still waiting for it...
  11. Hell, I'd watch solo competitive hackysack at this point.
  12. More bike rides (though this weather has been too chilly to bring the kids, and now it's too snowy! More time to open up those Travis Picking For Beginners books I bought myself for christmas. More time to cook fantastic weekday dinners. More time to research installing a bidet attachment, while I contemplate toilet paper supply lines. More time to dive into Star Wars Rebels, and Star Wars Clone Wars episodes with my boys. More time for long-form Lego projects (the Apollo 11 model took 4 hours on day 1. Now what?)
  13. Calling all and any art-house film buffs - the Criterion Collection app (a movie streaming app) has been on tilt lately - with a Godard retropective that came out last week, and one on the career of Tartovsky that was released today. They are continually cycling new movies into their library, and I have never been left wanting ever since I subscribed (I think it's $11 a month?) last May.
