Sunday Night Music Club XVIII

I wish I'd never started with that stupid roman numeral scheme. It actually requires conscious effort to come up with the roman equivalent to "18". I should of just stuck with plain ol' decimal. Or even binary, which is easier for me since I'm a bit of a computer geek.


Piece o' cake.

Although, in two more installments I'll be able to use "XX", which is cool. I'll have to come up with something special for that.

Much has been made lately of the 20th anniversary of the Nirvana album "Nevermind" being released in September 1991. And pretty much every song on that album is amazing. But I was looking at Nirvana music videos in the wake of all the recent publicity, and I came across "Heart-Shaped Box" from "In Utero".

I forgot how weird and subversive this video actually was! I watched it again for the first time in probably over 10 years, and I was blown away by it. The content and symbolism is wickedly anarchic, and the cinematographer's use of depth of field (focus) as a creative tool is amazing.

(if an ad pops up you have the option to skip it at the beginning of the video)

That number used to be my zip code back in the day. So, for me- Piece o' mail!

I'd never seen that video before, cool...

Here's one for the upcoming RNC:
