Tunesday: Patrick Wolf "Hard Times"

The way the costumes change colour in black light is so amazing... and how that vibrant colour just magically appears on his face? Amazing!

Is it bad that I prefer the black-light version of him? Terrifying, but super cool.

Tunesday: Jenna Marbles "Bounce that Dick"

Jenna, my queen, my Wednesday dream. How do I love thee? Let met count the ways. Oh how I look forward to our digital meeting on (sexual) Wednesdays.

This is an oldie, but a goodie.

This Valentines day, let's flip the patriarchy, shall we?... well, for 4 mins and 45 seconds anyway.

Tunesday: P-Model "2D or not 2D"

P-Model has been active since 1976 and is going strong. They inspired one of my favourite bands, Polysics, which I will definitely be posting a lot of here - stay tuned!

This gem was selected for me by Spotify for my "Discovery Weekly" playlist a week ago, and I gotta say, Spotify, you know me well!

From a quick google, Too Many Zooz are from NYC, and live on bandcamp. You may have come across a video of them playing in a subway system around the world somewhere, because I think I saw one of those on facebook before. If anything, these guys deserve a viral buzz.

  • There's a delightful cover of "Get Busy" by Sean-ah-Paul which should bring you back to an awkward school dance in the good ol' days of grade six where you wanted to dance, but weren't comfortable with the grinding everyone around you seemed to be doing. (The fact that I was a twelve year old who "grinded" makes me a little uncomfortable with my personal history, ha ha) 
  • "Zooz" spelled with an extra z

Max Headroom "Paranomia" by Art of Noise

I am fascinated by Max Headroom. Don't ask me why. I know my friend is absolutely terrified of Max, he just creeps her out. If you don't know who Max Headroom is, he's the "first computer generated tv host"
