more scatteriness

In the past few nights, I’ve seen Sin City, Kill Bill and Reservoir Dogs. Needless to say, my dreams have been interesting. – Guitars are cool and people who play them are hot. I totally get it now. – I’ve actually been working on academic nonsense since returning from Buffalo. – Maybe I should switch cell phone companies. – I think “Hey Mickey” is about a girl, although it says “guy” once. (Mickey/Michaela) – Big hugs and congrats to Kap and Maggie on the arrival of Genevieve!

    It says “guys *like* you Mikki” (emphasis mine) therefore not necessarily about a guy. tricky.

    aha, good catch. there’s also the “i’ll take it like a man” line, so gender is evidently plastic. plus, there’s the cheerleader imagery of the video (cheerleading:girls::football:boys, eh?) and holding hands, which girls often do in ambiguous ways.

    hmm, interesting, I haven’t seen the video – cheerleading has often been presented sapphic contexts.

    I enjoy how both ambiguity and plasticity have been discussed here. We’ve also covered similies.

    Wow, how did Antonia Christina Basilotta get in the mix?

    Before 1982’s “Mickey” her one song was “Breakaway”, recorded circa 1966, and the black-and-white strobo-spirit ur-MTV dance film made at that time by Bruce Conner, with Basil dancing and her song playing, forwards and back, is a CLASSIC.

    You can watch more guitar movies here.

    I got the 4 Square in Seoul. It’s beautiful. Thank you.

    Musicians are hot in general. It’s the whole playing with electricity thing. That’s why Benny Franklin is my hero.
