The Re-Tron
I love the eighties! It was the era when I grew up. Max Headroom! Duran Duran! Laurie Anderson! And of course, the movie Tron. It's funny that all of those things I just listed are thought of as computer-generated, when in reality all of them used analog techniques to create the illusion of a purely digital world. They all dreamed of a world where the computer ruled, but had to use cut-and-paste techniques to achieve their vision.

So, of course I can't wait for the new Tron movie. I used a little cut-and-paste of my own (and my bad Photoshop talents) to create the following logo:


In the meantime until the sequel is released, please feel free to watch the following eighties video!

Here's a fun Tron mash-up....

(it helps if you're familiar with a certain movie from the 30's).

I've never seen "Modern Times"! Or any Chaplin movie, for that matter. I have a lot of DVD catching up to do...

I loved Max Headroom. :-)

I keep waiting for Peter Murphy and Midge Ure to turn up again.

I still cannot express how much I wanted a Fairlight back in high school, but that was way too expensive at the time. (I had a couple of Korgs and did some bleeps and bloops but never came up with much.) But my musical heroes were all there--AoN, Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush, Laurie Anderson, Thomas Dolby.

yay for Art of Noise, I did a great mash of Kiss between their version and Prince's years ago. I wish I still had the tape :(

and damn... Max Headroom, I just watched the paranomia video the other day, such a trip.
