Karma finally got me, picked up a virus. Get stuck at the log in screen perpetually. Guy at work can hopefully resurrect it or at least save the contents of the HD.
In the meantime, I was trying to find some videos to upload hearkening back to a local video channel through which I discovered Nine Inch Nails, Ministry, Toni Childs, Smashing Pumpkins and Luka Bloom.
For each one of these I sat mesmerized, transfixed, unable to take my eyes off the screen.
To date myself a little I bought each of these on cassette. Had a loud system in my car then (a bit heavy on the treble) and, well, vinyl wasn't very portable. Just gave my nephew my original issue Smashing Pumpkins Gish cassette (he didn't know how to put it back in the case after he opened it). To date myself a little further I remember when MTV first came on the air (they played music then).
Nine Inch Nails: Head Like a Hole (Remastered) from Nine Inch Nails on Vimeo.
TONI CHILDS - Don't Walk Away by Thander
Ministry - Stigmata by Ministry-Official
The Smashing Pumpkins - I Am One by TheSmashingPumpkins-Official
Luka Bloom - I Need Love on MUZU.TV.
Anyhow, without collapsing into sappy sentimentality on days gone by I found Luka Bloom's album The Acoustic Motorbike where I had originally posted it on on this blog.
It was posted in September of 2009 (been at this awhile...). 150 posts in that month! If you're interested, go back in time and visit. Not sure how many links are still up. Lots of changes since that time.
Hope to be back in business soon...
