realization #24

I only listen to music I have discovered from movie and television soundtracks. This is particularly true for eighties and nineties music and the beauty that was the music of the early aughts. You know, that sort of era where I was pretty much hung up on The Spice Girls and The Beatles.

I bring this up because I just realized I have a really kick-ass collection of favorited YouTube videos that are largely inspired by Dawson's Creek, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Empire Records, and John Hughes movies. And like, Psych, which is greatly 80s-inspired.

The The - This is the Day
Aimee Mann - This is How It Goes
Cream - Tales of Brave Ulysses
Bif Naked - Lucky
Johnny Clegg & Savuka - Dela (I Know Why The Dog Howls At The Moon)
Modern English - I Melt With You
A Flock of Seagulls - I Ran
Billy Idol - Dancing with Myself
Madonna - Like A Prayer
Tears For Fears - Head Over Heels
Toto - Africa

Tell me that is not an epic playlist. It doesn't even matter if you think the music is good. Good, bad--what does it matter? It defined a generation. This is our history, people.

And just in case you  have no interest in clicking any of those links and enlightening yourself to some TRUE MAGIC, here are a couple of drawing homework assignments that I have scanned and PS'd. Just to like, keep up some semblance of me being an art school student.

Oh, Trent.

(P.S. I just realized it has gotten so late that the royal wedding is about to start. Ha. Ha. No.)
