Even more Bonnie Tyler

Steven suggested I watch the video for "Total Eclipse of the Heart". And after having watched it...

A) This looks vaguely like something I'd have cooked up in film school had I accidentally eaten a bunch of peyote and got my hands on a modern dance troupe.

B) Bonnie Tyler's hair is awesome. It defies gravity, wind and modern science.

C) I have no @#$%ing idea what this video is about, but Steven is right. It is awesome.



I do dig the suggestion of something really amazing going on here, I just have no idea what it is.

I also never really understood this video, either:


another day at the office for Jim D

I don't get this one either.

So the ragged masses climb the walls to worship at the foot of their Idol and what does he do? Conduct Edisonial fury to blast them off? What sort of a cruel Idol is this?

Just for the record, I once had the pleasure of standing on a Port Aransas beach (slightly drunk) and watching, in shocked amazement, as Rami "Elf" Reid performed one of the most elaborate interpretive dances I had ever seen, all choreographed to "Total Eclipse of the Heart". You should ask her to perform it for you sometime.

I thought it was a recreation of I Am Legend with Idol singing Dancing With Myself as the last human on earth. Or something like that...

Hey, it was the 80s!!!

Yeah, I dunno. I remember thinking everyone was zombies when I was little, and maybe they are... but, first he knocks them off the building, and then he doesn't... anyway, I think its a neat looking video and shows that people actually used to try, even if it didn't work every time.
