I'm on a roll...

Anybody remembering my Big Moping Weekend in 2010?

The universe clearly loves me, because on Friday evening I had an e-mail in my inbox from my trusted ticket provider, saying that A-ha have reunited and are going on tour again next year. I guess I should feel cynical about artists doing Farwell Tours and then popping back up 5 years later, but I just don't have it in me. It's not that A-ha are my most favorit band - that would be Depeche Mode, if you must know - but they've written consistently good pop for ... let me see.......OH FUCK .....30 YEARS!!!! Okay, And' now I'm feeling very old and depressed.

For those of you who appreciate that sort of thing - first time a-ha (well, any Norwegian band, actually) made it to #1 on the UK charts. Proper 80's nostalgia - look at that hair, and the fashion assesoirs (leather band wrist bands) and those 1000 m of cable. (And Morten's face - I think my teenage self can be forgiven for going a bit weak in the knees.....). Unfortunately they 'dressed up' for the occasion, though you can marvel at the waist hight jeans, the socks-over-trousers-thing and the men-scarfs and headbands. Just use your imagination.

In May this year we had the 3. VidUKon, again in Cardiff. I had a really hectic spring this year and not much time on my hands for vidding on top of doing some other VidUKon related things, so I opted to vid a movie - limited source, always a win when vidding to a tight deadline. Since it was a German movie, I wanted a German language song, but not having lived in the country for some years I'm not really up-to-date with what's in, wha's hot and what's good, so I spend forever and an eternity on youtube, swinging from link to link. In the course of which I came across two gen love songs (e.g. using the 2. person rather than 3.) with same sex couples in the offical vid (F/F & M/M, respectively). Neat.

Yay for official music videos that do not assume that all listeners are straight. )
