Aaaaah! It's the 80s!

There seems to be a sudden surge in interest in cultural artifacts (how's that for putting it diplomatically) from the 80s. I find this both extremely entertaining and horrifying.

Starting with the downright weird: a good friend of mine from college found this, and gave it to a mutual friend who posted it. Found at YouTube. The Dog Police were contestants in one of the MTV Basement Tapes competitions. I don't think they won, but they should have.

Now that you're warmed up....links to a couple of hundred 80s videos.

The Good

The Bad

The Weird

And that just got through the D's. Lots of good and goo here. Don't miss this one - Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, White Lines. Directed by Spike Lee and starring a very young Lawrence Fishburne.

I also stumbled across this oddity recently, with more 80s videos and somewhat snarky commentary.
