indie pop videos from the 80's = actually kind of pathetic.

also, shameless self-promotion: i am playing saxophone in a band called WAMU, which you will actually have to see to believe. it is chaotic free-form apocalypse, or something like that. think fake lightning bolt meets fake the shaggs. with members of my printer broke. lucky for you, you can catch our first show next saturday, february 19th at the black lodge in eastlake with arrington de dionyso, stickers, and mountainss-- here is the facebook event if you're into that sort of thing. be there or i'll turn into a cyclops, for real.
