Video


Has anyone seen Electric Dreams? It's insane. One of the worst made, strange feeling, badly acted movies ever. It's so rad. The plot: dude (Harold from Twin Peaks) gets computer, falls for a girl, spills champagne on computer, computer becomes a thinking entity, learns to talk (voiced by Bud Cort) and falls for same girl, so of course dude and computer fight it out. So 80's, so weird, so awkward and so beautiful (really!) in parts. It takes a certain type to enjoy and I can imagine an ARAWA reader would probably fit the description. Unfortunately it's not available on DVD and might not ever be. It's that bad. However net savvy people may be able to secure a copy if they just knew where to look...

Anyway, the soundtrack contains some cheese classics (Together in Electric Dreams by Giorgio Moroder and Philip Oakey anyone?) and this quirky Jeff Lynne solo number. Love it!

Yay for Mr. G! I'm so glad you still come through here... It wouldn't be the same without you. Like Legend without Tom Cruise...
