    Reality check settles in.

    This lady should be a final authority for music videos. Now there’s unwatchable, unless they’ve improved since I last seen them a few years back.

    Rather apt, RobbyC–as he’s trying to show how lame Alex’s presentation is by presenting it just as lamely!

    Perfect for EwwwwTube.

    Gweedo: no, the music videos haven’t improved. Those days are long gone.

    Hasn’t been a really first-rate music video, IMHO, since Talking Heads did their FIRST version of “Once In A Lifetime.” Concert videos? Feh.

    At least Alex did something with her hair… although what exactly she did, deponent sayeth not.

    couple of years ago, I read about a Czech film maker who did an entire movie on a cell phone. At the first (and maybe the only) showing, people bailed out of the theater nauseous because of the jerkiness and erratic movement of the images on the screen. Similar to motion sickness.

    What gets me is how Alex can be this divorced from reality. Alex has more of her mother in her than either Mike or Alex wants to acknowledge.

    Now, if she’s a really fine teacher, she will inspire Alex to go back and do some truly in-depth interviews and studies, write them up as a biography of Lacey Davenport, her life and times, polish it up, and submit it to publishers.

    Nope, I don’t see that happening, just wishful thinking on my part.

    Alec is a computer geek. Always has been - that’s why she and Kim got along so well. When computer geeks try and branch out to other areas of creative life, it seldom ends well.

    I had the same experience with the “Blair Witch Project.” I had to leave the theatre to put my head between my knees for a while due to extreme motion sickness from the jerky camera work, and while I was there, one of the ushers stopped by to thank me for leaving before I was sick - since apparently they had been cleaning up barf at just about every showing since the movie (and I use that term loosely) opened.

    I agree - Alex does seem to be taking after her mother just a bit here.

    As for why Trudeau is continuing with this story line: I don’t think it’s really that lame, and a guy who has to have a strip every single day has to go with whatever he can come up wtih.

    P.S.: I personally think the music video is the single most useless art form ever invented.
