i have videos. excellent videos. i’m not linking them right out here, but they’ll be uploaded before too long, & i’m happy to send a download link upon request.
i have bush’s ‘greedy fly’. i don’t have words to describe it except perhaps dark, surreal, & brilliant. oh, & not for the faint of stomach. lyrics, yes.
& this one – is it a cliche? still moves me anyway – van halen’s ‘right now’. lyrics don’t do the brilliance of the texty visuals justice whatsoever, keep that in mind. i had the hardest time of any of these, picking three screenshots. & oh how i enjoyed the entire screenshotting process. waiting with finger poised over printscreen, capturing a moment, then choosing fifty pixels for the thumbnail – incredibly relaxing & theraputic after a day wrangling the sort of code that hurts my head. i’m not your traditional dyslexic, but i have backwardsness, or switchedness – if there are opposites, or sets of things, being able to tell them apart is next to impossible. i have to develop a mnemonic, i had to do this even for left & right (when very young i would make an eating motion with my right hand, later i would just make the same gesture in my mind, now, i more or less have it down, but it took decades.) still don’t know starsky from hutch. still. so imagine me with complicated nested if / then / else / unless / type-statements. owie. but hey, i made it work. & since i needed this to be able to make some beastly complicated clients’ sites work, well, it had to be done. & since it was so stressful, the first time had to be fun. and in the end, it was.
wow there was a beery little digression, yes? it’s been a good & bad day, very wistful in parts, that is when it wasn’t screaming frustrating.
oh, & if you happen to be searching the lyricbase, whatever you do, do *not* leave the default search text, or a blank field (which would happen if you click the box, it’s an auto-clear field), in there when you click the search button. & for the love of maude, don’t keep clicking the button after that, six or seven times. & i can’t be held responsible for what happens if you do, ok?
