That latest parody of his "Perform this Way" got me wanting to see some more of his newer music videos. They don't yet seem to be on youtube. However, a lot of his old school stuff seems to have been uploaded and in particular I wanted to post this one here. Why? for some reason I never seen it before and it's of a song that I used to have the album for on casette tape and I used to listen to that tape quite a bit when I first discovered Al as a child in the 80's yet again I never actually seen this music video up until now. But the video is EXACTLY what I what I had in mind when thinking of a music video for that song. It doesn't parody a particular song from them but is a Devo parody in general and I like it quite a bit.... a lot of eye candy in this beholder's eye of the wacky\weird\funny variety going on in this music video:



I was always amused by lines like "Mashed potatoes can be your friends!"

I think I have the AppleTV squared away mostly. The previous flash drive I tried using to install software on it didn't work. However the one recommended by ATVFlash worked like a charm. It now has boxee (to access the internet video services other than youtube which comes built in). It has perian and flip4mac to access videos other than the quicktime\itunes approved ones. It can access network shares and any media files that are on them.

Right now I got about 50GB worth of movies\videos on my computer in a shared folder and it can see them all. I spent quite some time customizing how the folders\files display on the AppleTV... when you are going through the list it shows movie posters and for folders it shows PNG images of my choice. I did have some troubles at first of course with getting it to connect and then I had to change some settings to get some videos to play better but it works great now.

The only thing is I don't want to fill up my hard drive with just videos so I'm still planning on getting a network attached storage unit later which will make my video library independent of any computer. There's one that has 2TB and is about $320 that I have my eye on.

The USB support ATVFlash installs works good too.. and having keyboard makes entering searches a lot easier. I would like to get a wireless RF keyboard for the AppleTV to put on the coffee table. I found a mac specific one online that also has a trackpad that would be ideal for that.

I've even installed some emulators on the AppleTV.. basically it's a stripped down Mac running a special version of Tiger. The only emulator I haven't gotten to work yet though is the Nintendo 64 one. But I've hooked up a gamepad and played NES and SNES games already on there. They look better than they used to back in the day. The colors are much more pristine and clean. A wireless gamepad would be ideal for this.

I discovered this group a few months ago when NIN released a sampler of their "Lights in the Sky" tour for their album "The Slip". This group is\was touring with NIN. They had a different song in the sampler (Crimewave) but it got me interested in hearing more so I got their self titled album. Then I discovered this song which has become my favorite song from them so far off of that album. The song actually sounds better when you are listening to it on the album but you get the idea from this music video. This song may end up reaching number one in my most played in iTunes list. I like how some of the sounds they use sound like old NES music.
