The Snarkster Tries Not to Get Too Stuck in Old Ways...


...So she decided to check out Neuroticfish. Neuroticfish? What kind of a name is that, anyway? But she's a-grooving anyway and particularly loves the Silence of the Lambs angle.

Besides, this version rocks!


They're Coming to Take Me Away, ha, ha (NeuroticFish)



As a wee girl in Sioux City, The Snarkster used to crank up the Napoleon IV version (45 rpm vinyl spun on a turntable, of course) of this charming ditty, much to the horror of the grandparental units--Yes, The Snarkster was raised by Old People.

Fine people, for sure, but it was difficult for a sixteen year old to identify with folks who could remember the advent of radio and were two years old when the Wright brothers made their historic first flight.

Now The Snarkster finds herself wondering about her own relevance in the cyber world of YouTube, iPhones and iPods, Twitter, myspace, xanga, and blogger.

So she found a pumped-up version of this classic song and can only hope that Neuroticfish is still relevant enough to offer TS a veneer of hip.

Besides, events in the past few days finds TS begging for the sanity of a sock-it-to-me, rockin' shrink house song and would highly recommend such a place for...Enough said.

(Is is true that MTV is passe? The Snarkster never did get around to jumping on that boat.)

A glimpse into The Snarkster's youth of Teen Angst, ala 1969 (Cuts from the film Medium Cool):


TommeeT says,

Cuts from Haskell Wexler's Medium Cool (1969) with original soundtrack and music by Mike Bloomfield and Frank Zappa's Mothers Of Invention. "The whole world is watching..." Nuff respect to the original creators...


Back in the day, who could have ever predicted TV would be trumped by something called "YouTube"?

The Snarkster fears for the grandchildren's future.
