greenspun.com : LUSENET : R.E.M. : One Thread

hi people... to day my question relates to ...no,not a dream i had,but an argument i had with my big dumb ass brother.i cant say his name over the net coz if he or his dumb ass friends saw it i wouldnt be able to type anymore...coz id have no arms left.....or head,for that matter!!.. we were fighting over music as usual,and every time i slagged his fave. bands his comeback was "THAT F**KIN VIDEO 4 POP SONG 89"!! what am i meant to say to that??the video is tasteless and pointless...so that brings me to my question: WHY THE VIDEO 4 POP SONG 89???!!??

just tell him all of REM's videos aren't like that, and if he still aint convinced, kick him in his big dumb ass ass and run and hide (ahem, forever)...

Tasteless? Try fucking funny!!! It's it retaliation to all that MTV "Pap and Crap" we all had to put up with in the 80's and 90's.

and besides, any band with a video as startlingly moving as Everybody Hurts is allowed the odd cock up

-- Jon Kinsey (eeg@btinternet.com), August 24, 2000.

Totally echoes 108 and Jon. It was a spoofy thing and yes the vid of everybody hurts overules booboos
