Just a quick check-in, as my situation still isn't settled and I don't have consistent, proper internet access yet. Make of that what you will, and please don't ask me how I'm managing this post as it's rather weird and complicated. ;-P
Anyway, while I've been on hiatus I've seen lots of things I wanted to post, but didn't for various reasons. This is what finally brought me completely out of hiding: the tour visuals for Muse's performance of "Darkshines" at this year's Reading and Leeds festivals. Now, I try very hard (sometimes sitting on my hands!) not to rave too much about Muse here; after all, this is a fetish blog, not a music blog. But of course Muse is all about SF weirdness, paranoia and mind control; and this video has it all in spades. In fact, it even has a UFO trying to abduct a cow - and apparently failing because the cow is too heavy! Now, how can you say no to a video like that? ;-) Also, be sure to notice the x-ray of the disappearing brain, an underplayed but excellent metaphor for total MC.
