The Aimee Mann contest...

I've been pursuing the entries to the Aimee Mann video contest, trying to see how I size up. In the process, I'm noticing something.

Those who are trying to edit together videos with their fancy-pants equipment, cutting together shots of them singing in various locales, occasionally with a wipe, fade, or distortion effect...

well, it reminded me of MTV circa 1983. Seriously...some of these are honest-to-goodness blasts-from-the-past.

Now, a quarter-century later, we all can make early Pat Benatar-style videos...starring ourselves. Whoda thunk it?
