Arrgh! That Purple Jumpsuit!

Thinking about the 80s, I stumbled across the Batman TV show of music videos: Styx's "Mr. Roboto." What strikes me most about watching it now is how little the other band members are in this. I think as a kid, I thought they were in the Mr. Roboto suits, but those were probably dancers. Or derelicts. Or even genuine racial-stereotypotrons imported from Japan. I think any of those possibilities is more likely than Dennis DeYoung convincing JY and the other guys to carry him around like a group of robot cheerleaders.

A word of warning. You're really only gonna want to watch this once.

Domo Arigato, Mr. Rob. Domo.

Now I feel like I have to hunt down the "Heavy Metal Poisoning" video to get the fair and balanced coverage of the Kilroy saga. (To quote JY: Huuh-yeeeeeeahhhh.)

Hunt no more.

I think that may be the first time I've seen that video in its entirety. Shall I watch it again? nnnnaahhhh..
