Each year on New Year’s Eve day, I round up all of my not-yet-redeemed free product manufacturer coupons that are expiring at midnight on December 31st and head to Whole Foods and other neighborhood Supermarkets to load up on free stuff! Woo! This year’s haul includes ice cream, milk, frozen vegetable soufflés, and cottage cheese. Food just tastes better when it is free.
Even better, imagine how excited I was to notice this large Plush Shark Toy perched atop the illuminated sign on checkout register Number 9!
It’s always a pleasure when the visual aspect of a video rises up to meet the quality of the song, or vice versa. Sadly this is not a given, but When the Ribbon Breaks, which I am lead to believe is just one guy, has created this lulling, startling visual montage with a comfortingly familiar retro-future feel that also manages to evoke a mild feeling of dystopia. Well played! The sound is what I’d call Electronic White Soul: Like Paul Young singing with Kraftwerk, if I can get old school with my references, as I am wont to do. Enjoy!
