The world’s water supply has dried up due to some sort of apocalypse. A beautiful woman holds the secret to where one of the last springs being guarded by a group of Amazons. A “Road Warrior” like crew captures her and tries to make her talk through brutal torture. The hero (Styrker) unites with some of the remaining “good guys” and the Amazons and frees the woman. They go on to a “Road Warrior” type of concluding battle with the bad guys. Written by Paul Sakamoto <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Nick agreed to do a quickie point/counterpoint with me about the merits of OkGo (He wants to kiss all of them), but then when he saw my submission to the post he killed it. I'm posting it here so I don't feel like I wasted the last twenty minutes.
OK Go is Aggressively Mediocre and Their Videos Aren’t Even That Interesting After One View Anyway So…
You know who likes OK Go? The same people who think an anime restyling of Simpsons characters is the height of artistic expression. They’re a part of a group of bands in my mind, along with Phantom Planet, Rooney, Kings of Leon and more, that I like to call “OC Rock.” These bands got hugely successful by playing safe, takes-no-chances radio pop but being Just Quirky Enough to convince your little sister that she was living in the thick of bohemia (along with her groovy purple and orange bedroom set she ordered from the Delias catalog) by listening to a band where one guy has funny glasses instead of Britney Spears.
And you can only build up so much goodwill with a clever video concept. You see it once and you say, “Huh. That’s cool.” And if you’re an adult, you move on.
“Of course, considering the competition, Ok Go have a brilliant future. Even this beats the living lisp out of The Promise Ring. (Oddly, Jade Tree turned Ok Go down— this could have been their retirement fund.) Still, the band fully embraces the cheddar pleasures of major label pop, and for every crispy curveball thrown, there’s a lyric like, “C-C-C-Cinnamon lips and candy kisses on my tongue.” And if these sound like bitter, grizzled complaints, it’s only because I’m trying to brace you for the moment they ditch self-released CDs and come to your town with Fruit-by-the-Foot’s Generation Flav’R Fest.”—
“Huge fireball? What, was Ryu firing a super-hadoken there or something? The majority of that fuel exploded in a huge puff outside of the building. Unless cyclops was at distance firing his optic blast, there was another element responsible.”—4chan on 9/11
“The colors that represent the show have altered several times over the years. The first 4 seasons of Judge Judy were represented by the colors sea green and saffron. Blue and saffron represented the fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth seasons. Since the ninth season, the various graphics on the show have been falu red and saffron. As of the twelfth season, prussian blue had been added to the show’s color scheme for the opening previews of each episode. Season thirteen saw the Judge Judy logo’s colours change from what they once were just before the case began. As Of February 2010. The opening previews colours and logo have changed.”—
