Posting through posterous so if it doesn't work screw it. If it does, expect more annoying solipsistic shit. If it works and if it is still somehow wrong (like reposting a million times) lemme know.First time I really got into these types of movies was when I was just out of high school and discovering herb (not Edelman, him I was already familiar with). While watching them my old man who had finally been forced to buy a 25" color portable TV (his conditions/reasons for putting it off) would come in and yell, "What the hell are you watching THIS for?!?!?! We finally got a COLOR TV and THIS is what you watch?!!?" I was watching color *wink. Either way it was quite an overwhelming spectacle for the newly stoned Lex10, what with the shopping mall sized sets, the Busby Berkeley imagery, and whatnot. These particular few seconds are well and truly classic. A couple of observations of these few seconds: The focus pulling going in and out bespeaks (?!) a time before cinematic technological perfection - there's humans at work, and it's poetically beautiful to me. Secondly, that Ginger Rogers is a real sexual response producer and at the time, I was in love with her . Third, trippy, innit? Enjoy.

....it's based on the booths at Morimoto in Philadelphia. When sitting in them they change color very gradually, so slowly it's almost difficult to notice, especially after a coupla junmai sake or MC2, his Midori, lime and Champagne cocktail. I went way more pastel for better readability, but the same effect hopefully. 1px x 1px animated .gif
I'm really digging his stuff after seeing it at Martin Klasch.
Rummage - it's worth it, have a look. Also blah blah, printing methods of technologies past, blah blah evident political message, etc.....
