I always like DEVO, but never really went searching for their videos other than Whip It.
This one is pretty cool, and fellow generation 80's folks will like it.

Oh, man have you missed out. They had a LOT of great videos. Here's "Beautiful World", which takes on a totally different meaning in the last half. Also BTW has a few moments of a Rocket Belt (backpack), and some smoke trails left by ASP sounding rockets (right edge of video).

Watch it on youtube, using the LINK BELOW, so you can check out the various other DEVO videos in the Mix List along the right side.

Saw them live in Boulder, back in the late 80's. Would love it if they toured through here again (yes, they're still at it, less Bob Casale, who passed in 2014)

Saw them several times, Gates of Steel tour with those light towers behind them...was probably at the height of their career.
Caught them a couple of years ago, they use a huge back lit screen to good effect.

This vid was a bit disturbing......................:

This one is my favorite right now:

Too funny, and I just need a good laugh!

DEVO is like the only band in the Eighties where they sometimes run after people shooting guns. All the other bands were worried about karma and stuff.
DEVO is like Alvin Toffler Real.

I made a DEVO disc, and put these two songs in the same order. Two of my favorites.
Good call!
I liked these songs as a kid, and had the LP but grew out of them when I was like 8. I started liking Run D.M.C., Iron Maiden and Grim Reaper, then it was on to everything else, but I always seem to come back to the long lost and forgotten songs of my youth for the inspiration I need to get motivated to action sometimes.
My youth was extremely hazardous, but constant attention to detail and safety got me through it, mistakes and all.
You can only do your best, and if you think that will ALWAYS be good enough, you are setting yourself up to fail. There will eventually come against you a force too mighty, and the fact is always only more guaranteed by your willingness to sacrifice everything to defy the thing that scares you................ ...........

Holy crap! I think I just figured everything out!
I'm not scared of anything anymore!
My life is a blessing, and not a curse!
I'm not very religious, but I am quite spiritual, and what my life is telling me is that I am really wishing that I could have a job I enjoyed, like I used to, but maybe get paid batter than my disability to do it. I can obviously get some stuff done even when I'm hurt,, so what the hell.
I obviously would have to be employed doing nothing but research and development on materials, and would only require some interns from countries where they teach real life, and we could come up with some fine products for modern society, yet they could possibly be misused, so they are on the banned list now.
To a Soldier, yes, a Flamethrower is a Weapon, as it should be. To a Civil Engineer, that same device, bearing the same N.S.N. is a Tool for pest control, forest fire control, controlled burns....
Pelletizing expansible foam is easy peasy, but your gun better run smoothly, or you could end up carbonized!!!!:y:

Twisting ates of steel, yeah, no problem. Try twisting away the gates of Carbon.

And there is the always present fact that you may someday have to do a super thing.

This song is really creepy, but that makes it fun! I'm totally non-creep, so it is funny even though it is creepy.:)
Leave it to bands like DEVO and GWAR to make you wonder if it is worth it to like music.:wink:

Patterns are a constant for me.
I'd think they are for everybody, but I have strayed once or twice, and seen others do so.

Yay! One I have not heard yet, with a great video!

[video=youtube;sCgJa3wDXA0]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sCgJa3wDXA0&index=25&list=RDIOLRmfxsSCI[/video]


At like the 27-28 second mark, a Hello Kitty comes flying out of the TV, and smashes to pieces. I think it has it's left paw raised, which means something different than if it has it's right paw raised, but it gets destroyed against the wall, so it is just hilarious, and means nothing.

At 1:19, there's Booji, in typical Booji form, mishandling industrial waste products in the Gen-Boy Factory and paying the price.

couldn't help but notice the DEVO nuclear waste handlers in that one plus the Buckaroo Banzai parchute clip in the end scene.

Here's the DEVO nuclear waste guys in a Movie Trailer : with Neil Young, Dennis Hopper (in his Blue Velvet character at 01:11 ) and Dean Stockwell :

I'm almost hitting Middle Age myself, and while I deny the degradation at every turn, my corporeal being is not up to the task, meaning I now need special protective measure for things like PPE and the like.
I'de been fairly lax, and am proud to say that I now am not.
Chemical and Respiratory Safety took me 40 Years to learn, and there are some pock-marks on the road to knowing that might have been avoided if I was always just doing nerdy things like rockets.
Sadly, I put myself in some bad places on purpose and paid the pound of flesh, but I'm doing ok as long as I dong have to bust ass doing something. I think I need to find something to do, and that is what always gets me in trouble. I

I'm pretty unstoppable, and have wrought out a whole lot of stuff for better or worse, but I got hundreds of years left in me, so....
Don't waste time trying to understand my Potato. Eat and enjoy your own Potato.
