Got about 3 minutes to spare? Check out this crazy cool video from seb martel. It’s chock full of beautiful anachronisms. There’s even a steel guitar (be still my heart).
P.S. Can anyone out there translate the French for me?
Thanks, Ben! Totally forgot about the bot translators. Looks like a breakup song. Hmmm.
I have every intention of making it out to Austin someday. Everyone says it’s a lot like Madison.
I was working at Madison’s Half Price Books back when Slacker came out in 1991. We gave away tix so I got to take a bunch of my friends for free. It was spooky how much it felt like my own life, including a scene in a HPB store.
Years later, I was at the photo section meeting at SAA in Philly. The chair of the section had a voice that seemed familiar, but I couldn’t quite place it. Turns out it was John Slate — who played the conspiracy guy in the book store scene of Slacker. The scene that was filmed at Half Price Books. I made him sign my badge. Seriously.
Small world, no?
P.S. Thanks for the kudos, it made my day.
This site has the lyrics, and I found that pumping them through Google Translate was just about as comprehensible as my own translation.
You’ve got a wonderful blog, by the way. If you’re ever in Austin, Texas, please look us up. I imagine we’d have a great time talking steampunk and manuscripts.
