That u-matic low band look is getting boring IMO. Is it me or do their tracks/videos have stopped being joyful? Like someone said here "taxidermist stuff". It reminded me "spitifire" of the chemical br. Which was better.
Could have been something incredible. That robot/chucky like baby is terrifying in the right kinda way (strange eyes and gums/teeth/mouth) but the piece goes nowhere and does nothing with the robot infant. The only thing we get is those rediculous robot guitarists and red inferno like triangles.
You could tell that they knew the mouth was something in and of itself. Why did they not capitalize on this?
Even if that infant was eating during the piece - he could have been chewing on metal/rubber/whatever, it doesn't matter - already we'd be stronger. What about having the child literally eating himself. It's staged in a very propaganda like fashion but to no avail. If there was a canabalistic like element involved, then maybe this could have been some kind of look at consumerism and mass media. Cause you know....does it really mean anything to see him announce the words that flash behind him via teleprompter? Yet another promo with nothing. A lot of promise, but very disappointing.
Why are these directors walking comas?
the initial idea is there, just no meat to chew on. the 'spoon feeding our children shit' propaganda was delivered in the first 10 seconds, then the next 3 minutes is spent banging that idea into the grave.
yeah it has to be said i loved the design of the infant robot, but that is not enought to hold an entire video together. i think the environment it was in aswell should have been much darker and scrap yard/electronics graveyard type thing and like lusk says the kid should have been eating the very components it was made of, from its surroundings or from itself. oh well could have been good but failed.
I have the feeling that the whole album has a sort of patronizing tone : tv is bad and controls you, technology is evil but we all love it etc. Messages we don't give a shit about. Where is the teen feeling that was in "homework"?
though it's more haunting, it's as stupid with respect to its subject as the fatboy slim dot com.
directed by the dafts, as was robotrock? sure feels like it...
it was awesome because it had an itty-bitty robot and because it's daft punk, tyring to decipher a meaning behind music that is meant to make people dance is a waste of time...it was fan-freak'n-tastic
