no pictures

I have just toured post-Katrina Bayou La Batre for the first time, and in spite of having a digital camera with me, I did not take even one picture.

First, it would be anti-climactic compared to pictures you've probably seen from elsewhere and from sooner after the storm.

Second, because unless you had a "before" picture for comparison, the "after" picture wouldn't make any sense. There were houses along the waterfront that are now just concrete slabs, but unless you knew about the houses, some of which survived the 1906 and 1916 storms that ended Bayou La Batre's reign as a seaside resort, a concrete slab just isn't impressive to look at.

And third, the most widespread visible change is not demolished houses, it is people living in motor homes, trailers, and tents (yes, tents) outside of otherwise normal looking houses. The real damage is all inside, where you can't see it. I just couldn't bring myself to take pictures of the trailers and tents.

Double Shot of that 80's Flvxx

Sort of.

First up, embryonic, early-80's version of "Flamethrower of Love", utilizing a different piece of hardware that was later abandoned for something much hotter.

Leaf Blower of Love

The next song is named after its chord progression. Almost but not quite an 80's song, it is in fact firmly rooted in 1991 (the year that "Prince of Thieves" came out) and localized to that part of the American South where all good girls love the song "I'm Proud to Be An American" and evangelize their rocker boyfriends.

Welcome to the 80's

My new musical project is Flvxxvm Florvm is the Evil Empire. After spending the last album paying tribute to 80's video games, this one takes you directly into the fictional world in which Flvxxvm Florvm was actually active in the 1980's.

Warning: Flvxxvm Florvm really sucked back then. And the songs more more overtly political. But with lyrics so bad that you couldn't tell what side of aisle they were on.

So with further ado..

The Year is 1984

The Year is 1984
and I can't wait for the nuclear war!

Sometimes you gotta lose before you can win
that's I vote republican
provoke the reds till they attack
then we'll get our country back

The Year is 1984
and I can't wait for the nuclear war!

Let 'em bomb the welfare queens
and illegal aliens
leave the ones who know how to fight
and the ones who know their rights

The Year is 1984
and I can't wait for the nuclear war!
