The video for "Last Dance With Mary Jane" is another one that definitely colors your impressions of the song

"Ma'am, please empty your pockets of CDs and music...What's this, hidden inside your Gentle Giant box set? A Britney Spears CD??" :)

@Homing: Clay always plays that one on Halloween, "DOA" is a great one. On SiriusXM Deep Tracks I've actually heard a few other Bloodrock tracks, so they still have some fans out there.

And yet, speaking of beans..there is no Mexican Radio down there
  4:56am
Caryn:

We watched "Pink Floyd live at Pompeii" in university. Out of all the songs they did, the extended "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun" is the one that sticks in the mind.
I could live with Ann-Margret in the beans, even if it was a bit weird, but the chocolate after that just looks like sludge. Ugh.
  4:57am
Yankee Poodle:

I love that Floyd LP with the cover shot of all their equpmwnt laid out on the road. Might be 'Meddle.' Can't remember.

  5:29am
fred von helsing:

Found: "What began as a wholesome night of watching the world's most powerful athletes try to cripple each other for personal glory and money turned into something tawdry and lewd during Madonna's halftime show when M.I.A. flipped off the camera. The NFL and NBC both apologized, but by then I was already hiding in my bathtub, hugging my knees, rocking back and forth and crying. I don’t even know who won the game."
  5:29am
ausmanx:

didn't madonna look a little past her prime at superbowl? and i'm sorry, but to the rest of the world some token slogan saying "world peace" at the end of her set in the most war hungry country on the planet seemed a little offensive to me...

Ohhhh! Don't know of Aubrey Plaza, but cool name.

@ausmanx: I only watched a YouTube of the Madonna show, but felt she should have just bought commercial air time...
  5:32am

A consensus with people I know on the halftime show was that "she was good, for Madonna..."

Dirty Elvis:

@T-Zero Aubrey Plaza is Julie's new time-travelling girl-crush

ausmanx:

well, i must say i did lament the tragic appearances of The Who and Springsteen at superbowl too, Julie. i just think it might be nice if the biggest audience on the planet could be handed over to anyone younger than 50!
  5:40am
Marmalade Kitty:

I wonder why they don't just get on with the football! (don't know why it's called football, the only time the ball is kicked is for a conversion point..? and the "ball looks more like a peanut than a ball..?) It's a game not a concert or a show and the commercials every time the ball goes out of play!!!
  5:40am
Matt from Springfield:

@G: Speaking of time-travelling girl-crush, I've tried to bring 20 year old Stevie Nicks over to my place many times, haven't been successful yet. Maybe once I tweak my fluxcapacitor a bit...

NENA! Sehr schön!

@FVH: I would LOVE that, she stills performs well. The problem is all the other Yanks would be scratching their heads and wondering "who the hell is this?" No sense in some (~98%) people!

Heh, her age had nothing to do with it for me. I wasn't a big Madonna fan even back when... Don't dislike her, just not a fan and now she just seems dated...

Dirty Elvis:

"Many people live in emotional darkness because they have never fully enjoyed a child spirit in their overly serious lives. The child wanders homeless in the lives of many adults, who are captivated by psychologies of the "inner child" and books and films of childlike fantasy, such as the stories of Harry Potter And the Disney movies.
"Modern society, so adult and sophisticated, so busy at work and serious about knowing everything, has lost much of its childhood. Instead of playing actively and seriously, we let other people entertain us, and instead of enjoying a strong feeling of community, we are highly dependent on our electronic connections." ~Thomas Moore

@Julie: I think the media hypes them now more than anything... You know, talk'em up so their masters can keep hiking up the per second cost.

I was watching some of the U.S psa films for driving safety, OMG!

Yes Kitty?

@MK: at least since the early 80s (The Apple 1984 commercial is probably the earliest example of an "event" Super Bowl ad, but there might have been earlier ones)

Signal 50 !

I actually should just keep quiet, as I never pay attention to football, period, or the ads....

Matt from Springfield:

@MK: US road safety PSAs aren't usually as extreme as the UK, but the Drivers Ed films that they show in schools...Yeowch! Those are designed to scare high school students and keep them driving safe (for at least a few months!)
  5:54am

gotta run to lunch... great show !! NENA 4EVA

Marmalade Kitty:

aha, I had'nt realized they were "Drivers Ed films.. the music in the films, so emo!
  5:54am
Caryn:

When I think of UK road safety PSAs, I keep thinking of David Prowse as the Green Cross Code man. Ah, Darth Vader telling the kids how to stay safe when walking to school...

Everybody dance now
  5:55am
Matt from Springfield:

@MK: Much like the notorious "Apaches" film, I think intended to scare schoolchildren.
@FVH: Signal 30, produced by Ohio highway safety division in 1959.

Man. Matt lives just down the street from me (as it were) but I can NOT get up early enough for this show like he does! :)

Don't remember hearing "The Gathering" before. I likes.

Van in DC:

The Super Bowl ad costs are linked to ratings of recent games...since it is so widely watched, they are able to charge enormous prices. Wasn't initially like that. Then when the ad prices became an annual "new high" the commercials themselves became an "event" like they are now.

Van in DC:

For the record, I think Madonna's halftime was terrific. I have no clue who the "MIA" lady is, nor anyone else that performed.

Oooooh, yes....a 20ish Stevie would be awesome to have :) (She's still hot today!)

@Julie - there are a lot of sites out there that have all the SB commercials... here's one

I am much busier at work than before due to my coworker quitting (leaving me alone), and away from my desk much more than I was in Dallas...bits & pieces listening...looks like I will have the last 1 hr 15 minutes to finish up with tomorrow. Great show so far!
