SONG OF THE WEEK: "Spot" by Mahatma Randy and the Randy Mahatmas (2009)

Nuclear war is a thing of the past, but it was always in the future if Science Fiction was to be believed. Now that there's a new Mad Max film out there, I thought I'd post this. It's a little too '70s for the '00s, but whatever.

SONG OF THE WEEK: "The Troubled Spirit" from Space: 1999 (1976)

This is the teaser for an episode of Space: 1999. Well worth a look for a bunch of reasons, most of which involve it being completely unlike anything else in the series:

We've got good direction, great cinematography (In all fairness, the cinematography of the series was pretty above average in the first season), a nice juxtoposition of the ultrafuturistic and the spooky, the *Really* neat wandering POV camera, and it's all synched nicely to the weird music.

SONG OF THE WHENEVER-WE-FEEL-LIKE-DOING-ONE: "Preliator" by Globus (2006)

Welcome back to our wildly-infrequently-scheduled "Song of the week" feature. Now, ordinarily, we only do songs that are about SF (A surprising number) or songs with videos that are SF related (Also a surprising number) or both (Somewhat less common than you'd figure, surprisingly). We generally don't do FMVs or songs that *aren't* about SF because, hey, what's the point?

SONG OF THE WHENEVER-WE-FEEL-LIKE-DOING-ONE: "Space-Age Love Song" from Sym-Bionic Titan (2010)

We haven't done one of these in a while, so I thought I'd showcase a neat little bit from Sym-Bionic Titan last year. I'm not much into the whole "Nostalgia" thing, but this sequence came out of nowhere with no warning whatsoever at the climax of an episode. I was grinning like an idiot for the next couple hours, and when they re-ran the episode on Saturday, I forced the Republispouse to watch it. She, too, was grinning for a couple hours afterwards. Treacle-free nostalgic violence. Nice!
