Discuss Anything / Music Video Reviews And The SN8X TV Tropes Page
« on: November 21, 2016, 12:50:11 PM »
I've thought of an idea. As someone who only listens to 80's music 85% of the time, I know quite a few bizarre videos you could write about. Maybe I could send them to you to do so.
Also, unrelated, I actually did try to add some tropes on the TV Tropes page, but I could not figure out for the life of me to link added tropes to their home pages, which I think you're supposed to do. I'll try figuring it out somehow though 

[EDIT: Hey, I decided to split this post into its own topic. -A.D.]

Discuss Anything / Article: Why are we so obsessed with the 1980s?

A really interesting Entertainment Geekly article (only article of its kind, unfortunately) from January 2014, that I think can strongly, strongly be applied to one's understanding of Satan Ninja 198X.

Some interesting points are how it says the 80s as a decade are a genre unto itself, with conventians that this comic uses such as synth music(not in it, but you have linked ideal synth songs to play along while reading), neon lights, a mixture of raw brutality and endearing innocence, karate, cocaine and aesthetically unpleasing computers. You can pretty much find all these things in this comic, aided strongly by the website aesthetic as well.

Another interesting point from the article is how it says that you can imagine characters from 80s set period prices actually in there world going to see actual 80s movies, which is imaginable because  of the way these pieces are made, in a way that they share the same world as these movies. So with this comic, I can actually imagine characters going to see such movies, or listening to synth music, because of the way the comic is done.

It also states that the 80s are now an "actual cultural and artistic force", which I think is strongly relevant now, with examples such as this comic, Stranger Things and synthwave music. These aren't simple parodies just existing to poke fun at the time, they actually relish and create an actual feel of the time, which, as was stated before, is a mixture of "a mixture of raw brutality and endearing innocence", which can come from the fact that things like teen movies can be seen as innocent but action and horror movies relentlessly raw and bloody.   

Plus, it also brings up the then kickstarter Kung Fury, which, while pretty different from this comic, the intentions of which are stated for making the film do seem to kind of resemble your reasons for making this comic as well.

But anyway, it's an interesting read. Bet you never thought this comic would get an artistic analysis, did you? Well, now it has.

Discuss Anything / Ninja's in 80's Music Video

The song the video's for in question is the brilliant "Voyeur" from Kim Carnes (think "Bette Davis Eyes"). Directed by an Australian Dude (who also did the likes of "I'm Still Standing", "True" and "Total Eclipse Of The Heart"). Uploaded by an Australian YouTube channel from an Australian music TV show. Ninja's appear out of nowhere briefly but don't exactly do much besides swing nun chucks. Maybe they're looking for the Satanic Glove?
Also, you should totally do 80's Music Video Reviews again. Unfortunately, yours truly was not here yet when you last did them.
