Behold, from the treasure caverns of the internet, we give you Skinemax, a 70 minute VJ odyssey exploring images from our collective entertainment conscious of the '80s and '90s. It's like Battle Seizure Robots with pop culture as the main character, a trippy look at the films you lazily watched on TV as a kid set to hyped-up music and cut with severe ADD. In short, it's definitely going to wake you up. The video has a pretty energetic and rambunctious soundscape as well, utilizing tracks from a bunch of bands, including Com Truise, to name the only band I've ever heard of. More thoughts: A nostalgic look back at a half remembered childhood growing up in the 80s and early 90s, Skinemax takes a close look at the culture of that era. The images that motivated, delighted, and terrified us on the silver screen, set to propulsive modern music that pines for a simpler time. As a child of this specific era, I can safely say that this video mines some seriously buried imagery, including one of my earliest remembered portmanteaus, "skinemax," referring to the softcore skin flicks they show after hours on Cinemax (for the uninitiated). If you were born in the '80s, prepare to relive your childhood, Clockwork Orange style.
