    Stephen Merritt's The Magnetic Fields released 50 Song Memoir, which follows the first 50 years that Merritt has been alive. They've just unveiled the music video for "'85 Why Am I Not A Teenager?" about the reality of growing up.

    In retro, old-fashioned animation book drawings, the video tells a story about going from a teenager and entering a miserable life of 9 to 5 workdays. How someone can go from a carefree teenager to the bottom of the food chain - and it can be pretty depressing. "Piss on your dreams / Muzzle your screams / Why I am not a teenager?" Speaking of bottom of the food chain, the working android ends up getting swallowed by a whale and still continue to march around with a briefcase.
