I'm Fucking Cool

Remember this post from a few weeks ago, featuring the video for Justice's "DVNO"?

Well, the music blogger over at the Wired mag website just posted about it today:

Music Video Shows Utter Mastery of Title Sequence Technology

Remember this one, about rickrolling, the greatest internet-message-board-prank in ages?

and did I tell you that I convinced the DJ to rickroll everyone at MEX (in PowerPlant Live!) last Thursday night?

Well, the same aformentioned Wired music blogger posted some quotes from an AMAZING interview with the man himself, Mr. Rick Astley. It's fucking priceless.

Rick says:

I am aware of it obviously...

It's weird, really, because I don't perform much anymore... I'm going to do a few gigs later this year with some other people from the '80s... [ML says: WE NEED TO BE THERE]

It's a bit strange anyway, to be honest, to have videos of when you were a young guy out on the internet, do you know what I mean? I'm 42 years old now, so it's a little bit weird anyway... It makes me laugh -- I'm sure it really annoys a lot of other people -- but it's made me laugh occasionally.


The moral of the story is, I feel validated in my hipsteryness.
