jess and i are sitting here, dinking on our computers, and i feel bad for sticking it on vh1 classic, as they're playing ALL sorts of really cheesy not important stuff, though they keep talking to the spin doctors, and i remember liking them a bit when i was a youngin.

we both shit purple twinkies when... on the t.v.... are you ready for this?


i wet myself. i immediately raced to the television and plopped down, cross-legged, and avidly watched it, as although Jellyfish is one of my favoritest most influential bands of ALL TIME (to me), i had never seen them in motion, other than part of the "Baby's Coming Back" video, when it was originally played on mtv, when i was 18 or so. and that was only once.

this was "King is Half Undressed". Jason Falkner looked 12 years old. I didn't realize that the boys were quite... well... i'd kiss 'em. I felt a smidge below bowing before the moving figure of Andy Sturmer singing on MY television.

okay, this is a bit borderline fanatic, i KNOW. i was angry that i hadn't moved the vcr back downstairs, when i rarely watch anything on it in my room anymore. but my bedroom is the ONLY room without cable, so i like HAVING that option.

for those of you that have never heard Jellyfish.... here's the song they just played the video for! I used to sing along to them in my car at the top of my lungs, as Andy's voice is PERFECT for my vocal range and inflection. i used to especially play/sing along to them to and from band practice back in the days of The Vacant Stairs, and we covered both "Baby's Coming Back" and "Glutton of Sympathy", the second of which i played at all of my solo acoustic gigs, back in 'the day'.

gaw, i love them.

and now? they're playing a video with max headroom. remember him? good times.

If the cable comapny yoinks VH1 Classic, I might just kill. They already took away the good hits channel (VH1 Mega Hits, as it actually played videos for songs from back in ye olden days that were hyoooge, but I'd never seen their videos). Of course, I'm gonna have to get used to maybe basic cable at best once I move out... :P

i also remember the golden days where they swore and promised up and down that mtv2 would never have shows, just videos.

Man, I hope the area around your TV is covered in plastic, otherwise you have some serious post-VH1 cleanup in store. :)

Doesn't that kind of thing just make your day?

What kills me is that I saw Jellyfish in '90 (maybe '91?) when they were freakin' opening for hippy-dippy-Southern-rockers Black Crowes. I was BLOWN AWAY by Jellyfish and bored to tears when Crowes came on (friends I was with were dying to see them). I totally thought the bill should've been reversed. :) Good times, good memories...
