So some time in the 80's there was a commercial, I think for KFC, where they were comparing their restaurant to some dystopian all-things to all people fast food hell. Does anyone remember this? Can you help me find it? [more inside]
I just discovered the wonderful Los Prisioneros. Please recommend similar Spanish-language music with 80's vibes for this Yazoo fan.
Back in the early or mid-eighties, my grandparents had a book of offbeat Iowan humor. I'd love to find that book again. [more inside]
While settling a disagreement over whether Total Eclipse of the Heart was a duet, I just saw the music video and it blew my mind. I grew up without cable, and am pretty much ignorant of everything but the "classic" music videos from the 80's; please let me know what I'm missing. [more inside]
Looking for a movie I saw on TV in the 80s that was about a sad clown/mime who left his circus and was wandering around the city - a foreign city, probably Europe. It is NOT Children of Paradise, but maybe some remake inspired by it. I believe it was a foreign film and was probably shown on Nickelodeon - it was a color film. Very atmospheric and followed the clown wandering in the city. Any ideas?
Just heard this song by the Wombats. I reminds me very strongly of another song or type of sound. Can you help me identify where I've heard a song (or sound) like this? It seems very strongly eighties to me, but I can't put my finger on it.

In the 80's, which guitarist played a white guitar daubed with paint splotches and Pollock-like streaks of neon pink and green, among other colors? I recall seeing the guitar (probably in a video), but can't place the guitarist or find any images.
