With a Girl Like You

Hurts So Good, by John Cougar Mellencamp.  This is a 45 record - a departure from my usual LP paintings.
Seeing this song takes me back to my young teen years, back when my Gen X friends and I were the young teen generation that MTV was invented for.  We started high school right as it launched, and we went from a family with 7 local television channels with an 18-hour broadcast day that shut off at midnight to an entertainment explosion 24-hour cable family with 200 channels of never-ending insanity.
What an exciting time.  It changed us all.  The Gen Ys and Millennials that followed us were born into a time of round-the-clock global availability of just about anything and computerized everything at the speed of light.  No need to ever learn about ....w a i t i n g.....  for things.
Because now it's all just right there.

We could walk around all day long

Another vibrant 45, courtesy of John Cougar Mellencamp.
This was done in a flatter, non-glossy style as an experiment.  Inspired by my incredibly talented friend, OneSevenNine, who is my favorite local artist and the coolest chick in all of Seattle, I'll tell you what.

Shoot that poison arrow

Super vibrant greens, blues, and brown on this ABC 45.
Although I was never a huge new wave fan, it takes me right back to the old 1982 MTV days of my youth.  We high school freshman were the generation MTV was invented for.  We watched it launch from the launchpad, followed by the Buggles. And now MTV isn't even MTV anymore and we are the demographic it couldn't care less about.  Things change...
