is a bizarre slice of the 1980s in a browser. Strange old clips of 80s movies combined with 80s synth music and a lovely pastel palette make for a good time.

My Robot Friend
has just released a lovely video
for the acoustic version of 'Waiting' a song he made with Alison Moyet for his new album Soft-Core

: especially the one in which the mirage disappears before your very eyes! (.rm)
