  1. Mark Mothersbaugh was probably wondering where his flower pots went.

  2. Tell me you had to look up that name. I can’t believe you remembered it!

  3. I’m a big Devo fan. The MTV Videos were hilarious!

    When you have nephews and nieces you learn to watch kids programming. Mark has done soundtrack work for Pee Wee’s Playhouse and Rugrats. (This I knew!)

    He also wrote a neat song called “Piranhas Are a Very Tricky Species” which is currently on my mp3 player. However looking him up on IMDB, this guy has done a lot more than I knew about.

    Some guys remember sports stats, or movie dialogs. I love music, so obscure music esoterica sticks in my brain.

  4. Devo added a much needed sense of whimsy to the ’80s art-punk scene. Nice rhythm in ‘Piranhas.’ Thanks.

    I needed to look him up. Dan Elfman (remember Oingo-Boingo?) underpins so much of the California-going-east contemporary alternative (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Mars Volta). Where have you heard a Mothersbaugh echo?

  5. Good question! Had to do some internet searches to answer this one. The answer I came up with is Neil Young.

    One more bit of music trivia that might come in handy someday.

  6. Must have been very interesting times.

    NOTE: Article has some pretty ripe language! Last night my two teenage sons and I were watching South Park. The older one turned to me and said “I can’t believe your laughing at this. You never used to let me watch it.” I had to tell him that six years ago he had the echoic capacity to turn his mouth to a trash can and didn’t have the higher order thinking skills to recognize sarcasm and social commentary. Welcome to the big boy world son.
