Here’s some #throwbackthursday shit for you: New Years…1999? I think? Starring me with horribly blonde hair and a THUMB RING. #tbt #nye #90s
Babylon Zoo - Spaceman
Oh, did you enjoy that Carmen Electra video? Of course you did. Now let me regale you with another song from my youthful days of watching The Box: Babylon Zoo’s Spaceman!
This song sucks ass. The band sucks ass. The video sucks ass. And yet, as an almost teenaged girl, I became hypnotized by the lead singer’s fruitery; I would scan the box hourly to see if this video was on so I could stare into his eyes and imagine myself holdin’ hands with him, walking in the desert. Sppppaaaaaaaceeeeemaaaaaan, I always wanted you to come! Oh yes, Spaceman. I did want you to come.
Looking at this now, it’s no wonder my parents thought I was “special”. This dude, Keith Flint from The Prodigy, Prince, and Edward Scissorhands were my Fantasy Men, which obviously led to merciless teasing from my younger brother and dad-“Nicole likes GAY GUYS!!! GAAAAAAAY!”-with only my mother to back me up, since she too thought Edward Scissorhands was hot. Thanks for the backup, Mom. I’ll never forget it.
Keith Flint does not approve of this fuckery.
