-Music Videos on my Mind- Butch Walker and the Black Widows’ “Synthesizers”

Remember when Matthew McConaughey's character in Dazed and Confused said the line: "That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age"?

If anyone has stayed the same age it's McConaughey. The guy looks like he's only aged 20 minutes since starring as the avuncular stoner David Wooderson back in 1993. This week marked Wooderson's second coming as McConaughey reprises the iconic character for Butch Walker and the Black Widows' much hyped Synthesizers music video. McConaughey also agreed to direct the clip, which is pretty good value for money in the face of dwindling record sales and compromised profit returns.

McConaughey playing Wooderson again is all well and good, but what I'd love to see is Rosie Perez reprising the role of Tina in Do the Right Thing: preferably before Beyoncé rips it off for her next music video.


  1. The other night I saw a full-length movie about Abba, made during the height of their success. It was a strange feeling watching it while researching them on my cell phone at the same time. I had no idea that the divorce of Bjorn and Agnetha had so badly affected her and the band.

  2. Sorry, that comment was inspired by what you wrote, but otherwise seems totally unrelated. I didn't mean it that way.
