I was watching VH-1 Classic last night and caught this wonderful piece of visual art that I hadn't seen in 15 or 20 years. "FishHeads" by Barnes & Barnes. The cool thing that I never noticed before was the recurring FEZ theme throughout the whole video!

Ah, how I miss MTV's golden age.

As everyone here probably knows, one half of Barnes & Barnes was Bill Mumy, who as a young man played Will Robinson on TV. As in "Danger, Will Robinson!"

I love VH1 Classic so much. I was home sick yesterday, and I gave it a good two hours of my day. It's easy to get sucked in. Saw the video for Twilight Zone by Golden Earring! Woohoo! Netherlands Rock 4 Ever!

Mumy still shows up as a guest at lots of comic conventions.

Have you heard the rest of the Barnes and Barnes material? It is some seriosly weird s**t.

That doesn't surprise me since he was also in the cast of Babylon 5.

This thread is diving deeply into geekdom.
Mayday! Mayday! Pull up!

I laughed my ass off the first time I saw that video. I think It was on USA's Nite Flight (a truly warped show that aired at midnite saturday in the mid 80's). Also have the song on one of the Dr. Demento compilation albums.

Night flight ruled my teen years.

Everything cool was there: from 1950s atomica to obscure new wave bands to truly warped movies.

Yes, Billy Mumy was one of the members of Barnes & Barnes, but he is also a huge collector of vintage PEZ dispensers, which explains the PEZ references in many of his works.
Somewhere I have a picture of Billy Mumy, Weird Al and an old girlfriend of mine standing in front of his collection, which actually got me started collecting them 18 years ago.
Ok, here is a test. Anybody know the relation between Fish Heads (the video) and Aliens (the movie)?

And going off on another Night Flight tangent... does anybody remember watching the Firesign Theatre movie (co-produced by Elephant Parts' Nichael Nesmith), 'The Case of the Missing Yolk'? My parents and I STILL do little in-jokes from that....
