FBO: 'Trying to Like REM Again: A Music Video Presentation'

HEAR & SEE THIS!
When the Failed Bands of Oklahoma launched 'Trying to Like REM Again: A Tri-Week Journey,' there was never any doubt that one of the best way to present the case was through music video. But the question was whether the music should be original or borrowed -- and if so from what period? After two weeks of consideration, the FBO believes the best way to consider REM is through a two-part time warp: using images taken from the era that REM made its mark (= sentimentality for us) PLUS a borrowed song/melody that would have been sentimental for THOSE performers of that era.

The '2, 3, 4' sadly was not C Dalb. But I think it's worth re-tooling it so that it is. Every song, or at least two of three songs, should have a '2, 3, 4' bit at least once, preferably on top of a percussive track.
