Neon Shadow Conspiracy II: “Cyberpunk Is Dead” Movie Parody

RND/ To consider a ‘cyberpunk is dead’ style VHS parody movie, entitled “Neon Shadow Conspiracy”.

Starring Elias Koteas and Angelina Jolie in x-tra elite, super saturated lo-fi ‘deep zoom-shadow’ aesthetic / mode:

In the year 2074 the Pinhead corporation creates an almost-human looking cyborg Casella Reese aka ‘Cash’, designed specifically to charm and seduce her way into a rival manufacturer’s headquarters and then (laughably) self-detonate. Things go awry when she starts to have feelings for a human – Colton Ricks aka ‘Colt 45’, who works for Pinhead as a martial arts instructor (although what a self-detonating sex doll wants to learn kickboxing seems puzzling.) He falls for Cash as well, and with the help of ‘Mercy’ they escape. Pinhead Corp. sends ‘Danny Bench’, a Cyborg Tracker after Colt and Cash. B-Movie violence ensues.

Debbie Gibson 80s VHS Dream Montage

RND/ In which (while asleep) you consider imagining happening upon an old unrewound VHS tape containing the pop video “Only In My Dreams” by Debbie Gibson

Debbie Gibson, 80s VHS Dream Montage

In which you note both that amazing purple-blue color often seen in oldskool 80s videos, and the bizarre ‘Remember: Brain Inside, World Outside’ model being shown Debbie in the video itself; interesting how this model entirely fails to take into account the fact that it already forms part of the whole (/80s video pop montage) dream. Perhaps the Retro 80’s ‘dream’ on display is a vision, projected outward from Debbie’s sleeping pop idol brain as an entire (fragmentary) hyper-mediated reality..

Enlarged BAOH anime screenshots

RND/ to imagine enlarged screenshots of classic violent anime “BAOH” from an old LOLtube video – notable for over the top expressions on the ugly faces of its crudely drawn characters

– In which the word “BAOH” appears to mean ‘bow’, as in ‘respect due for such uniquely oldskool VHS crudeness’
