Rolly Polly Fish Heads

Here's a bit of an amuse bouche to tide us over - for those of us who came of age in the decade of pastiche, Cyndi Lauper, conservative high schoolers and the like, this one brings ya right back.

Ahem...It's Cyndi Lauper.

You know that's Bill Paxton, right?

He directed and starred in the video.

P.S. I'm happy to have discovered this blog. I just moved to Larchmont a few months ago and I'm looking to get my grub on.

Rafi -

Welcome to the hood! Larchmont is my home as well.

I actually did not know that Bill Paxton was the mind behind the fish heads! He was totally unknown to me when the fish heads were in heavy rotation on cable in the early '80's and the peculiar mix of East Village funk and proto-MTV cool took my imagination out to sea and beyond.
