The Editrix Version of "Total Eclipse of the Heart"

Who knew? There are people out there with way too much time on their hands. I no longer feel guilty for my feeble attempts at blogging. Those of us who remember, remember that there was an explosion of music videos when the media was born. And a lot of them were "artsy." Like Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart." What works about this is that they matched her voice pretty well. It's known as the "literal version" of the video. And it's a hoot and a half. Gracias to buymeaclue for pointing me to this bit of nonsense.



As a writer of speculative fiction, I found this work especially funny. Because, you know, we're often hindered by metaphors being literal. And I could just hear my editrix poking holes in the original video.
