Doctor Who - Take On Me (by TheFlixx)
As any child of the 80s will know, music videos used to be something special, to be cherished and admired while watching The Chart Show on a Saturday morning (in the UK) and MTV if you were a bit fancier.
Of all the great 80s music videos, Ah-Ha’s Take On Me surely classes in the top ten most technically brilliant, and so with that in mind, I present this wonderful Dr Who themed homage which just about makes up for all the damage to my childhood that Michael Bay has wrought!
To me, Van Gogh is the finest painter of them all. Certainly the most popular great painter of all time. The most beloved, the command of color, the most magnificent. He transformed the pain of his tormented life into ecstatic beauty. Pain is easy to portray, but to use your passion and pain to portray the ecstasy and joy and magnificence of our world- no one had ever done it before. Perhaps no one ever will again. To my mind, that strange, wild man who roamed the fields of Provence was not only the world’s greatest artist but also one of the greatest men who ever lived.
