After a brief hiatus caused by a paralyzing spasm of anxiety and dread (these spasms will complicate the ideal of regular blog updates, I fear), Anxiety Jukebox Friday returns with a classic from Queen. I’d never seen this video before, and recommend a wee nip of sedation before viewing. There’s exploding infrastructure, burning cars, clips from Nosferatu and other creepy old movies, and–appropriately enough in this season of bleak unemployment figures and populist discontent–breadlines, coercive police action, and a conspicuous shot of the Wall Street sign. Also: human skulls.
But it ends well, with Woodstock, flappers, and videos run in reverse!
So there’s that to look forward to.
I need a refill on my Xanax. That’s really all I know for sure.
