"bring back the glove"

The thing and the representation of the thing and the (re)presenter.

Gang of Four, Free EP and Return the Gift
Generationals, Trust EP

Video comprised of found footage on YouTube regarding the abandoned six flags in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, set to Generationals' "Victim of Trap" (thanks @Alex_Rawls)

Chrysalis! Loosely defined boundaries! Competing vectors!

Gang of Four, "I Love a Man In Uniform."

Chrysalis maker!

During all this, in the service of a message board reference, I watched the extended MC Hammer "2 Legit 2 Quit" video, a lesson in exposition where James Brown asks Hammer to mysteriously "bring back the glove." From Michael Jackson? And why the plug for Alf at the end? Was that in the original video? Embedding is thankfully disabled by request. I want to say it clashed with Gang of Four in their punk-disco years more than it did.
