Thirty-five years ago, I vividly remember turning on MuchMusic, and seeing the music video for something called "Mr. Roboto" by Styx.
It was 1983. The New York Islanders were en route to winning their fourth consecutive Stanley Cup, the “other” Trudeau was Prime Minister and Nintendo had just released the Mario Brothers video game.
I watched with a mixture of fascination, bewilderment and frankly, horror, so where does one begin the autopsy?
In the final analysis, I suppose if you’re going to be bad, you may as well be brutally, mind-numbingly, wickedly bad, not mediocre bad.
Domo arigoto, "Mr. Roboto" indeed!
