Marc Campbell in 1977 B.F. (before Facebook).
Dangerous Minds has just surpassed 50,000 “likes” on Facebook which got me feeling a little sentimental. I searched our archives to find my first appearance on this site and came up with this entry by R. Metzger from 07/14/2010 about my song and video 88 Lines About 44 Women. I’m sharing it as one would share photos of one’s wedding, past birthdays or first mugshot. I’m probably feeling quite a bit more warm and fuzzy than you are about all of this.
My experience with DM is one of the most enjoyable things I’ve done in my six decades of bobbing on the high seas of pop culture. I knew that watching all those movies and collecting all those records and books would eventually be put to good use.
Our new blogger Marc Campbell writes: I made the 88 Lines About 44 Women video using rare, and mostly forgotten, footage from some obscure Italian Mondo movies. Of the dozens of 88 Lines videos on youtube, mine is the only one made by someone actually associated with The Nails. RCA (idiots) never released the song as a single, so, as a result, no video was madeā¦until now. This video has been banned countless times by YouTube, but the current upload has somehow averted banishment.
Well, this video did not survive on Youtube. But it has found a nice home on Vimeo.
