last-minute notes for tonight's philosophy event at Chelsea Manor

How do you take 250+ 80s music videos and select the top 20? Do you include the obvious classics (that people may be sick of)? Or ones that are 'important', but obscure? What about those that were bleeding-edge at the time, but seem dated now?

What about news and film video clips? Which do not make the cut? Which are important from the news of the time? What are the most iconic films?

(Here is a list of what will *not* be shown, but came very close: any MJ, Prince, Springsteen, Billy Joel, Joe Jackson, Erasure, Van Halen (sort of), Run-D.M.C., Blondie, A-ha..., as well as, sadly, the 'who shot JR' clip we prepared, just not enough time)

There are a lot of first-timers signed up for this event, so be sure to find them and give them a heads-up on how the evening works!

At the last event, there was another group booked as well, which caused noise problems - we raised heck with Chelsea Manor, and they promise we have the whole venue to ourselves from now on :-)

The discussion topics range from privacy, race, and marriage, to geopolitics, fashion, and music. A full evening :-)

Be sure to sign in, as usual - the list has been printed and will be by the door.
