Are you living in a dystopian future that was apparently inspired by Blade Runner?
Well, don’t worry. Spice Girls are here!
One thing that I like about the Spice Girls is that you could always sing along to their songs. The other thing I like about them is that, regardless of how simple their music may have been, their music videos were almost always ludicrously overproduced. That’s the case here, where Spice Up Your Life is transformed into an anthem for revolution.
Spice Up Your Life was directed by Marcus Nispel, who has subsequently directed a few features film that I didn’t care much for.

Today, we wish a happy 89th birthday to the one and only William Shatner!
This music video is for the title song from Shatner’s 2013 album, Ponder the Mystery. Nowadays, it’s usually agreed that Shatner was laughing at himself when he famously covered songs like Tambourine Man and Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. But Ponder the Mystery features Shatner in a reflective mood. This song, like every other song on the album, finds Shatner pondering not just the mysteries of life but the reality of death, as well.
After that happy introduction, what else can I do but invite you to…
