Did you watch a lot of movies in the '80's and '90's? If the answer is yes, you need to go home, put this video on the largest screen you have, and take this amazing trip down memory lane.

Skinemax, by Smash TV is a gorgeous montage of movies from your past set to set to some head-nodding beats. You'll see flashes of Bill and Ted's, Labyrinth, Demolition Man, and dozens of others you kinda remember, but don't really remember. The flood of nostalgia hit me like a kick to the chest. The memories associated with these scattered flashes of pop-culture were poignent, and yet it's a peaceful, almost meditative journey through it all.

The description in the post sums it up best:

Skinemax is Koyaanisqatsi for a generation raised on late night television and B-movie VHS tapes. It's long form entertainment for short attention spans. An hour long VJ odyssey, it will move your body and warp your mind.

A nostalgic look back at a half remembered childhood growing up in the 80s and early 90s, Skinemax takes a close look at the culture of that era. The images that motivated, delighted, and terrified us on the silver screen, set to propulsive modern music that pines for a simpler time.

You're probably going to want a dark room, a beanbag chair, and a joint. I didn't say that you should smoke a joint, just that you're probably going to want one. Regardless, sit back and enjoy this exquisite ride. [Smash TV via MetaFilter via Laughing Squid]
