The Bedroom Philosopher – Northcote [YouTube Comments] : Film Clip Of The Week
Most of us arefamiliar with the The Bedroom Philosopher and his Songs From the 86 Tram record, where songs like Northcote (So Hungover) celebrate the complexities of the ‘hip’ among us. However, as this YouTube comment version suggests, it’s best not to think too much about it – the basic idea is that there is no all-encompassing idea. Justin Heazlewood is merely pointing to an abusrd and quirky aspect of our behaviour and telling us we need to have a laugh.
And with comments from curious observers like “Yeah man, like it’s called self-juxtaposition. You know, he’s like deconstructing his own identity” and the slightly less academic, but no less interesting, “You c*nts are past gay”, it’s hard not to have a bit of a giggle.
