This playlist is a logical continuation of the previous one, consistently exploring the depths of my hard drive's section, storing a sprawling and still random collection of youtube (mostly) music videos produced over the course of my lifetime, and vintage (1970s-1980s) gay adult shorts and full features, including Jack Deveau's 1972 classic, titled Left-Handed produced by the key gay and queer art erotica label, Bijou Classics. Being relatively new to the vintage gay adult film productions, I am excited about discovering Deveau as an artsy filmmaker with a super interesting backstory (which you can find here at Bijou Blog) - if I am to trust it, the next logical stop in his filmography is 1974's Drive. In terms of music, it's the usual mix of the current (Zdechły Osa, with two short clips) and the 80s, represented by the videos that I didn't have access to back then: Kajagoogoo, Liza Minnelli (in her short-term stint as a pop star, produced by Pet Shop Boys, at the peak of their popularity), and Sandra, otherwise known as my back-then ultimate crush.
Playlists are gif-able audiovisual collages that result from my queries into music and film. Sometimes incidental and at other times project-oriented, they all share a similar duration, one that would fit a 90-minute cassette tape or, more specifically, its two 45-minute sides, one that could be played at one sitting or entered and exited at any point, without any loss on the plot.
