Milkquarious

The fact that Nevada and Utah are neighbours shows that the universe has a sense of humour.  I'm in chaste Utah, while a block away is the gaudy, second-tier glitz of a borderline casino zone.  Speaking of humour, before I left Berkeley, I saw commercials for The Battle for Milkquarious, a rock opera about milk {see press release}.  I don't think this is being advertised outside of California, as it's sponsored by the California Milk Processor Board.  Goodby, Silverstein, & Partners are behind it, the same agency that did the "Got Milk" campaign.  The scary thing is I actually have dreams like this...{click to go to site in new window}






This takes me back to watching bad scifi like Space: 1999 and Logan's Run.  Well, not to mention good dystopian stuff like Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange.  Ah, the Korova Milk Bar::








I'm going to be in Westchester County next week, so I might have to go here in White Plains, NY.  Milkdonkulous!

OK, so back to Milkquarious, I found it campy and hilarious, with characters like White Gold, Jug Life, and the unipegacow, Bovina::





Oh, if Strawberry Summers {top right} looks familiar, she was in the IBM "Go Green" ads I blogged about last year::





Twitterversion::  Rock opera The Battle for Milkquarious rocks the Interwebs thanks to the Calif. Milk Processor Board & #GoodbySilverstein. @Prof_K

Song:: In the Aeroplane Over the Sea - Neutral Milk Hotel
