A parody of the first music video to appear on MTV : Buggles with "Video Killed the Radio Star". This is my first endeavor on my own (I miss Herb!) so I went completely low-key - all video shot on the iPhone 4 and edited in iMovie with no frills. Vocals were self produced in GarageBand with a Snowball mic. This project was created as my digital artifact submission to a Massive Open Online Course I'm taking through Coursera- "E-Learning and Digital Cultures" (#edcmooc).
Special thanks to my daughter and husband, who helped with the artwork, sets, and performing.

Lyrics by Amy Burvall

We've had the Internet since 1992
And now I never have a sense of "what to do?"
Because we're all just nodes- connecting- me and you

Oh-a oh

We wonder if all information should be free
And with our education -- how "tech" could it be?
..If our devices might change our biology

Oh-a oh
I'll get my Mac Pro
Oh-a oh
and go to Google

Digital Life has changed who we are
Digital Life has changed who we are

We're binary in our hearts

Oh-a-a-a oh

And now we tweet and blog and hashtag all our thoughts
Our children start to play with personal robots
Nothing is real until we Instagram our shots

Oh-a oh
You gotta post it
Oh-a oh
that makes it Le-git

Digital Life has changed who we are
Digital Life has changed who we are

GPS to drive my car
my phone finds me restaurants and bars

Oh-a- oh
Oh-a-oh

Digital Life has changed who we are
Digital Life has changed who we are

Sometimes I think it's so bizarre
I'm with you but my mind is far

Distraught when I lose Wi-Fi bars
just want to be a YouTube star.....
...a viral video star
