    I still think it's "fix" not "flex"

    How did this come about? Was DLR informed of the lyrical debate here on VH Links or were his lyrics offered without solicitation?

    I confess, I am a very sad and pathetic individual but I have done a little bit of research into DLR's style of handwriting...

    Apparently, a person who writes almost entirely in capital letters is desperately trying to hide their true, inner selves and insecurities from the public eye. They therefore often create a facade of false bravado.

    Overly flourished capitals [flourished letters have large and extra curls], as we see in this example by Mr Roth, are a sign of vanity, the need to garner the attentions of others by wearing bizarre gold lame matador outfits, waving jazz hands about and riding on large inflatable microphones. (OK, I added those last bits in myself)

    Sounds about right though, I'd say.

    Good stuff!

    That's the bar room vaudville swagger I hope has been reinstated back into the unit which is the band. Take it on the road and burn down towns along the way.

    I write in all caps. But it's not cause I'm trying to hide something. I do it solely because my dad wrote that way. And I think he did it that way for clarity while working at McDonnell Douglas for 35 years, back when every inter-office message was either typed out or handwritten.

    Yikes! You want to be careful, 47 - that sounds highly dangerous. I'd suggest that you ensure you have somebody with you on the occasions you feel the need to re-watch the video.

    Out of curiousity, 47, and as somebody who seems to have access to the most bizarre pictures / TV footage etc, are you familiar with the eighties British comedian, Kenny Everett? He had a sketch where he would wear THE most enormous white gloved hands and wave them about in a manner similar to that being portrayed here - I have a horrible feeling that without his inflatable microphone, Dave might invest in a pair of those hands for the tour...........So, just watch yourself, OK?

    Yeah, the sites I visited did also say that various professions entailed the perpetual use of capital letters - but that didn't seem to fit with our Dave - so I didn't include it...Sorry about that!

    Funny thing with Daves "jazz hands". In one section of the video, the camera pans away as dave is doing his jazz hands in the airnext to Ed and to me it is VERY reminiscent of what he does in teh Jump video during (Ithink) the key solo. Its so close I actually wonder if it might be intentional. point being in 1984, it didnt look like Jazz Hands, now as a nearly 60yo, it looks like Jazz Hands
