YouTube/ "The Origin of Love (Reprise)"/ Wig in a Box

lots to watch at YouTube:

"New England"

"I Was Dancing in the Lesbian Bar"

Sproul Plaza, Berkeley, Summer 1981

Makeout Room 2005

these have Modern Lovers music but no Jonathan:

"Egyptian Reggae" (old BBC television footage)

One Big Flipbook (oddly fascinating, set to "Egyptian Reggae")

"She Cracked" (interesting animation)

As posted previously on Jojoblog, you can watch "I'm So Confused" and "I Was Dancing in the Lesbian Bar" here

The same two videos are offered at Vapor

and "Lesbian Bar" also appears at Yahoo! Music

where you can sample some songs, including "The Origin of Love (Reprise)" from Wig in a Box: Songs From and Inspired by Hedwig & the Angry Inch
