Alright, peer pressure. It’s MUSIC WEEK!
So, on with the videos. Some of these I need. Some I just like. And here we go:
Wow, the song is great, and I need it on iTunes. It was a pretty big hit back in my day. But the video?? WOW! It’s as bad as bad can be!
Sometimes you just need to use YouTube as a juke box. Take this, for instance. Huge when I was a roller skatin’ fool at the Skate Corrall. Still, no one asked me on ‘ladies choice for couples only’. Sigh.

You can do some need things with video:
I wish the fidelity was better, but that’s a mashup of the infamous song “Pay To Cum” by the Bad Brains with Leonard Nimoy’s “The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins” video. I think the dancing makes more sense with the hardcore! And if you haven’t heard “Pay To Cum” before, now you have. You have come correct!
And I leave you with this:
