Forgotten Classic Video of the Week

Giving y'all the video of the week, Thanksgivin' style!

Another thing I'm thankful for this year is YouTube. It's helped me rediscover videos that have slipped through the cracks in my mind, satisfied my craving for the ones I can't get enough of, and introduced me to some that I didn't even know existed. Case in point - the following offering from John Hiatt. This is the video for his very seasonally-appropriate song, and one of my personal favorites, "Thank You Girl," from 1987's brilliantly groovy Bring the Family. Hiatt is one of those great artists I mentioned in my last post, who has blessed the world with an incredible catalog of work. If you're not acquainted with his music, do yourself a favor and check him out. If you want a good starter record, I'd suggest Slow Turning if you're a little bit country, and Perfectly Good Guitar if you're just a little bit more rock 'n roll.

There is an incredible article in GQ on YouTube this month. It's amazing how quicky it happened and took off.

YouTube is owned by Google now. They recognize what will be the next big boom on the net. The video you chose scares me because I remember it.

 

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
