Forgotten Classic Video of the Week

I'm making this a Two-fer Tuesday, since I feel a bit guilty about my recent lack of blogging. Sorry, but moving has made me tired and I don't have internet service set up at home yet, so I don't have that many opportunities to write or visit your blogs. But, I shall return full-force soon enough.

For some reason, I thought I'd go with a couple of "artsy" bands from the '80s that could teach these shoegazing kids of today a thing or two about staying appropriately cool and detached without becoming whiny. Enjoy these two gems from the forefathers of Emo. Let's call them...Glemo. (Glam+Emo)

"Head On" by The Jesus and Mary Chain



"Desire" by Gene Loves Jezebel

Thank you! You made my day, as I needed to see some JAMC hair today. Jim may have been doing Bobbie Gillespie, but William always had the better hair, don't you think?

I swear, you trigger more flashbacks in my head, than a Jefferson Airplane reunion in the Haight Ashbury.

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.
