Forgotten Classic Video of the Week

Hi gang - I know it's pretty much the end of the week, but I've been a little busy. I'm in Pittsburgh right now and just got back from my Dad's 80th birthday party...which reminds me of a joke.

Q: What did the octagenarian pirate say?
A: Arrrr, I'm 80!

(Give it a second.)

Anyway, I thought I'd post an appropriate vid for the occasion. So, I know this probably doesn't qualify as a "forgotten" video but it's certainly a classic. And, more importantly, my Dad really likes this song. Strange, but true. From 1989's Lies (one of the most bizarre and uneven sophomore albums ever), here is "Patience" by Guns N' Roses.

By the way, my Dad's b-day isn't really until May 5, so you all have a little time to get those bottles of Jameson in the mail.

Now I have to wonder if Axl was lip-synching that whistle.

I don't care what anyone says, he's cute in this video and it makes me a bit sentimental.

Happy 80 to your dad! I've never known someone that old that likes Guns and Roses!
I guess you and your sis got your music appreciation from him.

Cheers to him!!! Booze is in the mail.

Ah, GNR. How I loved you when Axl was "sane" and putting out records in a timely manner.

Happy Birthday to your dad!
Why couldn't the 11 year old get in to see the pirate movie?

Because it was rated ARRRR.

Indeed, happy b-day, pops. Here's hoping you're no longer walking the streets at night just tryin' to get it right.


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.
