Forgotten Classic Video of the Week

This week's vid is going out to fellow awesome blogger, Falwless.

I'm reaching back into George Michael's brief "Amish phase" for "Monkey," from his 1987 solo debut, Faith.

Have faith in your monkey, Fal. He's never steered you wrong before. (Except for when he made you start smoking and encouraged you to play with sharp objects around your eyes. But where I'm from, two strikes means you're still in.)

Happy Birthday, idiot. I was going to get you a lock of Jason Castro's matted hair as a present, but the Idol tour security staff have instructions to shoot to kill if they see me within 100 yards of a venue.

Dude, I hope I get one quarter of the attention Fal's received today on my birthday. Geez!

I hear you Red, I'm starting to get jealous of Fally.

Thankfully I don't age. The only annual event I celebrate is The Running Of The Manatee. For which I celebrate by eating manatee.

love love love GM, best pop vocals ever, other than Freddie, of course.

I swear I was just singing some of this junk because I just saw hom on TV. Weird.

Falwless said...

Hahaha. The monkey didn't make me start smoking, you did, don't you remember? If I recall you said something like, "Have you ever smoked? Do you want to? Too bad, suck on this, bitch," and then you made fun of me for coughing? It was very much like that one episode of Diff'rent Strokes where Arnold starts smoking. Without the dwarf black child, of course.

(Thank you for the video tribute. I am truly, truly honored.)

This was obviously before he started hanging with that "bathroom crowd".

Crud, now I'm going to have to listen to Audioslave's "Show Me How To Live" all the way to work, to get this stupid George Michael song out of my head.

I used to work at a supermarket and one of the managers had the surname "Bianci." So everyone used to call him "Donkey" because it rhymed and when this song came out, we'd sing "why can't you set your Donkey free?"

Needless to say, he didn't get it.

If you were REALLY a friend, you'd brave a shoot-to-kill order. Just saying.

Couldn't you have just given her some of your hair and SAID it was from that guy? Maybe next year.

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.
