Forgotten Classic Video of the Week

As visual accompaniment to one song from my Green Monkey Mix, please enjoy Roy Orbison's performance of "The Comedians." This clip comes from Roy Orbison and Friends: A Black and White Night, a program that everyone who even has the slightest interest in music should have seen by now. C'est magnifique.

awww I LOVE Roy Orbison!!

When I was little, one time I asked my dad who sang the song, Pretty Woman and was surprised to hear him say he did.

"No you didn't, DAAAD!"

Then, sure enough... the radio announcer says, "And that was Roy Orbison!" (my dad's first name is Roy and our last name sounds a lot like Orbison, especially if said quickly)

I was in shock. I really thought MY DAD sang that song... LOL!

What a great song. It sounds like something written in the early 60s, I'm surprised to hear Elvis Costello wrote it.

BTW, Pam is your best Photoshop job yet. Flawless.

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.
