Forgotten Classic Video of the Week

After this song recently appeared on my April Showers mix (thanks to Dr. Ken's request), I decided to post the video for "The Rain" by Oran "Juice" Jones this week. Why? Because it's awesome, that's why!

Also, I figured it was appropriate since the song references walking, and I'll be doing the 5K Walk in the Komen Race for the Cure tomorrow! Thanks again to everyone who donated. If you haven't yet and want to, there's still time! Just click the image in the near sidebar to go to my donation page.

Hopefully, my teammates and I won't be walking in the rain. The forecast calls for showers tonight and a clear sky tomorrow, but if I had a dime for every time the weather forecast was wrong, I'd have enough money to make my own weather controlling machine.

I loved this song in the 80's.. the best music was written then. If ever the roller rink re-opens I'll come with my Jacko roller skates (from the 70's) for sure and dance to this song with you. Love your attitude to life, love your blog... glad I found you.

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

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.
