Wednesday Afternoon Videos

Kinda like Friday Night Videos, but more Scooby Doo Mansionesque.

Video #1 is "Most Beautiful Girl in the Room" from Flight of the Conchords. Turn up the volume, you're gonna want to hear the lyrics. I hope Prince covers this song someday.



Video #2 is just for you, Admiral Nelson. Enjoy, you crazy bastard.



And yeah, I effing loved this song in 1986. Being the smarty-pirate that I am now, I could probably come up with a pretty convincing argument that Sigue Sigue Sputnik's nihilistic post-apocalyptic aesthetic somehow sublimated my pubescent Reagan-era anxieties about nuclear (sorry, I mean "nuk-u-lar") war. But that would be bullshit. The truth is that it was 1986, and in my mind the choice was either Sigue Sigue Sputnik or Huey Lewis and the News. I stand by my decision

I wonder what the 4th most beautiful girl on the street looks like.

Pirate, your a damn genius...again! Your anaylsis of Sigue is right on and I totally support your decision to embrace Sigue at that time in your life...it was the right decision. Both the Blacktop Disciple agree! Slam ON!
