This weekend we Americans celebrate our presidents’ birthdays by doing much as our current president does: relaxing and doing little work. And thus, I have nothing much to say. But I did just want to show you this video I saw tonight on VH1 Classic. Some time ago, in a galaxy far far away known as the early 1980′s, the band Simple Minds or perhaps their brilliant video director thought it would be cool and sexy to set their little film at an airport security checkpoint. Oh yeah, I’m turned on.



In other news, although I haven’t posted anything real, it’s Sunday, so Where in the World is David Nalbandian and iPod song of the Week are updated. Happy happy joy joy.

And what the hey, even though if I do a video, I don’t usually do a song, how many chances do I get to show this one off?

The Psychedelic Furs – President Gas

I love Chrissie, I love the Furs, but Simple Minds…not so much. I mean that whole Breakfast Club thing was somewhat cool initially, but I always thought Chrissie was too good for him.

Didn’t he end up leaving her for Patsy Kensit who then ended up leaving him for the more insane Gallagher brother from Oasis?

And why do I know this?

I just loved the way he used to do our radio station promo in his Scottish accent. “This is Jim Kerrrrrr of Simple Meinddddds…”
