Misc Monday

Happy Monday, all!!!

My mind seems to be all the over the place these days, so the best I can do is a miscellaneous kind of post. Sorry.

*Deal with it*

First, I ask you to watch this video.
No. I'm BEGGING you to watch this video. Or at least 30 to 45 seconds of it. That might be all you can take.

It's weird. I like Mick Jagger. I like David Bowie.
I was an 80's child, so I even liked this song and...I'm afraid to admit this video as well.

However, looking back on it today, I find it incredibly creepy. And sickening.
And, well, just plain ugh.

I don't remember it being that way. It's just so funny to look back on things with different eyes.

Anyway, enjoy...

Secondly, Amazon has my blogging bud, Julie Jarnagin's book Canyon Walls on sale for 99 cents. So grab while it's cheap! I'm reading it now and really enjoying it. :-)

And lastly, I'm over at Ramblings from this Chick talking about a topic I talked about here  few years ago: On Beginnings and Endings of Books. If you haven't seen it, then stop by and give me your take or what is more important.
Chance to win a copy of Kissing Kendall.

And that's it from me!

Enjoy your week!

Do you remember this video? Did it creep you out too?

Thanks for the info about Julie's book!!
LOL on the video!! I didn't know they sang that song. I don't think the video is creepy just VERY 80s. LOL

Maria Zannini said...

Mich Jagger has always been creepy.

David Bowie looked as if he was just doing a job, 80s style. :)

What the heck did we like about that to begin with? Seriously!

Jessica R. Patch said...

LOL! I'm trying to figure out how I once liked this? OMG! However, it makes me want to watch the Labyrinth now. ha!

CJ Kennedy said...

Too bad nobody taped over the VHS

Linda Kage said...

How funny! I have an 80s video on my blog today too! Great minds.

I'm glad our fashion sense has changed in the past 30 years! Yeesh!

Congrats to Julie!

Laura Marcella said...

LoL, I think it's ridiculous! Oh, the '80s. That decade is perfect for getting a laugh!!

Julie Jarnagin said...

Oh wow! Thank you so much for the shout out about my book. I was just getting ready to watch Mick Jagger & David Bowie, and then I saw my cover. LOL.

Carolyn V said...

lol. That was awesome. Took me back. I used to love David Bowie.

Nancy said...

I'm pretty sure I saw the Rolling Stones when they were first on the Ed Sullivan show. Compared to the Beatles, compared to anything else, I found them appalling. Believe me, nobody went on TV before that looking so messy. It just wasn't done. As for the sound, no thanks.

Old Kitty said...

LOL!! Awwww it's a fun video - two mega super stars not giving two hoots and enjoying it a la 80's stylie! LOL!

Now I can't stop singing it...!! Take care

Stacy McKitrick said...

I remember the video and it was bad then! :)

Liza said...

It's amazing what seemed so cool then now just seems so dated and ill-conceived. Thanks for the info about the books!

Carol Kilgore said...

Remember how cool we all thought we were back then? They probably think they're still cool in the video :)

Great post on the other blog, too.

Shelley Munro said...

I remember enjoying this video. It does seem very 80s now and dated.

Karen Lange said...

Wow, that is a little weird, isn't it? I don't recall ever seeing it before (but I may have).

Have a good week!

I thought it was creepy even back then.
