So once again, I didn’t have enough time to prepare anything special for today’s post, but I’ve gotten an early start on what I plan to post tomorrow, a list of the top 10 Queen videos. Right now I’m in the process of watching all their videos (that I can find, anyway) so I can eventually narrow down to the top ten I think are the best. For today, though, I’m putting up a video that — while good — will not be put on the list, primarily because an unfortunate personal experience prevents me from viewing this video objectively. That video is “The Miracle”, which is quite a charming and warm-fuzzy-feeling-inducing video in and of itself. That being said, I had the misfortune of not knowing from the get-go that the Queen look-alikes in the vid were all boys no older than early teens. The first time I saw the video, at the very beginning I thought the “Freddie” was an attractive young woman in drag, only to realize my mistake a few seconds later…so…yeah. Not fun. I can’t really watch this video now without thinking about how for a split-second I was attracted to this 13-year-old boy, but that doesn’t mean the rest of you can’t enjoy the video for what it is. So I’m posting it here now for your viewing pleasure, since I’d imagine the video won’t have the same effect on anyone who knows what I didn’t know when I first saw it. Just don’t make me watch it again. I’ll have plenty of awesome videos to show you tomorrow. Just give me time to narrow down the videos and tend to my mental wounds.
Video of…er…Several Weeks: “Waiting on a Friend” by The Rolling Stones November 22, 2009
Hello, loyal readers, if there are any of you left (well, besides you, Mom) — or rather, if there were any to begin with (again, besides you, Mom). I honestly didn’t intend to leave you guys waiting so long for my next post, but there’s this little thing called college that really sucks up all your spare time. I guess I’ll have to save that Halloween videos list I was planning for next year (*sob*). Anyway, the semester’s winding down right now, so hopefully I’ll be able to come on a little more frequently than before. So without any further ado, I’ve decided to include a very appropriate (by appropriate I mean it has the word “waiting” in the title, as I know at least one of you has been waiting for months for a new post…you know who you are…*cough* Mom *cough*) video for this week (or, rather, for the past three months): a video from the Stones’ cheese-tacular ’80s period, exhibiting the band’s relationship as THE ultimate bromance. They’re so close, that they don’t even have the heart to tell each other that men their age really should not be dressed the way they are (except, of course, for Charlie, who will always be the classiest-dressed man in rock).
