In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

Good Times

Michael Blowhard writes:

Dear Blowhards --

This Morris Day and The Time piece gets my vote for Most Irresistable Party Video Ever:

Suave! Playboy vanity plus comic r&b equals entertainment bliss.

I got real bored on a Friday night
I couldn't find a damn thing to do.
So I pulled out a suit about the same color
As my BMW.

Nothing wrong with that as poetry! That's a snazzy job of filmmaking too, well worth inspecting more than once. I wonder who the vid's director was.

But I found this video of some company's accounting department lip-synching to The Time's "Jungle Love" almost as funny and endearing:

There is (or at least can be) something so darned cute about the way white people love black people's style and music ...

Here's the official website. Morris Day tells Wave magazine that he had a very good time in the 1980s.
