A Music Video For A Crazy Fan Girl


This one's for you, Bobbi Baby!

Bobbi Ruggiero, who is a very nice person and an excellent writer, was recently strong-armed by certain unscrupulous folks (me and Ruthie Knox) into reading Sweet Dreams by Kristen Ashley. Now I am feeling sort of guilty because she's being tortured by writing errors, clothing descriptions, and visualizing Joe Manganiello as Tate.

To make her feel better, since she'll probably be reading that sucker until 2015 (it's seriously the longest book in the world), I am posting a Duran Duran video. Bobbi is one of those slightly unbalanced super enthusiastic fans who follows bands all over the country and sneaks into their dressing rooms gets photos to post on Facebook. Really! So, here's one of my favorite Duran Duran songs.....

How awesome is this video of A View To A Kill (1985)? The hair! The eyeliner! The blazers with the sleeves pushed up. The "high-tech" gadgets...hee hee! I love this little ditty.

Enjoy, Ms. Bobbi! Hope you are still hanging in there with The Book.

ETA: Don't forget to stop by for The Martini Club tomorrow. Heidenkind will be here with some crazy stories about Winston Churchill and his wee little drinking habit.

All my best,
Penelope

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who likes A View to a Kill! I'm a total James Bond fangirl! I have a CD of all the themes songs.

Penelope said...

Hi Marie! Aren't you glad guys don't dress like that anymore? :^)

Penelope said...

Hi Casey.....that sounds like a really fun CD. I have to get it! I'm posting my review for Casino Royale (the book, not the movie) on Monday.

Nnnnnnnnnnnooooooooooooooo Not Duran Duran reminds me when I had hair and eye liner, may go back to the eye liner, but the hair is a problem......

Penelope said...

Tom, you don't need no stinkin' hair! Bald is beautiful, man! :^)

I am just seeing this now! HILARIOUS! No one has ever blogged for me/about me before. I feel all warm and syrupy now.

And, YES, I am still reading THAT BOOK!!! I'm pushing the date to 2016. That sucker is long!
