This one's for TFMR

Yesterday someone asked what in the heck took me out to California in the first place.  I then explained that TFMR (The Former Mr. Ryan) is a musician.  He's one of the rare ones who went West to pursue music and actually made it work, so there we stayed.   We came from Northeast Ohio, where clubs featured live bands instead of canned music...and if you were in a popular band (which he was), you could actually make a living as a musician.  As you can imagine - that whole "pay to play" club scene in LA was a bit of a rude awakening for us.  He's ridiculously talented.  A genuinely funny human being, a gifted songwriter, a smokin' hot drummer, Beatle historian par excellence.  Anyway...

When I saw this video I was immediately transported to one of the many bars/clubs in which I spent a Friday or Saturday night with the other band wives.  Hair teased up on only one side of my head - it was the Sheila E. / Prince / Flock of Seagulls / Cure era after all...jacket with giant shoulder, LOTS of eyeliner and a serious attempt at making my eyeshadow appear to have been airbrushed.  This is one of my all time favorite songs that one of his cover bands played, and happily, it's been  tweaked by one of my favorite performance artists, Liam Sullivan - aka Kelly. (My be NSFW due to language - depending upon where you are)

TFMR, this one's for you.  Dance around the studio as you know you want to!
