one of the things m21 and his high school best girlfriend bonded over was our love of this man:
m21's fascination actually started in his pre-teen years when his sister would leave to go to her part-time high school job, and we would sneak into her bedroom to play her "young americans" album over and over ('til she came home and threatened to kick our ass for being in her bedroom, where we were FORBIDDEN to step foot inside). god, we loved he so. still love his music, and hearing it transports us back to a time when we dreamed of growing up to be best friends with andy warhol, to live in an artist's loft in gritty downtown new york, and to spend our evenings doing piles of blow in underground nightclubs. these were our high-reaching goals at 16, we kid you not (guess which two out of the three we did NOT succeed in achieving by the age of 25?) see why this is a slightly messed up stroll down memory lane? our decorating is pretty- our youthful past? maybe not so much...
this song- and it's dramatic new (yes, new) video art form- was pivotal in our high school life. enjoy. or not.
