A couple memories for November 22

Today, the day before Thanksgiving, finds me in the kitchen. Not my favorite place in the world by a long shot, but I am in there, chopping, mixing, cooking and cleaning. I’m sure some of you are thinking, “Well, that’s lovely. I’m at work. I would rather be at home in my own kitchen!”

Touché.

I am not at work today. So there’s that. A little gratitude here, right?

On this date in 2010, it was announced that Nick Egan would direct the video for “All You Need is Now”.  As I’m typing this, I’m considering just how familiar Nick Egan’s style might be to Duranies at this point. The black and white contrast, the band performing, even the lighting is all relative to Nick Egan’s direction. Personally, out of the videos Nick Egan directed for Duran Duran, my favorite happens to be this one, “All You Need is Now”. I like that there’s a bit of a storyline, and I am partial to the walk through Brompton Cemetery.

 

I would be neglectful if I didn’t also pay tribute to someone the music community lost on this date. Michael Hutchence, the lead singer of INXS, left us in 1997.  It is both difficult to believe twenty years has passed since the pain of that loss is ever-present for so many, and yet it feels like forever. I think it is fair to say that music has not been quite the same.

Since I’m supposed to be cooking, I’m gonna find a couple/few INXS videos to share. Die hard fans may groan, but they’re some of my favorite.

To those who, like me, will be doing the cooking thing on Thanksgiving, I salute you! To the rest of you, be kind to the cook!! 😀

  1. I miss the INXS leading singer badly everyday: he was more than a sex symbol, he was a good musician and a wise artist.
    Rock in peace.
    No Thanksgiving Day here, but we’re getting overwhelmed by messages and notifications on Black Friday offers: it’s the first time Italy adopts the very American Black Friday business. Wow!
