In the middle of the night ...
Updated with video -- see below
Yours Truly, Regulus at the Lincoln Memorial at the 4AM hour here in Washington, D.C., June 22, 2008.
I apologize to my readers for my previous entry, since I know it did not make a lot of sense. Long story short, I was upset about a few things.
Anyway, I plan to have a new entry up later today with stuff about my 3AM -430AM walk with Kristof and LP after the bars closed [we were at Omega, where Kristof and I had gone after Cobalt] from the Dupont area here in D.C. to the Lincoln Memorial and part-way back before taking a cab the rest of the way, as we were pretty tired at that point. I live about 2 miles from the Lincoln Memorial. I used to go down there a lot in the wee hours like that ... not just before my 2004 annus horribilis, but before 9/11 attacks that turned the area in to a frickin' police state war-zone.
Just because it was stuck in my head this afternoon ...John Paul Young's song "Love is in the Air".
I first saw the video at JRs (yes, that JRs) some years ago, (long before he was there). The part of the video near the ending involving the love arrows being shot into the couple before they ascend to heaven is actually slightly jarring. As for Young himself, he looks like he's sort of frozen through the whole song. The very ending where you hear The Muppet Show characters Statler and Waldorf is actually kind of funny.
The original 1978 version sung by a much younger Young is here.
