Back when I was a teenager I spent a good deal of my TV time watching music videos. Of course already by that time MTV was more of a regular television station only showing videos at odd hours of the night or early morning. I watched VH-1 or Canada's Much Music (when I was house/dog sitting for lesbians who had satellite.)
Nowadays I rarely see music videos. I'm not even hip to new artists unless they're mentioned in the blogs I read or a friend tells me about them. So as I was insomnia-surfing last night I came across Logo's "The Click List" which apparently plays music videos by LGBT artists and LGBT icons like Madonna or Justin Timberlake (actually I think he's probably more of a "we-wish-he-were-gay-so-we'll-play-his-videos" type of performer.) I figured I'd give the program a try, because at best I'd enjoy it and at worse it'd put me to sleep.
Boy, was I wrong. The music videos they showed by gay and lesbian musicians were so terrible, not only did they keep me wide awake, they also made me laugh uncontrollably and not really in the good way.
Brent told me while filling out some paperwork for a job, and being very prepared and professional, the HR director told him how effortless he had made the process. She added, "The young ones make it difficult." Brent took umbrage seeing as he's only 30.
I affirmed, "You're still young. We're still young." And then I started singing, with arms outstretched to my sides and chest shaking back and forth, "We are young, heartache to heartache we stand. No promises, no demands. Love is a battlefield."
