Saturday Sounds 8 or It Was So Shiny I Had to Touch It

Back in the eighties, when I was cool, I frequented many dark and mysterious seeming "underground" night clubs. These were the type of clubs that weren't advertised in the local paper or listed in the phone book. Neo punkers, goths (aka death rockers) and rockers could be found hanging around in these places.
One night I was at one of these clubs talking with my friend Jack, looking around at the different interesting patrons and sipping a beer. Suddenly,in my peripheral vision, I noticed something large black and shiny.
I turned to look and was startled to see the longest, most luscious, shiny, perfectly straight jet black hair I had ever seen. I couldn't stop my hand from reaching out and touching it. The owner of said hair turned to me and gave me a questioning glance. I smiled at him and said "Your hair is soooo beautiful and SHINY!"
The man, who I thought was very handsome, yet, not my type, smiled back and simply replied "Thank you."
We both turned away and resumed our previous conversations.
Jack's mouth was hanging open and he whispered to me "Do you know who's hair you just touched?"
"Nope, but it's really shiny, isn't it?"
"Ya, he's the lead singer of The Cult!"
"Oh, well his hair is shiny!" I replied as if that is an excuse to touch a complete strangers hair. I guess I was lucky he was so nice about it.

You don't have to watch the whole vid to get my drift.

Sounds like he's used to having a cult following. (Sorry. Couldn't help myself.)

You touched Ian Astbury's hair? Oh. My. God. I loved the Cult.

You are cool... but it would have been cooler if you knew who he was at the time, just sayin' LOL!

I have a love for the Cult that has no explanation.

I am so uncool, I don't know any of their songs. But that is awesome that you touched his crowning glory! I always get them mixed up with The Cure. Same names, but diff bands?!

His hair IS very shiny.

And unlike Hit 40, I would never wash my hand if it touched Ian Astbury's anything.

Jeve (aka John and Steve) said...

Holy smokes! You're right! his hair is soooo shiny! That irresistible attraction to shiny things - maybe you're part crow? I know I must be, as I'm really drawn to diamonds...

I love Hair Bands. They're just so ridiculous.

Also, can you remove the capcha from your blog? They're impossible to read, time consuming and not SHINY AND LONG AT ALL.
