A couple of years ago, I took a copy of I, Lucifer over to the folks.
"Do you know who Tuesday Weld was?" my dad asked.
"She was an actress," I said.
He sighed. "That's very generous of you."
Nonetheless, for three months, The Real Tuesday Weld was my New Favorite Band. Part of this was because of their videos.
As a Hans Richter fan, I was hooked.
This is what started it, really. I loved the beat and the visuals were fascinating.
The same artist returned for a cover of "Brazil", which is lovely.
This was their look and their sound. I dug it.
Shortly after that, they had a new artist. It was a new style, but I still enjoyed it.
Also, I love the music. Liking the videos was just the next step.
So here I am now, figuring out what I want played at my funeral, and figuring out what we're going to play at Dad's. Somehow, it all seems right.
