I Must be Busy, 'Cos I'm Slacking Off

Well, I have a little bit of time between jobs- no time for a really substantial post (I'll leave that sort of thing for Mr. McGravitas), so I'll post a video by Velocity Girl, a band I alluded to in my last post.

I played the following song constantly while I was mulling over leaving employment with Corporate America (I worked for a company which rhymed with "May I Pee?"). After over five years of employment at the place, it felt like I was breaking up with the office (when I gave notice, I started by telling my manager, "Janet, it's just not working out.") The video is a cutesy-poo spy spoof, no doubt done on a budget, but it nicely captures the fun spirit the band always seemed to embody, and vocalist Sarah Shannon makes for a fetching femme fatale:





Other highlights from the band include Sorry Again and Drug Girls.

I used to work for We Pee. (Actually, G.E. bought the company I worked for.)

I think I'm supposed to get $860 or some such per month in one of those old fashioned pension fund things if I ever make it to retirement.

Hi, BBBB - actually we were just talking about Gowanus and Red Hook and exploring down there. I don't know the nabe, so it might be fun.

I hope you can make the lecture, it would be a pleasure and a privilege to meet you in person!
