The soundtrack to The Runaways, which I'd really liked when I first saw it.
I dare you not to buy this. Come on, I dare you.
"America's Greatest Hits", for my trip.
I've already mentioned down there how Lite Rock and Florida go hand in hand (in the sunset...on the beach) in my mind.
I think I love this song of theirs most.
(By the way, I'd never realized this line until I'd really listened:
"Sorry boy, but I've been hit by purple rain"
I wonder if Prince stole the idea from them. Wouldn't doubt it. Oh, also, speaking of Prince, what did I see there but a girl in raspberry beret. No kidding. Short shorts and a beret? Who wears that?)
Lastly, a black trench coat (London Fog). Like I said, it's like 2000 degrees around here, but it was pristine, in perfect condition ....and only 10 dollars. Now that I'm looking at it, it seems too big, but whatever...it was 10 dollars and in perfect condition. On my way to the register I'm thinking, "Now, really, when will I ever need a trench coat?" and almost put it up.
Then...like clockwork, the New-Orleans-after-noon monsoon came. It came down hard. In a few minutes we were all flooded in, huddled at the exit. The electricity went off for a short time. Eventually, (because I really had to pee) I decided to brave it. I put on my new too long trench coat over my shorts, t-shirt and sandals and ran out into the blinding rain, water up to my calves.
Now I'm home drying off, listening to this ^, ok, so maybe trying to listen.
and hoping the power would please just go out again. god.
