Random Video Entry: Stella, "Le Vampire"
After June, October is easily the second-grooviest month of the year. John Lennon's birthday, wack-attack Libra/Scorpio vibes in effect, & have y'all tried Ginger Gold apples yet? Oh my God. Like Golden Delicii, only softer, and with a ginger kick! This weekend is Canadian Thanksgiving, which means I get to eat my Dad's sweet potatoes tonight, and I'm STOKED. I am thankful for sweet potatoes, my friends, my family, my great eyebrows, Paul McCartney, Coffee Crisp bars* and Hallowe'en!
Hallowe'en is on its way! Hallowe'en is the best holiday. Compared to Hallowe'en, all the other holidays totally blow and aren't even worth mentioning. This senseless wild night where we embrace wickedness, with CANDY and COSTUMES and it is socially acceptable to throw eggs at your enemies' dumb houses! For once! If I ever have a kid, I'm going to rig my pregnancy so that my first-born daughter is a Hallowe'en Scorpio, just like Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz. I am really into dragging out Hallowe'en festivities for the entire month of October, just like the tarot card reader on Dundas Street, who recently put up a sign in her window reading "Wicked Witch Way," which I think should be the name of a Mary Timony song.
Anyway, let us all celebrate a twenty-days early Hallowe'en this sunny autumn Sunday by watching this sick Scopitone vid for Stella's "Le Vampire", because if there's one thing everyone in the world can agree on, it's that bubbly French girl pop from the sixties is kinda officially "the shit." This song has a killer Hallowe'en bent, features shrieky back-up vocals from a ghost, Stella is wildly adorable, and, over the course of my writing this sentence, I just decided that the dancey vampire dude in all black fake-playing a fake giant guitar is my Dream Dude. Spooky!!!
*I just want to say a few words about Coffee Crisp bars right now. Dear Residents of the United States of America: I pity you. America is a candy bar wasteland. No Caramilks, no Aeros, no COFFEE CRISPS. When I was a little kid, I hated Coffee Crisps, because I was a little kid, and hadn't acquired my now-passionate taste for coffee yet, so I would give all my Hallowe'en-stash Coffee Crisps to my Dad. "Coffee Crisp bars are for grown-ups," I would think. AND NOW I LOVE COFFEE CRISP BARS SOOOOOOOO MUCH! Which means I'm a grown-up. Awesome!
