Is There Something I Should Know?

Why, yes there is. Today is National Duran Duran Appreciation Day.

Why, you might ask, is there a National Duran Duran Appreciation Day? Oh, we don't need to understand, just like that river twisting through a dusty land.

I don't know about you, but I'm taking the day off.

On holidays like today, I think it's important to offer thanks for the things we really appreciate. One of the things I do appreciate about Duran Duran is how much I learned about global geography and different cultures from their early 80s videos.

And then there's this:

So, to summarize:
1) Why don't you use it?
2) Try not to bruise it.
3) Buy time, don't lose it.

And I think we appreciate Duran Duran just that much more after this:

Everything's a little better once Bruce gets ahold of it.

Man oh man, Duran Duran (the band so nice they named it twice) has always been one of my fondest guilty pleasures from the 80's. Especially as it's not so guilty. They were actually pretty good compared to many of their contemporaries.

Give it the acid James Bond test: A)Living Daylights by A-ha...blecch
B)View to a Kill by Duran Duran...heavenly!!
