this is how a road gets made

They say that the average person has between 150 and 475 thoughts about Duran Duran each day. It is possible that my pendulum swings towards the high end of that estimation. No one can really say for sure. I do know that I have much to say about them. So much, in fact, that I'm afraid it necessitates a blog.

For instance, today I came across some recent photos of Simon Le Bon. He appears to be in the throes of some kind of errand. Simon performs his daily business in a sporty silver Audi, dressed in a casual-chic-yet-sporty sort of outfit and wearing the whitest shoes I have ever seen. His hair looks like maybe he didn't wash it that day, but it only serves to make one imagine that it smells extra good like that. Simon is holding a plastic shopping bag, an element of the picture that does not seem right somehow... the bag is too common, too flimsy... but I will not begin to surmise what is in it. That would just be getting carried away. I do have limits... but this is my blog, and I will set them.

Figure of eight... it was our year... it always was.


  1. Closer to 500 times a day, I'd say. :)

  2. In that plastic bag, Simon has a notepad and pen (for lyrics on-the-go), corn chips, gum, and mineral water ;0)
