Ok I really love this song. And I really love the video, (which I never saw until just now because I never had cable) it is a great mix of late 80s analog video filters/effects, stop motion animation, and early computer animation. Mix it up La Tour!

Ok so I stopped to take a photo of this "Health Club" sign that is carved out of wood--the antithesis of a place like Crunch or Ballys...when I saw THIS sign next door! The business is called "4 Shizzle" I guess it's a night club by the sound of this blog (with another amazing pic of the place). Amazing.

The other day Brittany and I went to pick up some mannequins from a business called "MS Baubles" now...is that "M.S." or "Ms." as in MS MEANS MYSELF! We don't know! Anyway, after scoring several mannequins, we treated ourselves to a shopping spree at Hot Topic where we got amazing striped hair extensions, then we ate at taco bell where the hot zauce had some pretty existential shit written on it. Example: "Help! I can't tell where I am. It's dark and I can hear laughing". If you do not believe me I can show you this "border sauce" packet in person--it is perplexing...

So all over Chicago there are these store fronts that have huge display areas in the front, which I assume were once used for the original business which had large merchandise or mannequins or whatever but the new businesses don't need that space so they fill it with random, freaky shit. This one did a pretty good job. Try to guess what kind of business this is, the winner gets a prize. (Not from the store, from me)
