No I haven't died, just stopping by to share this:

My favorite part: Tracyanne flicking us off. BRILL.
EDIT: Wait, I paused the video and ok that isn't Tracyanne, just wearing the same mustache. Still funny though not as cool.

Ha! I only just now realized that at this hypothetical costume party, Tracyanne and Carey have gone as Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel. Which ties in loosely with the song thanks to the '50 ways to leave your lover' reference. That's about all I can figure out in this bizarre fever dream of a video, however. Why Gavin has gone as Tom Baker/Doctor Who is beyond me...

re: pete, i'll send you an email this week.

Mmmm

there appears to be refs to Lemmy from Motorhead, and Rumours era Mick Fleetwood as well a Ziggy, so maybe its just a setting of a fancy dress party, the song always conjours up (for me anyway) the idea of leaving a lover due to them being either a bad drunk or selfish drug user, and the heartache attached to having to leave this person for the greater good even although they are so sweet when "lucid" ??

just a thought

Pete

That's from Other Towns And Cities

And I had no idea Gav was an obsessive Who fan. There's so little information about him around and I didn't really get into the loop until this year...

I thought Tracyanne was dressed as Lee Hazlewood in the video. Lot's of well known faced in there from Glasgow, the girls that sells the t-shirts at the shows is there as is Lee's girlfriend
