There’s been a long history (or at least since 1979) of bands using the premise of invading the high school, rockin’ with the kids, and scaring the teachers in music videos.

Above is a one-man cover of one of my favorite KISS songs (“Under The Rose”), albeit a somewhat obscure one to most.

MGP’s 20 Years of Singlehood

November 7, 2014 MGP 0

On (or around) November 7th, 1994, your faithful narrator last exited the world of coupledom. Some might say he was cast out unceremoniously for no fault of his own, and they’d be right, but that’s neither here nor there. What this means is that I’ve been a voluntary bachelor for 20 years now — no committed romantic relationships whatsoever. But let that number sink in a bit. 20 years. I’ll […]

from Wikipedia: His arguments defending romanticism photography led him to be “ostracized from most authoritative canons of photographic history.” In an essay, Larry Lytle wrote “Due to his approach—both technically and philosophically in opposition to straight or purist adherents — he is amongst the most problematic figures in photography in the twentieth-century… historians and critics have described his images as “…anecdotal, highly sentimental, mildly erotic hand-colored prints…”, “…bowdlerized versions of […]
