fat pony like thunder

beware the giant squid!

I tried to resist for months and months, especially as the first time I ever heard it was when it woke me up at four in the morning when we were staying in Myrtleville on our tour (the guy who owned the hotel venue decided to put the album on at top volume while doing the post-gig cleaning), but I love, love, love 'I Believe in a Thing Called Love' by the Darkness. I love the video even more than the song; you know the way some things stop being funny after you've seen them a few times? Well, that video isn't one of those things. It sends me into hysterics - like, thigh-slapping, stamping, writhing fits of laughter. I can't decide which is the funniest bit - it's either the bit where their disembodied heads appear in the sky, or the bit where Justin gives the thumbs up at the end. Or maybe the scary devil-woman. Or when he throws the boulder at the giant crab. Or the hands-aloft clap-along. Oh, too many funny things! I can't decide! I believe in a thing called looooooooove....
