Blurred Lines or Word Crimes?

I was all set to write a blog past about love and coffee, but my Deadwood Writers Group got unusually chatty with e-mails and links to cool writing stuff. In the fluster, I almost missed this one that links to, as one of the members commented, “Schoolhouse Rock for the 21st Century.”

I like the song “Blurred Lines” by Robin Thicke. I don’t necessarily support the video images, but the song has a strong, catchy beat. Let’s leave it at that.

Enter “Weird Al” Yankovic’s parody of that song, “Word Crimes.” “Weird Al” has been a favorite of mine since childhood, and knowing the original “Blurred Lines” video, the Yankovic video is a hoot! I laughed so hard I cried–literally!–because it appeals to the writer in me and the blog editor I’ve become. Seriously, incorporating the balloon element at the end is deliciously brilliant.
