– and the very visceral response they inspired.
Perhaps it’s just me. But I suspect not. Do you ever re-purpose songs to match what you’re doing?
For example, I never seen this…
…without humming The Clash.
And whenever we go here:
I sing (in my head… usually), ‘Maggie, Maggie Choooooooos’ to the tune of Boney M’s classic, Daddy Cool.
And the moment that I spied these molten beauties winking naughtily at me was no exception.
No sooner had they seduced me into procuring them, weaseled their magical way onto my wiggly feets, that the ol’ cranial orchestra struck up a jaunty ditty to mark the occasion.
The song in question, was (for reasons fairly obvious) New Shoes by Paolo Nutini. It goes like this:
And I, indeed, went like this:
– Buying new shoes may not be a clinically approved cure for depression.
– Your friends may not consider your recently purchased footwear an adequate excuse for tardiness.
Additionally, on closer inspection, Paolo’s little tune, while indisputably catchy, seems to be about some crafty moccasins that have some sort of adverse effect on the wearer wherein he develops short term amnesia, coming to only to discover his friends have been enjoying a frenzied, debauched bender in his house during his unconscious episode. Say no to clog-drugs, kids.
Unlike some fashion snobs, I have no compunction about sharing whence come these little masterpieces du pied. The sneakily gorgeous sneakers featured above came from online fever (perhaps related to the fever that knocked out dear Paolo) – a rather nifty new Thai brand (buy local, guyzz).
And on the subject of sharing, if you enjoy the sort of silly scribbling in evidence above, you may be interested to know know i have started a new tumblr dedicated to my ridiculous little visual jokes.
