The beautiful vocal stylings of the Good Lovelies at one of Toronto's finest venues, Hugh's Room. Yup, I just repeated the headline... but seriously, the gals are the tops.

I don't think I've ever cringed so much through a youtube video. What the hell were the creators of this talk show thinking?

Ha! I know!! Elf the talk show?!?! Amazing. But what did you think of Leon?

Alexis said...

I mean, great of course. I'm pretty sure Redbone started off the show without the glasses but because he was rolling his eyes so much, the producers were like, 'hey, where are those shades you wear sometimes? Ummm, let's put those on.'

Shawn William Clarke said...

ha! yeah exactly.

Leon is unique... soo cool.

I didn't know Alf had a talk show... wow - the 80s were pretty devoid of taste... so I looked it up on wikipedia, only to discover it was on the air in, wait for it, 2004. Yes, 5 years ago. *sigh* I feel sick.
