R. is watching music videos again while our offspring plays completely incompatible music on various toys in the living room. One of the videos was Maroon 5's "Wake up Call". I lurve Maroon 5 and have for the better part of a year now. And that video is EVIL! A pastiche of Miami Vice, GTA, Mission Impossible (complete with a teeny tiny reel to reel that blows up a 1970s sedan in an concrete canyon in LA) and I am not cool enough to recognize what all else -- towards the end, there are even a couple of woman police officers in skimpy outfits appropriate only to porno or possibly a late 70s exploitation flick.
Wow. Big grins. Don't tell me it's EVIL. I started there.
We caught up on the Daily Show last night for the previous week and thus saw Pierce Brosnan talk about paddle boarding, which caused us to go do a little looksee 'round since R. had not heard of it, and the only version _I_ knew of did not involve paddles (I mean, other than hands, in an awkward kneel forward position). We watched a little YouTube instructional video, read the Wikipedia article and now R. says there's a substantial article in USA Today.
