Pretty in Pink
So, a person turns from the Beastie Boys to the Psychedelic Furs. here is ‘Pretty in Pink’
There are quite a few clips from the movie with Molly Ringwald, which I never saw. Man, talk about our mis-spent youth! That was not the ‘Napolean Dynamite’ of our time, (although ‘Fast times at Ridgemont High’ maybe was.) So there is James Spader, Jon Cryer or whoever these people are. But the music: it occurs to me now that this was the height of the David Bowie-handsome-nicely-dressed-slightly-swishy-pretty-boy new wave musical era.
So, OK, wouldn’t this piggy look pretty in pink, glaze? You can see here a more typical piggy shape. It consists of a simple bottle, on the left, add little trotters, ears and such, voila, pig. After firing a cork goes in the nose, for easy coin access when you need pizza and the wallet is empty.
