Happy Friday Videos - 9/21/12

Like an ancient spell (or curse, depending on how you look at it) being lifted, a superhero getting back into the game after a backbreaking absence, or some guy who got too damned lazy to write finally getting off of his ass in order to work out his issues through the printed word...I'm back.  And this time, I intend to stay.  What better way to celebrate than an awesome song full of class, swagger, and just all around good listening.

You've heard it in the Acura ads, and it's here now in its entirety for your listening/celebrating pleasure.  Here's Nick Waterhouse's "Say I Want To Know".

At this point you're saying, "Wait, videos?  Mike, you usually post only one on a Friday."  Well, you'd be right under normal circumstances.  But I just came back from a long absence.  I let a MidTerm Election, a Presidential Election, and several breakups just pass without commentary.  And then out of the blue, I came back today.  So this isn't a normal circumstance, and as such it's time to do something special.  I'm not going to introduce the next two videos with any remarks except that they are fitting to what has transpired.  To the road ahead kids...

Good to be back and good to hear from you again, Caustic Critic. It feels like Flynn opening the arcade again over here. :D
