Happy Tuesday night, dear Persephone readers! We had a great day here today, and if you haven’t had a chance to catch up on all the nougat-y goodness we prepared for you, you should totally go back and read. I’ll wait.
Finished? Fantastic! Then let’s get this open thread started! Lurkers, it’s Tuesday, and that means we’re looking at you. Come on out and say something, we promise not to bite. To get you all fired up, here’s a bit of classic awesome to get you in the mood.
It’s always time for Bon Jovi. I know most of you aren’t old enough, but back in the day (by which I mean some time between 1988 and 1991) Jon and Richie (the cute one) performed this song all acoustical and pretty-like on the MTV Movie Awards, and it was just lovely. I tried to find a clip, but no love, Persephoneers.
WAIT! This isn’t the exact performance (which I may actually have on VHS somewhere) but it’s close. This was part of a benefit concert from 1996, and it’s an example of GenX taking ourselves way too seriously, but the music in the middle is pretty.
