Lisa Marie’s Week In Review: 4/18/22 — 4/24/22


Another week, another struggle.

Well, actually, that’s me being a bit overdramatic.  This was not an easy week, mostly because I was feeling awful for most of it.  I wasn’t really depressed and I wasn’t really sick but I felt like I was on the verge of becoming both.  It was just a totally bleh week for me.  Watching Christiane F., one of the most downbeat films ever made, may have been a mistake under the circumstances.  Fortunately, I watched Solarbabies a few nights later and the sight of everyone rolling around the desert on roller skates really brightened my mood.  And then, on Saturday, I watched Vincent Price, Boris Karloff, Jack Nicholson, and Peter Lorre in The Raven and that cheered me up even more.

As for the world of television, I finally got to watch Only Murders In The Buildings and I loved it.  And I also binged the first episodes of Atlanta’s new season and I’m still haunted by the premiere in particular.

Anyway, I’m feeling better just having typed out those few paragraphs.  In other words, I’ll be okay.

Music Video of the Day: Can’t Help Falling In Love by UB40 (1993, directed by Neil Abramson)


For much of 1993, this song and music video was inescapable on MTV.  Director Neil Abramson also directed videos for Belinda Carlisle, Enigma, Siouxsie and the Banshees, and Dwight Yoakam.  Soiuxsie and the Banshees and Dwight Yoakam?  The music business makes for some interesting connections.

Enjoy!
