Music Video of the Day: Blacklight by The Ting Tings (2018, dir by ????)


All of the darkness in this video goes along nicely with my current mood.

For instance, on Monday, we had company so, when I came home from work, there were already two cars sitting in the driveway.  So, in order to not to block anyone in, I parked in front of the house.  I then went inside and had a wonderful dinner and got caught up with some old friends.  Around 8:15, I got a call from our neighbor across the street, informing me that some guy had just put a piece of paper on my windshield.  I went outside to see what was going on and guess what I found?

A PARKING TICKET!

That’s right.  I parked in front of my own house and I got ticketed.  Officially, I was ticketed for “illegal parking — facing traffic.”  And now, apparently, I’m supposed to go down to our municipal court (which is located “right behind Walgreen’s,” to quote the court’s website) and pay $60 because I parked IN FRONT OF MY OWN HOUSE!

Needless to say, that ruined my entire Monday night and it ruined most of Tuesday as well.  And I’m still pretty mad even as I sit here typing this.  I mean, if you’ve ever wondered why I have issues of authority, it’s because of crap like this!

But this song and this video both helped to cheer me up.  The Ting Tings are a group that I tend to listen to whenever I’m feeling down.  They made me feel better about things and I hope they’ll do the same for you!

Enjoy!
