Elsewhere on the webz today, I was reminded of Steve Burns — you know: Steve, from Blues Clues!
First of all, the man deserves a lifetime achievement award for the acting he did on what I consistently found to be a delightful, intelligent, and genuinely funny show (and when you are at a life stage that has you watching a lot of preschool TV, you find yourself deeply grateful for even a glimmer of such qualities. Trust me). But aside from this essential truth, and quite aside from the fact that I always found him quite adorable in said show, Mr. Burns also released a truly delightful popy-rocky-Flaming Lipsy-sorta album soon after leaving television, and I frankly love it.
Here’s a clip! (Note the Lips’ Steven Drozd on drums).
(Please forgive the sketchy quality! It’s the best I could find).
He’s been talking about releasing a follow up for a stupidly long time (the most recent release date was “summer 2009″…). Steve, if you’re reading this? Please dude: Speed it up!
UPDATE: Ack! I forgot to give the name of the album or link to his Myspace page! Blogger fail.
Sorry about that…!
