Random Factoid

Did you know that the guitarist of Queen hand carved a guitar from a fireplace mantel piece with his dad? He was 16 and learned how to play it using a coin. So, I am cool because I know that. It might be a trivia question in Trivial Pursuit one day and I will know the answer. Anybody could learn this totally useless but good for street cred bit of info if they Listened to Lyrics Under Cover. Oh, and Bohemian Rhapsody had the first music video EVAH!

Another little know thing: I adore Queen.

    I have never seen that video, but are you sure it was the first EVER, because the Beatles did music videos for their songs in the 60s that got broadcast on BBC and stuff. Was it maybe the first MTV video ever?

    I dream of the day when I get drunk and karoake that song, btw. I could rock it.

    Um, he said. I’m just repeating. But, if you ever watched the Wayne’s World video for Bohemian R., it was spliced with some of the original video. Wonder if that can be found on YouTube? New project!

    Hmm…sounds like my research project of the day. Find Bohemian Rhapsody on YouTube!

    Damn, that was the easiest project ever. Bah. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=irp8CNj9qBI

    Seriously though, how could no one realize that Freddy Mercury was gay? He has on more makeup than me in this video.
