The "Brit a Day" series

What does a months-long parade of attractive British men have to do with fiction, you might well ask? These gentlemen have inspired some lovely scenes, part of the life I live in my head. Over time, some of these scenes reach out to one another and begin to form a story. For the present, each one of these pictures provides a writing prompt for me, a way to keep me writing with a sense of passion and narrative, even when the stories are not yet fully formed.

A Brit a Day [#85]

Eddie Argos [center] appeared in a video made by the British band The Indelicates supporting their single "Julia, We Don't Live in The Sixties." The theme of the song and the video is, as you'd expect from the title, a satire on apathy. Hence, the protesters' posters declaring, "It's FINE" and "It's a Bit Chill," in as much as the weather is the only thing this dispassionate generation really has to complain about.

In the foreground is the lovely Julia Indelicate, one of the finest vocalists of our time. I wish she had a solo or a bigger part on this song. You can watch the video here:
