Jill Tracy / David J video

Everybody's favorite chanteuse, Jill Tracy, just let me know that she'll be wearing a House of Nines Design custom hat in her upcoming video with musician David J, of the legendary bands Bauhaus, Tones On Tail, and Love and Rockets. I'm all aflutter.

I love playing the '6 Degrees of Separation' game. Turns out Juliet Landau will be in the video as well (she played Drusilla on Buffy the Vampire Slayer). So, that means I'm only a couple/few degrees from all of these musicians whose music I love, the whole Joss Whedon clan, plus Gerry Anderson's 1960s sci-fi empire: Juliet's parents were in Space 1999. Oh! And they were also on the original Mission Impossible TV show.

An aside: did anybody else notice a similarity between the recent Leonardo DiCaprio movie Inception and Mission Impossible? Joseph Gordon-Levitt made the greatest Barney (the 'electronics expert' who was on every episode, and was the secret genius behind every mission): he was tough, no-nonsense, unflappable, and just took care of business, even when flying around weightless. Fantastic.

I'll send an update once the video is out!
