Masters of their Domains

There's a nice piece in The Globe today about my friends Emily Schultz and Brian Joseph Davis's apartment gallery (where I gave my "Make Your Own Bad Band" talk-shop) and other examples of in-home art spaces created in Toronto, private spaces turned into hybrid public ones. I like the way that Brian and Emily talk about their year-long experiment - that it's not as much for its own sake as to help provide a model that other people might take up.

As a toast to them, I offer the following celebration of domesticity, a 1960s Scopitone of an answer song to Roger Miller's hit King of the Road, by Jody Miller (no relation so far as I know). I've been in a video-posting mood lately (is it the holidays?) and this is, as my friend Matt said when he pointed it out, the best video ever.

Well, nobody seems to have really commented on it, but that video is truly awesome. On so many levels.

It's not a big production, and not even the whole song, but here's live video of Peggy Lee doing the Leiber-Stoller "I'm a Woman," their answer song to the Bo Diddley-Muddy Waters "I'm a Man."
