Io, Saturnalia!

For some reason, the first song here (“Swinging London” by the Pretenders) represents the Saturnalia to me. I was at first dismayed that this was the only video of it on YouTube, then strangely pleased. Somehow, this reflects the true spirit of the Saturnalia in the Great Black Swamp. I especially liked the action shots where the guy holding the camera zooms in tight on the vinyl or swirls the lens around with the rotation of the EP (presumably so we can read the label, although I can’t). “Io, Saturnalia!” to those who celebrate, and “Io, Saturday!” to everyone.
