Fairy Dust and Hot Guys.

No, this isn't a night at Graham Norton's house.

Here is a mini-documentary from Barnes & Noble profiling cheesy romance novel cover artist Judy York. Come, get swept away by the magic of her work. She's obviously swept away by... something:

Jukebox Friday: A Long Time Ago in a Country Far, Far Away.

In the past on Jukebox Friday, we've treated you to old vintage clips. Other times, we've treated you to sounds from around the world. This week, we've combined the old and the international, and passed the savings on to you!

From Mexico, Los Hooligans kick up their heels with "Despeinada":

From the Soviet Union(!) it's a group called Песняры (Pesnyary) performing the song "Косил Ясь" (sorry, I don't know the English translation) for state television:

The Japanese girl group Triangle does "Triangle Love Letter":

From Hong Kong, Fong Po Po sings a paean to "Active Youth":

And to finish off with something completely different, it's the German group Kraan (and their pet mimes) doing "Vollgas Ahoi":

The State of the State.

Do you remember "The State"? Damn that was a great show. For you youngsters not in the know, "The State" was an early-'90s sketch show on MTV that absolutely rocked. You probably recognize a lot of the show's alums from more recent stuff like "Reno 911" or VH1's "I Love the...." shows, but this is where the magic happened. Let's take a trip down memory lane...

Barry and Levon have a loveseat:

Just another day in Jersey:

Beards... In... Space!!!

"Thomas Edison was a great man, but he was a bastard to his wife and kids!"

The joys of pants:

Barry and Levon are back with $240 worth of pudding:

Bollywood Monday: Jayshree T.

You know what's worse than a Monday morning? Your first Monday morning after three weeks of vacation. Time to get back to the grind, people. But to make it a little easier, here's some old school elegance (and booty shaking!) courtesy of '60s/'70s Bollywood dance icon Jayshree T.

From "Joroo Ka Ghulam" (1972):
