People.  People.  You are watching these videos I put up, right?  Do you think I do it to amuse myself?  (Well, sure, but...) No!  I do it for YOUR EDIFICATION.  If you haven't watched the Santogold video below, I urge you to do so now.  Why?  Because it's something I think you'll like, if you have anything approaching good taste in music, videos, and/or music videos.  Note especially the contrast between the serious-sounding music and the somewhat-less-than-serious-but-at-the-same-time-very-serious images of people screaming while getting splashed with paint and pretending to be disemboweled.

Like the best poetry, it makes you—but I hate "makes"; let's say "allows you to"—feel something-but-what-but-what!  You're never quite sure where you are, so you keep alert, on your toes, eyes peeled (an old and common phrase that nevertheless will always sound cool).

  1. EVERYONE IN THE WORLD -- NAY, THE UNIVERSE! -- SHOULD BE FORCED TO WATCH THAT SANTOGOLD VIDEO AT LEAST SEVENTEEN TIMES. This, and only this, can save us.
