Total Blow Off Music Video Post
My general rule is to allow myself one music video post a week, usually reserved for those times when things are unusually intense, I'm out of time, and my brain is fried. This morning, I was preoccupied as I drove my girls the ten blocks to daycare. I missed the turn not once but twice. I said, "Daddy's brain doesn't work." Twin A, who is recently five, said, "I'll be your brain." OK baby, be my brain. "Go straight," she says, "and then turn." She was right. It made things a little easier.
So, things being as they are, I've uncharacteristically spent the last hour surfing YouTube. This was the gem. Better than Bill Monroe doing Wayfaring Stranger. Better than live footage of Flipper from 1982. Better than Steve Earle knocking out a jamming civil war tune on mandolin. Better than the Beatles' rooftop concert. It's a bad photo montage running over a rehearsal tape of the Beatles working out I Want You along with Billy Preston. It rocks.
