I just watched the video for Ben Folds’ song Still Fighting It — probably my favorite off his “Rockin’ The Suburbs” record. You, too, can be ripped from your present earthly state and thrust into a world of nostalgia and emotion by simply pressing PLAY above.
I’m not sure why I feel the need to post something about this; it certainly isn’t that profound or noteworthy. I guess this video just reminded me of how much I absolutely love good art.
I should probably say that I consider art to be good when it contains flowers of truth and beauty; something has been nurtured to the point where it has grown obvious, true, beauty.
I love good music videos and perfect TV/film song placements in particular, because they encompass most everything I love about art — they make you feel, remember, love, whatever. Know what I mean? (If you don’t, you should probably go watch the video and come back to finish reading.)
All I know is that if I have kids someday, I want a video of them playing in the ocean, and me playing with them. I’m not sure if it would be for me or for them — probably more for me, honestly — but I don’t really care… I just need to have it.
i don’t want to grow up. it’s overrated.
Josh, it’s been a while since you posted and since we’ve caught up. I’ll write soon. But for now I’m nannying and have to pay attention to the kids. Funny how that works, huh? ha ha. Anyway, good to see you posting again. Dig up those Josh Allan thoughts, and share them with us. :)
