Feet on the ground – head in the clouds.

Gnarls Barkley – Going On

This video is awesome, the duo is progress personified and everything they becomes a roadmap to distant lands.  If you don’t love them, you should find out why.

Any who needs what they want and doesn’t want what they need, I want nothing to do with.

Honestly this video keeps on consuming me.  It gives me chills.  The song is great, but the video adds such a real dimension that it gives the song power.  At least for me.  

It makes me recall experiences from this week and fifteen years ago, all at once.  I think about a rich prick who doesn’t tip the valet, who insults everyone trying to assist them, who believes money buys respect and prestige.  Then I remember an old friend who lived in a 9′ x 9′ hotel-turned-apartment, who once stole a bag of dog biscuits from my neighbor to have as a snack when his mom didn’t have enough money for groceries.  What shocks me most about these two experiences is only how common they have proven to be over the years.  

Duality is an insanely magnetic pole.
