The little boy is my 17 year old cousin. His name is Aaron and I won't say his last name just for personal questions. His nationality is Vietnamese and he did this when he was about nine. He quit acting just because of waking up too early in the morning. He is now in high school. Made it into ASAP and is one of my favorite cousins.

"The lane next over is always faster
And you wait so long until you're so bothered
But right after you complete your merge
The lane you started in gets going
And while you wait for your luck to change
All you can of is where you started

You don't like anything on local radio,
So you fumble around 'til you land on NPR
And listen to World News
'Well a bomb went of in the parking lot of a newly opened Sunni market place'
And the clouds cover your car
Just at the right time for you to see the dark on your face
In the mirror

Your phone goes off with a picture of your mother
It's five 'til six, and she can't find your brother
And while normally you'd yell and scream
Instructing her to go and find him on her own
But calmly you're exiting,
And telling her that you are headed on your way home
She does not know what to say, just glad you're on your way
You turn off your phone in a different tone
As you think
The bad that feels so bad makes the good so good"

these lyrics. so simple and so great. songwriting doesn't have to be difficult, it just needs to speak to the people who are listening.

I like this video, it seems like it was a plane crash. The pilots have their uniforms and also have red bands, the red bands on their arms are used in post emergency situations to distinguish people's health situation. Green bands means their okay, yellow is injured but able to walk, red is critical. They even have the heart EKG symbol on the bands that shows heart beat. The other people could be the passengers, the oxygen that they are passing around represents the oxygen masks that drops in the airplane when loss of pressure is experienced. If I had to guess I'd say that everyone on the beach is actually dead. Clever music video I like it a lot. Message of the video and song? Enjoy life, even when you face death.

Wonder what the local natives thought of this video.

The first 3 lines of this song happens to me daily. I was going to write that whenever it does occur I play this song and calm myself down, but... I don't and usually just swear excessively and extremely loud.

I love this song, I listened to it today to wake me up and prepare for the day. On another note, were the splashes from hawaiian punch supposed to be reminiscent of Lessner's video for Fool's Gold? Hmmmm...

Fell in love at Glastonbury, hooked ever since. These fellas ooze with sincerly playful heartbreaking shouts of joyous positivity.
