When I read an article about some group honoring the folk singer John Prine it mentioned a song some other musicians performed at the ceremony (which I’ve totally forgotten the name of). Naturally I looked it up and it was okay. It didn’t make me want to listen to more though. At the end of the video it had a bunch of suggested songs to listen to. One caught my eye and I clicked play. Holy moley, talk about unlistenable! But the imagery in the video is straight out of a work by Hieronymus Bosch, or The Boscher, as my frat brothers* called him. Turn the volume down and enjoy Little Big’s (***NSFW***) rendition of “Hateful Love”.
You’ll note the inclusion of balloon tanks and guns, scantily clad models, creepy clowns, cat metaphors and Kalashnikov rifles. And a singer who is a dwarf! Get it?!? LITTLE Big? Anyway, it got me thinking about why that video would be suggested after searching for a folk song. You Tube, owned by Google (in the tank for Hillz), must have some sort of algorithm that knows what I want to see or maybe it’s Pay For Play, music industry edition.
Ah, the good old days!

It’s been a good week to have a vacation. I was wicked busy last week and this has been the perfect week to chill out before the cooler weather arrives. I haven’t got much done but I did make chili! Boy #2 turns 13 this weekend and I got him a new deer rifle which will hopefully arrive before the party.
*Disclosure: I was never in a frat.
