Beck was such a young gun in this video, wasn’t he?
Man, what was he thinking?
I was thinking about all the damaged comedians out there.
Are there any people who do comedy who aren’t broken in some way?
Where does that skill develop if not from pain?
Does it come from love?
Maybe there are different wells that people draw their inspiration from….?
Sometimes fear or sadness….sometimes rage and disappointment….sometimes confusion and regret….sometimes (even) love and the need for inclusion.
Comedy is often pretty cruel, isn’t it?
And, Beck! What you doing putting this anthem out there?
What floats in the air comes down to eat at us eventually….like butterflies on fresh manure.
What we carry can escape from its cage and maul.
Bury that pain deep.
If you can’t turn the pain into something hilarious….lay it to rest.
Lay your burden down.
