    Wow That’s a heavyweight’s greatest hits knockout reel. Things I learned:
    Fiona Apple has hip bones and they are nice.
    David Bowie worries about the pain in his knees.
    Johnny Cash had humility forced on him by encroaching old age (don’t we all).
    Jay Z; it took 57 shots to bring him down.
    …watching it once.

    There are times when I am convinced that Romanek’s video for Johnny Cash’s “hurt” is the greatest music video of all time. And not just because both Johnny and June (who look very frail) died not terribly long after it was made.

“Now I am awake to the world. I was asleep before. When they slaughtered Congress, we didn’t wake up. When they blamed terrorists and suspended the Constitution, we didn’t wake up either. They said it would be temporary. Nothing changes instantaneously. In a gradually heating bathtub you’d be boiled to death before you knew it.”

“One of my favorite things in watching any performance on film is when there isn’t a lot of cutting going on and when you get a chance to become really absorbed in the artist in hand. The same way we do, hopefully, at a concert, when we get a chance to really trip in to something that’s happening on stage. Whether the singer’s singing, or one of the other musicians is playing, we sort of stay there instead of cutting round with our eyes a lot.”
~ Jonathan Demme
