    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.

“I wanted to make you love a murderer. There’s no way of redeeming him. He’s a drunk and a killer. He killed at least seven people (that we know of). But there were reasons he was a bad guy. He was surrounded by evil in those days. A lot of people were killed building modern Florida—modern everywhere. Watson had plenty of opportunities to see how rough those guys were playing and he thought he could do it too. At least he rationalized it that way. He had the devil beaten out of him and became a very dangerous guy. And he couldn’t handle his liquor, which is one of the worst aspects of him. And he went crazy. Understanding how that happened is useful, I think. There’s no reason any one of us couldn’t be Edgar Watson.”
