Today on Music Video Monday, "Closer" by Nine Inch Nails https://youtu.be/PTFwQP86BRs This video used to scare the shit out of me when I was younger. Now, it's basically my life in a nutshell. Disembodied pig parts. Nudity. BDSM. Trent Reznor suspended in midair. Or just nudity, really.

Today on Music Video Monday, "Losing My Religion" by REM. There is not a single flaw in this entire five minute span of time. It is my favorite food. It is all the nitrogen particles in the atmosphere. It is every perfectly-shaped red blood cell coursing through my veins. It is a masterpiece.
