I Haven't Been A Perfect Man

Yeasayer gets a lot of love around these parts. I haven't ordered the album yet, mostly because I haven't been moved by the snippets I heard. I'm going to do it soon. I kinda have to. But that said, this is a really lovely song. 


The video is creepy. What's up with indie kids and these horror-influnced/nightmarish videos? That's been an adjustment for a black kid coming out of hip-hop. Thriller excepted, we don't really "do" horror in our videos around the way. Heh. I believe you'd get your ass kicked for watching something like this man...

Born in 1975, the product of two beautiful parents. Raised in West Baltimore -- not quite The Wire, but sometimes ill all the same. Studied at the Mecca for some years in the mid-'90s. Emerged with a purpose, if not a degree. Slowly migrated up the East Coast with a baby and my beloved, until I reached the shores of Harlem. Wrote some stuff along the way.
