Don't let the barriers you have built to define who you are blind you from appreciating the unfamiliar.

Flaming Lips - Powerless

The Flaming Lips are still making albums after over twenty-five years and they are still on the cutting edge of rock, more relevant than ever.  Any band can continue to tour and record far past their expiration date and riding their previous fame to sell a crappy new album that is forgotten after the first week.  (I am looking your way Rolling Stones, Ozzy Osbourne, and Brett Michaels.  Sure, you made good music at one time in your life, but you partied too much and you really don't have any soul left to make good music.  Stop pissing on your legacy.  You don't want to be remembered as sad old men churning out trash.)  But The Flaming Lips are still making influential albums that will one day have an effect on our unborn children.

This is a simple but effective video.  As with all Flaming Lips visuals, there is a mix of creepy and happy, absurdity and beauty, unsettling and erotic.  I love the ending.  Blind freedom. Share/Bookmark
