We made it. It's Friday. I have been beaten this week, toyed with. The weather has gone up, it's gone down, it's cold, it's spring, oh wait, no pause... it's still winter. I honestly feel like I have been going through a car wash, but I'm stuck at the point where the oscillating brush things spin around the car and give it several good slaps before it emerges ready to dazzle the world.
My almost natural inclination while going through this life turmoil has been to run away. To run away from this hell that is New York City and flee those jam-packed subways that lately seem full of more miserable people than normal. I can't do that; I am an adult that needs to face life and take these beatings otherwise known as "lessons" before emerging fresh. I can, however, mentally check out for approximately four minutes with Brooklyn-based band Snowmine and their new video for "Silver Sieve." The video, which was released earlier this week, is artist Martin Francis Shields's fitting interpretation of the battles and struggles we endure to survive, or rather, to win. So this Friday night, create a cocoon for yourself, enlarge the video player to full screen, endlessly loop "Silver Sieve," and get lost.
