Yeah, sorry about not posting in like a week.  There really wasn’t any reason behind it, just a pathetic case of writer’s block.  I realize the latest Video of the Week is long overdue, so here it is.  I remember hearing this song a lot around the time it came out, which was during those hellish pre-teen years that I’d prefer to forget all about.  I don’t think I really understood the song back then, but I think I recall finding the video kinda cool.  But then, I was always a sucker for M.C. Escher, so there ya go.  Anyway, this song now has a profound relevance to my life right now, though in perhaps a more literal way than was intended by Brandon Boyd, the band’s oft-shirtless frontman.  See, the song is supposedly about getting over the fear that runs our lives and keeps us from our real desires.  Or something.  And that’s kinda what’s been going on with me right now, at least when it comes to actually, literally driving.  I’ve had my license for almost six years, but in those six years, my crippling fear of actually driving has kept me from actually using that license to…you know, go places (and I don’t mean getting into bars and casinos.  Which is a perk, I guess, even though I don’t gamble and the taste of alcohol makes me gag).  But I’ve realized now that my parents and little brother drive me around forever, and I’ve gotten to the point where I feel it would be kinda nice to go places and not depend on other people to get me there.  So I’ve finally decided to do something about it, started practicing driving again, and have set a goal:  by next week, I’ll be driving myself and my mom to work (we work in the same building).  And then maybe next month, I’ll be able to drive…other places that are even a little bit further away?  But enough about my sad little life.  Here’s the stinkin’ video.  Enjoy.
