Bloodbuzz Ohio - The National

Stand up straight at the foot of your love
I lift my shirt up
Stand up straight at the foot of your love
I lift my shirt up

I was carried to Ohio in a swarm of bees
I'll never marry but Ohio don't remember me

Lay my head on the hood of your car
I'll take it too far
Lay my head on the hood of your car
I'll take it too far

I still owe money to the money to the money I owe
I never thought about love when I thought about home
I still owe money to the money to the money I owe
The floors are falling out from everybody I know

I'm on a blood buzz
Yes I am
I'm on a blood buzz
I'm on a blood buzz
God I am
I'm on a blood buzz

I was carried to Ohio in a swarm of bees
I'll never marry but Ohio don't remember me

I'm on a blood buzz
Yes I am
I'm on a blood buzz

This vid totally BLEW ME AWAY although I have absolutely no idea what it's about. SO compelling and gorgeous.

All I knew about Breaking Bad before seeing this vid is that it's about some guy -- apparently THIS guy -- who used to be a science teacher and then, uh, bad stuff happens. So, um, possibly I am not the ideal audience for this vid?

And yet I loved it -- it's one of my personal standouts from the Premieres show -- and not only because of the song (although: YAY THIS SONG). I get such a clear sense of at least some of the story elements: a science teacher, his family, his 50th birthday... and then some sort of health-related collapse, financial problems, a chance encounter with drug dealers, the decision to start making meth, and then a series of increasingly violent drug-related incidents.

But what comes through most clearly, and what I find most compelling, is the emotional story: a guy whose decisions take him terrifyingly far from the life he used to have and the person he used to be and who is ultimately bewildered by those changes... and yet he keeps on making those drug meets and signing those checks. The song is just so perfect for that story: "I was carried to Ohio in a swarm of bees" is a line that doesn't make much literal sense but makes enormous emotional sense in a slightly surreal way that seems to fit this show amazingly well.

So, basically, you = awesome. Not that that's news. :D
