to follow along with my post about fridays, the below memorial to alex chilton written by his wife is a good example of what i referred to. it has less than a thousand views on youtube. in fact, i'm quite sure that the number of people who've seen the friday video outnumbers the number of people who've heard an alex chilton song (not including the box tops) on a scale from the ocean to this tear in my hand.




i love "he just said the other day that he wished he could be awake 24/7 – life was too interesting and he didn’t want to waste it sleeping. i laughed at that, but i knew he was serious." so true. dreams are the only saving grace of sleep. and that mix of analyticity and spontaneity.


so, i foolishly neglected to mention the other day, diminishing my ability to persuade my friend to end her journaling hiatus in the face of all the negativity is that the best way to accomplish criticism without much negativity, and often the most effective way, is with satire and parody. already two of my favorites have parodied the friday video with versions of their own, jimmy enlisting the help of stephen colbert & the roots (and raising $26k for charity at the same time), and conan with his song, thursday. (NB: i don't recommend these for everyone, especially if you haven't suffered through the original song).

jimmy & stephen

conan's is only a minute long and you have to fast forward to about 2:32.
