Wood becomes a flute when it’s loved
Mirror becomes a razor when it’s broken
From a decade or so ago comes a minor classic which still raises a smile.
The Official Accout:
“The IYI crew visited Alton, Illinois to interview Brett Stawar of the Alton Tourism Bureau.
Alejandro Cruz, the videographer, had technical difficulties with his wireless mic set, and couldn’t capture any of Aileesha Breedlove’s interview questions. This is what we did to salvage the segment.
Ryan Wiggins wrote approximately 90% of the lyrics based on rough edits, and performed the resulting vocal arrangement.”
The Unofficial Account:
You don’t have to measure everything by the ability of the super rich to buy Rolex watches.
They are shouting at you.
They always are.
Sometimes clear, but mostly tinnitus;
a malfunction of the ear.
The constant whine; “Think this, be that.”
You do not hear?
Line by line; “Fear this, hate that.”
You are rewritten.
…and when we want it.
