This video has been making the internets rounds over the last few days - mostly on the homo blogs, and mostly because porn "ingenue" Arpad Miklos is in it.
I won't deny the man is nice to look at - like a younger, well-built and probably hairier, Greek Jimmy Smits - but it really is the two minutes of music that have me enthralled.
I know nothing of Perfume Genius and who knows if I'll even see what else they(?) have, but I have probably watched/listened to "Hood" a dozen times. It is not just the lyrics, but I am digging the music and how it builds.
Actually, I like the video too. And not because Mr. Miklos is nice to look at. What? He is. I can't say I've seen any of this "work", but what kind of homo is he? He can barely brush hair with it looking painful for the singer and what do I know about applying make-up? Let alone to a girl-boy. But I'd never hire him as a make-up artist. I am willing to be that is not what his out-calls are for.
Ok, the Freddie Kreuger blade / nails are a little weird, but over all, I like the song and video. Yes, this could be a My Music Monday submission, but no...........it's kind of a filler post for the weekend.
