Hey, I just met you, and this is Lazy... get these fast finance fixes and mail me, maybe?

I Can Ride My Bike With No Handlebars (and weekend links)

Written by

Like almost all of my weekend posts, I try to highlight something that's not necessarily related to personal finance. Maybe it's a small detail of something that's going on my life. Earlier this week, I was driving to the store to do some shopping and I heard an unusual song. It caught my attention because I would categorize it as rap, but I don't listen to channels that typically play rap. Perhaps it's a lot like one of favorite bands, Cake.

I went home and found the the video on YouTube. I showed it to my wife and she agreed that it was even better than the song itself. Unfortunately, YouTube has disabled the embedding of this video, so you'll have to click over to catch Handlebars by Flobots. There's a great story about the paths that you can choose... how power can corrupt... things of that nature... lots of great symbolism... basically the reason why I miss MTV showing music videos. About the only thing that I didn't learn was a good place to buy bicycle handlebars

    I didn’t disguise it well, did I?

    Love that video/song, it definitely holds up to repeat viewing. Thanks for sharing it.

    I miss the days of MTV’s great music videos, too. They missed a bet by not starting up YouTube themselves, didn’t they? Would have been a natural online expansion of their franchise…

    Definitely an interesting song, I heard it several times before I watched the video.

    My interpretation was that the song was a comment on the current government, “driving with no handlebars”.

    The video adds another idea, two paths diverged in a yellow wood….

    I was pretty sure the song was about sex..
