“Afterwards, they feel embarrassed or disliked. And then they turn it around and say: I was attacked, I was surprised, I was shattered into THE room. But if everything went well, and if it had given them a great career, they would not talk about it. I hate rape. I hate attacks. I hate sexual situations that are forced on someone. But in many cases one looks at the circumstances and thinks that the person who is considered a victim is merely disappointed.”

There’s a bunch of videos out there. Some of them are good. Some of them are a cut above. I like to think my picks for Video Of The Day are a cut (or two) above. The majority of this week week can already kiss my bumper, so I’m feeling like being vintage Morrissey levels of petulant. Here’s the Moz visual ode to James Dean, one pompadoured gent’s tribute to the life of a pompadoured gent gone far too soon. Also, it’s hard to believe this classic gem is pushing 30.
