i was here

this might be old news to all of you who are more online savvy than me, but the killers' music video, that source of schoolgirl giddiness (still waiting to hear from you, brandon flowers!) and internet censorship, is finally out. (it appears the censorship might still be on, as the embedding option for the video was "disabled by request." but, click on that link and it will take you there.)

i have to say, i think the whole thing looked a lot cooler in real life than it does in this video. some parts of it are, frankly, downright weird. and there were definitely no mountain lions on set, so i am not sure what that is all about. there is also, apparently, some disagreement about whether the chorus says, "are we human/or are we dancer?" or "are we human/or are we denser?" my first-hand opinion is that the word is "dancer" not "denser," but both are pretty idiotic, so i don't think it really matters.

on a more positive note, brandon flowers is completely hot. and the song might have dumb lyrics, but it's still catchy and i like it. and the aerial shots of the valley (i was in that helicopter!) and other long shots of the set are pretty stunning. and, most importantly, i was there. so, lame or not, this video has a special place in my heart.

and, here's a little bonus for you. i don't know if anyone saw the killers on saturday night live recently, but click here and tell me if mr. flowers' jacket looks familiar...

For what it is worth, says it is "are we human/or are we dancer." Not sure what that means, but then I am an AC/DC kind of guy.

As an addendum, when you watch the video, there is a pop up in the lower left corner for lyrics. It states that the word under consideration is "dancer" and goes into a long explanation of the song. To me, if you have to go to such lengths to explain the song and the lyrics, then they are too obtuse.

You are so cute. I have to just come out and say that I totally blog stalk you, and I laugh out loud when I read your blog entries! I'm so glad that the video is now available, and have so enjoyed your insider view! :)
