Sunday Songs

A 7 minute and 40 seconds long video you may want to skip if you dislike artsy-fartsy melodrama or Sienna Miller, but I happen to like the song.

Directed by Tony Kaye, Art Direction by Damien Hirst.

Speaking of Hirst, apparently he recently laid off about 17 people who he employed to produce handpainted pills. He also laid off three employees who made his butterfly paintings. What's interesting to me is not that people lost their jobs during a recession, but that Damien Hirst must be the only artist in the world who could hire, let alone lay off, employees. I guess he'll have to count on the tiny staff he has left to help him make things like £50 million diamond encrusted skulls.
