A barren desert island though.

Someone left a space telescope out in the rain (Tom D.), Monday, 31 January 2022 18:37 (six months ago) link

i feel like one of these merits a sub-poll:

no one to fuck with my mind

- there is no one he can fuck, in a physical way
- there is no one he can fuck mentally, with his mind
- he doesn't have anyone there who will fuck with his mind, in a figurative way
- he doesn't have anyone there who will fuck with his mind, in a mental sex kind of way

I predict a landslide.

How is he getting rain on his desert island, though?

Halfway there but for you, Monday, 31 January 2022 18:40 (six months ago) link

I thought "no one to fuck" would be the obvious answer, but it was a true unexpected LOL when he hits "....and the RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIN" so going with that.

i think its clearly 1 and 3 but not sure he's smart enough to figure out what he did there.

Spottie, Monday, 31 January 2022 18:56 (six months ago) link

it does. i wonder if that's in the original or if it's a catatonic edit? either way, it leaves a lasting image

Karl Malone, Monday, 31 January 2022 19:10 (six months ago) link

i thought it was rage, not rain, but either is great obviously

Nedlene Grendel as Basenji Holmo (map), Monday, 31 January 2022 19:32 (six months ago) link

thank you to spottie for creating this poll

Nedlene Grendel as Basenji Holmo (map), Monday, 31 January 2022 19:32 (six months ago) link

man, that argument that plays out during the long alooooooones, where she slaps him.
some intense footage throughout, you can see why he was driven to this

Karl Malone, Monday, 31 January 2022 19:42 (six months ago) link

i thought it was rage, not rain, but either is great obviously

yeah, i don't know! he doesn't do either, he just goes raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyy-eeah-yeah!

Karl Malone, Monday, 31 January 2022 19:44 (six months ago) link

i'm assuming that he's going for the exact rhyme opportunity, pain/rain, but it's true that it would be more fitting for the song if it went to rage, because he's been feeling a lot

Karl Malone, Monday, 31 January 2022 19:45 (six months ago) link

i can't help but like this soul patch country guy in spite of everything

Nedlene Grendel as Basenji Holmo (map), Monday, 31 January 2022 19:46 (six months ago) link

i feel like its clearly "rain" just cos it rhymes yeah

Spottie, Monday, 31 January 2022 19:47 (six months ago) link

many fans are saying that the reason they broke up is because of the way he was leaning on her in that one scene, just before she disappears (another clue)

Karl Malone, Monday, 31 January 2022 19:49 (six months ago) link

he was "leaning on her" for support, and he depended on her, but that's what made her leave.

Karl Malone, Monday, 31 January 2022 19:50 (six months ago) link

i just watched it again and focused only on his hands... highly recommended

Spottie, Monday, 31 January 2022 19:51 (six months ago) link

Substitute this for Colin Newman’s “Alone” in Silence of the Lambs.

Ditto!

Someone left a space telescope out in the rain (Tom D.), Monday, 31 January 2022 19:55 (six months ago) link

it's definitely 'rain'. which is much more poetic, good choice.

Nedlene Grendel as Basenji Holmo (map), Monday, 31 January 2022 19:55 (six months ago) link

soul patch country guy looks to be groping his way toward reinventing country music from the ground up, first by deconstructing it into all its constituent parts, then stitching them back together again exactly the same way as they were originally, except for the massive blood loss and trauma they suffered in the process.

I think my favourite bit is the head swivel during the OOOoowhoOOO section of alooowhowhoalOOOoowhoOOOOOOOOOooooooone.

I didn't think of him as country, I thought he was like Staind recorded at home.

during the slapping scene, who is that sitting on the couch to the right?

Karl Malone, Monday, 31 January 2022 20:06 (six months ago) link

doesn't matter i guess, just a regular party scene

Karl Malone, Monday, 31 January 2022 20:07 (six months ago) link

haha, "he stood up, time to make my move!"

Nedlene Grendel as Basenji Holmo (map), Monday, 31 January 2022 20:09 (six months ago) link

each detail confirms that this guy is feeling super alone

Nedlene Grendel as Basenji Holmo (map), Monday, 31 January 2022 20:09 (six months ago) link

I'll need some citations for that claim.

yah i get no country vibes from this guy. hes clearly a late 90s/early 00s rural stapp/staind type of lad.

you'd think a search for "no one to fuck" and "with my mind" would lead you to it, but it doesn't

OMG, it's nearly 5 minutes long.

Someone left a space telescope out in the rain (Tom D.), Tuesday, 1 February 2022 16:07 (six months ago) link

i feel like one of these merits a sub-poll:

no one to fuck with my mind

- there is no one he can fuck, in a physical way
- there is no one he can fuck mentally, with his mind
- he doesn't have anyone there who will fuck with his mind, in a figurative way
- he doesn't have anyone there who will fuck with his mind, in a mental sex kind of way

There's a fifth option, that he AND his mind have a double-dating situation where they EACH pick up a girl.

many are speculating that the flashing strobes on "the rain" are an allusion to LIGHTNING striking

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 1 February 2022 17:01 (six months ago) link

The full-length version of the song comes off more pensive and less dramatic, maybe because it wanders aimlessly.
