Into the Holes. ALL OF THEM.

In the age of ultra-polished music videos featuring flawless human specimens in various stages of aggressive air-humping, we oft forget the common man. What about that guy behind 7-11, who claims to be a sailor, smells of fish, and gives you the stinkeye? What of uncle Merv, whose gravy-encrusted beard and consistent belligerence have become an almost-comforting staple at family gatherings? I for one, am tired of steely abs and tits on my screen [there are so many, all the time]. In the VonSwank-directed video below, justice is served as Josh Heironymous* represents the intrepid proletarian to the tranquil sound of “Into the Holes” by Lily Fawn. Sit back, relax, get your zen on and enjoy three minutes of a Real Man giving his all to the camera, the way you’ve always dreamed of.

*I note, not without triumph, that Joshua and I shared a Chicago apartment during my one year of college. I got to watch him do this all the time.

    Mr. Heironymous and I seem to have a great deal in common.
    Hooray for scrawny white dudes with crooked teeth and wild beards (mine is not so magnificent, I confess).
    And great eyes. We both have great eyes.
    Cuz we’re sexy bitches.

    Indeed, Josh’s eyes ARE pretty excellent and his beard is a thing of legend, but I’m most fond of his super-knuckles.

  3. Tertiary Says:

    He should do some hand modeling for Coilhouse then, I think.
    Perhaps we all should.

    Yes. Exactly.

    I’m surprised, actually, that Coilhouse hasn’t done a feature on Lily Fawn, as The Hank and Lily Show is one of the more interesting bands rattling around the Pacific Northwest, as they wander around as the musical, mythicalpunk accompaniament and heroes of their very own comic book. He as an apocolyptic cowboy that carries his dead girlfriend seriesaround in a garbage bag and her as an antlered, saw playing deer creature that tap dances while crying. Their look is AMAZING. The pictures on their site just don’t capture how bloody lovely they look on stage.

    I am unsure if this relates but I REALLY like the song, it kinda reminds me on cocorosie, but not really. There comic book sounds worth a look at though.
