musical monday: "don't write yourself off yet"

"Jimmy Eat World - The Middle"

I heard this in the car the other day and it was the first time I've ever really listened to the music. Overall, I like the song. It's a little You against Them (who are all the same, apparently) but I like the self-confidence vibe.

The video? Umm...okay. I won't get into it a lot here, but a lot of my self-esteem problems come from body image issues, which I feel is the case for a lot of people (mind you, I haven't conducted any studies). With the exception of maybe one person, all of these people seem to have bodies that would fit "our" current ideal.


And, why is the highest rated comment, "In Soviet Russia, world eats Jimmy"? I'm definitely missing something here.

Maybe it is the highest rated because they don't get it either.
