… it kind of slipped under the radar because other stuff (like this aMAZing cover) was happening.
BUT COME ON!
David’s at the fence, desperate to come through… or stay out… or climb it… or watch a fox frolic on the other side… I don’t know, I just know he looks so longingly through the chain link.
Like he’s caged… or finally free… or yearning for the Honduras food truck on the other side….
Can’t you just see this as a single cover for Upset With Me… or Desperate… or a cover of Don’t Fence Me In….
Or the poster for a Sal Mineo/ James Dean teen-incarceration musical featuring the most beautiful, yet tortured soul to ever sing a note…
It’s not a depressing musical though, it’s hopeful, ever-hopeful… ‘cuz that’s who David is… always seeing the darkness before the dawn, the light within, all the colours of the rainbow… oh wait, it’s in black and white…
Okay, scratch that… he’s a young intern at the coal mines just taking a much needed breath of fresh air above ground at the end of a long shift and grasping the fence for dear life…
Or a young refugee aching to break out of the camp and reunite with his long lost love, Totora, so they can skip joyfully back to the old country after peace is declared and rescue their emotional support Pokemon along the way…..
Those eyes, though… those eyes… they say, “Save me!” “Heal my soul!” “Help me get my cap back, it flew over the fence!”
I’m still on antibiotics and may have a fever, so I have no idea what I’m talking about.
But great picture, eh? What do you guys think of it??
Must read! Love Jay!!
