Craig Mod, what's the last great thing you saw?

It's disingenuous for me to say that this is the "last" great thing I saw, as I've seen this video now many times. But because I make it a point to watch it frequently, frequently it is the last great thing I've seen.

I mean just … What? What is going on here? Who is this guy? What is coming out of his hands and mouth? Listen to the cadence, the accents. The dropped articles. To see Ry so young and yet so preternaturally full of whatever-the-hell-it-is-that-runs-down-your-spine when you open yourself to this reminds me a bit of Winehouse. I got the same shock when I first saw how young she was. You're not supposed to be able to pull such rawness from humanity in your twenties.
