The video we're featuring is "Vivir Mi Vida," a new Vevo premier that's picked up over six million views in a week. The title translates into English as "Live My Life," and the lyrics are about living and enjoying life; laughing and dancing instead of crying and suffering.
Good advice, to be sure, readers! The video's in black and white, so we asked Marc to comment, in caption form, on the artistic values involved in that choice.
He graciously agreed, but we think he may have misunderstood us. That happens to us a lot. But, since we're on a tight deadline, we'll go with what he gave us, and hope it all goes well.
See you next week, readers! With a whole new Framed!

7 -- "This African-American girl and her peers might even start thinking that there are two classes in America: the white and the non-white. A crazy notion, to be sure!"
8 -- "Singing the blues would be out of the question!"
9 -- "Ha, ha! Sorry, but I can't do any songs by Green Day, Deep Purple, or Brownsville Station!"
10 -- "Don't run that light, motorcyclist! It's gray!"
11 -- "And the players of beisbol would know nothing of the famed Cincinnati Reds!"
