Holy smokes! This is the 193rd Framed ever written. This means that, in less than two months, we'll be writing the sure-to-be-legendary 200th Framed of all time! Can even we stand up to the pressure?
Probably. Anyway, this week we have the Weepies. Who are they?, you ask. To explain, let's steal some content from Wikipedia and, for once, actually admit it. The Weepies are an indie pop-folk band fronted by singer-songwriters Deb Talan and Steve Tannen. Their music has been described as "subtly intoxicating folk-pop."
Our video is "Red Red Rose," which seems to be all about a girl--let's call her Rose--who's fetching, in a goofy Hollywood sort of way, and goes on an adventure to meet her True Love. It's actually not a bad video, and we have high hopes you'll like it.
As a bonus, we've written captions to the video that--although unrelated to the band, the video, or life on any level that we know--may provoke a chuckle or two. We have no idea why we do this.
Please enjoy the Weepies, their terrific video, and our captions, and be back here again next week for even more!
