Every two or three months we like to reintroduce our blog. This isn't for our regular readers, most of whom are geniuses, but for newer readers, who may be momentarily confused by the content herein.

Framed posts a different music video every week, and, then — using 21st century technology — clips 12 still frames from the video. We then write captions for these still pictures. Inevitably, our captions are topical, ironic, funny as all get-out, and, in general, praiseworthy.

The stars of our videos are the greatest music artists the world has ever known, and have included Michael Jackson, the Beatles, Bob Dylan, James Brown, Frank Sinatra, and, of course, Justin Bieber. Readers respond to the blog by posting their own comments, which are uniformly great.

This week our guest is Boyz II Men, the biggest-selling R&B group of all time, and their excellent new video, "One Up For Love," from their new, and tenth, LP, Twenty. The song has a warm, contemporary Christian feel and a simple, straightforward message that rings true.

By the way, did we mention that we get paid for writing this? A lot?

See you next week!
