Framed

Jimi Hendrix, Framed

Framed

Hello to all, and thanks for coming by. You may be wondering what Framed is, and why you should read it religiously.

We're glad you wondered!

Framed is a blog that talks about music videos from all genres and eras. Every week you'll find a different video here for your viewing pleasure. Furthermore, you'll find expert video analysis, by which we mean a few easily-researched facts clumsily cut-and-pasted into one of our paragraphs.

Yes, Framed is a treasure trove of informative entertainment. And, wait, there's more! We also freeze a dozen pictures from that same video, and then write captions for them! And the captions are funny! So funny, in fact, that you'll soon be saying, "Holy cow! Had I known there was a blog this hilarity-packed, I'd not only have read it every week, I would have told all my friends and family, thereby rising in their esteem!"

Ahem.

Well, don't be too hard on yourself. This week we're happy to feature the guy with the #1 album in the country, Jimi Hendrix, and his legendary performance of "The Star Spangled Banner" at Woodstock. You probably already know that this is one of those rock moments on a par with Elvis on Ed Sullivan, the Beatles' rooftop concert, and Dylan going electric at Newport, so we won't belabor it. Just kick back, watch Jimi at his best, and then "groove" on this week's captions.

See you next week!
