Artists are weird. I watched a bunch of Pink's videos, and I was struck by the odd mixture of topics and emotions expressed. For example, there's my favorite video of hers, Family Portrait, which talks about the impact of divorce, but she's also got to Get the Party Started, which is just silly. Then there's Stupid Girls, one of my new favorites, which speaks about the collapse of female empowerment, to contrast with Just Like a Pill, about a drug overdose.

I think the thing that really makes it weird to me is the contrast with how dreadfully calm I am. My emotional meter doesn't swing, it just vibrates a little. I am almost always on the slightly positive side of contented. Still, artists are weird.
