I borrowed the "Hot Tub Time Machine" soundtrack a few weeks ago. I haven't seen the movie, but I was looking for an artist and the CD popped up on the catalog. When playing the CD for the first time today :P, this song started playing and I went squealing!
Man, one of the best ballads ever!
Eminem's video stars Megan Fox (Transformers) and Dominic Monaghan (Lost, Lord of the Rings, FlashForward) as a dysfunctional, violent couple. There are scenes of violence in this video, but it's from both people in the video.
( Lyrics )
It's a chilling, scary video. I haven't seen an abusive or toxic relationship in person or known people that well while they were going through an abusive or toxic relationship, but I imagine it might be like this.
Granted, watching this video was what prompted a Facebook status from earlier this month:
"So in cases where (in a heterosexual relationship) the female hits the male first/constantly, I don't think it's violence per se if he tries to restrains her and bruises end up forming..."
I got an interesting anecdote from a friend:
( Anecdote )
Yes, if someone is hitting you and they KNOW it (you know, you don't kick a baby down because they're waving their arms around and happen to hit you over and over again but they don't have control over it), you are definitely within your rights to try to restrain them with just enough force to stop them. It doesn't matter if they're female and you're male. And yes, it definitely does suck if the female goes "he held me down" and everybody automatically thinks the man's abusive and she should get away from him, when he had to hold her down because she was punching and hitting him and won't stop if/when he says "Stop!" People are still more geared towards thinking the male in a hetersexual relationship is the violent one, if there has to be a violent partner.
I don't have this song on my iTunes, so I've been replaying it on YouTube over and over again.

It doesn't appear they allow comments on the website I found this on. Pity. I wonder about the context my personality psychology professor will discuss dissociative personality disorder when we (finally) get to personality disorders. I know it's listed under Dissociative disorders instead of Personality disorders in the DSM-IV, but I think he'll see it as important in his class. *crosses fingers*
"To hospital for gunshot wounds or eat my delicious sandwich first? Nom, nom, nom..."
Yes, a man went home to eat his lunch before he went to the hospital for his two gunshot wounds. Amazing. One was in the left leg, the other in the groin. Also, the lack of fervor about the shooter is...disturbing?
I'm sorry for junking your friendslist with entries. Still scared to go to sleep.
I love this song.

Ah, double entendres and translations to other languages can be so amusing sometimes!
