Modern Guilt

Don’t know what I’ve done but I feel ashamed

I remember reading somewhere about an experiment from which they drew the conclusion that dogs always look as though they feel ashamed when their owner yells at them, even if they haven’t done anything wrong.

The video obviously had a small budget but the sound quality is good.

Beck has always been a cool guy but maybe a bit too ironic. It seems Beck has matured a bit on this album from 2008 so that you actually can read some sense into his lyrics. I can understand the motives behind being ironic to the max. If no-one can tell what you’re trying to say, they can’t critisize you. And in a way, you’re being more modest when you’re being ironic. Because you are not saying, I know how the world works, I know which opinions are correct. Instead, you’re kind of saying, there are folks who would say this and that in this situation and you are just giving them a voice (and making fun of them at the same time).
