A Public Service Announcement

"One thing about music: when it hits you, you feel no pain."
-Bob Marley

Well, shit, Bob. I found out today that I have high blood pressure, as well as the rest of my family. I understand how everyone else does, but not me. My parents have careers. My sister is trying to find one. The equation isn't difficult here. I, on the other hand, work at a pool during the summer, I'm still in college, and I devote what seems like 20 hours a day listening to music. So, Bob, what the hell? I even listened and watched the video above and took my blood pressure again. It went up. That has to be one of the most peaceful videos ever created, and yet in some minuscule manner (2 blood pressure points to be exact) it managed to stress me out. In Bob's defense, though, I was wondering about the time lapse photography involved rather than the music. So, despite the notion that I may be popping blood pressure pills when I'm not even out of my twenties, I still plan on maintaining my 20 hours devoted to tunes. I just may have to watch this video once in a while rather than blowing my ear drums to Biggie. If you're seemingly screwed like I am, watch the video above or listen to Bob below and let him take the pain away.
