Lately a lot of horse ads are showing up in my Facebook sidebar, with captions like "Create your Dream Horse", "Pony for Free!" and "Horseproblems Australia". Ok, I live in Calgary, which has a culture much like a large Texas city, so maybe the advertisers assume that as a female living in cowboy country, I'm obsessed with horses.
Rammstein is on the road again, and they've got a new video that starts out sugar sweet but descends into darkness and mayhem. Wanton women, fire eaters, acrobats and jokers are the usual suspects, but frontman Till Lindemann takes it all one inevitable step further with his tonsorial homage to Simon "Schlitzie" Metz.
