"Crush This Cripple Crow Into Mashed Bananas": Finally, The Ramayana Meets Psych-Folk

A wild, weird, wonderful video by singer Devendra Banhart for a song called "Carmensita". (Indians and Bollywood fans, please note the "Central Board of Film Certification" certificate at the start of the video and let your chest cavities be filled with much love, joy and pride). Via Boing Boing.

Too bad Banhart is not well-known enough to reap the benefits of some "Hindu pride" backlash ;)

I liked "Grandma! I love you in a salad way!" whatever that meant :)

lekhni: Hey, some of us *do* love our grandma in a salad way.

Anon: Gives the phrase "Jewish princess" a new dimension.
