If you haven't seen it yet, Mark "One Hour Photo" Romanek's video of Johnny Cash's cover of a Nine Inch Nails tune is one of the more moving music videos I've seen in a long time. I don't know if I'd go so far as to say that the video "revived" Cash's career, but it probably put the Man in Black in a lot of cd players of people who wouldn't have bought his album otherwise.

Cash was on Larry King -- I have no idea how I wound up watching it, for Larry King is a minor demon -- several months ago, when Hurt came out. Seeing him talking about his life and his health troubles and all -- he is weak and damaged -- and then seeing Hurt, which is all about looking back, about sounding the gap between youth and impending death -- was moving, to say the least. Sometimes L. King is smart enough to get out of the way.
