Music Monday – “Me and monkey/Like Butch and the Sundance Kid Trying to understand/Why he did what he did/Why he did what he did”

The worst mass shooting in recent US history (so far) happened yesterday and I don’t even know what to say anymore.

Should I talk about gun control?  Mental health & personality disorders?  Gun controlMedia narratives? Gun control? Deja vuGun controlDisinformation? Gun control?

Or should I just throw up my hands at the futility of trying to say anything and instead, post a song that Robbie Williams recorded in 2002 which is about his cocaine addiction but contains eerie similarities to yesterday’s shooting including references to not only the Mandalay Bay and guns but even to being on the 33nd floor (the gunman was on the 32nd) and hoping not to shoot anyone! 😮

It sounds like something from r/conspiracy but the UK press (where Williams is on the level of a Justin Timberlake) have noted the coincidence, even if the US hasn’t caught it.

At any rate, that’s what I’m posting today since that’s about as likely to help me understand what happened as much as anything else I might read?

(Note: I don’t do a lot of disclaimers on this blog but this video shows a very large crowd at a concert and includes a screen behind Williams showing imagery that some might find disturbing, especially in light of today’s events.)
