Is there anything in this world that you would be unwilling to live without? Food, clothing and shelter. Love and art. Are these things too much to ask?
Lyrics and music by
During 2011, Jared Leto directed a short film titled "Hurricane" inspired by a song of the same name by Thirty Seconds to Mars on their fourth studio album titled "This is War".
Much of "Hurricane" is filmed on location in New York City with Jared performing as the lead character within a surreal "dreamscape" alive with archetypal imagery and introspective narrative.
The only artwork more interesting than "Hurricane" is the "The Making of Hurricane", which provides an amazing opportunity to see the mundane details and truth of filmmaking.
Not long after the filming of "Hurricane", Occupy Wall Street became the greatest human spectacle in the world until that time. Those interested and actively involved in the Occupy Wall Street effort would meet to speak, express and solve problems at a donated space located on Walker Street near Broadway, which is near many of the filming locations chosen by Jared and his team. Chambers St, Brooklyn Bridge City Hall, the many side streets of Tribeca and Walker St have become so loved and well remembered within my heart from the years that I made my home in New York City.
I learned of Jared's art after Occupy Wall Street. I believe, it is worth saying, that "The Kill" is deeply relevant and iconic of the experiences, thoughts, feelings and ideology within my perception of the people I knew and the events that occurred during Occupy Wall Street. So much so, I am inspired to sing this song.Is there anything in this world that you would be unwilling to live without? Food, clothing and shelter. Love and art. Are these things too much to ask?
