    Default Is there anything Uncountry about Jason Miller?

    I went to high school overseas, mostly with other children of diplomats and with the children of career military folks. And, some time after college, I ended up in the DC area, partly because my mother had been temporarily stationed Stateside. A funny thing about the Virgina and Maryland suburbs of Washington, DC is that they are an odd combination of global sophistication and, for want of a better term, redneck or country.

    definetely agree with this paragraph: "The song Uncountry is fucking awesome and definitely resonates with my personal experience. Blue Blood is very much about not allowing others to put you in a box or limit your options because you like black clothing or some such. One of the aspects of having moved around so much as a kid, which I really value, is that it gave me a certain perspective. Because I didn’t have one subculture or another particularly deeply ingrained to any sort of a groupthink level, I saw the common threads between my disaffected friends who listened to Lynyrd Skynyrd and my disaffected friends who listened to Bauhaus." it applies to me as well, and is a good way to look at the whole "military brat" upbringing. i had a good deal of angst growing up, and i used to blame my folks being in the miliray for a lot of it. never really though of that as a benefit indepth; but it does explain alot.

    the video and song feel more like real country than the pop country that gets all the media attention. at times, it felt almost blues-like. my fav part of the video is the ending shots, when he is staring up at the camera from under the brim of his hat. a very intense look.
