The Curse of Love

I love Josh Ritter. He has spent most of his days, carefully crafting folk music that anyone with a soul would enjoy. His latest music video off of his sixth album "The Curse" song/video is a love story between an archaeologist and a mummy. In it, Ritter painted a picture of of a very tragic reality, he told NPR's 'all songs considered' "Sometimes you can find what you think is love, what you think is a sure thing, and in the end it's much worse for you than you ever would've expected".

This is one of the better videos I have seen in a long long time. It is executed by puppeteer extraordinaire Liam Hurley, and its pretty genius. Take a look.
