My favorite genre of love is Stockholm Syndrome. I love any piece of art (music, movies, literature, etc) that plays with this idea. I think that love, in a way, is the ultimate form of SS. How many unhealthy relationships have we found our friends or ourselves in... just total hostages of our own hearts holding us captive.

Cults' "Abducted" is my new favorite song on the subject. I hope you enjoy:

And ... since I love any opportunity to mention Muse, here's their video for "Stockholm Syndrome":

As many of you might know, I spent the past year and a half working at Edelman (a marketing and pr agency) with one of my main clients being AXE. Over the time I worked on AXE, the folks over there began to really trust my taste in music... so much so that they let me choose the song that would be used in an online commercial for their Fixers product!!!

Now, it's no secret that I'm obsessed with Hussle Club. When my brother-from-another-mother, Josh Madden, turned me onto Hussle Club I immediately punched him in the face for holding them from me for so long. Black Terry fronting a goth band that sounds like Bauhaus at a rave? SIGN ME UP. This is why I'm BEYOND excited that AXE agreed to use Hussle Club's "Quarenteenagers" for the commercial!

I'm now at NYLON Magazine as the Director of Music Marketing, and I couldn't be happier about the legacy I've left behind! Please take a look at the commercial. Post it! Spread the love! Thank you!
