RJD2: A Day In The Life Of A Minotaur
Every day Rocks Off trolls the tubes of you in search of videos to share. If you have something that you think deserves to be video of the day, send a link to jef_rouner at yahoo dot com.
Your daily VJ's favorite mythical creature is without a doubt the Minotaur. Born from a bestial boinking, the half-man, half-bull resided in a labyrinth on the isle of Crete where his grandfather the king sent him other city's children to eat until Theseus curb-stomped his ass and won a princess, or a golden shoe, or something.
By contrast, RJD2 was born in Eugene, Ore., and became a famous DJ and singer.
Today's video comes straight from RJD2's turntable and is called "Let There Be Horns," from this year's Colossus. In it, a minotaur struggles with his everyday cubicle job, barely getting through with the help of a Xanax prescription and an office crush. Guess what happens when he tries to impress her by going to buy her a gift of fine chine. Go on, just you guess.
