John Prine’s witty video for “Lonesome Friends of Science” was released today.  The video was illustrated by Barcelona-based graphic designer Tiago Majuelos and produced by the Spanish animation production company Bliss.  It might be what you need to view in these times, regardless of your viewpoints.  Then again, if you’re of a certain persuasion you’re either so inclined or averse so pick your poison.  You do have a choice.
