My main man, Mark (Fountain of Youth) Cutler posted a vid of himself doing the virgin skydiving thang on his MySpace page yesterday, and while the vid is cool enough (smushed-face,wild-eyes,hair akimbo)the song snippet, "Hovering", a demo that accompanies it, stayed in my head all day and deep into my nighttime dreams, a mid-period Stones throwback with a wistful, aching tone and some simple but evocative imagery, it is also a neat companion piece to one of my fave Raindogs songs, "Up in the Air". (Hey Mark, one question: Is that urban myth about pants pissing before the chute infolds true or false?)
