How to make your mental train jump the tracks

Watch the video for the Johnny Cash cover of Nine Inch Nails' "Hurt":

http://www.losthighwayrecords.com/johnnycash/video/440063339_02_100k.asx

(Or if you're using Mac OS X's Windows Media Player, try cutting and pasting the pseudo-URL: mms://windowsmedia.umusic.com/losthighway/440063339_02_100k.wmv -- it'll work. Change the "100" to "250" in either URL if you want the higher bitrate version.)

The disturbing thing about it is that it's a good cover, in a peculiar way--and a very good video. Cash looks like a tired old man now--and the video ties that directly into the song's theme.
