    The visual story in these clips are very similar to the film Holy mountain and El Topo in that it has ties to the tarot. Edward hanging upside down is the 'Fool' upside down on a cross. Even the music has close ties to these films.

    I created a very strong relationship with this song, not just the letter, but the composition itself, each time I hear it is as if awakened something inside me.

    How hipster is this song now that we're in 2015 and most people have forgotten about these guys?

    Dear Edward Sharpe, Jade, and the Magnetic Zeros, While walking my dog
    today, I noticed that something was off. Your fans are getting
    desperate. Since you've split up, they've been trying pseudo-occult
    books and experimenting with stem cells found in cat brains and rabbit
    intestines. You inspired them to reconfigure their DNA and open their
    third eyes. But without your anima/animus example, the fans have begun
    mutating into creatures from our evolutionary past.
    — You are the spiritual superheroes of a corrupt digital planet. Help us
    overthrow the Old World Order Surveillance Spectacle Culture and shed
    our names like ducks shed water. Without your music as a guide, we are
    self-blind: oscillating between weird loners and terrified
    daughters-of-Dracula.
    — Getting Jade back into the fold is a spiritual test for everyone. If
    passed, your band will go beyond the deserts, shores and mountains to
    hail the birth of a new kind of music; to taste the fruits of hard-won
    wisdom; to celebrate the retreat of tyrants and demons; to cast away
    superstition and hatred; to explore the incredible, baroque
    possibilities of the mind; and to usher in the arrival of a New Golden
    Age.
