07/17/2005: There are some things you just can't wrap your mind around....
and for me, a Hasidic Jewish reggae rapper is one of them (link to a QuickTime video of a recent Jimmy Kimmel show; you may need QuickTime to see it).

UPDATE: This is a preemptive strike against the inevitable comment...
I have given due consideration to the possibility that Matisyahu is an elaborate joke, just like the concept of an Amish rock band (and for the record, I have copies of every Electric Amish CD ever produced to date). In fact, if Matisyahu is a joke, it's an absolutely f*cking brilliant one. So far, though, I'm not sure I can tell if it's a joke or not.
Then again, if I see The Electric Amish on Letterman, Conan, or Jimmy Kimmel anytime soon, I'll revise that assessment.
