Happiness is to be found when in pursuit of it, in the soothed expectation, on the way, not only upon the arrival. Accepting detours, just going the way, which is anyhow not this obvious to anyone.
Thomas Bettinelli

Happiness is just a hairflip away.

"The way the system works now, you see the clothes, within an hour or so they're online, the world sees them. They don't get to a store for six months. The next week, young celebrity girls are wearing them on red carpets. They're in every magazine. The customer is bored with those clothes by the time they get to the store. They're overexposed, you're tired of them, they've lost their freshness".

Tom Goss - "Son of a preacher man"

You discovered him on Morphosis with his hot vids for "Make believe" in 2012, "Bears" in 2013, or "Breath and sound" last year (click on titles to be redirected). American singer-songwriter Thomas Patrick Goss is back with "Son of a preacher man". You may not know, but he has self-released five studio albums, one live album, two EPs, and multiple singles. Tom Goss was born in Quincy, Illinois, and raised in Kenosha, Wisconsin. He graduated from the University of Central Missouri before coming to Washington DC to attend a Roman Catholic seminary. Shortly after entry, he decided to take a different path and pursued work in the nonprofit industry, working at Charlie's Place as a program manager in Washington DC. He also pursued his music, performing in local coffeehouses. During this time, he came out of the closet and soon after met his husband, Mike, whom he married in October 2010. As you can imagine, "Son of a preacher man" is a cover of Dusty Springfield's famous song she released back in 1968. It was written by John Hurley and Ronnie Wilkins. Out of the many versions of this hit, Cam Clarke recorded it in 1999, giving it a gay interpretation. So does Tom Goss in his music video. Directed by Michael Serrato and starring Devin Freeman & Kevin Norman, it tells the story of two sweet-talkin' teens struggling to understand their sexuality, and feelings for one another, while operating within the confines of an evangelical church. The clip follows the son of an anti-gay preacher after he falls in love with another boy in his father's congregation and reveals what happens when the relationship is subsequently discovered. "The story of the video is one that hits home to me. I had planned to become a Catholic priest -I spent 18 months in seminary following college before I realized I was gay. I also attempted suicide when I was 13. Although it was for different reasons, it's a place that I've been", explained Tom Goss.
