He once was a member of the Pharcyde hip-hop group. Instead of the usual braggadocio of rap lyrics, he talks honestly about his simple life, his failings and the facade he presents. A tremendously honest song. It reminds me of Johnny Cash's version of Hurt in that respect. There is IMO a really good making of documentary by Spike Jonze that provides a lot more context.
I would actually go a step further than you and say many of them are great short films with great soundtracks. How can one possibly hear Da Funk and invent a story about a dog boy on crutches with a boom box? Or make Electrobank about gymnastics drama or maybe faded high school glory days? Amazing.

Life is glorious. There are no more Guinea pigs or chickens, sadly (because foxes. Red foxes AND super-rare-in-Europe black foxes). There is a cat, however, whose raison d'être appears to be tormenting the dog.
Oh no. That's a shame to hear about the guinea pigs and chickens. Wildlife will do that. We also have foxes around here, but also raccoons, possums, and coyotes to pay attention to too. They all of course provide their unique challenges.
And yes. It's hot here right now. I don't think there's a single state here in America that isn't hot at the moment.
