Hey kids. The Best of 2011 cavalcade will be posted tomorrow, but in the meantime I thought I would share some of my favorite videos of the last couple years. They are probably not any new news to anyone, but they are great and posted again here for your enjoyment. Spike Jones directed 2 of them, and they are playful and fun but, the best by far and actually my favorite music video of all time is “Bombay” by El Guincho. It is absolutely staggaring in how well made and how successfully ambitious it is. I hardly noticed the first time I watched it because it’s tone is so modest. I doubt I’ll see something do this much this well for a long time. My favorite from last year is by far the “Yonkers” video by Tyler, The Creator. Who knows if those Odd Future kids will make as lasting a mark as they initially seemed, but their entrance was undeniably spectacular. This video (and their Tonight Show appearance) were instrumental in their overnight rocket to stardom. The video does what any great video should do: it perfectly represents their style so that it further defines it, but still leaves them mysterious, AND the video is a great piece on its own. I don’t think I’ve been so unnerved and so charmed at the same time. The only problem is..now they have a lot to live up to.
Oh yeah, and Thee Oh Sees video is brilliant, the Cults video is a small landmark (and kind of offensive too), the Adele video makes me ok with her selling 11 trillion albums, and the Jacuzzi Boys managed to inspire their female fans to make a video using only their vaginas…that might just be rock and roll. I warned you…Enjoy.
Also, at the end I threw in 3 of my favorite indie trailers of 2011. The last of which (Rainbow’s End) was described as “a remaking of the Muppet Movie in east Texas…as a documentary…with cock-fighting.” Just watch it.
NOTE: THE JACUZZI BOYS VIDEO WAS TAKEN DOWN (and replaced with something lame?) BUT IT WAS GIVEN ITS OWN SITE: http://jacuzzigals.com/ DO IT. SERIOUSLY.
Hello Friends and Internets. Here is this year’s Halloween mix. It’s a long one, and should be perfect for your Halloween evening activities. This year I have a couple of extra treats for you too. The first is a Halloween “story” or experiance of sorts. It was done by Gregg Turkington (better known as Neil Hamburger). It is his comedic take on relaxation cassettes and it is truly hilarious and terrifying. The link is below.
The other is a little ZOMBIE MOVIE that me and some friends made for the 24 hour film contest. Bear in mind that the entire thing was shot, written, edited, and scored in 24 hours. It’s not exactly Brunel but it’s fun enough to spend 5 minutes on. I hope everyone likes the music and other goodies. Have a great Halloween…
