Video Hookup

“Tonight, we salute the silver anniversary of the Great Springfield Tire Yard Fire. Twenty-five years, and still burning strong!”
–Kent Brockman

LAist points out one early music video — Cab Calloway’s “St James Infirmary Blues,” animated in a Betty Boop video.

Via the Music Slut, video of Bishi. That woman can shred like no other — on a sitar (I think that’s a sitar! Doh). Heh.

Brooklynvegan has some videos from the very excellent Café Tacvba, plus tour dates.

From Culture Bully, Tori Amos on Jay Leno. I don’t revere Tori like I used to (that hair! oy vey!), but seeing her rock out on her two pianos brings back the old times.

And also from Chris, Sea Wolf on Jimmy Kimmel. *fans self*

Also via LAist, trailer video for the new film about Kurt Cobain. The film is called “About A Son,” and purports to be about Kurt in his own words. I’m sure there’s someone out there that hangs on every one.

From Idolator, the Hives give you more bang for your buck with “Tick Tick Boom.” It’s actually … kind of scary.

And from my high school via YANP, Win Butler does Violent Femmes while staring off into nowhere. But he still manages to rock — it must be the megaphones. Three, three, three for my headache, and four, four, four for my heartache.

Before I start, check out Blender Mag’s list of the best music cameos on the Simpsons. Maybe you agree and maybe not — but heck, it’s a ton of awesome clips (Barry White on Whacking Day, anyone?). YouTube proves its usefulness once again.

And now! Music. I was cleaning out some of my old folders and found some good stuff. Download it all … every single one is worth at least 30 seconds of your listening time.
