Video Hookup

This one is kind of Electroqueer-heavy, but that’s just because EQ is so awesome.

01. Video for Matt Alber’s “The End of the World” — this guy, seriously, he can sing. I love this song, I have seen this video a million times. It’s romance with a capital Row.

02. If you have an hour and a half to watch a great film, clap your peepers upon “Sita Sings the Blues,” by Nina Paley. It’s augmented by the beautiful blues of Annette Hanshaw.

03. Via BoingBoing, I am fond of the chipper song “Happy Up Here” by Röyskopp. Space invaders!

04. Not to jump onto the literal video bandwagon, but I like the literal video for “Head Over Heels,” because when you don’t have to concentrate on the song, you notice how dippy the video actually is. I used to love those old-timey videos (heh), which weren’t slick and stupid and full of plasticked-up singers doing ripoffs of Janet Jackson dance sequences.

05. Largehearted Boy has John Darnielle doing “Woke Up New,” with backup singer Tobias Wolff. How cool is that.

06. EQ links to nifty Pet Shop Boys montage, done live at the Brit Awards (scroll past Brandon Flowers to the second video). Lady GaGa does a little cameo too. Oh, Lady G.

07. Via BoingBoing, the totally adorable Nano Song, about … what else … nanos. I still don’t really know what a nano is but that’s cool.

08. Also at BB, Chinese bluegrass. Awe. Some.

09. Stereogum has video for Ladytron’s “Tomorrow.” Brandon’s right, it does look a bit like Parrish, although to my knowledge he never painted flying jellyfish.

10. The Gum also has video for Malajube’s new song (well, it was new as of last month, okay, geez) called “Porté Disparu.” The band all gets murderated. It might be because of their poor sartorial choices.

11. Fabulist! has Amanda Palmer doing “Creep” on a ukelele. That woman can do anything, I swear. If they told me she was playing the tuba with her toes, I’d believe it.

12. EQ showcased Private doing a crazy video for “Killer on the Dancefloor.” I’m a fan of Private’s 80s sound, but I have no idea what any of his videos are about. Paging Killer, paging Killer, please wash your hair, repeat, please wash your hair.

13. There is also video at EQ for Lady GaGa’s “Love Game.” Lady G never fails to amaze with her trashy French-cut bodysuits and her awful lyrics (she got her a** squeezed by sexy Cupid. HAH), but when she belts it out in that voice, she rocks my socks.

14. At BoingBoing, Japanese Saturday Night Fever meets, uh, public breakdancing. It’s Peter, Bjorn, and John’s video for “Nothing To Worry About.”

15. And last but not least, snails slithering in time-lapse to the tune of “Go West.” My 4-year-old son’s favorite word is “snail.” I should probably show him this video, but then of course I would have to watch it a thousand times.

Video Hookup

This blog has been on unofficial hiatus due to my not wanting to write in it. Current events have brought me down, people, but I will perservere somehow. As will all of you, I assume, as long as none of you look at your 401Ks.

01. In non-video-related news, the Wall Street Journal has a very interesting article entitled “In Defense of Piracy.” Take cover, Lars Ulrich!! Interrobang!

02. Electroqueer has the new Lady Gaga video, “Beautiful Dirty Rich.” I seriously adore Lady Gaga (and so does Raj :D). She makes square shoulderpads and cowled unitards look goooood.

03. Although the song is awful, Rock Insider pointed out that the entertainment value of Katy Perry’s video for “Hot N Cold” is through the roof. Gosh, Katy, if you want someone that doesn’t change their mind all the time, how about marrying a man instead of a fifteen-year-old? I’m just saying, I think that groom is way below the age of consent (except in Utah! Back me up here, Jax :D).

04. At the Music Slut, a va-va-voomalicious Bishi rocks out to “Never Seen Your Face.”

05. Nelson, who’s guest blogging for Electroqueer, points the way to excellent Australian duo Lovers Electric. Check out Nelson’s great writeup and the video for “Honey.”

06. At Muzzle of Bees, a shaky shaky video of AA Bondy doing “You Got To Die” at ACL (just put it on and listen. Don’t watch the video, I think it might give you seizures.).

07. From the website “Got Medieval,” a link to a hilarious Robot Chicken sketch about King Arthur and Sir Mix-A-Lot: Table Is Round. “360 on the parameter — you know ‘hos like diameter.” This is actually something I didn’t know. And, though the rhyme would suffer, I think he means perimeter, because parameter is something else entirely. But hey, it’s all good.

08. You’ve all seen the Cadence Weapon video for “Real Estate,” yes? Man, I love me some dancing suit-weasels.

09. Via Stereogum, this Beck video for “Modern Guilt” will make you go, “awwwww,” or your money back.

10. Via Fabulist!, the Royal Ballet helps make the 1983 video for “Siamese Twins” by the Cure completely awesome.

Ain’t karma a bitch? We know Blair Waldorf is.

Bring it, girls and boys! Let there be catfighting and backstabbing, fake crying, real crying, and mostly current indie band name-dropping. Not to mention more Chuck Bass Witty One-Liners While Wearing Bow Ties.

01. Lady Gaga — Paparazzi
02. Jem — Crazy
03. Shwayze — Buzzin’ (Villains remix v.2)
04. Nelly Furtado — Afraid

That was a lot of songs with Zs in their titles. You can stream Motion City Soundtrack’s “Fell In Love Without You” right at their site.
