Addicted: Best Video Part I

4 01 2010

I must confess that I’ve addicted to music video for such a long time.
I even used to watch music television for days and write down all titles, album titles, director’s names on my little ‘nerd’book.
Here are some videos that I really like. It’s changed the way I think about art as well…I think.

The Prodigy – Smack My Bitch Up.
Album: The Fat Of The Land (1997)
Directed by Jonas Åkerlund

This is too great to be banned!

Portishead – Only You
Album: Dummy (1994)
Directed by Chris Cunningham

Scarily Beautiful. Stunning Visual.

The Chemical Brothers – Let Forever Be
Album: Surrender (1999)
Directed by Michel Gondry

Genius Idea!

Bjork – Cocoon
Album: Vespertine (2001)
Directed by Eiko Ishioka

So many videos to choose from this awesome video queen. She’s the one who makes video that I can 100% called ‘art’.

Fiona Apple – Criminal
Album: Tidal (1996)
Directed by Mark Romanek

At the very first time I saw this video, I knew that this girl is for real. And she really is. And she’s become my no.1 favorite artist since then.





Santo’Gold’ Rush

22 11 2008

I’ve discovered this cool lady a couple years ago, since ‘myspace’ booming era.
I first heard her song ‘Creator’ and I immediately put her song on my profile.
By that time, not so many people know this girl.
But now she’s getting all the fame she deserves.
Great music kicks ass!!!

This young mama rocks!

Here’s the video, yo!
Love those backup dancers….cool moves! I’ll try to copy that next time I go clubbing 😉





Live Fast And Die Young

8 06 2008

Andrew Vanwyngarden of MGMT

I love his last name and so his music.
Here’s the lyric of one my favorite songs…for now.

Time To Pretend

I’m feeling rough, I’m feeling raw, I’m in the prime of my life.
Let’s make some music, make some money, find some models for wives.
I’ll move to Paris, shoot some heroin, and fuck with the stars.
You man the island and the cocaine and the elegant cars.

This is our decision, to live fast and die young.
We’ve got the vision, now let’s have some fun.
Yeah, it’s overwhelming, but what else can we do.
Get jobs in offices, and wake up for the morning commute.

Forget about our mothers and our friends
We’re fated to pretend
To pretend
We’re fated to pretend
To pretend

I’ll miss the playgrounds and the animals and digging up worms
I’ll miss the comfort of my mother and the weight of the world
I’ll miss my sister, miss my father, miss my dog and my home
Yeah, I’ll miss the boredem and the freedom and the time spent alone.

There’s really nothing, nothing we can do
Love must be forgotten, life can always start up anew.
The models will have children, we’ll get a divorce
We’ll find some more models, everything must run it’s course.

We’ll choke on our vomit and that will be the end
We were fated to pretend
To pretend
We’re fated to pretend
To pretend

And here’s the video

And this is their second video “Electric Feel”. There’s an interactive edition of this video which you can alter the background anyway you like. There are 625 to the 229th power different ways the video can turn out. Download the interactive video at: whoismgmt.com/efvideo/

And here’s the live version of Electric Feel on MTV2….Oh my…I’m in Looooooooove!
