A consistanly great source of inspiration for me comes from music videos. I’m not talking about your glitzy, by-the-book, lowest commen denominator videos rife with "bitchez and hoez" or the newest incarnation of the guys who never really got over how amaaazing Ten was or even (gasp!) the newest batch of prepubescent temptresses humping everything within a 30 foot radius. I know you’re smarter than that, loyal readers.
The following videos are those that have been shown recently on a show on MTV2 Sunday nights called Subterranean. It’s been of my favorite shows since the end of high school, and not just because I harbor a borderline fanatical crush on the host, Jim Shearer. I highly suggest trying to watch them on an actual TV, but for now, this will have to do:
Cansei de Ser Sexy – Let’s Make Love and Listen to Death from Above (scroll down for the video)
The Rapture – Get Myself into It (very simple, but funnier each time – they are the guest next week)
Wolf Parade – I’ll Believe in Anything (I’d rather watch this than Marie AntoiNOT good)
Regina Spektor – Samson (I’m a sucker for animation like this)
(A while back I mentioned wanting to see the Tim Burton created Killers video. Well, I saw it, and it kind of sucks.)
