Mmm hmm. Summer of '03.

Runs off to Google.... Aha! Here was the original thread: WTF is this? (at AI). Sure enough. July 03. I even posted in that thread. Ah, good memories.

Oy! Pathetic!

I genuinely don't enjoy videos but I still thing Talking Pictures are just a fad.

But one video I've seen really affected me profoundly, I was only vaguely familiar with Radiohead, (someone in one of my stores played The Bends a bit) so when I saw the video of Paranoid Android I wasn't sure who it was by, but I thought it was just so effective on every level, visually, musically, lyrically. Then it took me a while to see it again, and find out who it was. I've maybe seen it three times in my life.

But nowadays you can watch it evaday!

what a world.....

Two videos from Pulp:

Common People I always loved the bizarre looped dancing.

This Is Hardcore a.k.a. "Hey I want to college once but all they found were rats in my head." The last two minutes has some awesome choreography.

Okay, three videos from Pulp.

Disco 2000 Great style. Great storytelling. And I got a huge kick out of them using lyrics from their other songs for lines of dialogue.

Ancient thread is ancient, but new ways of music video awesome/weirdness have happened since.

Particularly the Korean Invasion. Now I'm not gonna post Gangnam Style since the entire planet knows it, although there is an interesting spinoff that didn't get anywhere near the views.

One of my favorites in the K-Pop genre is this Girls Generation one because it's like an acid trip. More visual styles and themes than I can even count, and every time it seems like the song has settled on one theme, BAM switcharoo.

The latest from the current iteration of that same group is also cool in the "what the heck is happening" kind of way.
