Little Superstar

Diggin’ this little Bollywood breaker dude!

Daft Hands and other Punks

Nov 21

I’m amazed by the innovation of the video “Daft Hands.” Incredible with one can do with a Sharpie and some fast hands (and probably a ton of practice). The long intro of the song, “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” by the French duo Daft Punk, does a great job of building some amazing suspense.

See also the next step in the progression: Daft Bodies. And, of course another rip-off by some other ladies (sans robot costumes): Daft Bodies 2. Next, the male version of Daft Punk Harder Bodies. Gym rats may be interested in Daft Jazzercise. Lastly, I am a definite fan of the sarcasm of Daft Bros.

Seriously, don’t people have anything better to do?

Apache, baby!

Jul 31

This is for real. I repeat. This video is for real.

Tommy Seebach Mortensen was a Danish singer, composer, and producer from Copenhagen (circa 1979). I was speechless the first time I saw this video. My first thought was,”Wow, is THAT guy white.” Those pumping hips are absolutely terrifying. Those hips actually do lie…

In doing some research, I stumbled across some interesting stuff. Like any interesting internet meme, spoofs are pervasive. The original video is priceless, but following are some of my favorite spoof videos.

Don’t miss these beauties:

Total Eclispe of the Heart. Literally.

Jul 10

In my opinion the best-ever cover of Bonnie Taylor’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart” is by the world’s leading kitchen appliance rock group, Hurra Torpedo. Certainly an enthralling and inspired performance.

Dear dude-with-sledgehammer: Seriously though, pull your pants up.

BUT, my life was altered forever when friends Wendie Green & Mrs. Husband shared the unbelievable “Literal Eclipse of the Heart” video. Very well-produced jackassery. And, absolutely high-larious. Do not miss this video!

A few other “literal” videos:

Cold War Kids

Jun 11

If you dig Cold War Kids, then check out this interactive version of “I’ve Seen Enough.” It’s pretty slick, you can change tracks to remix your own version of the song. You can also mute band members and isolate tracks. Check it out over at MtvMusic.com.

Thru You

Mar 28

Kutiman mixes unrelated YouTube video clips edited together to make cohesive tracks that will funk you up.  I’m digging “The Mother of All Funk Chords” and “Babylon Band.” Check it out on Thru-you.com (and more of Kutiman’s work on MySpace).

On My iPod: Mr. Scruff, “Ninja Tuna”

Mar 21

I’m psyched about the newest Mr. Scruff album, “Ninja Tuna.” As always expected with Mr. Scruff, this funky/jazzy album will definitely get your foot tapping. I’m especially digging the video (featuring vocalist Alice Russell) for “The Music Takes Me Up.”

It’s Business Time

Mar 20

As a huge Flight of the Conchords fan, I never get tired of “Business Time.” Funny stuff from those hilarious Kiwis. Oh, and don’t miss “You’re So Beautiful.”

All The, Um, Single Ladies

Feb 11

I’ve already had more than enough of this song, when I ran into this horrifying video. It’s a car wreck of a performance — you just can’t turn away. Watch with caution…

In other news, don’t miss JT’s performance on SNL. Absolutely high-larious!
