Best Of The Decade: Music Videos

If there’s one art form I love more than music, it’s music videos. Ok, I don’t love them more than music, but they’re probably #2. Maybe tied with books. But they’re amazing. Visual and aural stimuli simultaneously?! That’s like getting a BJ while you eat a hamburger. But I digress. That last list was a doozie. So this time ’round, I’m just gonna do a bunch of great videos that have come out in the past decade. This list won’t be quite as definitive, but definiteness is so 2009.

Here’s the first batch. Keep checking back for more.

Speaking of Cancelled…

…I was super excited to see …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead yesterday at the new Pool Parties in Williamsburg. Unfortunately, the nasty weather made them cancel the show right before the headliners played. I also missed the openers, Grupo Fantasmo and HEALTH (neither of which I’ve ever heard, but would like to) because of a prior engagement. This meant that I only saw one band: The Black Lips. Now, my first introduction to this band, was the retarded name and album art for their latest release. Then, after confiding this to a friend who liked the band, he played us some and I still wasn’t impressed. Then I saw them live yesterday. Let’s just say, Black Lips are one of the shittiest bands I’ve ever heard. They’re basically just a bunch of wannabe-outlaws still obsessed with being teenagers who play bluesy pop-punk. The music they played all sounded like reworked versions of Ramones, the Who, and/or White Stripes songs; all done in their faux-whiskey-chugging, 16-year-old-boner-inducing image. What a waste of time.

What if…

…Jack Black and Jack White formed a band called Jack Grey.
