Good Vids not nominated

The VMAs had good vids this year, but it doesn’t mean that those were the best out there. Those were the best out of the most popular vids. Sometimes most popular coincides with best as with Bad Romance, but that’s rare.

Here’s a few awesome vids from this year:

Broken Bells  The Ghost Inside   Christina Hendricks is in this vid,  that’s definitely a bonus.

Interpol Lights   Its hypnotic and actually rather deep so beware.

I like Nicki Minaj’s vid for Your Love, because of the Japanese theme and that she actually let herself get killed. I actually felt sorry for her. That something that never happens in music videos for me.  I also like Crossfire- Brandon Flowers, because there are ninjas and there’s role reversal.  He’s the one being saved instead of doing the saving.

What other videos would you add?

Modern Flashback

Nicki Minaj samples Annie Lennox No more I love yous in the the song Your Love and the vid features kunoichi, female ninja, being trained by a samurai.  Another girl falls for the same samurai and then there’s a huge fight. It features plenty of Japanese inspired clothing.  I think the vids really awesome and I like the song.

Neyo’s Beautiful Monster has a really good vid considering the song is only mostly ok.  It has a video gamish beat that’s really catchy but the lyrics and singing kind of throw me off. Well really just the way he says “Beautiful Monster” but I do like the song more or less.  For the Vid Neyo was definitely watching Smooth Criminal  and maybe a little anime since he does energy attacks.

Enrique Iglesias’  song I like it has a little Lionel Richie All Night Long (all night) in it.  And when I hear this song I just want to party and dance.

What do you think about these songs and vids?

The Apocalypse on Tour!

April 21, 2010 at 11:03 pm (music, pop culture, Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

The snowacalpse,  snowmeggedon, earthquakes, and that one particular volcano’ s probably got a lot of people thinking its the end of the world.  Movies like 2012 and the growing fear people in the US are showing towards the government aren’t helping matters.  At least we’re no longer having a financial meltdown and the economy’s supposedly getting better.  2010 has been particularly busy.

But I’m not going to talk about those things anymore. Lady Gaga’s Monster Ball tour and Rihanna’s Last Girl on Earth Tour both herald the end.  Not to start any new conspiracy theories.  There are enough of those flying around.  But does this pic of Gaga remind you of something quite scary or is it just me? She’s even got horns on that mask. Gaga had her little monster’s making apocalyptic videos for the first leg of her tour.  Here’s one particularly good one:

The second leg may not be the apocalypse anymore, but it still has monsters. I’m looking forward to the Monster Ball.

As for Rihanna her whole gig seems to be the end, last girl on earth. How could that not be the end.  And with songs like Fire Bomb, Hard, and Mad House you’d think the whole world’s gone to pieces and only crazy, tough people remain. I’m curious how she’s got her concert planned out. And with Ke$ha opening I know she’s going to have a wild crowd. Too bad Nicki Minaj’s not doing the tour that would have been even more crazy.  People are going to be hype coming out of the show.

Anyone going to the Monster Ball or Last Girl on Earth Tour? And what do you think about all this about the apocalypse?
