OK Go | This Too Shall Pass

There are two words for this video.  “Amazing” and “Fuckin-incredolicious.”  One of those words was recently made up by an anonymous author, but still holds true.  In this tribute to Rube Goldberg, the members of OK Go play a trivial role amidst the seemingly endless mechanisms timed to their single, “This Too Shall Pass.” Continue Reading

Holy naked.  I must forewarn that this is NSFW.  Not that blurs are not employed, but I doubt if your uber-conservative boss will appreciate the humor. Continue Reading

For a band consisting of 20-somethings, The xx appear very calm, cool, and calculated.  Exemplified by a simple, yet soulful sound, they’ve left tracks on both sides of the pond, selling out shows and leaving audiences breathless. Continue Reading

As a few people know already, this video has quite a bit of sentimental value.  The official video of 2:30 am for a few months in 2007, I must have subjected my friends to this musical menagerie over 100 times.  The fun-loving spirit of The Thermals is infectious and I can’t help it if their videos capture that same essence.  It is impossible to witness them live or taped and not feel as though your life is instantaneously changing for the better.

Before I witnessed this video, I was actually told that is was, quote, the weirdest ever, unquote.  Despite the forewarning, I managed to overlook the video on my Youtube quest.  So estranged, I took the boy band theme as a certain sign that this was, in fact, a silly fan video.  Wrong.  Dead Wrong.

The title is a bit unfair considering Mr. Murphy rants as much about drunk boys as much as the lush-like ladies, but the rowdy chorus keeps bringing us back to the female contingent.  As easy as it is to swept up in the driving bass line, the listener (and his sense of humor) will be rewarded for listening to the lyrics.  The following are my choices for quotable quotes.  Feel free to listen to all of the song’s lyrics and match them to your favorite memories from four (or more) years of college.

You know that (silly) hand motion that rappers do, bending their arm 90 degrees at the elbow and repeatedly pushing their palm downwards, possibly mimicking tha gangsta bounce of a six-fo Impala…

…well, this song launches me into that motion every time.  Often times I forego the bent elbow and use my entire upper body to really “sell” it.  Not sure what “it” is, but it symbolizes unbridled confidence and It. Is.  Pricey. Continue Reading
