Words Can Not Describe… One Of The Best Music Videos Ever!

Long before I saw Nancy Sinatra, “These Boots Were Made For Walking” struck a chord with me (and that was long before QT reintroduced her to the fanboys). I have seen many of her performances available on line now, but this one resonates in a particularly unique way. Lee Hazelwood was a treasure.

This song and performance is so innocent, and so not. It’s is joyful, yet corrupt. It speaks of a time when fun could be other things. Ah, they just don’t make them like they used to…

Born With A Bothered Mind

Happy Camper – Born With A Bothered Mind (featuring Bouke Zoete) from Job, Joris & Marieke on Vimeo.

Can’t let it get you down, though. I am a Happy Camper too. Particularly when I dig the music and the characters.

Thanks to CuriousityCounts for the tip!

Some Of The Reasons I Love The Internet

I can wake up, drink my coffee, and have great videos curated for me — videos that change how I feel about the world.

Marc Schiller hipped me to this fan created video for Grizzly Bear’s “Two Weeks” awhile back and I have been meaning to post it. How great is it that Gabe Askew made this for all of us?!!:

And before that I finally caught up on Girl Talk’s “Feed The Animals” . Culture changes so fast, thankfully. I love that this is 100% samples and the juxtaposition of stuff is a hoot. I had no idea which video to post but I picked this one in honor of Babe Ruth.

Another reason is you can find curators of interesting stuff and ideas. The forementioned Marc Schiller being one of them. Check this out (if you didn’t already when I twittered and blogged about it):

This site could not have been built without the help and insight of Michael Morgenstern. My thanks go out to him.

Help save indie film and give this guy a job in web design or film!
