A few months ago, one of my friends linked to a music video by this artist, Janelle Monae. I was (and still am) greatly impressed by the vision presented in her videos, especially considering that Ms. Monae apparently has a significant amount of control over what the videos look like and how well they conform to the concept of her albums

Cut for bandwidth )

ETA I had a lengthy post here with analysis of each video, but LJ ate everything after the "Many Moons" embedded video and I can't remember exactly what I wrote. Suffice it to say that I'm impressed by the many and subtle influences and references in the music and videos. Rather than try to recreate, I'll just present the videos for your edification. Please feel free to let me know what you think about them

I'm not quite sure why, but lately I've been listening to more computer game music. Not just the originals, either, but remixes too.

Specifically, I'm listening to music from the Fallout series, something from one of the Dune games and a neat remix based on GLaDOS from Portal.

The Device Has Been Modified )

Got some other weirdness on my playlist too: Blue Oyster Cult, The Turtles, Rasputina, Cake, Metisse, Oingo Boingo, etc.

In related news, I need a music icon.

Edit: Speaking of Fallout, I didn't realize that the trailer for Fallout 3 was released this summer. I'm of mixed feelings about this because YAY! MORE FALLOUT, but frankly, I SUCK at FPS and I'm really annoyed that virtually every game I might like is following that style. Anyhoo, here's the trailer:

Ron Perlman for the win! )

Is it just me, or does Tickle Me Elmo Xtreme look like he's having a grand mal seizure?

So I've been surfing YouTube a lot today. I caught the entire run of the The Maxx animated series as well as the first part of the first episode of Spy Groove... ah, I miss that show.

Anyhoo, I also stumbled across this ad for the hottest new product:

First, a couple of YouTube vids:

'Hey Ya' cover by Matt Weddle of Obadiah Parker )

'Drifting' by Andy McKee )

Next, some new (to me, anyway) Lemon Demon songs:4 song links )
Next, a treat for National Drunk Irishmen St. Patrick's Day: 7 song links )
Finally, some random songs: 5 song links )
Note that all YSI links are temporary and will likely expire after a week (around March 6).

Why yes, I do have odd musical tastes. Why do you ask?
