The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Alyson Stoner, the adorable little white girl who danced in Missy Elliott’s videos for “Work It” and “Gossip Folks,” is a grown-up now. She’s been in a couple of Step Up moves, where she plays Camille, Moose’s girlfriend. (She’s also the sister’s voice on Phineas & Ferb.) And she just got a bunch of other… More »

Arcade Fire’s Win Butler Responds To Criticism Of “We Exist” Video

Arcade Fire’s video for pro-LGBT anthem “We Exist” featured a powerful performance from Andrew Garfield as a young man exploring and finding transcendence through his gender identity. It was our favorite video of the week. But some took issue with the casting of a cisgender actor in the role. Laura Jane Grace, the transgender singer… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

This week’s central battle came down, as so many do, to the eternal conflict between well-intentioned grand-scale storytelling and gleefully trashy bloodletting. It’s the Forrest Gump vs. Pulp Fiction of the 5 Best Videos Of The Week column! And just like in 1994, the middle-of-the-road epic won. Life is like a box of chocolates, etc. More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

In keeping with my newfound traditions of saying nice things about Gwar in the intros to these posts, the music-related video I enjoyed most this week was this, the YouTube commercial for Gwar’s Gwar-B-Q festival, which includes one of Dave Brockie’s final performances under all that latex. Gwar-B-Q goes down 8/16 in Richmond, and it… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

This is the week the music-video gods finally awoke from their slumber. I had to leave so much good stuff off the list this week: self-deprecating superstar send-ups, excitingly one-note punk-rock rave-ups, disturbing dystopian visions, intense adoreableness, experimental visions that didn’t quite work, the Lonely Island’s big return. The five I ended up with below… More »

Tame Impala – “Mind Mischief” Video (NSFW)

Big morning for new music videos! We already got new clips from the Knife and Grizzly Bear, and now here’s Tame Impala’s bug-out clip for the head-blown Lonerism riff-stomper “Mind Mischief.” The video, from director David Wilson, tells the story of a young private school boy having a moment with a ridiculously sexy stoner teacher.

The 9 Best Videos Of The Week

I don’t think there could be a Best Videos Of The Week column without a clip of someone spanking or spitting on someone else. I think 2011 may be the year of the S&M video, between Rihanna’s video, and last week‘s K-Holes clip, so expect lots more of that. Besides those clips we’ve got new… More »
