Röyksopp – “I Had This Thing” Video

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

This was a fucking fucked up week. I got more joy, and solace, from the videos of one nameless genius doing Michael Jackson dance moves through the streets of Baltimore, my embattled hometown, than I did out of any music video. And while it doesn’t have a damn thing to do with music, as of… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

For about five minutes near the beginning of the week, I was thinking that I’d limit this week’s list to Christmas-themed videos, but then the only Christmas-themed videos I saw all week were the Killers clip below and this ridiculous Dropkick Murphys thing. It’s just as well, really, since some truly captivating videos did eventually… More »

The Killers – “I Feel It In My Bones” Video

The Killers have made an exceedingly, commendably goofy mini-tradition out of releasing Christmas songs, and we posted their latest, the mock-horror Santa story “I Feel It In My Bones,” yesterday. And now here’s the video, in which Santa is reinvisioned as a terrifying vengeful biker. Director Roboshobo has a whole hell of a lot of… More »
