The Shoes’ “Time to Dance”

This might be one of the best music videos I’ve seen in ages. I think Jake Gyllenhaal plays an incredible version of a hipster hipster-hating Patrick Bateman here. I also really love the intercutting between banal day to day shit (getting a haircut, eating dinner, staring at birds) and murdering a bunch of kids in silly outfits with deliberate haircuts. Is there anything you don’t like about this video? I can’t think of a single thing. Beautifully shot, beautifully acted, beautifully cut. It’s amazing. The song is great too and the incredibly violent imagery juxtaposed to a song calling for dancing is fantastic.

Wonderful!

Diplo’s “Express Yourself” (feat. Nicky Da B)

Uh, some nutso grimey sissy bounce from Diplo? Yes, please. Do yourself a favor and assess all the asses. You will be better off for it. Bonus points for the Black Metal Diplo shirt. My only real disappointment with this track/video is that there is no Big Freedia cameo. Maybe next time.
