Music Video Of The Day: Straight From The Bottle by Terror Jr. (2019, dir by Chris Simmons)

I like this video.  It has kind of a desolate feel to it but there’s also a very snarky sense of humor lurking underneath all of the loneliness.  This video reminds me of when I would visit my cousins in Arkansas over the summer and we’d inevitably end up hanging out around an abandoned house.  There’s a surprisingly large amount of abandoned houses in Arkansas, for some reason.

(Seriously, if you’re not even thinking about shooting your amateur horror film in Arkansas, you’re missing out on some very creepy scenery!)


Music Video Of The Day: On the Radio by Regina Spektor (2006, dir by Adam Levite)

I don’t have a lot to say about this video.  I just like it.  It’s a good video.  Stewart Moncure shared it during Saturday’s #ILikeToWatch live tweet and I was reminded of how much I’ve always liked this song and this video.  Watching it, I’m reminded of when I briefly wanted to be a teacher.  I wouldn’t have taught music, though.  I can’t carry a tune to save my life.  Instead, I would have taught …. well, Drama is kind of the obvious choice but if I could teach anything, I’d probably teach history.  I mean, we could solve so many of our problems today if people actually knew more about history than what they see on twitter or read on Wikipedia.  Oh well.

Anyway, enjoy!

Music Video of the Day: Code Zero by French 79 (2019, dir by Vincent Desrousseaux)

I like today’s music video of the day because it’s simple but atmospheric.  This video really is the dream of being an artist.  Spend your afternoon creating and editing and making your imagination come to life.  And, in between creating, watch a movie.  That was what I always dreamed my life would be like when I became an adult and …. well, I don’t really feel like an adult but still, I’ve got a nice little building in the back yard that I use as a personal office, I spend a lot of time writing, and I’ve always got a movie playing in the background.  It’s a good life.
