Let’s take a moment to appreciate music videos. Maybe everyone doesn’t share my experience totally, but I don’t watch many anymore — but I used to. MTV and sadly even MTV2 is mostly about 30 minute shows that get more advertising dollars. I can instantly recall hundreds and could storyboard them for you. I guess iTunes is experimenting with some bonus video materials but these seem to be of the buy the album, get a free bonus video variety. One some old 40 gig harddrives I have a boatload of videos that I procured on Usenet that I haven’t bothered to connect and download with my new computer.
Today from Boing Boing:
Xeni Jardin: RES hosts another edition of their periodic digital screenings Tuesday night in LA. Included: the West Coast premiere of Chris Cunningham‘s new short film Rubber Johnny, as well as new music videos for Basement Jaxx, Quasimoto, Aesop Rock, Amon Tobin and more. Cunningham is a brilliant filmmaker.
I’m a huge Aesop Rock fan and I can’t wait to see what C.Cunningham’s video for him looks like.
