An old interview with the Brothers Chaps
, creators of Homestarrunner.com.
I was trying to find that odd Chinese music video that aoshi
and I found last Easter, but only ended up finding this: a hilarious lip-sync to the song
, but not the video itself. These guys are hilarious. It's almost as good as the actual commercial video clip that was looking for. They're so cute!
OOh! Found the real video for "Fen Kai Lu Xing"
. WIN. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, it's a cover of "Black Black Heart" by someone in China. If you know the original, you have to watch this video because it MAKES NO SENSE. Well, it probably makes sense with however they've translated the song, but the original lyrics can't possibly make any sense. But then I was talking to my sister, and she thought that since "black" doesn't have the same cultural meaning in China as it does here the translation might be fairly accurate. All the rhetorical questions in the English version (ie. "Why would you offer more?") could be translated straight over, just losing the mocking, bitter tone of the original. If you haven't heard the song, here's a vid for Yami no Matsuei
which isn't the zomg best vid ever made, but I like the song and I like Yami no Matsuei
... and it highlights the bitterly angsty tone of the song far better than David Usher's music video.
While we're using David Usher songs to make vids, a Lo/Ve vid to "My Way Out"
. As Lo/Ve vids go, it's mostly just them making out a whole lot, and I still like that one to that Avril Lavigne song better mostly because it's all cute and shmoopy where this one is all FRAUGHT with ANGST. I post the link because it fits the theme, I heart Logan, and I heart the song (which has a really fun music video
-- what I love about David Usher and his solo stuff is that the songs can be full of dark and mopey thoughts, but they always seem to have such a great time playing together that all the sadness in the songs is offset... it's like, "yeah, the world sucks, but we're all together so it's going to be okay").
Speaking of ABSOLUTE CRACK and people having way too much fun, it's all about Just Friends
. I need to stop watching the "Jamie Smiles" music video DVD special feature thing
. It probably makes more sense if you've seen the movie, but it's still a damn funny music video parody. xtinethepirate
: George Lucas on the Colbert Report
was slightly creepy. "George L." looked more than a little stunned and confused. But the lightsabre duel
was funny, even if George himself demonstrated a horrific lack of a sense of humour.
