OT: Best music vid you've seen

OT: Best music vid you've seen

There's this band that's only partially based in my neck of the woods called Ramona Falls. They've clearly conspired with the devil vis a vis a soul sale or three in order to make the best music video I can ever recall seeing:

Granted, I'm an old-timer who grew up in the golden age of the music video (i.e. - back when MTV lived up to it's moniker), but I've never seen any video that so perfectly portrayed a song as this one. Every aspect of the video whether it be timing, lighting, color or intensity is perfectly meshed with the music to deliver a complete story beyond what music or art could do alone.

Even if you can't stand the music, I think there's a good chance you'll appreciate the video for delivering it so well.

If you've got a music video you appreciate above all others, drop a link and enlighten the rest of us.

4 months to go...

nothing much else to blog about this time of year so I thought I would open a thread about tattoos worn by other mgobloggers. What brings this to my mind is that I have 2 tatts that were given to me when I was 16 or so by a buddy. I was his guinnea pig and yes they turned out just that bad. I wish I could say I was drunk or something at the time but no, just that stupid. anyway 18 or so years later I have decided to cover them up and decided there was only one good way to cover them and that was with the split M over one of them and the winged helmet over the other. I will take some pix and attempt to use them as my avatar if I can. anyway who else out there has M tatts that they are willing to discuss.

OK is Eminem officially back or what? His guest verses on "Forever" and BoBs "Airplanes pt 2" are clearly the best verse on the song (even though Drake sucks) and his new freestyle "Despicable" is crazy.

We all know his last couple of albums before "Relapse" werent Eminem at his best but with Relapse, his latest freestyles and guest appearances...is it safe to say that Eminem is back?

So after a few beers and a couple bad hockey results, I stumbled back onto MGoBlog before hitting the sack. I was having a fun time posting until two fun, seemingly harmless threads about fast food and love songs were unceremoniously deleted. Did I miss something? What was so outrageous in both of these threads that all conversation had to be shut down, while at the same time a single poster can continue to post nothing more than "FIRE RODRIGUEZ", get negbanged viciously, then post another "FIRE RODRIGUEZ!!!!!" comment.

Can anybody shed some light on what happened? Am I alone on this one?
