If things go well tonight

i don't think so.


November 16, 2009


-10 minutes of Robert Plant in 1970
-Avett Brothers short film created with all found footage
-the Dr. Dog video is kind of crappy quality, but the sound quality and their awesomeness makes up for it.
-just take a peek at the Bishop Allen Grrr... album cover. I think it's one of my faves of all time. Oh hang on, I'll just post it here. Save you some time:-Gwen Stefani circa her pink hair days
-Twofer: Sly and the Family Stone performing "Everyday People" AND "Dance to the Music"
-The Morning Benders acoustic at a Puma store. Don't get too excited, Puma like the shoes, not as in wild cat.
-THE creepiest Buddy Holly video you will EVER SEE. Moving still photographs. Bad idea.
-Primus' claymation version of "The Devil Went Down to Georgia". Not, as apparently most people search for it, "the Devil Went Down to GEORGE". I'm not even going to touch that one.
-Bettlejuice Day-O scene. It's the best part of the movie, admit it.
-the Courtney Cox version of "Dancing in the Dark". Wait, there are more versions? Yes. There's a live clip of the Boss pulling his mother on stage to dance with him. So he's dancing in the dark......with his mother?

I'll leave you with that, soupers. Tune in on Thursday at ten for our last show before Thanksgiving break!! Thank god for those crazy turkey chemicals that will make you fall asleep before 10 pm so you won't miss us too much.

-Donnie Darko montage for "Head Over Heals"
-check out the last video of Regina Spektor. seriously. do it.
-"Hold You in My Arms" by Ray LaMontagne is pretty good too.

T Vid List:

-The first four minutes of "The Nightmare Before Christmas"
-The Dirty Projectors discussing "Temecula Sunrise"
-"If you watch any of these watch this video..." of the week: "Tim, I Wish You Were a Girl"
-Ferris Bueller shaking up the Chi ("Twist and Shout")
-We played "Trouble" by Ray LaMontagne, but instead the video is his cover of Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy". Sue me. Compare it to the Kooks cover from last week's playlist.
-Squeeze- "Tempted". As KingofAllWhites says: Look at the hot sluts in the background!!!
-Pee Wee Herman gets into trouble at a biker bar, dances to "Tequila" (at the 2:30 mark) to win all the "dudes" over.
