Daddy-O: "Extended version is longer"

I bailed after 30 seconds of the short version. Not my thing, I guess.

I knew the original Shamu. And this is no Shamu.

Probably the greatest post ever made on Metafilter.

Can't. Stop. Watching.

Also: In the extended version, there's a keyboard riff that's lifted right out of Sister Ray -- which makes me even more inclined to bounce around the house to this music with tears of gratitude streaming down my face.

It's good. I hate it in the old-man-way I should but love it 'cause it makes me think the kids are all right.

I KNOW I ran into this sometime last summer and now I can't remember where and it's driving me nuts.

I like it, tho. I mean: sideways ponytail, y'all.

This is beautiful, and something that I will never be able to create.

WAIT! WTF?! They changed their name? They used to be called Natalie Portman's Shaved Head and this was totally my jam in 2008.

I love this song way too much, and I was pretty sure that I found it here on Metafilter... turns out that I did.

I thought it was pretty fuckin' fun.

5 PM on a Sunday is maybe not the right setting for this- but if I heard it in the right time and frame of mind I would go FUCKING NUTS

Sorry, Whelkish, but this is a fail for me. I kept wanting to smack their heads together Three Stooges style throughout.

Fun. The #1 YT comment on the extended version is "cocaine is a hell of a drug". But the vid just doesn't have the cocaine feel to me. I would guess X/LSD/Shrooms provided more inspiration than coke. Or maybe the commenter means the video is like cocaine. Fun, energetic, short acting and habituating.
