I liked it, but am not sure it was worth the seizure it indiced.

Whoah. Now I'm having an acid flashback. THIS IS GOING TO BE A BAD ONE!

i thought the video was amusing/entertaining/interesting on it's own merits. i don't think that the fact that it is promoting a new album by a popular musician is all that interesting...

sorry it wasn't worth the click for you...

Just a friendly thought geos , if you post something that takes this long to download (for me about 5 minutes) some background would be nice, in case I don't enjoy . . . what ever this is I'm look at. Which I don't really, sorry to say. But if you gave some background it would help me and others make a judgement call about clicking. Thanks.

Too bad Rihanna's "Umbrella" has already taken up residence as the hot summer jam for 2007 (at least in NYC), because "BOYZ" really is the greater and more deserving track.

...brella...brella...brella...Eh. Eh. Eh...

Good fun song, cracking video.

It took an age to load for me too, so I gave and went with YouTube.

God, music discussions on MetaFilter make me want to scream.

This reminded me of the intro sequence of In Living Color.

In Living Color

I can't tell if your memory is harsher or more charitable than mine, Rhomboid.

Nah, that's the season 5 intro. I mean the original one, season 1 or 2.

She is hot. Thanks. The only mash=up I ever play is URAQT + Meeting In The Ladies Room.

Is this that London 2112 promo video that killed 21 epileptics?

Well if the background info had been included then it would have been a double. See hermitosis above.

You can get a pretty good idea of what the video is about in just a few seconds of downloading.

I know exactly what you mean Rhomboid, don't worry.

I'll hold out for the SA version that includes political figures breakdancing with sparkly, oscillating line art.

Awesome track. Could do with a re-edit.

That beat is a 'baltimore club' breakbeat, btw.

OH! This is produced by Switch. No wonder it's awesome.

I love that she's channeling Salt n Peppa, more that usual, too.

Which, having watched what I just watched, is going to feature Sly Stone and Bootsy Collins.

Here's another video that probably doesn't need a fpp.
posted by stavrogin at 12:32 PM on June 16, 2007


Well, either that was paperrad or someone who wants to be paperrad.

Also A Tribe Called Quest

I liked it! Makes me feel summery. Want to pop it in the CD player and drive to the beach.

[Also, GOD I love that prairie dog/gopher thing. I've had it saved on my computer for a week now and at least once a day I crack it open and giggle like a little girl.]
posted by LeeJay at 12:52 PM on June 16, 2007


That was the first time I had seen the gopher vid. I am ashamed at how hard I just laughed. O god that was painful even. That gopher needs his own fpp.

great chune. and thanks for the baltimore club reminder, i hadn't noticed that yet.
posted by eustatic at 1:26 PM on June 16, 2007


You know I was like a millimeter away from a single link two word title with no explanation FPP called HORROR BEAVER but backed away at the last second.

I could have beefed it up with these, though:

Zhe goggles...ZHEY DO NOTHING!!!

Curses!

And ...wtf?

I smell varmint poontang, and the only good varmint poontang is dead varmint poontang, I think.

OK, The Straightener, I was holding it together until I got the Curses!gopher and I just totally lost it. It was the monocle flying off. I mean COME ON. Slays me!
