Also, it's Saturday morning here, so I forgot to mention that the Puppetry link is probably NSFW.

Very cool.

Wow, thanks for exposing me to a new medium. I really like "Incubus"

Excellent clips, carsonb, great effects. Glad I saw the second one in the morning and not before bed time! Thanks.

I usually can't watch more than 30 seconds of a music video, but "OK" was OK!

the second one was pretty brilliant.

Genius. Thanks.

Technically interesting but the content is hackneyed, a man overpowers a woman. Hardly "genius". I find the theme offensive but obviously it's endlessly fascinating to some.

Incubus (demon)

The creepiest part for me—the part that made me think twice about posting it—was the end.

Faboo. I remember seeing that Franz Ferdinand video a while back with the pseudo-cutouts and thinking it was sort of clever thing, but these are much closer to the heart of what was so appealing. The Shitdisco bit is super goddam clever—jealous-I-didn't-think-of-that clever, really—but the Incubus work is just plain genuine craft.

That, and Shitdisco is a great name.

Funny!

I second cortex. Damn, I wish I could have thought of that. The song itself wasn't that good IMO, but the video makes it bearable.

Can't say I like the name Shitdisco but it definitely sticks with you......or on you. *ewwww*

a man overpowers a woman. Hardly "genius".

The "genius" is in the "technique", not the "subject matter". The ending did make it creepy and not "hackneyed".

Maybe some could have taken the second link better if it had featured a succubus - I don't know (I somehow doubt it).

I really liked and appreciated the craft of the thing(s).

Hilarious but creepy.
