Awww, tumblr. Miss you, little guy.

tumblr used to be a good place to follow artists to get regular art, but now it's only an okay place. A lot of artists who used to post have bailed to insta, which sucks and I hate it (on my phone, have not tried non-mobile, don't care).

Vice interviews all those friends

I thought there was a post on the blue with the Pink Windmill Kids a year or two back but I can't seem to find it. Anyway, here's the full original music video

The juxtaposition of that video with "Mr. Brightside" made me listen to it in a completely new way and now all I can hear are the awesome guitar arpeggios with their fuzzy pathos.

I've never seen the Mr. Brightside video, so this is now canonical as far as I'm concerned.

The video always makes my day a little bit happier. And seeing the music it was always meant to be attached to makes it even better.

Many of the people involved re-enacted part of the video for charity here.

That was amazing and I want everyone I know to enjoy it as much as I did.

This is glorious, and it’s the first time I’ve ever noticed the audience. I love the little pinafore girl! And the lady in the black suit!

How... How do you do something this great and not continue a few more moments to the end of the chorus? What a monster.

You scared the shit out of me, I thought that was gonna say it wasn't old or a mashup!

The more I watch it the more I like it. Their timing is really tight, like TV tight.

That is great.

Mr Brightside is my song, I will literally abandon conversations mid-sentence to hit the dance floor when I hear it but I've always just bounced like a maniac, clearly I need to up my game.

I'm having Pink Windmill flashbacks. I'd forgotten all about it. This is awesome.

This is the best thing I have ever seen.
