Pointless ads from 1977!
That Indian "Robot" movie
Look, I know everyone loves the final action sequence with the snake made out of guys, but it's got some really good dance numbers as well. Heck, the one linked above is with the creator of the robot. The one with the robot itself is just mind-numbing.
This reminds me that I need my own robot.

Check out how a pro does it.
Oh. but they are all pigs
Old enough, but still fun. Drag acts are always funny.

Zoo Drill, which is a great name for a band.
"Iskandar" is Persian for "Alexander"
For some reason, I always see "Star Blazers" in my head when this track plays.
But then, I have some massive plots in my head.
Yeah. About that....
It's always sounded like a chase to me. A horrible horrible chase.
Who needs actors?
Hell, who needs sets? Still-photos are fine!

I can't say I've ever needed one.

I don't miss the old future at all.
Hey, would a fairy be wrong?
You should do this once a month
I have to say, he's not half bad on the slap-bass.
Research geek in me goes "Squeee!"

Think about that crazy rhythm....
What you're looking at there is an explanation of how this piece is performed. I only thought about it because of this.
And then I remembered this video. I only know about those guys because someone one sent me this very addictive track.
Now, while I'm typing all this, I hear another rhythm and think about typewriters and printers. Even animated printers can be cool.
This also makes me think about tap dance and that sound.
And I also think about the little musical numbers from Zatoichi and the rhythm of daily life.
But honestly, it reminds me of this.
So. Many. Remixes.
BONUS: Here's some Jim Henson and Ken Nordine. I'm feeling kinda Beat tonight.
What I do with myself
So I was watching this video and playing the track below and I was very pleased by the results. There's something very William Gibson about it.
Meat Beat Manifesto - "She's Unreal"
(Start the song, then the video. Mute the video.)
I do this: watch videos with the music off and play music. I'm tellin' ya, watch "The Backyardigans" and listen to old skool rap. YOUR LIFE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME.

This just made me happy
It's not quite Dogme 95, but it's close.
If it was easy, everyone would be doing it.

Mad props to Stephen Miller for finding this one.

So bad it's.....bad.

Remember what Matt said about The Worst Movie Ever Made and then ask yourself why they're religious. Or about trains.
Actually, thinking about it, an ellipsis should only be three dots.

I also suggest part two.
I can only do stuff like this in the middle of the night.
We used to play this game in high-school. Any object will do.

Events for the Superbowl have been insane, due to weather. The band for the above video, Deerhoof, was supposed to play with another group, Yann Tiersen. Yann got stuck in the snow and missed the gig. They still played some music, however.
I'm hoping that these two videos can be of some inspiration: nothing is too hard to do, and make good use of your time.

Happy Year of the Rabbit
I have no idea what they're talking about. It could be a deconstructionist argument a la Derrida (and in my mind, it is better if that is the case). I just like the animation.
I am pretty sure the voice for the rabbit is the same talent as the voice for the jackal in Маугли, but I'll have to check on that.
The Frito Bandito You Must Not Offend!
Some of his famous heists...
C'mon gang, sing along!
Aye, yii, yii, yiiii,

I like Frito’s Corn Chips,
I love them I do.
I want Frito’s Corn Chips,
I’ll get them from you.
Aye, yii, yii, yiiii,
Oh, I am the Frito Bandito.
Give me Frito Corn chips
And I’ll be your friend.
The Frito Bandito
You must not offend.
