mouvez le voux II

didn't want to go a full week without posting something otherwise, so here's a collection of rando youtube movies to emulsify the page before i hit u up with the sunday mix, which is poppin.

first we have the gus van sant directed video for dee-lite's song, runaway, a song which gets some play on the weekly radio show i have the dubious honor of guesting on, RELATIVELY BEYOND THE RADIO hosted by her realness of concealness. the show is every thursday 1-3pm and i sincerely hope u turn your tuners to FM 103.3 at that time or direct your web browser to the VFR website to stream at these times.



this video is dope because of towa tei's dope bowlcut, and the kitschy use of chromakey.

vor my upcoming album tentatively titels "barnyard animals", one of my key artistic inspirations has been the music part of the SNES game mario paint, which is like midi sing along song composing, and produces some beautifully simplistic reductions such as this rendition of some sonic the hedgehog music:



my favorite noise this software makes is the dog barking, which unfortunately is not featured in this clip. u can see it up there in the toolbar right behind where mario is bouncing up and down.

OK if found a sick transposition of the punchout music which features both the dog and cat noises which are to be central in my aesthetics in my current work:



MEOW MEOW the goose makes a pretty great orchestra hit.

moving along, here are a few more earlyish 1990's music videos ive come across on you tube, enjoy:

Corona- I Don't Wanna Be A Star (1996)



E-Zee Posse & MC Kinky - Everything Starts With An "E" (1990)



E-Zee Posse & MC Kinky - Everything Starts With An "E" ('96 Remix)



Reel 2 Real - Raise Your Hands (1994)



Reel 2 Real - Conway (1995)



C & C Music Factory - Do You Wanna Get Funky (1994)



Why can't music and fashion be this ridiculous and amazing again? I suppose that's where we're headed, but its just not as unabashed as before. someone needs to invent a new wonderdrug. or not.
