Not a fan of Les Miserables? Doesn’t matter. You’ll want to watch this:
It is a little slow to begin with. Amazing parts don’t start till around 1:37 or so… but its worth listening to the entire thing.
So the following two music videos are both awesome in music and connected in narrative.
I like mixed media. Music has always been hit or miss with me. For example Dark Side of the Moon put to Wizard of Oz just wasn’t that enjoyable for me as an experience. This video however does pretty good and I imagine audiophiles will like it even better. It is neat that the music was inspired by one of my favorite comics, Dresden Codak, which probably helps my appreciation. If you’re interested in the comic itself you can find it here (might also make it easier to read a little).
Too many internet memes! But man would I love to get that beginning melody as an MP3.
Okay so this video definitely contains adult content.
And wow. Best visual depicting of a human’s reaction to visualizing a Great Old One ever. Also what was going on in that woman’s short, seriously?
This is an actual music video for the music you hear in the background. The music is by someone called DyE and the song’s name is Fantasy.
So some friends of mine who are way more up to hip on the whole music scene (if it’s even still called a scene?) was talking about dubstep the other day, how they love and/or hated and/or lovated it. I really had no idea what they were talking about so what did I do? Well nothing, but I was watching videos on YouTube and saw “Dubstep Guns’ as one of the offered videos, so now I’ve heard my first dubstep. Little did I know Dubstep was made using guns and martial arts moves!
Baby Got Books

Oh, my, god. Becky, look at her book.
It is so big. You could, like,
Fend off a rabid jaguar.
But, you know, who even reads those genres?
She only wants dragons and swords.
It’s not like that’s real literature, right?
I mean, her book, is just so big.
I can’t believe it’s just so thick, it’s like
Swollen, I mean – wow. Look!
It’s just so … fat.
I like big books and I cannot lie.
You other readers can’t deny
That when a kid walks in with The Name of the Wind
Like a hardbound brick of win.
Wanna swipe that thing
Cause you see that boy is speeding
Right through the book he’s reading.
I’m hooked and I can’t stop pleading.
Wanna curl up with that for ages,
All thousand pages.
Reviewers tried to warn me.
But with that plot you hooked
Me like Bradley.
Ooh, crack that fat spine.
You know I wanna make you mine.
This book is stella ’cause it ain’t some quick novella.
No time for writers
Whose work is much slighter.
One-shot plot, over quicker than a nickel slot.
I’m tired of magazines,
Tellin’ stories with just three scenes.
Take a fantasy fan and ask ’em if
They’d rather read Tolkien, so…
Readers (yeah), readers (yeah)
Go get Martin’s brand new book (hell yeah).
Well read it, read it, read it, read it, read that hefty book.
(Bulging shelves with the epic plotlines)
Yes. Seriously. OK Go, the band who makes awesomely fun music videos for us to watch, and the Muppets, who make awesome comedy videos for us to watch, make a comedy music video for us to watch. And now that you’ve just watched the trailer for it…. you can watch the video! Yaaaaaaay (With flailing arms)!
Her name is Meghan Tonjes and she has an amazing voice, one album out, and one album on preorder. She hosts a YouTube channel where she does request videos like above and performs her own music. She actually does a better job of introducing herself in this video.
