Fucking Music Videos, YEAH.
  • Dominos guy gets actual screentime, it's pretty rad.
  • it's a pretty bad video overall though, especially when this is 100% superior in every way.
  • Yeah that Little Dragon video is tits.
  • Is that Goatse?
  • All goatse all the time.

    TND Forums™
  • remember when broprah got drunk and goatse'd us.
  • I remember when broprah would get drunk and leave us deep drunk posts. Those were the days.
  • @hedgeway Oh man those posts were amazing.
  • not every day Death Grips posts a 13-minute video.
  • MC Ride - THE visual artist.
  • never has water dripping from clothing been so frightening.
  • That's some artsy shit right there.
  • A music video that's mostly silence--the boys still got it.
  • This has to be the Crispin Glover collaboration, either that or they've been watching all the David Lynch movies.
  • Art does not need a gallery, but I could see that running in a gallery with a just brutal assaulting sound system.
  • this made the song in question all the more chilling to me. Just watching MC Ride scream in agony at the end....jesus christ I love this video.
  • RIP my drunkposts. I wish somebody had them somewhere, those were the days. I still have no regrets about that goatass.

    on topic:
  • Chad VanGaalen makes some weird ass videos.

  • Dinosaur Jr. has the best music videos. I'm so confused at this and I think it's hilarious.

  • Kendrick Lamar has officially made it.
  • as much as I love The Lonely Island, that wasn't that funny :-/ the beat is hella catchy though, for what it's worth
  • +1 on lack of funny
  • but lol at kendrick lamar being apart of it
  • Saunas being filled with piranhas made me laugh for a solid 10 minutes, but overall I agree.
  • Eh, I never found Lonely Island funny, but their videos are always enjoyable to watch.
  • Agreed. Though "I'm on a Boat" is still pretty sweet. And having grown up during Color Me Badd, Dick in a Box kept me entertained a lot. Actually the "No Questions"/NWA one with Portman was pretty good too. And I like "to the ground"... so scratch that. They're pretty funny 50% of the time, which has to be an SNL record.
  • People don't often realize this, but "Dream Girl" is their best song.

  • if this ain't funny to you, you don't have a pulse
  • I also enjoy dick jokes and making fun of fanfiction.

  • I always found more of the appeal of of Lonely Island about 50/50, half of the appeal in their lyrics/subject matter/humour and the other half in their production.

    The production to We're Back, Lazy Sunday, Santana DVX, Trouble on Dookie Island have some really sweet jazzy beats which sometimes I feel kinda get wasted on these guys, but they sound good on the production even if they rap for the lulz so to speak, so I forgive them somewhat.
  • Motherlover is definitely my favourite of theirs!
  • Sweet lyrics on Dream Girl there, however some of the best lyrics are in this:



  • damn, has me goin back to my days of highschool. There were some fine as hell teachers there.
  • I don't think this Knife track needed to be 10 minutes long, but at least the video is European enough.

  • so I dunno how I'm just watching this given it came out over half a year ago, but given the LaBeouf-dong, I really hope I'm not the only person that thought this was breathtakingly beautiful
  • LaBeouf-dong is pretty chill. It's up there with one-armed Elijah Wood.

  • I can only hope to be treated to even more LaBeouf-dong in the upcoming Lars von Trier flick.
  • Oh shit, I forgot he was doing that. Apparently its one of his unsimulated sex flicks. Should be baller
  • I had no idea LaBeouf was gonna be in that until now, but that's cool. I still need to watch a Lars von Trier movie. I have Dogville, Dancer in the Dark, and Melancholia all queued up.
  • Melancholia is probably the best it if those IMO, but alot off people would make the case for Dogville. Speaking off the dude I've been meaning to watch The Idiots but haven't found a good download for it
  • now would be a good time for everyone to watch Antichrist
  • Antichrist is great, and infinitely hard to watch. I still bought the Criterion BluRay, though.

    I like Melancholia, too.
  • Dogville (and Manderlay) are the more impressive movies. However it's criminal Kirsten Dunst did not win awards for Melancholia.

    Antichrist is beautifully shot but somewhat horrifically misogynistic. That said i do recall trying to defend it somewhat to my wife (a women's studies minor) after seeing it the first time.

    I haven't seen Dancer since its release and that would have been right around the time I started paying attention to non-Hollywood film. I should revisit.
  • Fuck that dogme 95 bullshit
  • @Clyde No, he means that since Kevin Smith's Dogma, any and all of von Trier's attempts to explore the human condition have seemed trite in comparison.
  • well I'm of the opinion that Dogma is better than most films, so you can sorta say I agree....
  • the problem with Dogme 95 is that it forces minimalism and thus tries to force creativity, and creativity and art don't work that way bitches.
  • (and don't think I'm hatin' on minimalism, but like all elements that go into making great art, it needs to come naturally)
  • Dogma best jesus movie, all years.
  • I'm sure some good art came out of Dogme 95, but I'm just against the strictness and rigidity of it, from a personal standpoint. (and it's not like Lars Von Trier or Harmony Korine didn't take liberties and exceptions when it came to the rules anyway)
  • @Clyde Establishing limits to foster creativity isn't "forcing" anything. If anything, it usually lubricates the process of creating something. I mean, I'm not crazy about formalism, but you have to put a story in a box before you can call it a story, and the box can be as much of a choice as the story.
  • Also, I don't feel like writing an essay about this, but calling Antichrist "horrifically misogynistic" is a very reductive reading of it.
  • Just Because a Film Depicts Clitoral Mutilation Doesn't Automatically Mean It's Misogynistic: An Analysis of Gender Roles in the Films of Lars Von Trier, A Treatise by Steve Jones

    For real though, I agree with Steve.
  • I prefer to include more alliteration in my essay titles, but yes.
  • I'd have to rewatch it to discuss in detail, it's been a few years and I saw it in a week I watched 20+ other movies. I believe there exists a just argument for that position, but damned if ill remember it.

    I think it stemmed from the self hatred shit over the death. To e fair, defoe's character is very controlling. I remember there being a very real dynamic portrayed between the two, but I think with further discussion with my wife it became obvious the film was slanted heavily from a male perspective.

    Couple that with themes from Manderlay and it felt like a pattern.

    Anyhoo, if it comes up on a movie of the week club thing, I'll watch it again and make notes. :p


  • Livestream, anyone?
  • < 1AM EST thing, sure.
  • I'm glad Atoms for Peace realized that the best song on the album deserved another video of Thom Yorke dancing.

  • This is actually adorable??? I'm glad Thom Yorke is taking his dancing to the next level with a duet. It's only a matter of time before he releases a video with legions of people dancing like this.

    This is the new style. So You Think You Can Dance will catch on soon.

    Seriously, I love that video.
  • Oh my goodness... Eric Wareheim directing Ray Wise in a Beach House video.

  • I might as well just get back in bed because my day was completely unprepared for that
  • @Danny was gonna post that. Whether you like Beach House or not, that was unbelievably epic
  • I like the "Crash Bandicoot soundtrack" direction that The Knife are going towards.

  • well that's weird.
  • @Kyle The Knife or the Beach House vid?


  • this is a brilliant music video, the music is so so, but damn this looks great.
  • That video is nuts.
  • that video was removed because of nudity but it doesn't have any.

    YouTube sucks sometimes.
  • not a music video but I do believe that this is where the idea of BasedGod began to form

    #BasedWonder

  • Pfft, like I'm gonna click a thing.
  • lol, I thought it would embed automatically.
  • new tyler video for "Ifhy"
  • those techno viking synths are actually growing on me.
  • So how about that new Flaming Lips music video?
  • Edit: FOR THE LOVE GOD NSFW

  • I love how even Fantano had no idea what the heck was going on, judging by his comments
  • oh god this video is terrifying.

    JOHNS – NO ONE'S WATCHING from AnnA on Vimeo.

  • Super NSFW -
  • I thought it was pretty ingenious.
  • mi!iiii!111IiiiIIII1ii!!!ii!iIinnnnndd

    fuck.
  • porn's geetting too weird nowadays.
  • This is one of the most amazing music videos I've ever seen, worthy to shed some tears..

  • That's one of my favorite JT songs.

    Can he get away with the nudity since his video is technically VEVO?
  • ya that song is still great.
  • NSFW

    local band. love this one.

  • the nudity in the new JT video is pretty tasteful, and more importantly it fits the lyrical content of the song.
  • @Josh that song is pretty cool, it's a blatant Pains rip off but a really catchy one.
  • yeah, they sound a TON like Pobpat, but I don't especially mind. Great songwriitng.
  • Mr. Alexander Wang
