I’m not sure I could pimp Nicolai Dunger any harder without coming to your house, breaking all your CDs, and then pouring all of his music into a hole in your head, but I aim to try.  I’d never come across this video for ’I’d Rather Die‘ before last night (and the video quality is kinda meh), but it’s easily one of my all time favorite songs.  So you have to listen to it.

The techno improvers known as AV Club laid out the first trailer mash-up to really appeal to my complete film-nerdness.  Dig on 8 & 1/2 Mile

Here’s a shortie but goodie from ‘Buddha faves Dutch West, in which a family is most assuredly not saved by a rollout piano

The suckositude of the prequels aside, I’m a sucker for Darth Vader.  Boba’s cool and all, but DV rules the roost.  Dig on this Channel 101 winner from Aaron Yonda and Matt Sloan that gives us the trials and tribulations of Chad Vader: Day Shift Manager

2 Many Bugs

Waste some time with the deceptively clever 2 Many Bugs, in which you try to draw a line around like colored insects.  It may sound easy, but it’s not.

Kev Speck is a digital illustrator whose work I recognize from any number of Computer Arts Magazine covers.  Normally this style of work doesn’t appeal to me, but Speck’s use of color is what wins me over in the end.  Check it out.

Sometimes that cup o’ joe just doesn’t do the trick, so how about switching over to a

healthy alternative
? To whit, a workout that a coma patient could probably do that’s given added zest with a little instruction in conversational English from some brightly attired Japanese enthusiasts. 

Conversational, that is, if you’re talking to a cabbie right before you’re mugged on your way to a meeting before your big date with a cheapskate.

Actor and comedian Gabriel Sunday goes the creatively vindicative route in dealing with the rejection of Hollywood.  Minorly NSFW, but dammit, it’s funny.

I quite like this clip for The Spinto Band’s ’Mandy‘, from their 2005 release ‘Nice and Nicely Done’.  This song has been playing at my work, and it’s infectious enough that I don’t mind hearing it 15 times a day.

Jon Watts from Waverly did the directing of this clip, while Sean Donnelly headed up the rather well done stop motion animation.
