A music video I hate

Oh, and while I’m on the subject of music videos, I thought I would include a music video that I simply hated. Here:

I was going to write a long diatribe about it, but a random youtube reply summed up my feelings quite well:

QUESTION: when you see a music video of a rapper throwing handfuls of cash, putting on eight gold chains, and rapping about how rich he is, which of these two assumptions do you make? 1) this is a legitimate and insightful artist that works tirelessly to entertain his fans or 2) this person has gone to great lengths to literally insult his viewers by bragging about how superior he is to his viewers and how absurd it is that they pay him insurmountable amounts of money to make a career out of it.

Well said.

hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. . .

One of my favorite music videos

This is one of my favorite music videos:

It’s not what this video overtly said that got me, it’s in what this video didn’t say. This music video respects the intelligence of the viewer by making him reach a little to connect the dots. I also like the slow, methodoligcal, meditative pace of the video, it makes you feel aware of time itself. In a way, it reminds me of the periods in my life when I was “in the moment” and fully aware of my environment. The video was¬†skillfully¬†directed, the song itself was very good, and the video made a point.

Most people would dismiss the video as being “boring and slow”, but I disagree. I think it’s beautiful.
