My mom sent me this video a week or two ago, and it is wonderful.
I found this over at Cinematical and wanted to share it with all my friends on the internets. Spacey’s ability to impersonate a variety of actors in every possible way is pretty stunning.
Yes, yes, a thousand times yes!
I should have posted this last week when Dooce first posted it on her blog. However, I didn’t, so here it is now. It’s an incredible fan made video for a great song.
WordPress makes it difficult to embed videos from sites that don’t offer a url option, so I need to post the link instead of the video itself, but trust me, it is worth watching. Watch it. Now. Do it. Go!
The opening credits for Mad Men are definitely my favorite on television. Short, sweet, and beautifully evocative of the main themes of the show.
Of course, because the entertainment industry is strongly against their products being advertised for free, thus giving them money for nothing, embedding of the video is disabled, so you can only watch it on YouTube. Buuuulllshiiiit. If you haven’t seen it and feel like watching it, or, if you have seen it and feel like watching it again, here is the YouTube link:
Your average music video promoting a movie is some terrible, over-produced song from the soundtrack performed a by boring, pop mart, ready made band in which said band uninterestingly lip-synchs to their song, after which an editor splices in random movie scenes. It’s basically one small step up from those terrible YouTube videos people make where they combine their favorite song with scenes from their favorite tv show.
This, however, is not your average music video promoting a movie.
I love it!
I couldn’t embed the video because wordpress is lacking in that department, however, following this link works just as well: 10/31 Project.
The real clip of the week is below, but as a bonus because I’ve been away for a full month I am also including another clip first. Emily showed it to me after she saw it on Dooce.com. It’s only 20 seconds long. Watch it. No, seriously, watch it.
The real clip of the week is in reference to news I heard yesterday. Apparently, the men of Spinal Tap (a.k.a The Folksmen) are going on tour for real, “Unwigged and Unplugged.” The clip is them playing a medley comprised of the music of both bands. Looks like the closest they are coming to here is Portland, which, if I could ever get tickets, would be just another great excuse to visit that wonderful city to the south.
