My buddy Greg Cohen recently published this video from his candy shop, Lofty Pursuits, in Tallahassee, Florida. This video shows a montage of melting candy mixed with one or two of my own chiptune songs. The results are oddly satisfying.
Here is a collection of music videos that have made me smile lately. They don’t really have much in common other than they are kind of older and mostly hip hop. Since a few of them (like Dizzee’s “I Don’t Need A Reason” and Wiley’s “Numbers“) seem heavily inspired by gif culture, I’m also embedding The Idea Channel’s episode on that topic too.
After a hard day of internetting, I usually come across one or two particularly cute and uplifting videos. But this week I feel like everything I watch is driving my post-election anxieties rather than easing them.
To be clear, these videos aren’t gross or violent at all. In fact most of them are actually kind of funny, but I feel like each one of them has somehow tapped into some fear I never realized I had before. So grab some popcorn and enjoy this nightmare fuel.
