Music Video Thursday: "Hurt"

I'm in a dark mood tonight. It's been a rough day - I'm angry, I'm depressed, I'm worn out. I'm just going to let this song speak for itself:

Music Video Thursday: "Peaches"

Well, I had full intentions of setting up tonight's video with a "proof" that The Presidents Of The United States are in favor of copyright infringement, going into the whole "pirates and ninjas are natural enemies" silliness, and then pointing out that in the "Peaches" video, the Presidents kick some ninja butt, so therefore (by the "enemy-of-my-enemy-is-my-friend" way of thinking) they must be pro-pirate, and therefore have no problem with their video being posted to YouTube:

...but in the end, it seemed like so much work, with little payoff, and I'm tired, and so instead I just threw this together, which actually isn't too bad, except that I'm not entirely sure how to end it without it being awkward. Like this.

Music Video Thursday: "Vehicle"

I'm late, I'm late!

Thursday was the Ides of March (March 15th), and someone on Metafilter posted a link to this video. I'd never heard of the band The Ides of March before, but the song is great, the video is a beautiful mix of funky 70s fashion and space-race NASA footage, and it was the perfect day for it. Pity that I couldn't quite make it in time, but here it is, better late than never:

The vocalist, Jim Peterik, later went on to form the group Survivor, and wrote "Eye Of The Tiger" for Rocky III.

Music Video Thursday: "Institutionalized"

So I missed last week's Music Video Thursday, even though I managed to get one in while traveling even though I didn't think I was going to, because I had such a hard time getting back into my weekly routine, and was forgetting things all the time, and then tonight I was going to start early on my blog posting, but then my son threw up while I was putting the kids to bed, and I had to clean up, and then when they were all in bed and asleep, I wanted to put a Loverboy video from the '80s on for the Music Video Thursday tonight, but when I found it there was a big "Viacom has requested that this video be removed for copyright infringement", and it just seems like sometimes I try to do things, and it just don't turn out the way I wanted to and I get real frustrated, it's like, I take my time and I try real hard, but no matter what I do and no matter what I try it never works out, it's like I concentrate on it real hard, but it never works out...

...and all I wanted was a Pepsi, just one Pepsi... (lyrics, on the off chance that you couldn't make out every single clearly enunciated syllable)
