Living a life of small adventures
... punctuated by moments of unpredictable chaos and grand exploits
An excuse...

Well, I was going to talk about my first week at school, but it was just going to be an excuse so I could post what is simultaneously one of the best and worst ever music videos of all time (in my humble opinion). Apparently I'm a little late to the game on these folks, so please bear with me (I'm a little busy and can miss stuff sometimes, heh). So rather than beat around the bush... I present the infinite awesomeness of Muse's "Knights Of Cydonia" song and video.

I had seen it once before at St. Hubert (Québecois chicken restaurant chain) and thought I'd remember the name, but I didn't look it up soon enough. I saw it again yesterday and looked it up this time. I knew I had heard their name before ... and I couldn't remember why until I rummaged a bit more on youtube and realized they were the band that had done Supermassive Black Hole (which I really liked, but never followed up with the band apparently). But I first ran across this video, which totally gives me goosebumps... both the music and the video itself... wow!

It was at that point that I realized I had finally tuned into something wonderful (that many, many others had already figured out before I did, heh). And then there was this... perhaps problematic, but it demonstrated to me that this band wasn't afraid of trying new things and not repeating themselves. Maybe the dubstep isn't the best I've heard, but tied with the epic backing music, it makes for something new and that more than makes up for missing somewhere else :). Hard to believe it's the same band even, amazing!

Okay... and what I consider to be an actual work of (somewhat tongue in cheek perhaps) art... DUBSTEP FOR THE DEAF!!! Even if you can hear, it's a total brain fuck...

Still need more? I think I need to be done posting embedded links, you can visit these if you are bored or intrigued ;).

Nyan Caxx (based on a true story)
Jon Gomm - Passionflower (superhuman musical performance skills)
Marquese Scott - Pumped Up Kicks (superhuman dance performance skills)

That last one... no camera tricks... one take... and a reprehensible disregard for basic physics <mind officially blown> ;). Muscle isolation the likes of which I have never seen before (and I know a lot of excellent belly dancers).

Well, if it's any consolation you tuned into Mus before me. I had only ever heard one or two songs but these videos - wow! Blown away indeed!

Marquese Scott on the other hand, I had seen before. And this very same video is the one that introduced me to him. And yeah, he is SICK. Peanut and I both had to pick up our jaws from the floor. Crazy shit man!
