Combined with the fact that I’ve yet to really explore the world of music videos on this site (mostly because a couple of my peeps already do that quite skillfully), I’m going to attempt to make Saturdays a day for videos. I’ve got some old VHS tapes that need transferring to digital format, so hopefully this will inspire me to do that.
Videos certainly take a certain amount of patience and concentration. More than that, though, watching videos is mostly a stationary exercise, unless, of course, you own a video iPod (which I do not). That’s probably part of the reason I’ve neglected posting videos on this site. Listening to music, as opposed to watching it, allows for a certain amount of multitasking. Videos pretty much require your undivided attention. Me, I’m an antsy person. I like to move, even if I’m not really going anywhere in particular. Ben, Eric and, more recently, Chad have grabbed my attention by posting videos. So … why not give it a shot?
Anyway, today’s selection is for The Raconteurs’ Steady, As She Goes, and although I don’t quite have the credentials to pass a critical eye on video direction, this is a grainy, motion-sickness-inducing piece of visual art. Love the song, but seriously, pass the Dramamine.
More disconcerting: What’s with the top hat Brendan Benson is wearing?
