First of all, I received *FOUR* vids this year. Honestly, I'm absolutely flummoxed and gratified that these even exist. That they are all amazing in their own way is just f**king sweet.
What's especially awesome is that there are now THREE vids for the 1977 what-the-eff-did-I-just-watch masterpiece Hausu that didn't exist before, and they all come from different angles:
Great White Cat (unexpected instrumental music choice works amazingly well)
A Happy Song Where Everybody Dies (bulletproof music kink + dark humor = EEEE)
Rock Lobster (lyrical resonance makes everything MORE WTF, not less)
None of the vids are safe-for-work and they all contain copious amounts of blood (well, red water). Also your brain my never be the same again.
Last but under no circumstances least is a vid for The Mummy (1932);
Oh my heart. This is exactly the kind of vid I was hoping for when I requested the source, but it exceeded all of my expectations by using a Kanye West song that dug to the eternal soul of the material. Plus more Boris Karloff vids are never a bad.
I haven't had a chance to do as much viewing as I'd like, but here are some of the vids that I really dug this year:
- They Are Afraid of Us Together (A Dangerous Man: Lawrence After Arabia)
- Motivational Speaker (Edge of Tomorrow)
- Relations of Life (Europa Report)
- See You Again (Girl Meets World)
- Blow (Gone Girl)
- All 9 Hamilton vids for convincing me to give the musical another. Shot!
- Show Me Your Teeth (Hieronymus Bosch)
- Legs (Kingdom of the Spiders)
- Under Pressure (The Martian)
- He Drives Me Crazy (Night at the Museum)
- Bitch Puddin's Fuckin' Theme Song (Robot Chicken)
- Your Mother (Saga)
- Centuries (Wayne's World)
For the sake of ongoing mystery, I am not reccing anything that I have been guessed for. We'll see how those guesses turn out in a week.
