New video from the Aaron English Band. Good stuff. Great imagery/symbolism/’80s references. I want it to last about three times as long though, and/or develop into a mashup with some Falco Star Wars reference… love it.

Lately Coldplay’s Paradise has been on the radio nonstop. It’s been on my playlist for a personal reason besides the fact that Paradise is their best song in awhile. The fluidity and oomph of the intermittent bass line alone sets it apart from most of its peers. The relaxed beat and well-choreographed interplay of the piano, strings, and guitar make this a delectable track.

This past weekend I realized I hadn’t seen the video yet, so I tuned into YouTube to view a brilliant take on the song’s undercurrents. However, 41 seconds in, I said, “what?!” as Chris Martin’s escapee elephant stood in the Underground holding a cardboard sign: (more…)

Couch cushions, Springsteen, and caprine foot trimmings, oh my.
