ok, i know this post isn't exactly seasonal but i couldn't resist. i mean, the song is called 'halloween' and the band is called helloween. the video involves the band jammin in a spooky forest, luring out all the hotties of the forest with their guitar and headbanging skills. there is some serious fashionspiration in this vid though - the drummer is wearing a fringe jacket and the girls of the forest have some very pastel, frosted eyeshadow going on. how chic! i wish it was helloween every day. p.s. notice the guy in the klaus nomi outfit? random.
my friend caroline found this trippy amazing kitty kat jam. how did i go this long without jingle cats in my life? srsly?! whoever came up with this idea and was actually weird enough to pursue it and make it real is a genius. i LOVE the part when the cat is spinning around the eyeball and the music gets all psychedelic. my other fave interlude is when the two kittens harmonize while the dog barks. as soon as the jingle cats full-length move is in stock on the website im buying it. this christmas im going to start a jingle cats tradition that will carry on through generations of my descendants.
kids incorporated was one of my fave fave shows growing up and i totally remember fergie. this performance of lionel richie's 'say you say me' is one of her finest ever, and it takes place in some abandoned but also magical back alleys. the best part of this video, other than fergie ferg's jewish sideburn curls, is the extremely creepy, horribly frightening clown. as fergie sings to him he smiles while swinging a broom, playing with a yo-yo, and romantically giving fergie some plastic flowers. the last scene of this video, which was edited out, is the clown stuffing fergie in a bag and kidnapping her to be his slave for a year. or at least that's the direction it seems to be going...
i don't even know what category to place stefania rotolo and her two dancing children companions in. family jam? disco jam? cowboy jam? i think if you add in some red spandex then somehow they all intersect. the video for 'ufo robot' involves dancing in the center of a robot pow-wow with everyone holding sparklers. freaky. and i had already watched 'marameo' twice before i realized the full glory of the little boy. if you just watch him it is CRAZY AMAZING! he is in the exact same outfit as his mom and sister, including the high cut metal underwear! whoever that little boy grew up to be, he has a lifelong legacy with this video, for real.
whoa, i've seen a lot of dance videos but neva seen nobody move like this dude. i think his jnco jeans have magical powers because he moonwalks in all directions. and he takes up the entire dancefloor with his crazy slide and glide hardcore raver moves. i like when he goes supa dupa crazy in his room at the end. i think his look may be in the running for my halloween costume next year.... except i would throw in a pacifier and a glowstick.
all it takes is 3 dudes to create musical magic - one with a microphone, one with a drum, and one with a keyboard. and it doesn't hurt to have a frontman with a blazin mustache and some seriously bangin hip swaying skills. i love when he gets all crazay and jumps in the air out of excitement. and the background visuals - stunning. some of the faces that guy makes are really quite frightening, but i know his intentions come from a jolly happy place so it doesn't scare me too much.
when i first saw the last video i thought it was a japanese pop group covering the song, not actually dead or alive! pete burns has transformed himself into..... i don't know exactly what you would call him now. the first vid is the original 80s one with some sweet one-sided hair madness. the second vid is a remake by dead or alive in 1996. this is a gay goth drag vibe-ing version. the last one is totally wacked out with tartain plaid huge lips eyepatch insanity. so bizarre. it spins me right round.
if you can rock a pink metallic sequined mermaid dress and elbow length gloves on the dancefloor then you can do pretty much anything. the guy with the long hair freaks me out a bit because he kind of looks like a fashionisto from 2010 that traveled back in time to have the ultimate dance moment in history. and the lady in purple is a giant. this video is complete dancepiration.

april 30, 2006 will go down in history as a fine day for dancefloor battling. i love how everyone is standing around the perimeter of the dancefloor watching the dudes show off their sweet sweet moves. my fave is the fat guy with a bowl cut. how can u not love him? but the other guy has some pretty bombass flipping skills. it gets a bit weird towards the end when the fat guy seems to be pretending to pull rope and then they all start pretending to act drunk or something. when i get married can i book these guys to liven up the reception dance party? or would that be a bit too weird....
OMG i just noticed that around 20 seconds in the one guy flips and knocks the fat guy's hairpiece off!!!!!! that is INCREDIBLE!!!
i gotta give CL props on this one. this is a frickin amazing find that i still can't wrap my brain around. 'when you run out of gancha' - yes, gancha - is the masterpiece created by mental note, a teenage septet (if you count the two lurkers in the background) that appeared on a public access show in the early 90s. these boys have low energy but not at the price of a rowdy attitude. my fave is when the guy with the long blonde hair sings. when i run out of gancha im gonna try to write a song like this.... or maybe that can only be achieved after you've smoked the gancha... either way mental note is seriously inspirational.
