hanson + the duggars + the partridge family = the kelly family. im strangely fascinated by the power of the kelly family. they are so strange and i can't believe they were actually pretty popular for a while. they're like a medieval fraggle cult with unbelievably luscious long locks. part leprechaun, part goonies, part axl rose. sorry, i just cant stop trying to dissect what the hell they are. i can't decide which is more haunting - their melodies or their hair. or that they all look the same. or that one of them is named paddy. anyways, 'nanana' is my favorite video because they totally think that they are rock stars. p.s. i bet they used horse shampoo to keep their hair so beautiful.
once in a while i stumble upon a jam that once again blows my mind. this is one of them. the youtube description of this vid is 'my RNB influenced ode to the Winged Goddess of Egypt.' i would describe it as 'hypnotic magical beautiful makeup rapping inspirational jam.' well, not really. but i am diggin the ankh earring and red makeup going from his eyebrows to nose. my life would be so much emptier without bizarre people like this to entertain my brain.
holy schnikes!!! thank you candyflake_zup for throwin this amazing jam my way. this is so trippy amazingness overload that i can't handle it. why can't the world really be like this? it's like a children's tv show gone retarded hilarious. my fave is the guy with the white beard. he's fly
why acid trip on a playground like a creepster when you can just watch this vid instead? 'sesame's treet' by smart-e's is like a cracked out kiddie show where the lesson of the day is how to dance at a rave and skateboard. i mean, what other knowledge do you really need to prepare for entry into the world of grown-ups? but seriously the piano playing section of the video is not informational at all. how can u play any keys with those giant claws on? what are the smart-e's trying to teach our children? i think if i scored some sesame's treet then this vid would make a lot more sense.
SEE ME FEEL ME HEAR ME LOVE ME TOUCH ME! i love love love'thunderdome' by messiah. how can a dance/club jam about the beginning of the internet aka the information highway not be amazing?! im so into the look of the slightly tribal early computer graphics. so sick. and i love how they have different girls from around the world blankly saying the words like a humanoid robot. the second version is a bit more renegade rebel than brainwashing fantasy. the more i watch these videos the more obsessed i gettttttt
so the first post i ever did on pumpthatjam was 'L.S.I.' by the shamen, also an all-time fave jam. i investigated them on youtube and found some more amazing jams - the live performance of 'comin' on strong' blows my mind, especially the guy with the long hair, circle shades and magical gray striped outfit that is the same as in the music vid. love the girl in lime green interpretive sit-dancing in the back as well. 'phorever people' is pretty trippy amazing - love the scene with them on the swing and i DIE when the guy is rapping while hanging in the air from a harness. now that's gangsta.
so lately i've had a mini obsession with prodigy. i mean, the dude has blonde eyebrows, a krusty the clown hairdo and a bull nose piercing! who doesn't find that appealing? jk. but srsly im kind of really into 'firestarter.' that video is also kind of genius. but if you watch it with the sound off it's like a parody, especially when he is hanging from above. that dude can give face. 'breathe' has the krusty hairdo in purple and green (yay!) and features some creepy crawlies. sweet. 'charly' is a bonus acid trip rave jam just for fun.
