I made a little YouTube playlist featuring my top ten music videos from one of my favorite music video directors, Michel Gondry. These are in chronological order and span the years 1993-2002. He also directed "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind".
MixtressRae's Top Three:
* Hyperballad // Bjork
* Sugar Water // Cibo Matto
* Around the World // Daft Punk
For as long as I can remember, I have been obsessed with music videos. They combine two of my favorite things: music and, urm, videos. Just like any art format, they can depict anything, but the format of putting a visual to a song lends itself to more surreal imagery. You can tell a huge story in a short time while still keeping it vague. A music video doesn't have to make sense. Michel Gondry doesn't make sense. What's your favorite Michel Gondry music video? Here's a list of all the videos he has directed.

This is a little check-in podcast while we are waiting for April 28th to get here so we can talk about another Buffy episode!
Also, I made a video playlist of Janet Jackson's "Rhythm Nation 1814".

Let's talk about Xander. Let's talk about fragile masculinity and how every boy has to wade through a whole mess of sexist predatory hunter ideologies in order to graduate into a decent man. Is there hope for Xander after all?

I had a brief love affair with a gorgeous corset called the What Katie Did Vamp. I loved her quality and her experience (She had had many many hours with her previous owner. She'd been stitched back together and even smelled delightfully like a true vamp!), but she was just too small for me. I ended up sending her to a new home, but I wanted to upload this video outlining my experience with my first WKD corset that was also my first used corset.
