D: Various

Meshes of an afternoon stumbling through 23 music videos. The Good the Bad's "030," directed by Jeppe Kolstrup: Gee, your music is so good that a young woman will fuck your guitar to it. Son of Kick's "Playing the Villain," directed by Matt Devine: Gee, your music is so dangerous that three teens trapped in a bait car blaring it at 300 decibels will die of ear- and nosebleeds. OK Go's "All Is Not Lost," directed by OK Go, Pilobolus, and Trish Sie: Butts and feet look so much nicer in a kaleidoscope. Céline Desrumaux's "Countdown," directed by Desrumaux: Gorgeous computer animation was possible in our lifetimes due to space exploration, so this seems fitting. Goyte (featuring Kimbra), "Somebody That I Used To Know," directed by Natasha Pincus: Yes, I felt like I blended in with the wallpaper when I got dumped, too. Hyperpotamus' "De Camino," directed by Lucas Borras: How did you manage to combine the repetitive, exotic intensity of "Tunak Tunak Tun" with the stark twilight backdrop of "Nyan Cat" and make it all work? Christeene's "African Mayonnaise," directed by PJ Raval: Scientologists and mall cops on Segways will never win, but you will, Christeene, you will.
