I'm starting to hear about this group a lot form people.

My video professor once said music videos are always terrible, without exception! haha I don't know if I'd go that far, but it made me look at music videos differently. There are a few I think are very good!


Happy Christmas, and thank you again for all your great work on Ox Herding!


I don't know if this qualifies as a recommendation, but I have seen worse music videos! My favourite part is when you can see her tonsils!

My daughter accused me of being a hipster because she found me looking on tumblr and listening to Florence + The Machine.

Thanks as always for a bit of Friday brightness!!

I just heard Florence + The Machine the other night - and Leona Lewis too. Seems we are being dragged into the 21c like it or no!

Happy Celebrations of all things wondrous in your life, Barry! Cats and dogs and elephants... and the odd unicorn!
