Watch Paul McCartney’s Awful Destiny Song

Posted by Bob Muir on Dec 10, 2014 in Videogames

Destiny: Hope for the Future

So Paul McCartney wrote a song for Bungie’s Destiny, since he worked on the soundtrack for the game. It’s called “Hope for the Future,” and it’s the ending song for the game. It is a bad, generic song about wanting a better tomorrow, but it can get worse. There’s now this official music video, and it’s really bad. Ghost projects a hologram of McCartney singing the song and just looking ridiculous, as Guardians sit and listen for some reason, while the rest of the imagery tries its best to sell the game. If I didn’t already pass on buying Destiny, this certainly wouldn’t have helped persuade me. Read more…

Blacksad Artist Animates Music Video For Swedish Rock Band

Posted by Ben Huber on Nov 1, 2014 in Animation

Most folks know Juanjo Guarnido as the man behind Blacksad (the amazing French noir comic series), but he also used to be a Disney animator. He recently teamed up with Fortiche Production earlier in the year to raise a bunch of money on Kickstarter (over $140,000) as a means to create a music video for Swedish rock band Freak Kitchen. Let’s just say: the money was put to good use. They’ve officially released the completed music video and it features a ton of gorgeous animation and fluid head-banging. Sadly, the song isn’t that good… but the video more than makes up for it. Check out the music video below! Read more…

Happy in Tunisia

Posted by Ben Huber on Mar 9, 2014 in Fandom, Star Wars


Tunisia! It’s a pretty cool place, but most fans know it as Tatooine, from Star Wars. A group of dedicated fans living in Tunisia want you to know more about the place, so they’ve put together a video parodying Pharrell William’s incredibly popular song Happy, featuring Star Wars cosplayers dancing in the sandy dunes and through the remaining sets. It’s pretty dorky, but you can tell everyone involved was having a blast, so their enthusiasm rubs off on you pretty quickly. Check out the video below and visit Star Wars Tunisia’s Facebook page here. Read more…



Animation Station: C2C’s Delta Music Video

Posted by Ben Huber on Sep 30, 2013 in Animation


Every once in a while a music video comes out that actually does something cool. I also have a soft spot for animated music videos, so C2C‘s latest music video for their song “Delta” is right up my alley. It’s got a great visual style that reminds me of the art of Genndy Tartakovsky mixed with a more orange sci-fi tint. If only more bands would do this! I’m still hoping for someone else to do their own Interstella 5555 for a new age. But for now, this is a wonderful piece. It also is one giant metaphor. See if you can figure it out — it’s pretty clear. Great job CRCR! Watch the video below. Read more…



Transfer Music Video is Lively and Animated

Posted by Ben Huber on Oct 21, 2012 in Animation, Anime


Like livetune? How about Megumi Nakajima? Maybe school girls traveling through time and space, bizarre colorful worlds, and ancient Japan in a desperate attempt to get to school? What do you mean that doesn’t make sense? Come on now, this is anime. Logic and rules aren’t exactly a priority here. This recent music video for livetune’s song, Transfer, with Megumi Nakajima, is really cool and blends surprisingly well with the music. Check it out! Read more…



LEGO Version of Foster the People’s Houdini Rocks Out!

Posted by Ben Huber on Sep 29, 2012 in Fandom


YouTube user Insomniac has been making some amazing LEGO videos for a while now, but his latest music video featuring Foster the People and their song Houdini is probably my favorite. I’m really amazed at how much time he spent working on it, getting all the camera angles correct and making the lighting really work – it’s incredibly good. And fluid, too! Hopefully he’ll post a video on his site soon showing off the behind-the-scenes work done on it. Till then, click through the break to see an awesome music video featuring cute plastic yellow people jamming out. Read more…

William Shatner’s Bohemian Rhapsody

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Oct 20, 2011 in Fandom, Star Trek

This will either be the most terrifying or magnificent thing you’ll see all day. It’s certainly no “Rocket Man,” but Shatner’s spoken-word cover of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” could be just as campy — at least, the music video certainly is. I’m not sure how I’d go about explaining the premise, but it starts with a couple who are spending their evening stargazing. Suddenly Shatner’s face materializes in the night sky and everyone seems a little confused as to why, but rather than freak out, they just sort of let him do his thing. There’s some talking carps, a choir of goats, and some other random happenings culminating in Shatner’s latest album, Seeking Major Tom, crash landing to Earth. It’s truly bizarre, to say the least. Any way, if you’re looking to pick up a copy, you can purchase it via Amazon. I should also note, the album’s available in CD, MP3 or vinyl.

Michael Jackson: The Master of the Music Videos Passes Away

Posted by Michael Pinto on Jun 26, 2009 in Television

Michael Jackson: A record player from the 80s

With the passing of Michael Jackson everyone is focused on title “the king of pop” but to me his contribution was much more important in another area: The fine art of making music videos. This is important to me as I came of age in the 80s and while my taste in music was more on the new wave side than pop or R&B I was (and still am) bery much a hardcore fan of music videos. Yet even if you weren’t a Michael Jackson fan during that era if you were into music videos you couldn’t avoid his domination of the medium. In fact I think it would be fair to say that Jackson was one of the artists that made a network like MTV possible. Read more…
