Gil Scott Heron…Me & The Devil vid

wow! you might remember Gil Scott Heron from alot of old spoken word type records in the 70s. he was sort of one of the reasons rapping happened, at least on record. this new cut from him sounds like a blues lyric form set to some super hard music. very very nice…

q-tip/norah jones…life is better vid

Here’s a reeaally good video for Q-Tip’s “Life Is Better” featuring Norah Jones.

I like Norah Jones…i think she’s very talented. Great, soulful but unprocessed voice. Plus she’s adorable and i have a big crush on her. The songs great but the video’s better.
I love the idea of taking an effect and being dedicated to it throughout a video. The problem is, my attention span is only so long so sometimes it gets old quickly. That’s the paradox and the risk one takes when taking this approach. This video does a good job with the quick cuts. Nothing seems to get stale ever.

Peace, and life IS better, love.

I love not only the b&w, but the filter they have going throughout to give it a look like it’s from a 60s performance. i’ll say this too about him, not everybody just looks good in a suit. most people can’t just wear a suit and look comfortable. alot of it is about how you wear it, not just what you wear. this dude looks good in a suit. i digs it!

peace, and let’s take a walk love.
