OK GO Clean It Up and Avril Lavigne's Clothes

So after last night's post about the mash-up potential of Willow Smith's video for "Whip My Hair" vs J. Geils Band's "Freeze Frame" video, someone told me about the OK Go video for "This Too Shall Pass" and I watched it in it's Rube Goldberg-ian glory, and it is pretty awesome. And as usual, the comments for it from viewers are AWESOME. So it's the whole video of contraptions knocking things over etc., which I'm sure made a huge glorious mess. And then here's the best comment:

OK Go clean it up

Anyway, I was amused by both video and the comments as usual. I did take a picture of the paint-related part too, since I'm beginning to see a "paint-splattervision" theme in music videos. Interesting.

Also! I noticed at the end of the video it said Brought to you by (or was it "sponsored by" or maybe just "State Farm Insurance" with a logo?). Poetic/humerous/ironic but probably on purpose in some clever marketing angel kind of a way. But! I don't care, it's an awesome video.

I'm almost done with my next issue of my zine Caboose, and I am proud to leak some of the few rejected images I'm not using in this next issue. And it will give a good overview of some of the things in this issue.

Why are they tags from Avril Lavigne's Abbey Dawn clothing line at Kohl's, you ask? Because I did a clothing product line review/creative non-fiction piece about the Candie's Britney Spears clothing line at Kohl's. Avril Lavigne's clothes at Kohl's are 13 racks down. And because I am pretty much maxed out at the maturity of a teenager in terms of my clothing tastes, I am interested in both lines. How arty of me to scan in these tags in black and white. And why did I spend $40 on this skirt? And then there's a ridiculous shirt to go with it. I know, I know, I can barely pay my bills. Hey, it's for the sake of art. I was writing about it! I couldn't just NOT buy them. Um yeah. I'll just keep telling myself that.

So here's me dressed up in Avril Lavigne clothes. But first a picture of her so you have an appropriate reference photo. I think I tried more to communicate essence more than actual pose. Enjoy! You're welcome! Sleep tight! Zzzzz...Are you sleeping? Wake up! Wake up! Look at me in Avril LAvigne clothes! Really! Really! Look at me! I'm not touching you, I'm not touching you, la la la la!

Go back to bed now!
