    I happened to remember that I needed to write my rent check once I started this video… then as I was filling it out, I realized I was filling out check #666. Just a coincidence I thought I’d share.

    Man, The Wire was a good series…

    Oh, this version of Way Down is pretty sweet too.

    that was nice, she’s got a good eye. and i like the idea that her and blaqstarr hang out and watch joy division videos on youtube.

    It looks like she borrowed more than a bit from the video for Fredo Viola’s ‘Sad Song’:

    It remains one of the most beautiful music videos I’ve ever seen, and the fact that it was created solely with 15 second clips from an old Nikon 3 megapixel camera makes it all the more impressive.

    Much that is good flows from Tom Wait’s music.

    This was no exception.

    That was a Wonderful Thing. Thanks for putting some sweet, sweet groove in my day.

    I’m always being told that I worry about the wrong thing.. but is anyone else bothered by the fact that the right-most video player is a different size from the rest?

    Other than that, the video is pretty neat. Wish I liked the cover better.

    This is by far the best song I’ve heard from her. Of course this means I actually listened to most of it as opposed to thinking “wow this is crap” less than a minute in. Must be the Tom Waits detail.

    A juxtaposition of MIA, with classic Tom Waits lyrics. It is much like seeing two rooms in my apartment simultaneously. For the record, I like this prospect.

    I am officially on an M.I.A. binge now.
