The Official Music Video for "Do It Anyway," the first track from Ben Folds Five's much anticipated album THE SOUND OF THE LIFE OF THE MIND...featuring the Fraggles from Jim Henson's "Fraggle Rock"! Also starring Rob Corddry, Anna Kendrick & Chris Hardwick.
Moon Unit Zappa performs "Valley Girl" on Solid Gold, 1982. (like, for Sarah Ruxin)
Richard Metzger first turned me on to Father John Misty (the new project by J. Tillman), and writes about this video, "I have no idea what the fuck is going on here, although the final moments make the intention a little bit clearer...I think...but I like it."

Via New Orleans native Clayton Cubitt, who says,
I'm gonna say this again, for those of you who yearn for the energy and danger and artistic vitality that NYC had in the 70s/80s, you need to drop everything and get yourself to New Orleans right now.
Shot in and around the Bywater in New Orleans, features friends of mine like Quack, and Rusty Lazer’s Swoon-festooned front steps and amazing art village, and local characters like Amzie Adams, this is your “must watch” of the week.
The album is available as MP3 download at Amazon.
(Video Link) Behold a terrifying new video for Here We Go Magic's new song "Make Up Your Mind". I'm not sure what's going on in here, but I'm positive I don't want it to happen with me. Please note that the video contains lots of ladies in distress in their underpants. Don't watch it if that bothers you.
Here We Go Magic are an intense and riveting live band. They're on tour in the US and UK right now and the show is worth seeing if they are in your town. Their excellent new album A Different Ship hits on May 8.
The Blast Lab at Imperial College, London, is a place where scientists study how explosions affect the human skeleton, and try to find ways to mitigate some of those effects. As you can imagine, this involves blowing stuff up fairly regularly and The Blast Lab is a pretty loud place.
But the team of students behind PLoS' Inside Knowledge blog noticed something cool about that. The sounds in The Blast Lab weren't just loud noises, they were loud notes. Edit them together, and you could reproduce a whole song, using nothing but sounds recorded in a working scientific laboratory.
In this video, the Inside Knowledge crew plays The White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army" on the Imperial College Blast Lab. In case you're curious, here's the breakdown showing what lab equipment the team used to replicate the sound of which instruments.
Bass Guitar: Main sensor output cable
Bass Drum: Blast Rig
Toms: Hammer & Storm Case
Hi-Hat: Oil Spray
Cymbal: Blast Plate
'Vocals': Laces to contain dummy leg during blast
'Guitar': Accelerometer cable & Fastening Strings

[Video Link] The Wilco track "Dawned On Me" re-imagined as a classic, early-era Popeye cartoon. The song is from the band's Grammy-nominated 2011 album, "The Whole Love." They're on tour now, and should not be missed, as they are one of the greatest live acts on the planet. The animation is a collaboration with King Features, and is "the first hand-drawn Popeye cartoon in more than 30 years." Directed by Darren Romanelli. Best url ever: wilcospinach.com.
A little more about how the video came to be, below, from Wilco and Romanelli...
I've been a fan of Jonny McGovern's hilarious gay-oriented music videos for years, so I was glad to see a new one pop up in Submitterator. Normally I'd let a video like this speak for itself, but I'd like to highlight a few key lyrics that just make it:
I be sexy strippin'
We can read science fiction
while we make science friction.
You and I, we can fly
with Bill Nye the Science Guy.
I'll be working your shaft
while you play World of Warcraft.
We can get our freak on
in the bathroom at Comic Con.
If you're not comfortable with hunky men dancing around in their underwear, you may not want to watch this video. That's as racy as it gets, though.
This is the second video in Mama Hope's "Stop the Pity. Unlock the Potential" campaign. This video campaign is about telling the story of connection instead of contrast and potential instead of poverty. Directed by Joe Sabia and Bryce Yukio Adolphson. Shot and Edited by Bryce Yukio Adolphson. Sound Mix by Matt McCorkle. Produced by Nyla Rodgers.
Frequent fliers on Virgin America who watch our in-flight Boing Boing television channel on the airline, and regular readers of this blog, will also recall another great video Joe Sabia did with Mama Hope: "Alex Teaches Commando." If you missed it before, you need to watch it now.
