Moving Image Appreciation Post #4

Earlier I was walking with a cup of water and I bent down to pat Donnie, who stuck his nose into the cup and drank out of it for me. Between them, he and Fred took about two minutes to slurp the lot.

Keep hydrated, children!

It’s 11/12/13, which is a big deal because we’ll all be dead the next time it happens, so I thought I’d share some videos I like:

Selfie Song – Jamich and Davey Langit

I saw a bit of a music video about selfies on Al Jazeera the other day and I’m not sure if this is it – I’m also not sure where it’s set or the language they’re speaking – but it’s pleasant and cutsie and a reminder that selfies are flipping stupid.

Thought of the day: could you take a selfie with a flip phone?

 

Pantene’s Philippines Advert

 

By trashing labels they’ve promoted their own, but their concept’s sound. Women aren’t equal to men in the workplace, although while breaking those glass ceilings we can have shiny-as hair, yay! It also looks like it’d be great in the cinema, if it’s not already (I love cinema adverts. I play ‘guess the product’ then pretend I’ve got a film trailer then when they have the Love Cinema/Hate Piracy bit I get a kick out of the fact it’s the same font as the second I’m Not Okay video).

Speaking of glass ceilings.

Lily Allen – Hard Out Here

 

“Erm… I’ve had two babies.” Hallelujah and thank you universe for Lily Allen. Thankyouthankyouthankyou for doing the robot in front of a Robin Thicke piss-take.

I’m going to go around with “bitch bitch bitchbitch” in my head all tomorrow, ah…

So this is the twenty-first century, readers who found this while researching the last time the date said 11/12/13!

This Song Reminds Me Of My Friends, Extended Family, Etc.

What I mean by that is, thank you for your company!

Frank’s Weekly/Monthly/Quarterly/Annual Moving Image Appreciation Post #1

You’ve probably noticed by now that I spend a large portion of my time on the Interwebz and watching television and films (though I still have not seen Forrest Gump, despite my best efforts to – best efforts being thinking, “I should find out if we own that!” – or Breakfast At Tiffany’s). Anyway, I thought it would be a good idea to share my love of moving images with you all on a somewhat regular basis. I don’t know how regular yet because I’m lazy, forgetful and quite unreliable when it comes to blogging specific things… Let’s just see how it pans out.

So, without further ado:

Axis of Awesome: 4 Chord Song

 

Since I’ve recently learnt the Circle of Fifths, I think this is the most brilliant thing ever. Also very proud that none of my favourite bands are in there – though no one’s heard of most of them, so maybe I shouldn’t be too pleased… Chords, by the way, are C, G, A minor and F.

Venetian Princess: 7 Things Spoof

 

If you’re a girl who doesn’t do one of the things Venetian Princess sings about, or you’re one of the guys who does, come say hi. And pass this on to everyone else.

Weird Al Yankovic: Amish Paradise

 

The brilliant thing about this video is that Amish people can’t be offended by this, because to do so they’d have to see it and know what they’re missing! It’s unoffendable!

Weird Al Yankovic: Perform This Way

 

It took me quite a few watches to twig they’d Photoshopped Al’s face on a girl’s body. I was thinking, “He’s well fit for an old bloke!”

Gerard Rockin’ In His Pajamas

 

Everyone’s favourite band jamming during the making of Revenge. Song, I belive, is AC/DC’s Problem Child.

Could you deal with more blogs like this or shall I stick to ranting?! Sorry if there are any spelling mistakes, the WP spellchecker keeps zonking out.
