Valentine's Day Song Pick

I finished "The Office" on Netflix. Both actually. More specifically the British version, including the special. If you haven't seen the special than you're missing out on perhaps the finest ending of a television series I can think of. Let's just say it's simply beautiful. 

Anyhow, the song by Yazz (or Yazoo depending if you're from Britain or not) plays in the back, and emplihpies the entire scene. Ever since I've been hooked. A beautiful song, and even though it's complete synth pop cheesiness it somehow never feels that way. 

And the actual video for the song is pretty cute too.

Hyper Viral: "David After Dentist" - with remixes

So the most recent viral video that's been making its way around the 'nets is called "David After Dentist" and depicts a boy just after having a tooth pulled who is still drugged up on anesthesia and is basically drunk. It's been generating a lot of comment for being both funny and controversial. I think a lot of us can relate to what David is going through here, but was it right for his father (I assume) to film him in a moment of weakness and put it on the internet? Would he have guessed that it would garner a staggering 4 million views in just one week ? And that it would spawn a large number of "remixes"?

For The Win, David asks: "Is this real life?" The question of our times indeed.

Here is the original:

And here is my favorite remix so far, the METAL version! Headbanging and all. It rulez.

Canon Rock

For a Video site YouTube sure does put some awesome music together. Here is an example of a composition put together from multiple videos or guitar shredders from Japan. 

But my favorite part is the 'Rock On' sign. I'm glad that it is still alive and well somewhere on this earth.
