Music Video Monday: Music makes strange bedfellows

Three rap, two rock, two local, three not

Let’s just take a minute and realize that OKC’s professional sports team is one of only four left still playing in the National Basketball Association.

Yeah. This is awesome. Way to go, Thunder. Way to go, OKC.

Also, it’s Music Video Monday.

Rapper Jabee reps the Thunder, which only makes me more excited for Game 4 tonight. Also getting a shout-out: the biblical man Enoch. Didn’t see that one comin’:



Bizarre patrons of music are becoming increasingly common (National Geographic has a record label?!), but Lipton Iced Tea and Pandora teaming up for a video series that features artist interviews is still a little bit of a head-scratcher. Still, this three-part interview with Stillwater’s Taddy Porter is pretty sweet.

While we’re on the subject of strange patrons, here’s a performance clip of NYC rapper Theophilus London kickin’ it at Cannes. The site and the preview ads are in French, which only contributes to the enjoyment. There are several incredibly surreal moments due to his audience, but the most hilarious is at 2:00:

Samson & Delilah

Down and out in Down Under.


Drama

Rod Lott
Samson & Delilah portrays a community so minute, so insular and so far removed from ours, it may as well be science fiction. Neither a documentary nor a remake of Cecil B.
