Topic: Paparazzi

Music Video Thursday

Because I'm not coming to work on Monday!

Yukon’s Luke Dick makes an appropriately creepy video for his mellowed-out version of “Paparazzi.” Let’s see how many careers this song can launch!



If a fan-made, “unofficial” video is sent out by a PR company, does that make it official? Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.’s charming “Simple Girl” has a charming clip that tests the theory.



In just 1:26, Cerebral Ballzy (yes, really) does Las Vegas in true punk style.



Cassettes Won’t Listen’s “Perfect Day” is a head-scratcher till the satisfying end.



Punks Rise Against go all PSA, but because it’s Rise Against, it doesn’t suck.



Rarely is a video so perfectly matched with a song’s sound as with Amor de Dias’ nostalgic video and dreamy acoustic sound.

Amor de Dí­as - Wild Winter Trees from Merge Records on Vimeo.


Zorch’s hyperkinetic, synth-based experimental music makes me want to jump up and down, as well as go back to SXSW, where they played something like 16 shows.



Indie-poppers Mates of States’ new video is vintage in a “are they kidding or not?” sort of way.




While you’re here, grab these free MP3s!

Breakers” – Gem Club. If Iron and Wine had taken up piano …
Shoeboxes” – David Ramirez. Gorgeous. Just gorgeous.
Jump with a Child’s Heart” – Annie Crane. I don’t know how so much great country/folk comes out of urban settings. The vocals win here.

Some Dick is going to trash a car

And you're invited!

Wanna be in a music video? Then director Richard Farmer and singer/songwriter Luke Dick, both Okie vets, sure could use you and your aggression. They’re be shooting a vid for Dick’s new song, “Who Am I,” on Sept. 10 in the Film Exchange District.

The concept: beating the crap out of an automobile.

“I’ve always wanted to capture the sledgehammer tradition in a video in some sensational fashion, especially for such a bombastic tune,” said Dick in a press release. “Over dinner, I was telling Oklahoma entrepreneur Chip Fudge about the idea of a video with apocalyptic Okies bashing a car. Being such an ol’ gear head, he got a big smile on his face and said, ‘I want to be a part of that! What better place than the Film Exchange for a film event?’”

Sound like a plan? Here’s the deal:
• Meet at 5:30 p.m. in the parking lot behind Joey’s Pizza, IAO Gallery and the Hart Building, in the 700 block of West Sheridan.
• Donate $5 at the gate, benefiting Bikers Against Child Abuse.
• Be 18 or older.
• Dress in a letter jacket or a prom dress, and in skeleton makeup.
• Read that last one again; you weren’t hallucinating.
• Don’t worry — you’re in good hands. Farmer directed Gnarley Barkley’s “Run” video, after all.
• And until then, enjoy this clip of Dick covering Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi.” Hey, it worked for that kid in Edmond. —Rod Lott
