We all deal with catastrophe in different ways. So when Snowpocalypse 2.0 hit today, it's only logical that the OKS Twitterverse would have a myriad of reactions.
Red City Radio is incredulous: "Broken skylight in our building. It is officially snowing indoors. I blame Dally."
Dance Robots, Dance! is ecstatic: "boss said i don't have to work today. snow day! video games, fake chicken nuggets and finishing remixes! @katiewicks @baleoutphotos"
Samantha Crain is resigned: "http://twitpic.com/3y139m - Frozen pipes again. Its come to this I guess."
Sherree Chamberlain is logical: "considering making myself watch food inc. on my snow day so i'll stop binge eating on account of cabin fever."
Harp and Lyre has gone crazy: "Getting snowed in again. Time to watch Bring It On."
Wayne Coyne is, well, Wayne Coyne: "The snow drives back the foot that's slow http://twitvid.com/FXNOY"
It was a big week for music-related videos. Here’s a stack that will keep you busy for a good while.
Here’s NMF Main Stage band Foot Patrol’s muddy, skanky, marginally NSFW clip about their new dance, “The Mudslide.” If this inspires your groove, well, your Saturday just got better.
Heard about The Flaming Lips’ gummy-skull-music-release method? Well, here’s Wayne Coyne dropping the very first edibles off for sale at Guestroom Records (via Delo Creative). Woo-hoo!
The members of Verden, Okla.’s Southern rockers Anti-Mortem have tons of hair to headbang, and they put it to good use here.
Directors Lamar + Nik get creative with melting and growing ice sculptures in this fascinating clip for chillwave/not-chillwave tune “Reds” by Houses.
Ruby Coast (RIYL: Tokyo Police Club) dropped this gorgeous video for “Made to Change” that includes synchronized ice skating, geese and snowy landscapes.
SXSW fave Braids gets a mini-documentary, complete with interviews and four uninterrupted performances. It is pretty remarkable.
And for you tornado junkies out there, here’s terrifying video of some massive, deadly twisters that ripped through Alabama yesterday. —Stephen Carradini
