I don't really check for music videos that much anymore. But watching these two sick out so far. The 2nd one especially.

Not that big a fan of her music, but this M.I.A. video is kinda slick. But probably just cause I'm a fan of the dudes skating with the car shit HA.

    Yeah Chan! My homie directed that video, and I'm really glad to see him getting some well-earned props. He did this Curren$y one too last year that I really liked..

    So, let me disclaim this by saying I'm not really a fan of their music, but if we're talmbout videos, this Roger Ballen shit is crazy.


  • you gotta be fucking kidding me with that MIA video. straight-up offensive.

    She's just re-enacting scenes from youtube videos no? Or was it something to with the lyrics, cause I watched it with the sound off.

    Ha! Yeah - I saw this thread and immediately thought of this clip which I only discovered yesterday. Pretty fucking out there. I'm kinda into their stuff, but I don't really know why. It's just got somethign that compells me to listen to it.

    this.

    Nevermind the fact that MIA appropriated a homegrown Saudi phenomenon and the women driving issue is propelled by Saudi women themselves. Its all about how MIA is saving some savages and showing them what its all about!

  • MIA as appropriator of third-world phenomena and values trailblazer is one of the most disingenuous things to ever happen in pop culture. didn't lynn hirschberg put this shit to bed 3 years ago?
