It is a bloggy thing to do… but I am going out of my TREE.
So here goes:
1) You know it is over when you let your guitarist sing and people are sticking feet in his face.* I can’t stop laughing about this.
2) You know you’ve hit an all new level of genius when you can release a song about writing tunes on the bowl, have them make a music video out of it and get paid .
3) And this has hands down got to be the absolute lamest-half-hearted-I-have-no-idea-what-to-shoot-for-the-video I’ve ever scene. I can only imagine the conversation leading up to it. â€œHey guys, we’ve just written a really great song, but let’s not even try on the video. Let’s just shoot a home movie of us making a fried breakfast.â€
They should have let Edge stick his feet in the eggs.
If anyone has got some other ones – hit me up in the comment section. Cause I’m here till 5 so I gets paaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiddddd like Biz Markie.

1) I remember this video during our college years. IIRC my room mate, Gieve Patel, thought Edge was the shiznit (though possibly for other reasons).
3) Meh. There’s worse out there. I remember there was some song a few years back by some demi-punky/quazi-ska band along the lines of Everclear or Greenday. Almost the entire video was them driving from house to house picking up band mambers. That was pretty stupid.
Once upon a time, back in freshman high school English class, we were assigned a project for which we were required to choose a song that we liked, and delve into the lyrics, describing any symbolism or anything else we could pull out of our butts. For some reason, at the time I was simply mad about Numb. I couldn’t get enough of it! Naturally, I decided to use that song for my project. I remember writing pages and pages about the brilliance of the lyrics, and, as extra credit, incorporated the relationship between the song and its corresponding video, which I had taped (at the house of a friend who had cable) to show the class. That project was arguably one of my best works in high school. My teacher even told me so…almost.
“It’s a good song, Megan, and you’ve done some really hard work on this project. But why are there feet in that man’s face?”
