the oh so quiet show

Postcard from Kings of Convenience

little houses
Hey, it’s Bergen!

Ah, I love a band that writes a nice lil’ postcard to their fans. It says they plan on releasing their new album at the end of September, followed by A TOUR! YEAAAAAAAH! They are lovely live, for their music and banter. I’m looking forward to it. (I also like how there’s a sideways emoticon on the postcard even though it’s hand written.)

Literal Version of ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’ Video

WHAT. (My favorite part start at 2:50.)

This literal version of Total Eclipse of the Heart is 100000 percent awesome with some whipped cream and a cherry on top and maybe a sprinkling of crushed peanuts. But the original video is real. It’s. Someone…thought of it. Someone else…funded it. And a bunch of people contributed their time by acting in it. Or something. Which blows my mind.

Wikipedia sort of has an explanation:

The Gothic themed video features Bonnie Tyler clad all in white, apparently having a dream or fantasy about her students in a boys’ boarding school. Young men are seen dancing and participating in various school activities such as swim team, fencing, football, and singing in a choir. Also, there are unexplained ninjas. The video was shot at Holloway Sanatorium.

…not really.
