Video: Cloud Cult’s “Everybody Here Is a Cloud” video

This was shot like 5 blocks from my house. I was babysitting at the time. Sorry about the pre-roll ad.

Update: Yipes. That video embed didn’t work at all (thanks, VodPod!); instead, it launched the video upon loading the page, not even waiting for one to hit play.

Here’s the link instead. Worth the click.

*Scarlett Johansson’s cover of Tom Waits’ “Falling Down.” [Universal Music Group]

*The perfect song length: 2:42 (worth reading for the third line of the essay alone). Also, here is a Muxtape on the matter.

*Local: Billy Bob Thornton (the old man who is supposedly one of my hideous doppelgangers) will be playing MUSIC as part of the Minnesota Zoo concert series. [switchblade comb]

*An execrable Star Tribune mini-review of the Minneapolis (well, Maplewood) Kraftwerk show. [mediation]

*MyStrands wants to invest $100k in somebody who has a really smart recommendation engine idea. [duke listens]

*Of the top 25 YouTube search terms for March 2008, 16 were musical, including: Lil Wayne, Low, Chris Brown, No Air, Soulja Boy, Jonas Brothers, Usher, Hannah Montana, Miley Cyrus and others. The others were mostly porn. [del.icio.us/mediaeater]

*Is Apple about to start kicking ass in the instant messaging space with Apple Conversation? Some quasi-celebrities say yes.
