It’s so crazy to me sometimes how people think up such creative ideas and actually bring them to life. Earlier this week, I was talking with my friend about storylines and themes when it comes to concepts for videos or shows. It amazes me how clever and ingenious people are coming up with that shit. I remember seeing a quote plastered on a bulletin board in my college dorm hall that read “Great Things Never Come From Comfort Zones.” Thinking about it now, I can see how that could apply to a lot of things. I feel like it’s easy to tell someone to try and do things you don’t normally do, or try and “break” your daily routine. Doesn’t mean I’ll go skydiving tomorrow (but I’m still planning to one day), but people sometimes forget about the little things that can help you along the way to break out of your comfort zone. I try my best to find different ways to spice up my day. One thing that gives me a good push is mixing up different genres of music, tv shows, or movies all at once to get those creative juices flowing.
This week’s videos are definitely a mixed bunch, but are sure to having you laughing, thinking, confused, nostalgic, and in awe. These videos feature the latest from Weezer, Shabazz Palaces, NVDES, Nathan for You, and more.
1.Weezer – “Mexican Fender”:
Weezer’s video for Mexican Fender definitely had me giggling from start to end. This story is about a seagull trying to win over the heart of a beautiful woman on the beach. Does he get the girl? Watch till the end and you’ll find out.
2. Shabazz Palaces – “Shine a Light (feat. Thaddillac)”:
The visuals for Shabazz Palaces’ video, Shine a Light really had me thinking. Enticed by a story surrounding what appears to be a sacrifice or offering. Still has me questioning, but overall a beautifully made video.
3. NVDES – “Sugar”:
Some cool colors and gooey visuals for NVDES new video for Sugar. My eyes feel funny staring into hers, but I can’t look away.
4. M83 – “Do It, Try It”:
“Let your imagination running wild” – literally. M83’s video for Do it, Try it, which was premiered at Sundance Next Fest, features children’s drawings coming to life to wreak havoc inside a small city diner.
5. Jamila Woods – “LSD” ft. Chance The Rapper:
Jamila Woods‘ video for LSD channels calm summery vibes with loads of color. Not to mention the video’s concept done by a high school student. Positive vibes all the way with this one!
6. Nathan For You – Season 4 Trailer:
I personally am in love with Nathan Fielder. I am a HUGE fan of his show and I can’t get enough of his awkward and crazy antics. This video is a sneak peek of the upcoming new season of “Nathan For You”. Watching this show makes me feel like I can do anything.
7. The Florida Project:
The movie tailer for The Florida Project brings me back to a time of innocent adolescence, with a touch of simplicity; having fun and getting into trouble.
