The music video for Kanye West’s Monster featuring Jay-Z, Bon Iver, Rick Ross and Nicki Minaj leaked to the interwebs today. It’ll probably be taken down, as it seems to be an unfinished preview copy– so get it while it’s hot! I can’t wait to see it in it’s proper HD glory.

Another highly conceptual music video from the now independent, OK Go for their song End Love from the album Of the Blue Colour of the Sky. Directed by Jeff Lieberman and Eric Gunther. Background information about techniques used in the video, via a quote from Jeff Lieberman is below:
The fastest we go is 172,800x, compressing 24 hours of real time into a blazing 1/2 second. The slowest is 1/32x speed, stretching a mere 1/2 second of real time into a whopping 16 seconds. This gives us a fastest to slowest ratio of 5.5 million. If you like averages, the average speed up factor of the band dancing is 270x. In total we shot 18 hours of the band dancing and 192 hours of LA skyline timelapse – over a million frames of video – and compressed it all down to 4 minutes and 30 seconds! Oh and don’t forget, it’s one continuous camera shot.

Friends of The Cluh, VA’s own, Clipse have released the music video for their song “Kinda Like A Big Deal” featuring Kanye West and produced by DJ Khalil off their upcoming album “Till The Casket Drops.” It’s a good video and the song goes hizard.

Spike Jonze directed this video waaaay back in the mid 90’s. I was 7 or 8 when it came out but I still remember it from being played on MTV and The Box and recently (a few years ago), The Work of Director Spike Jonze DVD from Palm Pictures.
I also know of Mr. Jonze from his directing, filming and editing of the legendary skateboarding video masterpiece “Video Days” that came out in 1991 from Blind Skateboards feating the likes of Mark Gonzalez, Guy Mariano, Jason Lee and others. I first saw it as a 174px QuickTime video that circulated online during the early 2000’s and it was still damn good even when pixelated as fuck. He also is the co-founder of Girl Skateboards and does direction for their skateboard videos and also is an established Hollywood producer, actor and director with such movies as Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, Synecdoche, New York, and the upcoming Where the Wild Things Are due out in October.
Okay, this post wasn’t really about the video, but the video is still a classic and the behind the scenes/commentary on the Spike Jonze DVD is definitely worth the purchase.
