Creepy The Pooh

The Gallery1988 in LA is running a pretty trippy art show for the next couple of weeks. “The Schoolhouse Series” began with a series of drawings by preschoolers of Winnie The Pooh and friends. These drawings were then given to artists to interpret as they saw fit. The results are mostly pretty out there, and they can all be found on this page.

100 Awesome Music Videos

Pitchfork Media has put up their list of 100 Awesome Music Videos. It’s a pretty hit-and-miss list, with some great classics (it starts with A-Ha’s “Take on Me”) and some great unknowns (who ever heard of Cee-Lo?). But where it gets things right, it really gets it right. “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”, “Just a Gigolo/I Ain’t Got Nobody”, “Once in a Lifetime”. And the kicker to this particular list is that each one has a link to the full video, so you don’t just have to dredge up memories of what the video looked like; you get to actually kick back and relive it. That’s what really pushes the list into the “awesome” territory.

Now of course everyone has their own favorite pet videos that were left off the list. In the comments of the PopWatch article, where I found the link to the list, folks went off with their own ideas on what should have made the list, and that makes for a pretty awesome list of its own. And one guy even built his own post, his Awesome Top 16, with the full videos included just like the original list. And it’s on this list, not Pitchfork’s 100, where you find one of the most awesome of awesome, Tom Petty’s LSD-inspired Alice in Wonderland trip, “Don’t Come Around Here No More”.

Go check them all out.
