Powerful Stuff

I am presently suffering from what you might call the day job blues. I have done what is conceivably a week and a half's worth of wholly work-related recording, editing and production over the past three days alone. That's the kind of shit that tends to eat into one's blogging time.

But I think I've found a way to atone for my sins, to make up for my neglect of you, faithful denizens of the internet -- with more music videos.

Not just any vids, mind you, but two brand new visual feasts from my homies The ThoughtCriminals and Illbotz. Moreover, these feature two of your very favoritist things:


And also Jenny Lewis!

I Catch a Glimpse of Evil Light

Jim, Kyle and the rest of the Kirby Krackle Experience are currently in the studio working on their third album, and I couldn't be more excited. Well, I imagine I could, but not without markedly more erotic undertones.

Of course that doesn't mean the guys have abandoned their legacy material. In fact a new video from their triumphant sophomore release E for Everyone, easily my geek rock album of the year for 2010, has just surfaced. It's for Green Lantern tribute track "Ring Capacity," and the animation was again ably handled by Betsy Lee. (You may remember her work from the "Up, Up, Down, Down" video.)

Peep the embed below, and remember it's not too late to throw your support behind the movement to get this song on the official soundtrack for the Green Lantern movie. Okay, maybe it's a little too late, but hope springs eternal!
