There are f****n brilliant music videos out there. But today I found the best of them all: Complicated Universal Cum is the name of the band, that proved that you don’t need to spend a fortune on a video to make it a brilliant one. They didn’t even need a cutter!

One scene. One take. No cut.

Damnit! Who’s that genius who thought of that?

Four minutes of two beautiful girls kissing. So simple. So awesome. And this is why you get that if you’re not logged into youtube:

Es ist Februar. Das Jahr ist noch jung und doch hat es schon sein bestes Konzert gesehen. Die Dave Mattews Band tourte erstmalig nach einer Dekade amerikanisch-nachlässiger Europaignoranz durch Deutschland, und sorgte sowohl in den Konzerthallen der Großstädte, als auch in den Feuilletons der Tageszeitungen für Furore. Herrn Lieberberg sei Dank!

There’s this one guy, Dave, who I met in Canada – a great musician, an inspiring person to sit an talk to over a view beers, an extraordinary poet,  and just a wonderful, wonderful fellow. Working part time assembling cars, he finally left the tracks of a solo career and assembled a band: The warped 45s. Their debut album “10 day poem for Saskatchewan”  has been released recently and here’s the first video clip.

Grand. Just grand.

Although the author of this video is convinced that his idea “wasn’t the most original one in the universe”, I have to say: Bravo! I like the idea quite a bit and what he made of it.

Role models become role models, when you acknowledge them for their actions and for their conscious decision of being a little bit different (mostly better) from the rest – who- or whatever “the rest” is. However, role models need a certain audience to fully become role models in the first place. Only with that audience role models can use their position to influence other people. For instance Beth Ditto of the outstanding band Gossip, who is aware of her function as a role model – for overweight and therefore harassed people. She tries to change things by simply talking about it, hoping but not knowing whether she might succeed in the end.

I always thought of Amy MacDonald to be a good role model for someone who is young, extremely talented but … also way too introvert and unalluring (as in: not fulfilling the mainstream criteria for beauty) to make it in a all idol influenced pop scene – but somehow she did. I love her songs. I like her lyrics a lot and I really find her utterly inspiring. I loved to see her live in concert about a year ago in a pretty small venue. Back then she seemed like a down to earth girl, with an old pair of jeans and Chucks, a shy smile, very charming, with two pounds more on her hips … and a very beautiful voice, authentically performing her songs with a lot of heart to it and soul. That was last year. Unfortunately she gave away her role model status very recently – at least for me…
