Perhaps the most beautiful music video I've seen: Death Cab for Cutie - I Will Follow You into the Dark (FLV). So deeply sad, hopeful, wistful, melancholic, and loving.

mycroftb just introduced me to the I Can Eat Glass Project: 'The Project is based on the idea that people in a foreign country have an irresistable urge to try to say something in the indigenous tongue. In most cases, however, the best a person can do is "Where is the bathroom?" a phrase that marks them as a tourist. But, if one says "I can eat glass, it doesn't hurt me," you will be viewed as an insane native, and treated with dignity and respect.'

Make random Sam & Max stuff, win stuff! And there are new S&M goodies to peruse in Telltale's store, including a spiffy b&w sketchbook, "The Age of S&M", and a Max skull & crossbones shirt.

'This is Steve's first Sam & Max book in about 10 years, and it's full of never before seen concepts, doodles, and other Freelance Police-related works of art. Some of our favorite parts are the inside-cover sketches of Sam & Max, along with notations, that Steve made as guidelines for the people doing the animated series, and the list of lines and scenarios that the censors cut from the episodes. (Example: "Please do NOT show Max biting down on a battery while standing in water.")'

In the US government's tireless efforts to protect the American populace from foreign threats, its citizens are now free from the risk of Vegemite.
I'm not a biiig fan of DCFC so I haven't seen that video before. But it is indeed beautiful!
I've just ordered this DVD :3

I also found out that the director of the video is Monkmus, and you can also see it here:
Oooh! I'll be putting that on my Christmas list. Though as I mentioned, I wonder how often I'd be able to watch that video.. still, it'd also be interesting to see what the others on the DVD are like. I've heard of DCfC plenty of times, but this might be the first track I've really heard of theirs, at least knowingly. (Discounting the track which gave rise to their name, of course =:)

And Monkmus has supplied a commentary for it! Marvellous. I'll give that a try this afternoon. I'm wondering what their inspiration for the visual style was, in particular.
