Koyaanisqatsi by King Crimson

This is one of those serendipitous finds that is a little bit too Meppy for coincidence’s sake. Here we have footage from Mep favorite Koyaanisqatsi set to music from progressive rock band, King Crimson, which just happens to be one of the major influences of The Road.

When you want to get a song stuck in your head.

I’m a bit late to the party on this, but something this absurdly awesome really has no expiration date.  Next question: what’s it going to take to get this to the top 40?

Oh No… Ono!

There has been a great deal of sickness, sadness, and strife in Mep Land recently. I don’t feel the need to get into grizzly details as of yet, but hopefully you will excuse the lack of posting as a consequence of that.

In an effort to distract you, here’s a dazzling video entitled ‘Internet Warrior’ by Oh No Ono.

Kool and the Gang’s got nothing.

Sure, the World Cup is over, but that doesn’t mean the soccer/football fun has to stop.  And if you’re Icelandic and spending your time watching your country try to avert bankruptcy, I guess you’ve got to get your fun somehow…

Eat My Bananas

I’m sure there is some kind of sexual innuendo going on here, but I can’t resist the opportunity to post another French, abstract, music video.
