22. Patti Smith - Smells Like Teen Spirit

Sunday 30 March 2008 at 12:50 pm Patti SmithTechnically speaking this one shouldn't even be here, as - although it is on YouTube - it is not a video. However, since the song is so awesome, I won't let such minor technicalities prevent me from posting this.

Patti Smith, often called the "Godmother of punk" or "poet laureate of punk", takes the Nirvana classic Smells Like Teen Spirit and adds her own personal touch. Thus she provides us with an amazingly heart-felt song that shows both respect to Kurt Cobain, and is a masterpiece on its own. Beautiful, yet effective.

21. Kuvia Suomesta - Images from Finland

Saturday 29 March 2008 at 10:53 am Kuvia Suomesta - Images from FinlandKuvia Suomesta - Images from Finland is an ad for a website selling photographs of the Finnish landscape and way of life. The video features two photographers prepared to take shots of a true Finnish phenomena.

20. Korpiklaani - Wooden Pints

Friday 28 March 2008 at 11:39 pm Korpiklaani - Wooden PintsKorpiklaani is a Finnish folk metal band that mixes traditional Finnish music with hard metal, and dress the result with lyrics that are both nationalistic and funny as hell. Amazingly enough, it works, and the result is both unique and fun. Wooden Pints is my current favourite; on the video, pay attention to the insane drummer and the slightly less enthusiastic violin player!

19. Red and Black

Friday 28 March 2008 at 09:20 am Czerwone i CzarneRed and Black (or Czerwone i Czarne, as the original title goes) is a Polish animation masterpiece from 1963 by the celebrated animator Witold Giersz. The art and technique used here are amazingly high class, and the story itself very entertaining and funny with numerous twists and surprises. This short film was included on The Anthology of Polish Animation DVD published last year (of which I happen to have a copy, thanks to my friend Agata).

This clip has a bit of English narration at the beginning and the end. Sorry about it, I could not find a version without it and I didn't feel like ripping the video from my DVD. The narration doesn't reduce the value of the clip, though.

18. Vincent

Thursday 27 March 2008 at 11:36 pm VincentVincent is a short stop-animation flick by Tim Burton, the mastermind behind such animation masterpieces as The Nightmare Before Christmas and Corpse Bride, and cinema blockbusters like Sleepy Hollow, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Sweeney Todd. Created in 1982, Vincent is one of Burton's first. His trademark, the quirky horror-theme, is already present, and the subtle sense of wicked humour shines through. Excellent!

17. Tommy Tiernan

Sunday 23 March 2008 at 12:33 am Tommy TiernanTommy Tiernan is an Irish stand-up comedian that Kasia has been listening to for hours and hours lately. I must give the guy credit, he is really very good. Here's one clip on which he speaks about his children; it's one of Kasia's favourites!

16. Nick Cave & The Black Seeds - The Weeping Song

Saturday 22 March 2008 at 11:38 pm The Weeping SongNick Cave is one of the most creative and talented song writers and artists that I know of. With the band Bad Seeds he has done numerous albums of awesome music, and I'm convinced that this video page is going to feature lots of their stuff. The Weeping Song is one of the many awesome tunes they have produced, and the video with Nick himself and Blixa Bargeld is great too. Enjoy!
