Vid Of The Day: I Forgot

I like this. I can't remember who sent it.. no wait.. I think it was Bubbasmom. But I have no idea who the singer is -- seriously. Anyone know? Tom something.


QOTD: What Do You Collect?

Do you collect anything?

I collect vintage Wacky Packages stickers, talking keychains and Mr. T memorabilia. Sort of. I'm not really that vigilant about it, although I do have tons of Wacky Packages.

How about you?

Cool Ad Of The Day: Zurich Symphony

I like it.


The Internet may have restored music videos to cultural relevance, but up till now, it’s mostly been about elaborate indie dance routines and mustachioed ’70s rockers. With “Roller Coaster,” though, a one-minute TV ad for the Zürich Chamber Orchestra, the agency Euro RSCG Zürich has produced a perfectly splendid video short that brilliantly combines classical music and animation.

The sheet-music staff for the last minute of the fourth movement of Beethoven student Ferdinand Ries’s Second Symphony — those five lines on which the clef signs and notes and rests sit — becomes a roller coaster. As the music builds steam, so does the coaster-cam P.O.V. pick up speed, taking hair-pin turns and swooping down vertiginous drops. The little film manages to make a very familiar piece of the classical repertoire seem exciting and new again.
