I saw this video when it first came out, but I’m not sure why I didn’t lock into my brain at the time. This homage to HelixSnake’s legendary Skate videos is an ironclad example of music video pacing. I’ve said it once, I’ll say it a million times: start with a concept and narrative, expanding both until an overwhelming climax– turn the knob from 1 to 10… And then jump it to 20 in the last half-minute.
Well, I started writing a post about how “the madman is dumping a new gaming-parody mashup every two hours for more than two months” but I now see that SilvaGunner is a collaborative project with its own wiki so I’ma step over that rabbit hole and laugh at the silly tunes.
And then check out public playlists. You’ll see them all in order. Not gonna lie: I got snatched up into some podcasts this past year. My resilient brain is finally succumbing to the blanket of silence draped over my life, and so it’s like I have chatty roommates that I can tune in and out as needed. Plus, singers don’t ever piss me off, and it’s important to experience a full range of emotion.
But the playlists live on. It’s a strange sort of ear journal.

And I’m ordering the Best of 2019 now. Songs are selected, merely need some ordering.
