Oh MY GAWD.

I know there’s so many posts today, but this is so frakin’ contagious. It is a bit unsettling to put Hanson and the word “dancing” in the same sentence, but this song is just… so… damn catchy. I can’t even remember the lyrics, but I want to clap my hands and learn the dance. I am suspecting I am so totally buying the album next month.

Also, maybe not a candidate for Breakthrough video… but definitely a candidate for Music Video with Dance in It… I might just not give it a choreography title, but it’s a dance video nonetheless~~~

Does anyone feel back in the 90s with this?

There, I said it.

Look, I love Jakey G. but Prince of Persia was a joke. This is coming from someone who isn’t even a hardcore fan of the video game. Yeah, I used to play it on my cousin’s computer back in DOS system. LOL

Below the break, possible spoilers~ you’ve been warned.

Sands of Time introduces Dastan as a kid living in the streets saving another street kid from being punished by the King (Sharaman) ‘s men… so of course, the King sees something special in him and takes him home. Flash forward years, and Dastan — now a hot-looking Prince — and his brothers are about to take on a city that is supposed to be dealing weapons to the Persian’s enemies [hint: weapons of mass destruction].

In their looting, Dastan gets a dagger… THE Dagger (with capital D), which the princess of the city, Tamina, was trying to protect. After the murder of his father the King, Dastan is accused of being the perpetrator, and flees the city with Tamina as sort of hostage and help… but of course, Dastan didn’t do it! So he must clear his name, with the help of the Dagger, which uses some magical sand to turn back time.

Unlike the poster (and set of posters), Sands of Time looks very orange. It actually starts with a full shot of a sunrise — or was it a sunset set backwards? — anyway, it was all very reminiscing of Aladdin, so I began singing Arabian Nights in my head… or maybe I did a bit out loud. The caption, set in Papyrus, said something like two people linked together in time — I thought they might have been talking about KidDastan and the other street kid, but seeing as the other kid was left behind when Dastan was adopted… alas, it’s probably Dastan and the Princess whose city he’s about to ransack.

I have never enjoyed Beyonce’s music, ever since she began her solo stuff, but then again… a lot of people seem to like her when I read stuff online. I think it’s funny no one I know really likes her music.

Anyway, apparently… this is new stuff. And Beyonce here looks totally committed to the look. I don’t like the song, but the style of the video is nifty. However, with videos like OK Go’s This Too Shall Pass, and M.I.A’s Born Free – I doubt this particular one has any chance of making it to the list of Best Music Videos this year.

Just saw her on an interview with Jonathan Ross, an even though she used some of the same jokes. This clip is worth the watch, if you’ve never seen her. Oh, those whores of Babylon~

Animation Story Artist Josh Cooley (from Pixar’s Ratatouille and Up fame) is releasing a book in a very stylish a la Pixar concept art about grown up films. Perhaps the kiddies will just not get the movie references on this one.
