We're just going to pretend that I didn't disappear for like, 4 months. Rofl. But I'm back like Britney with a brand spanking new layout. Check it out and tell me what you think. Don't be shy. ;)
While it's no longer new, the Black Eyed Peas video for their latest single "Just Can't Get Enough" ranks high on my Obsessions of the Moment list. Shot in Japan just days before the disaster, the video takes us on a flashy trip that showcases the bright lights of Japan nightlife.
It all starts with a jarringly, melancholy chorus sung by who else but the BEP's resident hook dropper, Fergie,
who muses out of the floor-to-ceiling windows of a luxury hotel. Cut to Will.I.Am musing out of the window of a taxi cab on it way to, well that's never quite determined. But he's rich so it must be important, right? Anyway, later we're treated to cut scenes of intimate performances, glamor shots of Fergie, and, well that's it really. Oh and the other guy from BEP does some aimless wandering as well.
While not action packed, I'm not going to lie, the video is memorizing. With the intentional, slightly shaky camera work, soft focus, and renegade style of film shooting that we've all come to love ('cause it's so #fresh & #edgy) it's beyond easy to mentally escape to a world filled with sensational nights of having nothing in particular to do documented by one of your "photographer" best friends who is just bursting the the need to capture every moment of your young and carefree lives.
That, and you know, the song is just so pretty.
So, let me know:
