October 5th, 2011 Videos Of The Week


Now back to our regular show:
LIVE VIDEO OF THE WEEK: "Uprising" by Muse at the Fuji Rock Festival

Muse is always a great live band. Thank you Muse for helping a brother out.

"Uprising" is the Muse song for Guitar Hero: Warriors Of Rock. It's really simple, but I think it ties into the game thematically, with the whole RISE AGAINST THE BEAST thing.

MUSIC VIDEO OF THE WEEK: "Red Flag" by Billy Talent

What does the red flag mean anyway? Politically it's been used to signal Socialism or leftist politics in general, which confuses me as an American, since the Right leaning states are known as "Red States".

However, it's also been used to signal danger, and I think that's what the red flag mean in this video. Not starting a "socialist revolution", but warning that if things keep the way there are, we're going to be in some seriously deep shit.

"Like the smallest bee packs a sting,
Like the pawn checkmates a king,
We'll attack at the crack of dawn."

If the pawn were smart he would have bootstrapped his way to be a king.

Quick call back to last week: continuing my comparisons between Occupy Wall Street and Chanology, I remembered the point at which I said "This just might work!" (for Chanology)

It was the May after it first began, a video in which the head of Scientology in New York told a bunch of protestors "I smell pussy; you in particular" (5:34 in the video)

Now I had the motivation that the people they're protesting are assholes:

Those are police officers leading the group into the middle of the Brooklyn Bridge, where they arrest 700 protestors. Apparently they had "a guy" warn them, but that was for 700 people.

To help them out, J.P. Morgan Chase donated $4.6 million to the NYPD.

Then someone decides to post this on the Chicago Board Of Trade:

You fuckers.

P.S. PROTIP: If a Ron Paul supporter has his sign saying Ron Paul 2012, tell that guy now is not the time.
