somebody that i used to know

Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
I told myself that you were right for me
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it’s an ache I still remember

You can get addicted to a certain kinda sadness
Like resignation to the end, always the end
So when we found that we could not make sense
Well you said that we would still be friends
But I’ll admit that I was glad that it was over

But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make it like it never happened and that we were nothing
I don’t even need your love, but you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough

No, you didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records
And then change your number
Guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

Now you’re just somebody that I used to know
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
But had me believin it was always something that I’d done

But I don’t wanna live that way
Reading into every word you say
You said that you could let it go
And I wouldn’t catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know-oh-oh

But you didn’t have cut me off
Make it like it never happened and that we were nothing (oh)
I don’t even need your love, but you treat me like a stranger
and that feels so rough

(oh)

No, you didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect you records
And then change your number (oh)
Guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

Somebody that I used to know
Somebody (now your just somebody that I used to know)
That I used to know
Somebody that I used to know
Somebody (somebody) (now your just somebody that I used to know)
That I used to know

I used to know
That I used to know
I used to know
Somebody

“Somebody That I Used to know” by Gotye (featuring Kimbra)

white rabbit_jefferson airplane

One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you
Don’t do anything at all
Go ask Alice, when she’s ten feet tall

And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you’re going to fall
Tell ’em a hookah smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call
To call Alice, when she was just small

When the men on the chessboard get up
And tell you where to go
And you’ve just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving low
Go ask Alice, I think she’ll know

When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead
And the white knight is talking backwards
And the red queen’s off with her head
Remember what the dormouse said
Feed your head, feed your head

(“White Rabbit” by Jefferson Airplane)

This is seriously soo funny.  I’m pretty sure i watched it atleast 20 times already.  Best video ever.

“guess what i do for adventure? i hangglide with a dorito”
“one time i looked at a diamond and it gave me a sunburn”
“well you know what they say, lint is a shell’s best friend”
“come here, come here, commmme heeerrree….errr….ILOVE YOU…come heere ah”

dancing elves update

Thought of these elves randomly when I was looking down at Union Square today and decided to figure out why they were here back then. (pic is from the earlier post I had on the dancing elves to jog your memories).  I had heard a rumor that it was for an Office Max commercial at that time, but never saw them on TV or anything.  Turns out it was for Office Max and the promotion of the website, Elfyourself.com.  The video of the routine is above.

Too funny…haha…props to whoever it was for organizing that many people in elf suits and getting them to dance at the same time!

Beautiful performance at the “Hope for Haiti Now” Telethon.  Performed by Matt Morris and Justin Timberlake

tim burton exhibit_moma_ny

Went to check out the Tim Burton Exhibit at the MOMA last weekend and it was pretty awesome.  Only pic I really got was one of the entry (above) before I was told there were no pics allowed.  The entry is definitely a good taste of the craziness inside.  My favorite character was Stainboy (below) with his superhero S on his chest and little cape.  My favorite chapter/episode of Stainboy was the one with where he wards off the toxic boy with a pine tree air freshener (video included below, keep scrolling).  All of the chapters are played on screens as you walk down a dark, black and white striped hallway leading to the rest of the exhibit. 

Lots of sketches and watercolors. Notes to people like Johnny Depp during filming.  Costumes and props as well, including the Edward Scissorhands costume, Batman masks, Catwoman suit, Angora sweater from the movie Ed Wood, etc.  Lots of figures from movies like, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,  Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride, Beetlejuice.  Some video media spread throughout.  Really good collection of work from Tim Burton not from his famous movies–sketches and watercolors of crazy creatures and characters he created in his spare time.  Good mix of stuff people/fans are familiar with and plenty of new stuff most have probably never seen. 

On show at the MOMA in nyc until April 26,2010.  Well worth it! 

(just fyi, I think you need to purchase tickets ahead of time for a particular time slot the day you wish to go because of it’s popularity.  If you have a membership card to the MOMA, you can just walk right in)

LOLrio KART

Now I can race like in Mario Kart!!  This video is so cool.  MIT students built the LOLrio KART out of a shopping cart with upgraded wheels, NiCd aircraft batteries, and a 15hp brushless motor.  It can reach up to speeds of 45 mph!  Where can I get mine so I can start racing?

“hoedown” from rodeo suite (animation)

Stop motion animation with classical music score, “Hoedown”, from “Rodeo Suite” by composer, Aaron Copland.  The video was made by Eleanor Stewart.  It’s a pretty cool stop motion.  Love how the characters come out of the sheet music.  Most of you will recognize the music once you get a little ways into.  Very fun!!
