Gone Daddy Gone

So I recently joined the realm of HD TV with a recent purchase and managed to find myself an over the air broadcast channel that actually plays music videos* and doesn’t really have commercials. Granted the channel, called The Tube, isn’t in HD, but it plays good music. Billy Idol, Green Day, Springsteen, Modest Mouse and Gnarls Barkley (they like their variety).

Anyway, the Barkley video for Gone Daddy Gone, a Violent Femmes remake (aka cover), came on and I loved it. Good rendition of the song and a hilarious video. Enjoy.

First Up… The Original by the Violent Femmes

*Music videos became popular in the 80’s. MTV rode their popularity and became a major TV network brainwashing millions of teenagers into some poor choices regarding their music (and still does). Fortified in it’s position of power, MTV stopped playing videos but somehow still calls itself a music channel even though the vast majority of it’s programming is now based on reality TV (or at least as close to reality as MTV will ever get). They also started M2 to play music videos since MTV(1) wasn’t playing them anymore. M2 stopped playing them as well. Maybe they have an M3 that plays videos? I don’t know.

**With ski season finished (I put the boat away last weekend) I’m still trying the throw a water skiing reference in now and then. Admittedly, this one is weak. Look for a full recap of this summer’s adventures coming soon. Want to know how many sets I took, how many trips to the lake, etc? I want to know and we’ll find out together in a couple days.

BTW, I got a little link happy in the post.
