Well, Banksy has done it again. This time, he has taken his political commentary to a television show that often holds up a mirror facing back at the viewer. Although, The Simpsons has been up and down over the last few years, they always seem to poke fun at Fox broadcasting and that makes this liberal-commie-Marxist-socialist-elitist-wacko San Franciscan smirk every time. You betcha!. The Simpsons creators let Banksy direct the opening sequence with a two-way mirror that must be unsettling to the Fox executives because they have been on a rampage of removing the video from sites left and right. It needs no explanation here because it’s what all of us know every time we shop for cheap goods but try not to think about.

It’s Monday morning madness and this is a crazy video directed by Valerie Pirson for the 1974 song Bubble Sex by The Disco Chicken Project was the first item in my inbox.
Noisia – Machine Gun
Have you have ever watched old episodes of The Addams Family on TV and wondered what was in the box that the disembodied hand, better known as Thing, popped out of? Well this video, by Dutch electronic band Noisia, might give you a clue. Warning to my vegetarian and vegan friends, this is a meat eater video and might make you wanna go out and throw blood on some animal-wearing fashionista. Also, I don’t particularly like the song, it’s a little too head bangin’ for me but if you really want a visual WTF, then turn it down and play a Mariah Carey or Miley Cyrus song with it. I bet Thing would totally be down with those two awful creatures.
