Sometimes you just gotta. Easier said than done on many occasions. On a Monday morning, it’s especially good to repeat this mantra to yourself. 😉

Not only am I big fan of Queens of the Stone Age, but I’m also a fan of classic motion picture animation. This video is reminiscent of some animation techniques used by such famous animated film directors such as Ralph Bakshi and Don Bluth. The technique is referred to as rotoscoping where animation was actually traced over live-action movements.

This particular instance was probably done entirely on the computer, but the effect is quite similar. You’ll probably notice some similarities between this video and the classic Ralph Bakshi film, American Pop. I wouldn’t be surprised if this music video was done as a throwback to this film and/or this era of early 80’s animation. (See also Rock and Rule and Heavy Metal.)

This video is graphically striking and appeals to both the designer and illustrator in me, not to mention it’s also a pretty rockin’ tune.

Hope you enjoyed the little animation lesson, I hope you enjoy the tune, and lastly—I hope you have a good start to your work week!

Peace and hairgrease!


I’ve decided to make this a regular feature, because everyone needs a little pick me up to start the work week. Nahmean?

I’ll change it up quite a bit musically from week to week, primarily because I have schizophrenic music tastes. Last week I brought you the Deftones, but this week…we need to start the week with a jam.

From the hey day of Bad Boy Entertainment it’s, Faith Evans with Love Like This. It’s an almost old school jam now (1998), with an older school jam tucked in.

Strap on your roller skates if you wanna rock, but if you’re at your desk…then do The Wop!

Dedicate this to the one you love. (Note: Much more effective when read with a Don Cornelius or Barry White voice.) 😉

Peace and hairgrease!


This Music Monday I needed a little jolt of energy to start the work week. I went to college in the 90’s, and one of my favorite bands back in the day was the Deftones (and still are). I listen to all different types of music (hip-hop, r&b, punk, pop, rock, etc.), but I certainly have a place in my heart for metal.

If you’re an old fan of the Deftones and have been curious about their new album: my recommendation? Pick it up. I think it’s a return to form for them. So without further ado, soak in the trademark “soothing brutality” of the Deftones with Diamond Eyes. Enjoy! And Happy Monday!
