The Shoes “Time To Dance”

Monday, March 12th, 2012
Jake Gyllenhaal gets bloodlusty in the new music video "Time To Dance" by The Shoes Electro pop duo, The Shoes, have released an eight minute video that stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a psycho killer. The track "Time To Dance" provides the soundtrack to Jake's murderous sprees in clubs, in the woods, in back alleys and at costume parties. It's one part music video and one part short film. Daniel Wolfe directed "Time To Dance" which premiered today on Noisey, Vice's YouTube music channel. Check out some "Time to Dance" stills and watch the video to see Jake Gyllenhaal's performance below.

M.I.A. “Bad Girls” Video

Friday, February 3rd, 2012
M.I.A.'s new video for "Bad Girls" from Director Romain Gavras M.I.A.'s new video for "Bad Girls" premiered this morning and was created with French Director Romain Gavras, the creative visionary responsible for  MIA's iconic "Born Free" video that infamously emblazoned ginger genocide into the mainstream public eye. After watching this video it's clear that something big happens when M.I.A. and Gavras get together. Shot in Ouarzazate, Morocco--the same place Lawrence of Arabia was shot in the '60's--these "Bad Girls" are the female vanguard of Saudi drag racing gangs wreaking havoc in their fleet of 90's BMWs. Watching M.I.A. file her nails, decked out in crazy fashion, perched on top of a white M3 as it skis (drives on two wheels) across the Moroccan desert, it's hard to find another word than "epic" to describe it. Bad girl armies in the Middle Eastern desert? This video has all the stylistic success that Beyonce's "Who Run The World" didn't have. Though that may have more to do with the perceived authenticity ascribed to M.I.A. by virtue of her political voice and activism about her Saudi identity or to the superior production of Gavras' team than anything that came directly from MIA. Regardless, "Bad Girls" has an irony that Beyonce's foray into Middle Eastern military imagery couldn't achieve. As far as the music, M.I.A.'s producer Danja reworked the first version of the track that was released on her Vicki Leekx mixtape and we have a feeling this might be her biggest banger in a while. Radio and club audiences love M.I.A.'s one-liners and it seems safe to say that "My chain hits my chest" is something that will be hollered by many-a-fan in the same way as "I fly like paper, get high like planes." Watch the video for M.I.A.'s "Bad Girls" below and tell us what you think.

ROUND UP

Collecting like an agency so you can relax... weird? 2 Broke Girls, a show that celebrates hating hipsters, is getting a lot of flack for being racist. [Grantland] Easy Peasy, girl. [Jezebel] When shit gets real. [Tracie Egan] Hey, NYC kids. Get into this or get dead. [CRAZY SPIRIT] Who knew a football star who believed in God could be such a big deal and spread purity like the wild fire is has proven to be? [GOOD] Speaking of purity, Mish talks to some virgins (and one born-again virgin) and their ethics of purity. #theWasteCoast [VICE] And Rachel Bilson is now a grill wearing rapper/baby delivering doctor. Too bad she can't deliver the rhymes. [Refinery 29]

ROUND UP

"Where have you been living, under a stupid rock?" Alleged murderer Casey Anthony (or "Tot Mom") decides she is just like everybody else and gets herself a YouTube video diary. [HLN] We're surprised it took VICE this long to snag sex-pert and dick connoisseur, Alexyss K. Tyler. Seriously, guys. #penispower [VICE] Super weird news, but Kanye West went on another Twitter rant. We know, right? Totally shocking. #DONDA [National Post] Why is President Obama promoting fast food fish filets? [Buzz Net] This video is funny, but we'd like to think us girls eat more than a "gust of wind" for breakfast (though a gust of wind is, like, super, duper filling, y'all.) [Harvard Sailing Team] Undercover pricks. [XO Jane] "Shit Girls Say" inspired something new "Shit White Girls Say To Black Girls." Some love it, some find it offensive. [GOOD]

[Vice] Speaking of Vice, our editor Mish's new column, "Waste Coast" premiered this week. [Vice] Why wouldn't this transgender boy be allowed to join Girl Scouts and doesn't she know that Girl Scouts kinda sucks? She could do better. [Nerve] Dallas Women's Museum set to close in October due to the issue of $1.3 million. Andrea Grimes has something to say about this. [Hay Ladies] THIS is Project Runway's Sexiest Shoe for 2011?

We collect the goods so you don't have to. Click click. Are these new runway super models reincarnations of iconic beauty queens past?
