Thank you, James Gunn.
I mean, to be fair, he did tell us it was coming. Sort of.
But really, from a tweet like that, who would be expecting something like this?
Yes, that’s the director himself, James Gunn, in, well, this masterpiece.
I get this strong feeling that I missed an entire era of world history in which this music video makes any sort of sense. Today, I feel young. But also, a little sad about being young.
Anyway, I thought I would share. I hope you enjoy. And maybe you’ll even get it… But even if not, yeah, that’s most of the cast. Including Sean Gunn, who is apparently James Gunn’s brother!
This month has been an amazing month for things I have been looking forward to – just a lot of things already from my list around New Year’s. The Lego Movie. Lightning Returns. But I’m running out of month, and would like to recommend the other thing I have been enjoying this month: the new album by the Broken Bells, After the Disco.
I found the Broken Bells originally through a circuitous route, following the music of Danger Mouse. I imagine other people have found this band by tracing the other member of the band: James Mercer, lead singer from The Shins. Both are excellent musicians, and they bring their skills together well.
I love their first album, the eponymous Broken Bells, and their EP Meyrin Fields. However, those have been out a couple of years, so old news I guess too. But you should check them out. Several of the songs have music videos, so I will include those below. And now they have a couple of music videos out for After the Disco as well, so you can share in the joy of this album, and see if you like their stuff too. Help me to not have a fandom of one!
