In honour of my graduation tomorrow, and the discovery of everything that is good and bad about the internet, I present Rock-afire Explosion‘s “cover” of Arcade Fire’s “Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)”:
Yeah, uh … yeah. Strangely hypnotic and also, of course, terrifying. Thanks(?) to Bob Mackey for this knowledge.
Believe it or not, this is not simply laziness in place of something real (laziness is not posting anything for the majority of a month). I think that this video represents what the internet is designed for: sometimes you see something so simply, incredibly weird that it has to be passed along. A lot of the things that I look at on the internet are “discovered” by other people; I lead a second or third hand existence on the computer because I don’t have the patience to sift through all of the noise to get to the crux of the matter. Most of the time, I don’t even see what other people have brought to my attention.
Youtube, to me, represents time, and while I can devote hours to a video game, a movie, a TV series, somehow giving just five or six minutes to a video on the internet seems just like so much effort. Still, singing bears with soulless eyes can somehow pierce me to the core.
