Friday Flicks 8.8.14

“it’s hard to stay mad, when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once, and it’s too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst… And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life… You have no idea what I’m talking about, I’m sure. But don’t worry… you will someday”
– American Beauty

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The seven videos below need no description. Blending incredible songs with put-you-on-your-seat images, these immensely powerful music videos are a testament to what “music videos” were made for. I’d love your thoughts on your favorite, or if you have one I should watch. Send me anything via Twitter @logan_stoneman .

I’m speechless. My mind is firing on all cylinders. Without lyrics, Explosions in the Sky partnered with one of the co-directors from Tree of Life and produced one of the best music videos I’ve ever seen in my life. I dare you not to share this with everyone you know.

I can’t even begin to describe the swell of emotion here. Radical Face did it perfectly.

Read the background to this music video. Then watch how Bear’s Den brings terror, youth, and reality to the screen.

Repetitive in nature. Powerful in repetition.

It’s amazing what the undervalued simplicity of a stroll can do for you.

This one is NSFW and should only be watched in the confines of your house…not in a coffee shop like I did. Watch and read the description behind this piece – it is powerful beyond belief, but my warnings are out there. Be careful.

Where my obsession with the power of film & music came from. I seek moments in life which slam the brakes on the rampant & wild thoughts in my head. This is the first one that did exactly that.
