'ville.2k - antville votes the best music videos of the decade!

The nominees are in - now cast your votes for best/landmark/most memorable/top 50 music videos of the 2000s. All entries are u2b-linked (or similar) for ease of reference; please stick to 30 minimum votes, and 50 max. Voting's open until midnight, Thursday Oct. 1st.
Much cred to kalstark, otc, hipgnosist, otha star, c-dub, familiar and Bunny Greenhouse for linking duties.
NB: due to technical limitations, the one poll's been split into several - pay no heed to percentages, therefore, just number of votes.

my name is legion, September 28, 2009 8:54:26 AM CEST

cast me vote
'scar tissue' is 99 and kano's vid's 'hustleR', and not 'hustle'

vidbot, September 28, 2009 9:27:25 AM CEST

FC Kahuna - Hayling, Lynn Fox version is on but the Hardstaff version isn't?

Thats a bit smelly.

Dunno about this, ten years is a long time and im seeing an awful lot of videos from the last few years.

Perhaps some people with vested interest have been very busy.

Click click click, new user name click click click......

progosk, September 28, 2009 9:36:24 AM CEST

vidbot: did you nominate hardstaff's? if not, do let's avoid bickering, k?
legion: duly noted, thx.

bloooooooody oath

captainhairy, September 28, 2009 2:51:32 PM CEST

seems like not all my votes are getting counted when i click 'vote'. my vote for Alias - sixes last didn't register for example..? is there a delay?

tommy514, September 28, 2009 6:55:49 PM CEST

How many videos are on the list please?

progosk, September 28, 2009 7:19:00 PM CEST

430, tommy.

tommy514, September 28, 2009 8:10:27 PM CEST

La videotheque show support to Video Antville!

familiar, September 28, 2009 8:32:30 PM CEST

Prog -- great work on this. Thank you.

progosk, September 28, 2009 9:58:50 PM CEST

erm, 9 vote penalty for MSTRKRFT... (sorry, vince)

0ptical, September 29, 2009 12:36:13 AM CEST

Overload... and I'm just around the middle of the list. Some nice old ones worth revisiting, a few great new ones, nice surprises.
Btw, the link for Van Helden's 'In your eyes' is cut short a couple seconds, and those few frames are the cherry on top.

kalstark, September 29, 2009 12:46:29 AM CEST

Thanks very much for doing this Progosk!


progosk, September 29, 2009 1:50:01 AM CEST

"Kev: Lauryn Hill and D'angelo are '99"
eliminated. change should show up in a few minutes.

otha star, September 29, 2009 5:38:23 AM CEST

This is the part of the story where my favourites die a slow agonizing death of unpopularity. Oh well, it's been fun anyway.

Thanks to Progosk and the rest of the antvillains for all of the submissions.

progosk, September 29, 2009 10:15:02 PM CEST

friends of Joel Trussel: i saw what you did there. 6 point penalty (so far).

jim brownski, September 29, 2009 10:23:29 PM CEST

Sincere apologies, progosk. Someone pointed this out to me and I didn't read the details. I got all excited and blogged all over myself. Tis an honor and only wish to play fair. One day I'll learn the rules of the internetting.

Thanks for the surprising nomination anyhow.

progosk, September 29, 2009 10:37:38 PM CEST

greets&compliments, anyhoo.

tommy514, September 30, 2009 6:55:01 AM CEST

Here is my choice:

Great work guys!

najork, September 30, 2009 11:25:39 PM CEST

This is exhausting. Bad idea to cut stuff off at midnight, since it becomes unclear what day you are talking about, and no time-zone indicated either.

Surprised Jamelia ain't on here.
And no Rosenrot either.
Isn't Muscle Museum 99?

progosk, October 1, 2009 1:16:04 AM CEST

don't tell me you're re-watching every one, otc
in any case, do let me know when you're done, so i can close this up. oh, and, you're right, muscle museum is nov 99 - eliminated.

progosk, October 1, 2009 1:19:05 AM CEST

re: missed ones - given the shitstorm it kicked up on the 'ville, interesting that johan's oceans got nary a nom. others?

kalstark, October 1, 2009 2:38:22 AM CEST

Damn, forgot about Jamelia's SIIABE. Love that vid... Maybe for the 25 years of 2000 awards...

By the by, are you shuttin' er' down at 12:00am EST Progosk?


otc, October 1, 2009 2:59:24 AM CEST

I just assumed someone would nominate Johan, otherwise I would of put it in mine. An oversight for sure. I already submitted my votes, I'm pretty sure they went through although I didn't check the votecounts.

progosk, October 2, 2009 1:39:22 AM CEST

closing remarks: pretty impressive turnout: 50 voters!
krozm earns 3 late penalty points for an unjustified lurch in the last lap, and stress' late jump is also a little suspicious, but evidence is inconclusive. all in all, with three minor incidents, seems to me this went alright.
now where are the data analysts? highest ranking artist? which top ranks are due to recency? most honoured director? test-of-time award?
i'll mull the cut-off point, and will get around to posting results in a couple of days. thanks all - it's been exhausting but cool.

najork, October 2, 2009 3:49:22 AM CEST

is the xls pending double checking? I noticed the sigur ros section seemed to be switched around from the votes

beep, October 2, 2009 5:14:13 AM CEST

Progosk, I am from krozm and in some possible explanation about the leap towards the end of voting. The three of us only discovered this pole the other day. Obviously we voted for our own video as I am sure most other directors did. So possibly these three votes which were towards the end of the pole would account for a leap? Thats cool though if those three votes are counted as a penalty. I guess technically we did vote for ourselves but I don't believe there is anything suspicious about that.
Anyway thanks for doing all this, we enjoyed looking through some old favourite videos.

kind regards

progosk, October 2, 2009 8:00:35 AM CEST

naj: a doublecheck would be much appreciated. beep: 's cool.

najork, October 4, 2009 3:08:14 AM CEST

prog: I gave it a once-over. Did not notice any other discrepancies, but the Sigur Ros songs are still misaligned. Noticed allot of scores I find baffling, but that's to be expected.

budget, October 5, 2009 3:42:20 AM CEST

Was there some sort of official rule in regards to directors voting/director's encouraging others to vote? If so, why? it seems odd to penalize this.

progosk, October 5, 2009 6:57:00 AM CEST

erm... methinks that to gauge a general consensus, rather than to see who has the most zealous fanclub, was kinda the point of this, - no?
in any case, stay tuned for officialdom...
