isn't that just all of them basically? it's more fun if you do a top five list or something

GoodTimes(?) Rx Bandits "...And The Battle Begun" Dir. Adam Thomson Knight Music "Green River Killer" Dir. Daniel Eskils Why? "Gemini (Birthday Song)" Dir. Christopher Louie Ebony Bones "Don't Fart on My Heart" Dir: TEAR Parka "Disco Dancer" Dir. OneInThree
honestly now. I like P.Daughters as much as the rest of you, but that "Hot Knives" video shouldn't really be on any "top" list. Dougal's video for Bat for Lashes gets my top vote this month for sure.
I'll bounce the hatorade off to Prog's listing of the Common vid, which was nothing new given vids like Mama Said Knock You Out (!) and Hella Good.
Bat for Lashes was my favorite.
Other videos I thought were great were Blue State's Allies and Klaxons' It's Not Over Yet.
I also agree with freshhead, the Bright Eyes video was pretty bland, not really feeling that one.
