Russ Abbot Triple

Blame a friend on a social network for posting the phrase “I love a party with a happy atmosphere” as the inspiration for this trio of music videos from British comedian and actor Russ Abbot. I’m very sorry. Atmosphere The video that, of course, came to mind where Russ sings about parties with happy atmospheres and his love of them all while sporting a happy and atmospheric party jumper. We’re A Folk Group From...

Tool Triple

You wait ages for any posts with a reference to the word tool and then two come along at once. Hot on the heels of the Ridgid Tools Calendars post comes this trio of music videos from American rock band Tool. Not a lot to say about the videos other than that they seem to perfectly fit the dark, brooding music and the styles of stop motion animation along with bizarre creature make up – the sort of things that wouldn’t look...

Musicians In Movies Triple

A trio of videos showing off musicians who have made the leap from the music industry to the film one. Of course, there are hundreds (probably more) of examples of this sort of thing occurring as the two industries are fairly incestuous but I’ve decided to select just three because that’s what I tend to do when sharing videos. The only criteria I’ve used in narrowing things down is that I must have seen the film and...
