Videos of the Week October 9th

This week was a downright exciting mix of videos. There was no rhyme, reason or discernible pattern to the top five, but on the flip side that created an awesome variety. Leading the way was Sam Smith's new video for the upcoming James Bond Spectre theme. The mix of clips from the movie, orchestral instrumentation and of course, Sam's stellar vocals created a dramatic aesthetic. Along similar lines was Kygo and Ella Henderson's BBC Radio 1 live cover of Taylor Swift's Wildest Dreams. Love Kygo on the piano live and you'd be hard pressed to convince me that the original is much better than the cover.

And just in case the first two videos delve too much into real life, Skrillex went all anime with the help of California based visual artist Roboto. I've always loved Ease My Mind, so it's cool to see it finally get a visual story attached to it. If you're a fan for really out-there festivals, you'll enjoy the behind the scenes look at the Gathering of the Juggalos. It was interesting to hear Flosstradamus's take on the gathering as a whole being more communal than they thought it would be. Of course last but not even close to the least, there's the dangerous and underrated-ly beautiful Ronda Rousey. I really hope she and Floyd "Woman beater" Mayweather get a chance to have it out at some point. Until then, I'm going to continue to try and reconcile how someone so physically threatening could be anywhere near that attractive...#Rousey
