Personal Request of the Day

August 6th, 2010 by | Tags:

A while back, my brother Geremy directed a music video for “The Dog Days are Over” by Florence and the Machine. You might recognize that song as the one that plays in the ads for the movie Eat, Pray, Love, the TV show Covert Affairs and a handful of other things. Considering you’re reading this very site and you definitely aren’t the Eat, Pray, Love type, here’s the video to jog your memory.

So why am I bringing this up? Because I’ve been informed that MTV has announced the nominees for the MTV Music Video Awards and “The Dog Days are Over” got nominated four times. On one hand, I was ecstatic for my brother and his success! On the other hand, it means that I’m going to find myself watching MTV in the near future. A fair trade. I guess.

It seems the winners of these shows are done via votes and while Florence is up against the crazy lady with the big nose and the wacky outfits, as well as the angry white rapper who looked so hilariously uncomfortable when performing Letterman’s Top Ten List last month, I thought it couldn’t hurt to ask for at least a couple votes from you guys. Seriously, though, go find that clip of Eminem on Letterman. He did NOT want to be there. It’s amazing.

Video of the Year
Best Rock Video

It’s also nominated for Best Art Direction and Best Cinematography, but those are non-voting categories. They will be decided via games of Pictionary.

In other news, remember that Goldfrapp video he did with the dancing goths? The YouTube comments are so great on it. You have no idea how many people believe it was created by the Illuminati to endorse Satan (so many instances of “Wake up, SHEEPLE!”). I literally had to explain to my brother what the Illuminati even is. Ah, people are funny…

  1. Did you really have to explain to him or have the Gnomes of Zurich already got to him? :raise:

  2. I hadn’t seen that clip of Em on Letterman, before. Thanks, for that. I agree with u.

    I just don’t know whether to feel sorry for him or just be amused that he agreed to do this thing that he obviously didn’t want to do…then did it so poorly.

  3. I love Em but that clip reminds me of Fat Joe on “Wild’n’Out”…if you have seen the show, you should know what you can and can’t do…. it Em’s own fault…

    Besides Marshall has always stuck me as a Conan, George, or Jimmy type guy… Letterman is just so Mid-Life Crisis crowd..lol

  4. Wait… So they are just nominating the 5 most popular artists, and are actually taking the quality of video into account? Weird. I mean, I love Florence and The Machine — the whole album is great — but I wouldn’t consider them a big name.

    Anyway, congrats to your brother, but I don’t think he has a chance to win. May we be pleasantly surprised.
