Song of the Day

“I Just Don’t Know What To Do With Myself” by White Stripes.

I was excited to discover that Sophia Coppola directed the video for this song and that it featured Kate Moss. But the video, which in its entirety features Kate playing stripper on a pole, is so surprisingly boring (not safe for work, obvi). I expect better from everyone involved.

Do you expect better from your favorite hip-hop videos where they do the bump-and-grind and flash gang signs ?

If they’re directed by Sophia Coppola, yes.

I think the source material to begin with is flawed. But different strokes, etc.

You could be my black Kate Moss tonight. I’ll get you a pole.

I think that the glorification of gang culture within the hip-hop/rap world is disgusting, regardless of whom is directing the videos.

Oh c’mon. Did Johnny Cash glorify prison culture? Did Eliot Smith make it cool to be depressed and suicidal? Rap gets an unfair share of criticism.

Jim Varney made it cool to talk to invisible friends.

Please tell me you’re kidding.
Hip-hop/rap don’t get enough criticism for their glorification of gang culture.

Name another kind of music that gets Congressional hearings.

But she directed Virgin Suicides and Lost in Translation, two very good movies (I like the former a lot better than the latter, though). She wasn’t acting in this video, she was directing.
