Video Revisionism: Melon's "Come Together" 
by Lenka Reznicek [permalink] 
I don't know about you, but I'm in the mood for something light-hearted today to balance the predominant doom-and-gloom of my last few postings. Last night we attended an ACLU gathering, "Blocking the Way to the Altar," at the Chicago Historical Society, and while the speakers (including Illinois 13th District State Representative Larry McKeon] were interesting and cautiously optimistic, I came away with a less positive feeling about the 'state of the state', if you know what I mean.

Anyhoo, this is really neat: Melon sets the Beatles' "Come Together" to flashy-but-simple psychedelic perpetually-shifting animated images of John, Paul, George and Ringo [.swf animation, high-speed connection recommended]...somehow it seems just perfect for the song, giving it a cheery retro space-cadet feel. Where else can you see the Fab Four spinning in giant teacups, swinging in unison and riding go-karts? [via kaliber 10k]
