ON|REPEAT: Vancouver Sleep Clinic

Got this cover of Drake’s “Hold On We’re Going Home” by Vancouver Sleep Clinic & GXNXVS on repeat.

I’m a fan of the original, but this one? This one just soothes the soul so good. Perfect little weekend wind-down.

ALL DAY|EVERY DAY: Dance in Yo Undies Music

Guys, this is pretty much me, in my room, right now:

Juuust dance-dancing with this new favorite “dance in yo undies” song on repeat.  It’s also my “dance while brushing yo teeth”, “dance while making yo morning coffee”, and “dance while driving…anywhere” jam. Haha.

Hey, it’s Friday, so you should probably celebrate by getting in on this too.  You know you want to.

…what rhymes with “hug me”?

MAKING|LOSER|LOOK|GOOD: DANakaDAN

My buddy, DANakaDAN‘s been killing it with the music videos lately.  A fantastically entertaining little mix of humor, humility, old school jams, and geek pride – his latest video, LOSER, with Alexander Jung, had me feeling all kinds of nostalgic…and, damn proud of my nerd-status.  So, what I’m sayin is….check it out.

Also, while we’re talking afterschoolspecial…their video for Dreamers, an ah-mazing visual collaboration of YouTube latest & greatest – Ryan Higa, Cathy Nguyen, Aj Rafael, David Choi, Jennifer Chung, Dawen, Paul Dateh, Instant Noodles Crew, and Wong Fu Productions –  is pretty much my favorite.  It’s all about the epicness of 3:24.  And if the song sounds familiar, it’s because I use it as the opening credits for all my ResLo videos. Fun fact.  Enjoy!
