Before he took his wild imagination to the big screen with "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," French director Michel Gondry was best known for his frequent collaborations with Björk, perhaps most memorably on the video for her song "Human Behaviour." Now the two are at it again. Gondry revealed to MTV News that a month from now, he will be directing the music video for "Declare Independence," from the Icelandic singer's latest album, Volta.

well, that was boring and repetitive.
We often went to the cinema, the screen would light up and we would tremble, but also, increasingly often, Madeleine and I were disappointed. The images had dated, they jittered, and Marilyn Monroe had gotten terribly old. We were sad, this wasn't the film we had dreamed of, this wasn't the total film that we all carried around inside us, this film that we would have wanted to make, or, more secretly, no doubt, that we would have wanted to live.

yep.

i thought the same thing and blamed it on watching it at 2am right before i went to bed. now i'm awake (i think) and it's still the same if not worse. poor gondry, poor bjork, they really fucked it up. at least she doesn't look really old like in earth intruders.

oh, can't wait for the defenders. "i like the minimalism/other fucking meaningless buzzword". none of his other videos needed justification. there is an idea here, that's not debatable, the problem is that it goes nowhere. it's lame by any standard.

it's like he had to make it on the cheap with practical effects. this should hav been epic.
endless 'nothing is what it seems'-isms

If you skip ahead a lot and skim through the video, it's pretty cool.

aside from it being relatively static and not as 'epic' as we might have liked to see... did anybody else think it was making a fucked up argument?

the video didn't develop any of its symbols in a way that said anything about independence from the mechanism that was making people zombies... they just became more festive zombies.
Obviously what you are doing right now is called (in my upcoming book of psychology at least) validation. I think it's a normal thing to do. People will reply, say anything, and then you're gonna do what you were subconsciently thinking of doing all along.

Gondry guest edits YouTube
Source: Mark Sweney; guardian.co.uk

YouTube has appointed Michel Gondry, the director of movies including Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Science of Sleep as well as music videos for acts such as The White Stripes, Radiohead and Bjork, as a guest editor.

Gondry, who is curating YouTube.com during the Sundance Film Festival, will follow in the footsteps of Oprah Winfrey and musician and director Rob Zombie in guest-editing the homepage of the Google-owned video-sharing website.

The French film director will choose his favourite YouTube clips to showcase during the week-long film festival.

Gondry explains his role as a curator in a typically quirky clip that features him pretending to pick his nose.

On the official YouTube blog, the company said that he will "programme a festival of sorts right here on YouTube".

With 233 million unique users visiting YouTube.com in November, according to web measurement firm ComScore, the decision to bring in a guest editor is no trivial matter for the world's biggest video-sharing website.

Guest editing has become fashionable in old and new media in recent years.

Vint Cerf, chief evangelist at Google, was one of a number of guest editors to take the reins at the Guardian's Monday MediaGuardian supplement towards the end of last year.

Bob Geldof guest edited an issue of Germany's biggest-selling daily newspaper, Bild, in June last year. He replaced the tabloid's usual saucy front page with a picture of an emaciated African child.

Bono guest edited the Independent on May 16 last year, while Giorgio Armani was guest designer, resulting in a sales rise of around 70,000 copies.
