Aphex Twin, all of his videos are really abstract. My favorite is Rubber Johnny as Im sure you know of. His music is just awesome... Ive been listening to some elecronic/ambient stuff recently, like Mr Scruff, Dj Shadow, UNKLE etc

Oh, I must've missed Zucca's post, but yes to this. "Come to Daddy" and Aphex Twin in general are creepy. Good creepy, though. Aphex Twin (Richard D. James) was one of the forerunners in experimental electro, and really, really influential to electronic music in general. I first heard of him on a double album of various ambient artists with his song "Blue Calx," and I could tell just by comparing his song to others on the album that I was going to hear more from him in the future (this was in 1994, by the way).

Also, Chris Cunningham directed "Come to Daddy," "Windowlicker," "Rubber Johnny," as well as Madonna's video for "Frozen," and other videos from the mid-late 1990s, mostly for electronic, indie and alt artists. I would roll my hipster eyes at Madonna for wanting a piece of Cunningham's artistic pie, but "Frozen" is still her best video to date. When she morphs into a doberman and crows I can't help but think, "Wow, Madonna. You ARE cool." Anyway, Cunningham has a very distinct style; I love his videos. They use a lot of dark lighting and green/bue filters, and seamlessly work in visual effects to create captivating and absurd fantasy landscapes.

This is not a Chris Cunningham video, but I must add it for its stunning--yet slightly creepy--visuals. I don't know about you, but if Robert Del Naja turned into a wingless moth next to me, I'd freak out. Especially when his eyes go completely black. Gah. Getitoffgetitoffgetitoff! (As an aside, the moth markings on his back would make an awesome tattoo.)

That place was on an episode of "Life After People" a couple of years ago. I had to stop watching that show because it was giving me nightmares. Yes, real nightmares. Great pictures, though. Thanks for sharing! (Whoever wrote the article is absolutely not a journalist, though. Augh. So many things wrong with the article!)

RAWR, WING-0 in a thong! Wait... >.>
