Little Dragon – Klapp Klapp (video)

Posted in Music Videos on February 16th, 2014 by Hyphen

New Little Dragon! Nabuma Rubberband will be released May 13th.  Enough said.

Actually, one more thing: the illustrious NABIL handled Creative Director duties on this one.  Dude is a beast.

Frank Ocean – Pyramids (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on September 23rd, 2012 by Hyphen

I don’t know if it’s the video of the year, but it’s certainly my song of the year. I only wish they had visuals for the entire 10 minute piece.

Frank Ocean – Thinking About You (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on September 17th, 2011 by Hyphen

The yin to my last post’s yang, I LOVE this record, but the video is too creepy for me.  I almost feel like if they just put Nabil’s “Swim Good” visuals to this track, it might turn out real dope.  Eh well, I’ll cope.

Bridget Kelly, on the other hand, must feel a little sideways about this song getting visuals after Frank supposedly wrote it for her Roc Nation project…

Frank Ocean – Swim Good (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on September 17th, 2011 by Hyphen

The long awaited video for Frank’s “Swim Good” finally dropped and, as expected with all Nabil directed visuals, it’s clean, dope, and a little twisted. This is actually one of my least favorite tracks on Nostalgia…Ultra, but that’s not really an indictment because the project as a whole is incredible.  If any of the records could potentially catch on to radio after “Novacane” finishes its run (still my song of the year), it’s this one.  Here’s hoping the mass public continues to take notice of Frank.

Oh, and you always win points with me for any panda or samurai references.  Well done guys.

Bon Iver – Holocene (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on August 26th, 2011 by Hyphen

I feel like I should post more non-hip-hop related content on TAOD.  And has Nabil EVER put a foot wrong with his videos?  Unlikely.

Frank Ocean – Novacane (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on June 16th, 2011 by Hyphen

I was excited to see that my frontrunner for song of the year had a video, and then completely geeked to see Frank linked up with one of the best directors out, Nabil Elderkin, for the “Novacane” visuals. Great record, dope effects, NSFW boobies, a bad ass white tiger, and…you already know…a panda. Could you ask for anything more?

The answer is, of course, yes. I would have loved to see the full song, but sometimes life slaps you back to reality rather abruptly…just to see if you can feel your face.

Kanye West – Glow In The Dark tour book promo

Posted in Art, Artists, Live Performances, Videos on October 31st, 2009 by Hyphen


This was the best concert I’ve ever been too and with everything going on that day (girl was in town, chilling with N.E.R.D., catching up with Lupe, etc.), it was probably one of my favorite days ever.  Ah, memories.

Someone buy me this book for Christmas.  Kthxbye.

Mr. Hudson – White Lies (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on September 24th, 2009 by Hyphen

There’s something a little Lebowskian about the style of this video (“no Donny, these men are nihilists…there’s nothing to be afraid of”) so it’s quirky, but I dig it.  Hudson is a really dope writer to me.

Ever told some white lies to get close to someone?  Be careful…
