T's YouTube Videos of the Week

January 14, 2009

We also like Blue Scholars' new video for their song "Coffee and Snow" (and if you've got time, a spoof
of the song and video by Common Market). My partner tells me that the
person who makes Blue Scholars' videos is Zia
Mohajerjasbi, brother of Blue Scholars member Sabzi. Zia
Mohajerjasbi also directed the short film Manoj.
Sabzi (Alexei Saba Mohajerjasbi) is the dj/producer for Blue Scholars
and Common Market. We have a Q&A with Sabzi and Geo (George
Quibuyen) of Blue Scholars in our current issue.

My son T also really loves this video, simply entitled Buddha.

And finally, how can we be complete without the monkey videos? See monkey waiters in Japan.
