  • it makes me think of The Day of the Locust for some reason

  • The editing on this is pretty killer.

  • agreed, kudos to the editor

  • Alan. from The Hangover

    I was almost sold.. till he booted that dog with no real story to it.

    • i think it was supposed to look like it was attacking him, upon second viewing the dog looks a bit too friendly hahah

    • aga

      yeah, the same impression. how did they make this scene and what for? ;/

    • CB

      Apparently the band had no actual say in the creation of this music video and were really pissed of at their label and the director at the dog punching.

  • Grettle

    Cool clip.

    Have a peep at Tame Impala’s new album artwork, and the single artwork for Solitude Is Bliss is amazing also!

    yeah not keen on the animal abuse implication, especially when you see its saliva after he appears to punch the dog in the face. What the hell?

  • it really fits the song.

  • I love Tame Impala. They’re from my city and usually Australians pooh-pooh anyone from their own city but these guys are great.

  • Jona

    I think it looks like the dog was trying to hump him, so no reason for hitting…
    cool song though, and otherwise amazing clip!

  • Morgan

    I have definitely had a dream very similar to this one before. Only the dog punched me.

  • Dylan

    He didn’t really punch a dog, and the song is about solitude and anger. I don’t understand why people are so hung up on that. It’s supposed to be visually shocking.

  • mela

    Australian’s hardly poo-pooh their surrounding music artists, it’s there to be poo-poohed when the talent is hardly commended. Quality to taste my friends.

Photographer Daniel Ranalli Spends Two Decades Capturing Snail Trails

“Spiral #9” (1996)

 

Massachusetts-based photographer Daniel Ranalli has spent more than 20 years on his “Snail Drawings,” a series which consists of one image of neatly configured snails and a second image of the unique patterns made when the snails were left to their own devices.

While a simple enough concept, Ranalli sees the project as a reflection of the inherent randomness of life and our inability to control the results or elements of a situation no matter how hard we might try! See more of Ranalli’s work below or on display at Classic Photographs Los Angeles January 21-22.
