Yo La Tengo and Hold Steady collecting videos

Posted by Arcane Gazebo at August 31, 2006 5:48 PM

Two of my favorite bands are requesting videos from fans: Yo La Tengo simply want a reading of their upcoming album's title, I Am Not Afraid Of You And I Will Beat Your Ass. The Hold Steady have more open-ended instructions: "We want to you know about what you think about the opposite sex, relationships, love, the whole shebang." They're both posting submitted videos on their respective sites.

Video's not really my preferred medium, so I won't contribute to either unless I get really inspired, but I like the concept. The YLT album comes out on September 12, and Hold Steady's on October 3.

You could submit the results of a numerical simulation and show them how the chaotic dynamics signifies the chaos in relationships. Wait, maybe I should do this. :) (It's total BS, but I'm thinking along the lines of a Alan Sokal kind of thing...)
