Neato Viddies: McLaughlin Groove, Hulu, CSS, Justice

First up, the still-baffling and still-awesome “McLaughlin Groove,” Andrew W.K.’s ode to the rollicking political screamfest, gets a video from Salon’s Scott Bateman. Funny, Andrew looks a lot like Mimi did in his Low video–is Bateman the Cathy Guisewite of money-hemorrhaging web sites?
Andrew W.K. – “McLaughlin Groove”

Next, NME is reporting that a homemade music video to Sao Paulo’s iPod-shilling “Music is My Hot Hot Sex” has become the most-watched clip on YouTube, racking up over 100 million views. Really? Is that more than Obama Girl?
CSS – “Music is My Hot Hot Sex”

After the jump: get fierce, and play name that logo!

Sick of 30 Rock and Simpsons videos being taken down from YouTube? Well now there’s a new place to watch them: Fox and NBC have joined forces to do the, er, “Hulu,” a streaming-media site that features clips from the networks’ shows. It’s actually not so bad, and you can embed stuff, like this amusing Project Runway takeoff from SNL:
SNL – “New Bravo Show Sketch”

Finally, this is just for fun: “DVNO” may be just about the worst track on French duo Justice’s , but they’ve redeemed themselves with the spectacular video, a higher-tech update on the logo-bastardizing theme from George Michael’s “Papa Was a Rolling Stone/Killer” clip. See if you can name them all! I got, like, seven.
Justice – “DVNO”

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
