Music Videos: What I’ve been watching lately

Had a lovely weekend tooling around Fredericksburg, visiting my grandparents’ old house in Ingram, climbing Enchanted Rock, and swimming in Krause Springs. Gettin’ in my Hill Country fare before I move to Wisconsin.

Replenished from my outdoors time with two of my favorite people, I thought I’d post a few new(ish) videos I like. Given the excellent commentary on Beyoncé and Rihanna’s new videos from Racialicious, the Crunk Feminist Collective, and Womanist Musings, I thought I’d just provide the links and say “preach!” However, here are some other new(ish) clips to get you talking.

Thanks to Clutch Magazine for the last two. Like ’em almost as much Bene Viera’s piece on Kreayshawn, which you should read alongside this Crunk Feminists post if you haven’t already.

      Wow, snark! You assume rightly that I have taste, fearandtrepidation. I also appreciate the Juliettes’ efforts–even if the It Gets Better project is hardly flawless–and had no problem supporting them here.
