I Am Not Lefthanded fights spying teddy bears in video



DarkerRadio.com introduced me to London-based band I Am Not Lefthanded today. Music is average mild alt-rock, but it's this video for "Everybody Sleeps" that caught my attention for its oddness. Granted, do you remember play fighting with your stuffed animals as a child? Or pretending that they were spying on you and your siblings? Watch for some simple entertainment.



    

Ever search Google for "worst bands ever"?

Responded to another person's Twitter post this morning pondering the worst band they've ever heard. I responded with Kittie or REO Speedwagon because they are popular band names that came top-of-mind, even though there are much worse, in my opinion.

But then I searched Google for further inspiration of horrible artists and albums. Here is a list of some entertaining "worst" lists out there. I agree with some of their entries, but vehemently disagree with others, such as the Maxim 30 Worst Albums of All Time list that had the Beatles "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" as the #1 worst album of all time. I'll pretend that list creator was trying to be funny or controversial, cause several coworkers and I consider it one of the Beatles better albums.
