My Nightly Middle Finger to MTV

When music videos were first introduced, they were little more than promotional tools for artists and their albums. Over the years though, few would deny that they've become an art form all their own.

Despite the stranglehold that idiotic Dave Meyers/Hip-Hop-meets-Anime/Ghetto Fabulous videos have had on MTV over the past several years, there have still been directors keeping that art form alive by doing incredible things with the medium.

Chris Cunningham is one of them.

Clear the next few minutes of your schedule and see for yourself; tonight's video is one of a select group which can truly be called a masterpiece. From Bjork's 1997 album Homogenic, it's the astonishing video for All is Full of Love.

I hung out with Chris in London a few years ago. One of the most unassuming, normal and insanely talented people I have ever met. Nice guy too.

It's almost impossible to fathom that the man who created Aphex Twin's Come to Daddy is a normal, nice guy. Glad to hear it.
