Neato Viddys on the Intertubes

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


With VH1 Classic possibly going away, and Logo’s “NewNowNext” seemingly impossible to catch, there’s almost no good place for music videos on TV these days. So, like in all things, we must turn to the internet. Below are some new clips that make squinting at a tiny window on your work monitor worth the trouble.

Robyn “Konichiwa Bitches” (via Stereogum)
In which the Swedish pop star gets silly (warning: a couple swear words)

MIA “Bird Flu” (via Cliptip)
In which the UK rapper goes back to Sri Lanka and brings back an evil, infectious beat (sorry)

Arcade Fire “Wake Up” (live) (via NME)
In which the Montreal collective perform in the lobby after a show at Porchester Hall, London, and give me goose bumps

Jay-Z “Minority Report” (via Idolator)
In which the New York rapper pays tribute to victims of Hurricane Katrina

Kaiser Chiefs “Ruby” (scroll down and click “watch” next to “Ruby”) (via Yahoo Music UK)
In which the UK combo get a miniature city built around them (plus the ad beforehand is the British version of the Mac/PC ads!)

Lily Allen “Smile” (Gutter remix) (via Pitchfork)
In which random footage of a dance contest gets sync’ed up with a bootleg mix of the UK singer’s reggae-pop hit

IT'S NOT THAT WE'RE SCREWED WITHOUT TRUMP:

"It's that we're screwed with or without him if we can't show the public that what we do matters for the long term," writes Mother Jones CEO Monika Bauerlein as she kicks off our drive to raise $350,000 in donations from readers by July 17.

This is a big one for us. It's our first time asking for an outpouring of support since screams of FAKE NEWS and so much of what Trump stood for made everything we do so visceral. Like most newsrooms, we face incredibly hard budget realities, and it's unnerving needing to raise big money when traffic is down.

So, as we ask you to consider supporting our team's journalism, we thought we'd slow down and check in about where Mother Jones is and where we're going after the chaotic last several years. This comparatively slow moment is also an urgent one for Mother Jones: You can read more in "Slow News Is Good News," and if you're able to, please support our team's hard-hitting journalism and help us reach our big $350,000 goal with a donation today.
