Hmm, not sure if there’s a theme with these five. Things that are either slightly or very disturbing? An exploration of the roles we all play in society? Cool new music? Whatever, just watch.

UNKLE feat. Ian Astbury – “Burn My Shadow” (via Stereogum)

In which a regular guy awakens one morning to find, well, something’s been installed in his body. Creepy factor: 7/10

Ciara – “Like a Boy”

In which the young pop singer wonders about gender roles, and dances around with some butch gals. Groundbreaking factor: 5/10

LCD Soundsystem – “All My Friends” (via Cliptip)

In which James Murphy gets painted up, rained on, and then apparently shot fireworks at. Adorable James Murphy factor: 8/10

Queens of the Stone Age – “Sick Sick Sick” (via Pitchfork)

In which the members of the raunchy rock combo are feasted upon, one by one, by a very hungry lady. Gross shots of meat factor: 9/10

Bonde do Role – “Solta o Frango”

In which a couple portly guys dress up in, ahem, rooster outfits, and stage a mock battle on the street. Brazilian party factor: 10/10

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.
