MVs Collection #171 ( Best Of 2014 )

Posted on December 28, 2014 |

Over the last few years, I’ve kept my blogging to my podcasts and my love
of music videos.

Back in the day, on Muchmusic, I would watch on a weekly basis “The Wedge”
which was our “120 Minutes” here in Canada.

Sadly, the show met it’s end earlier this year after an on and off run
of 22 years

Now, if you want to watch any and all music videos, YouTube is where it’s at
and clearly, it’s the best thing that could’ve happened to the format.

Directors can now be as free as they want to be when it comes to their
, not having to bow down to TV network regulations, they can be
as creative and fucked up
as their twisted minds allows.

So many good directors in the game right now: Hiro Murai, Eric Wareheim,
Kahlil Joseph, Nabil … to name just a few.

2014 was an exceptionally good year and I wanted to share my 15 favorites
in no particular order.

Through the magic of YouTube, I’ve created a playlist so that you can watch them
on your beautiful HD TVs in all their stupendous glory.
