Jukebox Friday: More Sounds From the Grab Bag.

It's an eclectic jukebox mix this week. Here we go...

How about a little Eurodisco from Luv? This is "U O Me Waldolala":

Some sweet, sweet swing from the Cats and the Fiddle, doing "Killing Jive":

The Penatrators go New Wave-ish with "Shopping Bag":

It's some good ol' fashioned country with "Teenage Boogie" by Webb Pierce:

Finally, here's something brand new -- "Emily Paints" by The Deadly Syndrome":

A Very Timberlake Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American readers! Before you rush out to get your turkey 'n' football on, here is Justin Timberlake's recent Thanksgiving-themed cameo on "Saturday Night Live":

I don't know where I got this clip from -- it's been sitting on my YouTube playlist for what seems like forever, and I can't remember how it got there. Maybe it was from WFMU's Beware of the Blog, or maybe it came from PCL LinkDump (where I'm a contributor now, BTW, so go check it out). Whatever it's providence, it's a bizarre slice of bizareness from the Polish(?) film "Salto," directed by Tadeusz Konwicki:

The Very Model of a Modern Major Booty.

It's Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back" done Gilbert and Sullivan style! You know you've been wanting this:

Bollywood Monday: Kunika in the Rain.

Happy Bollywood Monday, peeps! I don't know anything about this clip, really, except that it features Kunika dancing in the rain. Anybody know what movie this is from?

Movie Trailer Week: Fake Out!

Let's wrap up Movie Trailer Week with a fake trailer, although it's the sort of trash I'd totally want to see. From a European comedy show, it's the trailer for a fake '70s grindhouse movie called "Bitch Killer":

Movie Trailer Week: Vampire Night.

Amateurism ahoy! Here's the trailer for "Vampire Night," which looks like it was shot in somebody's aunt's house for about $50:

Movie Trailer Week: Queen Kong.

From 1976, to cash in on the big budget "King Kong" remake comes the weird Euro pastiche, "Queen Kong":

Bollywood Monday: Movie Trailer Week Begins.

I've been in a theme week mood lately, so let's kick off another. This week it'll be movie trailers. I post a lot of them with my reviews over at the Desuko Movie Spot, but over here I wanted to focus specifically on movies that are so impossible to find that I haven't seen them yet, but totally want to.

This is a vintage Ramsey Brothers horror flick from Bollywood called "Purana Mandir," released in 1984:

Jukebox Friday: New Music Week Edition.

Okay, so doing a Jukebox Friday in a week that already feature nothing but music seems redundant. That's why this one will just be a collection of other fine new videos that I didn't get to earlier in the week.

The editing on this one drives me crazy, but the tune is rockin'. Here's some poppy girlpunk from Hunter Valentine called "Break This":

I like the video more than the song, but I have to admit that the song's grown on me. It's "I'm Good, I'm Gone" by Lykke Li:

Here's a message for all you gay marriage haters out there. You can't stop the love, people. It's Melange Lavonne with "I Got You":

Finally, here's a brilliant mindfuck of a video. It's "Carmencita" by Devendra Banhart. The lyrics are in Spanish, the concept is pure mistranslated old school Bollywood -- and there are even a couple of surprise guest stars. That's truly all you need:

New Music Week: Solange.

Meet Solange. She may be Beyonce's little sister, but she's got a sound all her own that, for my money, is far better. Check out the retro soul vibes of "Sandcastle Disco":

New Music Week: The Virgins.

Here's "Rich Girls," the new single from the Virgins. If you close your eyes, it's almost like it's the '80s all over again. However, the video's pretty cool, so you should probably keep your eyes open.

New Music Week: M.I.A. & Blaqstarr.

The always fantabulous M.I.A. teams up with Blaqstarr for her new single, "S.U.S. (Save Ur Soul)":

Bollywood Monday: New Music Week Begins.

This week, I want to feature some new tunes I've been digging. We'll get to the usual pop/rock fare starting tomorrow, but since this is Bollywood Monday, we're going to kick off the week with something new from India. From the forthcoming movie "Dostana," this is Shilpa Shetty doing the short-but-sweet "Shut Up and Bounce":

Election Throw Down.

DesukoTube will be taking a short mental health break this week. Look for some more exciting videos next Monday or so. In the meanwhile, it's election time, so those of you here in the U.S. need to get out and make your voice heard. (And also go to the polls and vote, too.) If you're one of the millions of Americans who is still undecided (what's taking you so damn long?), here's a debate between Obama and McCain in a fresh new, freestyle format that we can all get behind. Work it!
