Normally, an Elijah Wood starring video would not make it on our radar, but when it comes in the starring role of an awesomely bizarro music video for Flying Lotus "Tiny Tortures" (off of the sublime FlyLo 2012 album Until The Quiet Comes), we are all ears and eyes. Is it a dream? Where did that hand go? Only director David Lewandowski knows. Watch...

Wow. We don't know why we became so transfixed with this video, how we couldn't dare take our eyes off of it, but Emily Kai Bock's Nightlife video for musician Sebastien Schuller is one of the better ones we have seen all year.

Stunning simplicity at work.
