New York City dance-punk band !!! (Chk Chk Chk)’s new video for ‘Dancing Is The Best Revenge’, taken from ‘Shake The Shudder’, out May 19th on Warp Records.
“When we recorded Dancing Is The Best Revenge I pitched up my voice, becoming Nicole Fayu in the studio - much like Prince became Camille and Morrissey became Ann Coates. the groove felt like a strut or walk and i imagined it akin to drag or ballroom culture.
After The One 2 video featured such strong dance performances, and was filmed in the historic LA venue Jalisco, we decided to give the song to some girls who could really walk the walk and perform the song as in the spirit of reinvention. We traded some outfits and makeup tips and they helped me become IRL Nicole Fayu. Dancing with them was a blast, and it was great to finally see the song walked. I have to admit, I'm not used to being out performed in a video.
These ladies ignore a world that tells them who they should be - they take the stage, walking as whoever they want to be, and that’s their best revenge. Maybe you’ll never put on heels, maybe you'll never walk onstage, maybe you’ll never be anyone else, but maybe this song/vid/story inspires you to try something you haven't before.”—Nic Offer

A new obsession. How to get out of cold, metallic waters alive. Every night for a week I dream of my car ending up in a body of water. If I’m not driving, someone else is. Bob, the neighbor. My new paranoia. I Google how to escape a car filling with water. I watch videos on YouTube. I memorize the steps of what to do if this happens. First, you take your seat belt off. Late at night, I read pages and pages on the internet. What if the car lands in the water flipped over? Remember to stay calm. If you panic, you will die. News story about a woman who drives her minivan into the ocean on purpose. Horrified beachgoers run toward the water. The two kids are strapped in the back seat. One of the kids is screaming “No, mommy” — What about the sunroof? What if you land in the water and your car has a sunroof? My new car has a sunroof. You have to let the car fill with water so that pressure is equalized on both sides. This is elementary physics. If you don’t do this, it’s impossible to open the doors. This is the scary part. You have to hold your breath. None of the YouTube videos say anything about what to do if you have kids strapped in car seats in the car. I look up what the dreams mean. Water in dreams signifies turbulent emotions. If you are in your car and there is a flash flood, you should get out immediately. Even six inches of water can sweep your car away. Sweep it to where? Maybe the forest?
I get nervous driving by the Gulf of Mexico. My friend Dyan got into an accident there and she said that if the car had flipped on the other side of the road, her whole family would have ended up in the water. I don’t like water. I don’t want to touch it. It scares me. I know all life was born of water. Today the government proposed to sell off all public lands. That before anything existed there were rocks and then water. I know that water is beautiful and mysterious. But why does it sweep people away? I want to push down the rising seas. I look at a map of cities that will be underwater by 2100, 2200 — Jacksonville, New Orleans, Amsterdam. I want to push them down with my bare hands.
Nineteen years after the formation of the Empire, Luke Skywalker is thrust into the struggle of the Rebel Alliance when he meets Obi-Wan Kenobi, who has lived for years in seclusion on the desert planet of Tatooine. Obi-Wan begins Luke's Jedi training as Luke joins him on a daring mission to rescue the beautiful Rebel leader Princess Leia from the clutches of the evil Empire. Although Obi-Wan sacrifices himself in a lightsaber duel with Darth Vader, his former apprentice, Luke proves that the Force is with him by destroying the Empire's dreaded Death Star.
Building on Elton John and Bernie Taupin’s Californian inspiration, Max Weiland filmed a video for “Tiny Dancer” that reflects on life in Los Angeles from a dozen different people, all unfolding behind the wheel of their cars. The Cut, proudly supported by YouTube, invited filmmakers to create the first official music videos for three of Elton John’s most famous songs: http://eltonjohn.com/thecut

In the future everyone will have the same haircut and the same clothes. In the future everyone will be very fat from the starchy diet. In the future everyone will be very thin from not having enough to eat. In the future it will be next to impossible to tell girls from boys, even in bed. In the future men will be 'super masculine' and women will be 'ultra-feminine'. In the future half of us will be 'mentally ill'. In the future there will be no religion or spiritualism of any sort. In the future the 'psychic arts' will be put to practical use. In the future we will not think that 'nature' is beautiful. In the future the weather will always be the same. In the future no one will fight with anyone else. In the future there will be an atomic war.
In the future water will be expensive. In the future all material items will be free. In the future everyone's house will be like a little fortress. In the future everyone's house will be a total entertainment centre. In the future everyone but the wealthy will be very happy. In the future everyone but the wealthy will be very filthy. In the future everyone but the wealthy will be very healthy. In the future TV will be so good that the printed word will function as an art form only. In the future people with boring jobs will take pills to relieve the boredom. In the future that no one will live in cities. In the future there will be mini-wars going on everywhere.
In the future everyone will think about love all the time. In the future political and other decisions will be based completely on opinion polls. In the future there will be machines which will produce a religious experience in the user. In the future there will be groups of wild people, living in the wilderness. In the future there will only be paper money which will be personalized. In the future there will be a classless society. In the future everyone will only get to go home once a year. In the future everyone will stay home all the time. In the future we will not have time for leisure activities. In the future we will only 'work' one day a week. In the future our bodies will be shriveled up but our brains will be bigger. In the future there will be starving people everywhere. In the future people will live in space.
In the future no one will be able to afford TV. In the future the helpless will be killed. In the future everyone will have their own style of way-out clothes. In the future we will make love to anything, anytime, anywhere. In the future there will be so much going on that no one will be able to keep track of it.
