Weird video of the week

This is an odd choice. Actually, it’s not even so much about the video as it is the song itself. I really don’t find the kaleidoscopic effects all that weird or surprising for Erykah. The really bizarre part, for me, is that it’s featuring Lil Wayne!??? What the HELL is/was she thinking!? Now, he doesn’t

Let Yourself Feel

Nice animation, I think made with Processing, just simply using graceful strokes of color and quotes from famous designers and artists. This guy has a really impressive portfolio of motion graphics that you should check out.
