Thing of Beauty: Beautiful Thieves

Video television is on in the background in the house often. I passed through my family room today and was immediately dumbstruck by the dress on a girl in a video. She is unforgettable as she reaches the edge of a balcony.

I was motionless there, watching this beautiful black, white, and red gathering. AFI is an alternative band, if that is not your taste, you could turn your volume down. But see it; remarkably erudite styling, makeup, and nuances.

So many music videos are slapdash that it truly is astonishing to come across one where the art of the form is taking (or appears to have been taken) seriously. The styling is, as you note, striking and someone took great care to make sure that the visuals complemented the track. Very, very well done.

There aren't many videos I feel I'd like to watch over and over, but this I think I would. There's a lot going on here.

I'm thinking most of the furniture is from the Horchow catalog. I recognized the corner alcove chair and the peacock fireplace screen.
