Flowers in the dustbin

obsessive24 posted her very sad 10th doctor video (New Dawn Fades by Joy Division) which to me draws a parallel between becoming human and giving up the self, and emphasises the loneliness and guilt that the doctor feels. 'Mistakes were made'. One you can't miss.

stephantom has posted a rarity - a Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead video (Parting of the Sensory by Modest Mouse) which I think brings out the sweet innocence and expressiveness of R&G, even as we see Tim Roth stab Richard Dreyfuss in the stomach. As they have no free will, they are without evil intent: as the Sex Pistols said 'Where there's no future, how can there be sin?'

Meanwhile, listening to my iPod I wonder whether anyone would make a Life on Mars video, splicing together all the times someone hits Sam Tyler - there would be bags of material - to the Prodigy 'Smack my Bitch Up' - come on folks - you'd be subverting convention! Honest.
