Snow White's Bones

The "real" Snow White was maybe one of two cute German girls who led difficult lives and were friends with children stunted by mining. One had a stepmother who owned a fancy mirror. (A reason to repost Labyrinth Ear's beautiful "Snow White" music video.)

I have to say that the original soundtrack for this clip is pretty amazing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aDATXtewPrg


@bocadelperro Thank you for posting this! I was wondering what it originally sounded like.

fondue with cheddar

@bocadelperro Yes, thanks for posting this! <3 Cab Calloway!

Hot Doom

First of all, "mine tunnels of Bieber".
Second, my mind is in the gutter because all I can think of is the verb "mine", rather than the noun.
Third, Labyrinth Ear. Whoa, love.


@LolaLaBalc Or an archaic use of "my"?

"Don't worry darling, those are just mine tunnels of Bieber."

Hot Doom

@Ophelia Hmm, possessive. Even better! I wonder if that's a nickname he uses for himself...

Katie Scarlett

@Ophelia I can only hear this in Marlene Dietrich's voice and I can't stop hearing it.


@Katie Scarlett try it in Lili von Stupp and it's even better...


@Katie Scarlett @bocadelperro Oh, god.


I am seriously considering changing my username to "Maria Sophia Margaretha Catharina von Erthal"


@Ophelia I am considering emptying my savings account to get one of those mirrors.


@Maria Sophia Margaretha Catharina Von Erthal that would be simply supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! But wouldn't Erica Kane Martin Brent Cudahy Chandler Montgomery Montgomery Chandler Marick Marick Montgomery think you were copying her schtick?


Love this song. No excuses needed for posting good music. There should be a public Hairpin playlist somewhere...

Oh, squiggles

@littleBrother I concur.


Koko the Clown invented break-dancing.


@teebs Koko is mimicking cab calloway


Thats why he's dressed in white in the video


@retrovertigo Koko is Cab Calloway. Both his voice and his moves, which were rotoscoped from film Calloway shot for the animators. (you can see this in the original clip, which I posted above)

When I clicked on the link to the fancy mirror I shouted (to myself, as I am alone in my apartment), "Spieglein Spieglein an der Wand, wer ist die Schönste im Land?!"


Betty Boop cartoons are almost never not completely disturbing, I have found.


@breccia Early cartoons generally are really freaky.


@Lucienne @breccia I was just wondering how much weed was available back in the day, because that is some trippy Adult Swim stuff, there.


@bocadelperro AND, the dancing was essentially traced from film footage of Cab Calloway!


@FloraPosteHaste I know! It's so great! Everything about that movie is so awesome!


Can we do Rapunzel next? Please can we?


I can't stop listening to this song!


The song is cool, but this band had absolutely no part in the production of this footage other than appropriating it for their video. It doesn't even match up, it makes no sense. The reel and the song do not go together at all.


@retrovertigo I kind of do think they go together. They are both dream-ish and kind of unsettling.


I like this so much. What other artists sound like this?


@roughe I think it sounds kinda like that Trentmoller song that says "I've been thinking too much about you"...which might be called Moan?
But none of his other songs sound like that one, I learned after buying a whole album of his music hoping that girl would be in every song.


@roughe You might like Cinematic Orchestra, Bonobo, The Young Lovers, or some of the stuff on Ghostly International.
