Neato Viddies: McLaughlin Groove, Hulu, CSS, Justice

First up, the still-baffling and still-awesome “McLaughlin Groove,” Andrew W.K.’s ode to the rollicking political screamfest, gets a video from Salon’s Scott Bateman. Funny, Andrew looks a lot like Mimi did in his Low video–is Bateman the Cathy Guisewite of money-hemorrhaging web sites?
Andrew W.K. – “McLaughlin Groove”

Next, NME is reporting that a homemade music video to Sao Paulo’s iPod-shilling “Music is My Hot Hot Sex” has become the most-watched clip on YouTube, racking up over 100 million views. Really? Is that more than Obama Girl?
CSS – “Music is My Hot Hot Sex”

After the jump: get fierce, and play name that logo!

Sick of 30 Rock and Simpsons videos being taken down from YouTube? Well now there’s a new place to watch them: Fox and NBC have joined forces to do the, er, “Hulu,” a streaming-media site that features clips from the networks’ shows. It’s actually not so bad, and you can embed stuff, like this amusing Project Runway takeoff from SNL:
SNL – “New Bravo Show Sketch”

Finally, this is just for fun: “DVNO” may be just about the worst track on French duo Justice’s , but they’ve redeemed themselves with the spectacular video, a higher-tech update on the logo-bastardizing theme from George Michael’s “Papa Was a Rolling Stone/Killer” clip. See if you can name them all! I got, like, seven.
Justice – “DVNO”

TIME IS RUNNING OUT!

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and it's truly crunch time: About 15 percent of our yearly online giving usually comes in during the final week of the year, and in "No Cute Headlines or Manipulative BS," we explain why we simply can't afford to come up short right now.

The bottom line: Corporations and powerful people with deep pockets will never sustain the type of journalism Mother Jones exists to do. And advertising or profit-driven ownership groups will never make time-intensive, in-depth reporting viable.

That's why donations big and small make up 74 percent of our budget this year. There is no backup to keep us going, no alternate revenue source, no secret benefactor. If readers don’t donate, we won’t be here. It's that simple.

And if you can help us out with a donation right now, all online gifts will be matched thanks to an incredibly generous matching gift pledge.
