QOTSA interactive video out now
The New Queens of the Stone Age Interactive video for "Vampyre of Time and Memory" is now live and if you've got an outdated machine, don't even try it. If you do try it, you may not want to have any other processes going ... just saying ... Once you get past the initial buffering you will come across a link to the iTunes version of the album Like Clockwork. You’ll also find some interesting Easter Eggs, including a lyric sheet, two different angels and two different settings of Queens performing (one is a room full of high-def taxidermed animals) and another scene all together of what appears to be a story of an aged diva lamenting the loss of time. The directors’ cut of the tune is now available as well through a link within the interactive site. But you don’t have to go through the bulky site to watch the director’s cut The director's cut includes the band decked out in tailored suits and a nice close up of front man Josh Homme's hands, with the knuckle tats and some white painted and minacured nails. There is also some really choice cinematography, and the aged diva lip syncs Homme's words quite well. Plus a piano that starts to breath like a monster ... just watch it. The project was a join venture between the band, The Creators Project, Intel and Vice.
