Default New Zune-Arts: "Intergalactic Swap Meet"

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://zune-arts.net#swapmeet' target='_blank'>http://zune-arts.net#swapmeet</a><br /><br /></div>There's a new Zune-Arts in town, and it goes by the name of &quot;Swap Meet&quot; (or &quot;Intergallactic Swap Meet&quot. It features some nice 2D and 3D CG animation courtesy of <a href="http://againstallodds.se" target="_blank">againstallodds</a>, and <a href="http://thedeadlysyndrome.com" target="_blank">The Deadly Syndrome</a>'s &quot;Eucalyptus&quot; serves as the score, in the most indie rock way possible. The video itself can only be described as a cross between <a target="_blank" href="http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&amp;ct=res&amp;cd=2&amp;url=http://www.supermariogalaxy.com/&amp;ei=KrNYR7PEGoTKev2x-KMJ&amp;usg=AFQjCNEw5vSguXSgHtT01_09W2PAFJRc6w&amp;sig2=YsPMsIzfaBxQL3BGCYycwQ">Super Mario Galaxy</a> and <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biodiversity#Exotic_species" target="_blank">biologist's worst nightmare</a>, as &quot;message in a bottle&quot;-style containers serve as an interplanetary vessel for several minute alien species. Upon arriving at our planet of reference, the species begin devouring each other and subsequently inheriting their meal's traits. Very weird and very cool.<br /><br /><a target="_blank" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reading_Rainbow">But don't take my word for it</a>, check out the video for yourself:<br /><br /><embed src="http://zune-arts.net/flvplayer.swf" width="500" height="294" allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" flashvars="&displayheight=294&file=http://zune-arts.net/media/Films/swapmeet/IneterSwap_533.flv&height=294&width=500&frontcolor=0xFFFFFF&backcolor=0x888888&lightcolor=0x888888&showdigits=false" />

I like it, even as a biology major.

I would imagine taxonomists would be going nuts... damn these humans (?) and their introduced exotic species!

And I think Zune-Online's Kostas was probably closer in describing the orange sock-guy as the Little Prince.

I'll say this, the music videos on Zune Arts are better than ANYTHING I have seen on MTV (and its ilk) in about 15+ years.

It is good to know that the true spirit of msuic videos is still alive somewhere.
