Take On Me” was directed by Steve Barron, who took on A-ha‘s music video project soon after filming “Billie Jean” by Michael Jackson and “Money For Nothing” by Dire Straits. One of my favorite music videos, “Take On Me” was innovative for it’s time due to its use of rotoscoping, or using the combination of pencil-sketch animation and live action whereby real footage is traced over. “Take On Me” wasn’t just groundbreaking in its style, but it also had a cool little artistic storyline. A girl sitting in the café reading a comic book literally get’s dragged into a dangerous motorcycle race and becomes part of the story. A cute little side note – the girl was actually lead singer Morten Harket‘s girlfriend at the time.

Enjoy the ride:

Steve JobsSteve Jobs, co-founder of Apple Computers has passed away today, October 5, 2011. While Steve was not directly associated with the music industry and never really considered himself in the industry, he has forever changed the face of it with his inventions of Apple computers, the iPod, iTunes, iPhone, iPad, and more. Through these innovations and technologies, Steve and Apple have been able to sell over 10 billion music tracks. This has made Apple the number one music retailer in the US, surpassing both Best Buy and Wal-Mart, and holding over 80% of the market share.

Today, the Apple website posted the following message:

“Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.”

RIP, Steve Jobs. You will be missed.

Oh my goodness… I ran into this “Born This Way” video by Steve Kardynal about four months ago, and ever since then it is all I can think about when I hear this Lady GaGa song. If you don’t want to change your view of this song, then don’t watch this video because this will probably pop into your head every time you hear it. Hilarious!
