That’s right, stop working, it’s okay. Just put down the phone/spreadsheet/spatula, put off that meeting/budget/drive-through order for five minutes, and watch some teeny-tiny new music videos. Your boss/client/hungry children in SUV can wait.

Mute Math – “Typical” (via YouTube Most Viewed)
IN which SXSW standouts with a big U2-y sound (and possible Christian Rock background?) film entire video in reverse

Low – “Breaker” (via Stereogum)
In which lead singer Alan Sparhawk tries to eat a whole chocolate cake, and, um, that’s pretty much it

Simian Mobile Disco – “It’s the Beat” (via Yahoo Music UK)
In which an inhabitant of a cartoonish black-and-white world gets hit with a color bomb accompanied by some French electro

Lily Allen – “Alfie” (via me just looking it up)
In which the Brit pop starlet tells us about her stoner brother, who is also, apparently, a puppet

Bonus! Queens of the Stone Age – 45-second preview of stuff (via Silent Uproar)
In which the California rockers provide some teases of new material on their upcoming album, Era Vulgaris; wait til very end for Nirvana-like power riff

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
