What is contemporary?

Images from the un-official Kids video.

A while ago I heard on the radio a bizarre song, with a circus-like theme and a low-fi rendering; I liked it, and soon discovered that it was Kids from MGMT. It soon has become a big hit, as their entire album. And now I’ve discovered this video, not produced by the MGMT guys, which is… just beautiful.

To the question “what is the spirit of your time?”, “what expresses it?”, which is quite problematic to answer while being immersed in it, I would answer with a link to the video above, to the expressions of the two actors in it, the quotes of the quotes… . Don’t ask me why.
