Crafty Music Videos: Guster – One Man Wrecking Machine

Ah plushie love…. and plushie destruction. This cute video by Guster features lots of adorable characters from Monster Factory. In particular, the plight of poor “Kevin” as he comes to grips with the world around him, you know, by removing all of it’s stuffing and recreating it! If the video itself isn’t enough, you can […]

Crafty Music Video: They Might Be Giants – Why is the Sun Shining?

I dare you to not get this song stuck in your head! It’s sooo catchy and cute AND scientific! Pretty much perfect in my opinion.

Crafty Music Videos: Tricot Machine – Les peaux de liévres

This is our second installment of our bi-monthly feature on crafty music videos! Did you forget about it? You won’t forget after you watch this video.

Musically, visually, and lyrically they inspire many Craftsters with their artistry and unique vision.

Michael Jackson Appreciation in Crafts

For many of us Michael Jackson’s music was very much a part of our lives at one stage of his career or perhaps at every stage of this career. I know his body of work encompasses much more than Thriller, but that was the album that hit me at the right age. I can still […]
