Special Clip of the Week April 28: Coast Report fighting for funds

The Associated Students of Orange Coast College Fiscal Affairs Committee has proposed that the Coast Report will receive eight percent of what was requested for next year's budget at $750.

This budget covers three conferences that the Coast Report attends every year.

As the features editor of the Coast Report, I attended my first JACC in Sacramento this year, and the experience was invaluable. It would be a robbery and disservice to students if the conferences are taken away.

So, theres only one thing to do.

Clip of the Week Apr. 27: Kanye West at Coachella

For those of us unlucky enough not to go to Coachella, we are lucky enough to have Kanye West's whole performance on YouTube.

I am not a huge fan of West, but he killed it, and from what I've seen, he is the best rap and hip-hop performer on Earth if not one of the best in the world. The theatrics, the showmanship, the energy - it's unmatched.

Clip of the Week

This week we get to see Kings of Leon's true colors. They really nail it on stage in this live clip from Reading Festival 2009 of their song "Sex on fire."

(Protip: This video is not actually them playing. It's edited heavily to create a terrible performance. Also, it's hilarious.)

Clip of the Week April 6: Yuck

New indie band, Yuck, isn't doing anything new, but with their self-titled debut, they give a noisy reminder of what made acts like Yo La Tengo, My Bloody Valentine, and Dinosaur Jr. so great.

This is their music video for the last track on the album, "Rubber." This song recalls the My Bloody Valentine ballad, "Sometimes," and the slow-burning distortion and droning textures in this case, create quite an exquisite experience.

This video might be just as exquisite, depending on taste.
