First I’d like to ask: Do you think this crawling robot baby is too good at crawling, or just good enough? I’m leaning towards just good enough but there’s certainly a little spill over into too good. I could easily be convinced that it’s too good. But, to get to the point, I came to notice in my eight or nine viewings of this video — through its deep sadness and obvious expression of the futility of life — that it makes an incredibly perfect zen sadness relaxation music video for a number of different songs. Probably countless different songs. This is an incredible find! You’re welcome a million times over, please, you don’t have to thank me — I know. You’re welcome. I already said you’re welcome. Here are a few options to get your afternoon going:

  • Billie Holiday, “Gloomy Sunday”
  • Jeff Buckley, “Hallelujah”
  • Velvet Underground, “Pale Blue Eyes”
  • REM, “Everybody Hurts”
  • St. Vincent, “Champagne Year”
  • Beck, “Lost Cause”
  • Jets to Brazil, “Chinatown”
  • Dismemberment Plan, “The Jitters”

I could go on and on all day. Let’s please go on and on all day. This is my favorite game.  (Via SayOMG.)
