smoothbrain - 2009-02-03 I know that Joel Peter Witkin inspired this whole genre of rust colored, perverted music videos, but which one was first? Tool or Nine Inch Nails?
Merzbau - 2009-02-04 NIN. And Tool ripped off the Brothers Quay more than anything (at least at first).
Romanek more or less made the "Closer" video and moved on, but see Floria Sigismondi for a counterexample. I like her, she does good work, but she was wallowing around in the dirt/rust/straitjacket/bondage thing for fucking EVER.
