News: Fiona Apple
Joseph Cahill has directed this bizarre, snail-serenading and squid-wearing video for Fiona Apple‘s excellent Every Single Night:
Talking about the video in Pitchfork’s recent interview, Apple said: “I told [director] Joey [Cahill] just to come up with a bunch of things and do things to me and put me in situations and surprise me. One thing I wanted to have happen was to be covered in snails. I laid in a bed of soil and they put snails all over me. And then they brought in shit that I would not have asked for. He put a dead squid on my head.
“I used to love to put snails on my arm– I have a bunch of pictures. I used to put half a watermelon out in my yard overnight and then go out there in the middle of the night and take pictures of them, like macro pictures of the snails sipping the watermelon. I would love to sit there and put them on my arm. I don’t know, it just helped me think. I really like snails a lot.”
Thanks to The Sundance Channel for the clip.
