    At Houston Tattoo Shops, "Nothing Gets Done Unless Music Is Playing"

    Late last year, I asked my daughter what she wanted for Christmas and she said she wanted the entire family to get tattooed together.

    Spike Jonze's Top 9 Music Videos

    There's no doubt that Spike Jonze is an enigma of a director and artist. He's worked in all types of mediums: he filmed bullriders at the Astrodome, changed the world of skateboard videography, and visually recreated the brilliance of Maurice Sendak's Where The Wild Things Are.
