Diggin' the new Beyonce Videos

Or maybe they're not new-- I can't keep up with the kids these days. Not sure how much I like the songs themselves, though "Single Ladies" is insidiously catchy. But I saw this first one of the plane ride back this weekend. A cool concept. The first few seconds make it look like a PSA about respecting your woman, either that or a male enhancement ad, but get past that and there's a cool, without being overbearing, look at gender double-standards.

And the second, it's just fun to watch because Beyonce & her backup dancers are very good. Some of the Gwen Verdon-esque moves are a little wacky, but considering they're all wearing heels and probably corsets or control tops. . . Also, check out the now famous SNL sketch (I think this is it?)

As for this whole Sasha Fierce thing, I'm really not sure what's up with that, but looking at that robo-hand she's got on makes it clear that she ran afoul of a Sith Lord she's possibly related to.
