Happy-happy for DJ Shadow fans -- the "Six Days" video is available at Shadow's official site (follow the "Current News" link). I'd say that the video, directed by Hong Kong filmmaker Wong Kar-Wai, was "haunting and evocative" (like the song), but to be honest, it kinda reminds me of a cell-phone commercial. It has all of the hazy languor and saturated color of Wong's Happy Together (but not even half of that movie's soul or idiosyncratic charm), and the sort of stratospherically huge budget that brings out my worst liberal tendencies.
