2Pause: 15-Year Music Video Curation Comes To An End


If you’re young (under 21) and not apart of the Music Video Renaissance of the late 1990s, more than likely, you’re living without the ability to greatly appreciate curated media like some of us, who are 25-35 years old. To be fair or less harsh in reason, that’s fine but sadly you and I couldn’t really have a healthy conversation. When I talk, I don’t want to thoroughly or overly explain myself because it makes the experience less than fun.

Now, to my point, an online database exists that once thrived as 2Pause, has an arry of hand-picked and over 1,000 featured videos — that’s a lot of man-hours — which span from sonic animation to no budget media. In the video you’ll watch, you’ll see that the team curated for fifteen years within nine categories. Visit the archive. Be inspired, for it is the journey to admire and not the destination that matters much.

9 categories

Sonic Animation
Stop Motion
