You can also see Romanek, Jay-Z and Rick Rubin talking about the making of the "99 Problems" video here.

And here are a few more videos recently posted for Web viewing:

(Smog)'s Bill Callahan sings from the TV as a news anchorman (and he really looks the part, too) in the video for "I Feel Like the Mother of the World."

"This Year" is the first music video in the 10-year history of the Mountain Goats.

The White Stripes, decked out in 1940s fashion, perform for a crowd of children in an old theater in the elegant black-and-white video for "My Doorbell."

Fiona Apple watches a bearded man sing her own song to her in this clip from the video for "Not About Love." And Apple's Web site has a cute clip of her playing her first ever composition here.
