Too bad for the poor video quality.

Shakedown: Love Game

shakedownlovegame.jpg

Just updated my old post about this peppy (and Not Safe For Work) music video with an higher quality clip.

“Love is a game, and this video cuts directly to the heart of the matter, using graphics in the style of Eboy and The Sims, but taking the “game” to the next level with some hot pixelized action.”

The director is Wilfrid Brimo, which you may happen to remember for his two gorgeous PSA for Aides.

Stick Magnetic Ribbons on Your SUV

suvClipBoard-1.jpg

A parody! A protest song! An impeachable offense!

The parodized song is Tie a Yellow Ribbon ’round the Ole Oak Tree, updated to the current events: Iraq, Iran, and all the other states whose name ends in -an. Except Pakistan.

The group is called Asylum Street Spankers. The song is not on their latest album, but only available as an MP3 download from their site.

Chopin’s Bicycle

chopinClipBoard-1.jpg

A video installation by Eric Dyer.

With the computer we are pushing past man’s empowerment by technology into his elimination by it. In the creation of ‘Chopin’s Bicycle,’ the production staff (the editor and the compositor) were replaced by the music staff: a music composition provided both the temporal structure (timing of cuts) and spatial structure (layered mise-en-scene). A computer-driven automated process made this possible. (Source: Ybor Film Festival)

OK, but who set up everything? ^^

Jada Pinket Smith in a metal band?!!

I could not sit through this but it is true. Cute little Jada is screaming and hollering in a metal band on the David Letterman show. One of the blunt comments:

i like jada…
i like metal…

but this is twenty ways of wrong! i thought i’d give it a shot… but no no no no no!

The word “no” is used very often in the comments. Good luck Jada, good luck world.

Jon Stewart interviews Pakistan President (dictator) Musharraf

Jon Stewart interviews Pakistan President (dictator) Musharraf

I am shocked to see Pakistan’s President on the Daily Show (as you all know I love). And though Stewart asked him tough questions, I think this is somewhat inappropriate. Pervez Musharraf took over the leadership of Pakistan in a coup, he has not been properly elected. His dealings with India have been shady. His dealings with USA have been better but also shady. This episode gives him too much credibility.

Watch part one & two

Another interesting element to all this is that Musharraf has not appeared in a lengthy interview with any other news media in such length and candidness. Why the Daily Show? And he is selling a book! Is he for real?

I also think Stewart is going to get a lot of heat for this. I understand Musharraf is a human being and has something to communicate but his actions warrant serious discussions, much more than what was held on the Daily Show.

Waking Life clips

Linklater’s Waking Life was one of those film that continues to rattle in your head long after the actual watching phase is over. Some scenes on the YouTube:

- Speed on the Brooklyn Bridge

- Bazin and the Holy moment (bad recording but it is interesting to hear the recorder get excited with certain parts, almost like reading a used book and finding the previous reader’s notes. Holy Moment?)

- Existentialism vs Finding meaning

- Telescopic Evolution (check out the comments)

- Dreams for free

- False Awakengings

- The rant

- Language

Indian Idol: Amey – Satrangi Re

The second season of the Indian version of American Idol had some classic performances (which I caught up with on Youtube). And in Idol tradition, the critic’s favorite, Amey, did not win. He did even make it to the top two. Among the performances I have been able to see, his performance for this song was my favorite.

The Fool Looks At The Finger That Points To The Sky

thefoolClipBoard-1.jpg

A remarkably cool CGI music video, realized by Aaron Bradbury and set to The Little Explorer‘s music.

An obvious inspiration: It’s not the End of the World. Less obvious: a Supinfocom movie named Louis, not available online at the moment. But you’ll see it soon, I hope… Well, it was not that similar after all.

On the author’s website there’s a whole load of download links, including cellphone and iPod friendly versions. Unfortunately, at the moment, it is almost down. Will check back later… Go for it now!

L’idee (The Idea)

ideeClipBoard-1.jpg

“Beginning in 1930, the animator Berthold Bartosch spent the better part of two years directly adapting L’Idée, a 1920 graphic novel by Belgian artist Frans Masereel, into one of the most poignant expressions in all animated film.”

Still quoting: “The soundtrack was written by Arthur Honegger and features ‘a new instrument of musical waves: the Martenot’. This later came to be called the Ondes Martenot, and is one of the first electronic musical instruments.”

Making something out of nothing

A college film where a badminton class becomes a scene from Reservoir Dogs, where fingers turn into gun barrels. Fun.
