I Am Not Your Grandma — But She Might Be

I REALLY like this video. It was a great way to start my morning. Brian Newman had tipped me to it, but it had sat in my ToWatch box too long. Glad it escaped.

Psychedelia Redux


EncyclepdiaPictura seem to be part of a growing wave of mind-blowing filmmakers and artists hellbent on accessing the deep recesses of our lizard brain.  When Corbin slipped me the first taste of their work (knife) I time travelled back to my march through Utah’s Paria Canyon in my late teens when I was covered in mud and feeling akin to the Yeti as I scared the various more sane hikers who expected to commune with common nature.  Awww, fond memories.  Bjork since found them and they gave her a great 3D vid too.  

Others in this wave include the band MGMT (check out “Time To Pretend” — if you haven’t been already among the 2.5M who did on YouTube or their interactive video game) & Assume Vivid Astro Focus (featured above).  For a taste of the past, there is Hipgnosis.  Turn on the love light baby.  thanks Mr. Reynolds!

Music Videos For Airports

I travelled again last week, and although I wasn’t stuck on the tarmac for 4.5 hours this time, I did have a cancelled flight and several hours delay.  Brian Eno’s music needs an update.  Life in airports has changed.  It does feel like a bit like this great video though.  Somehow I found the ending quite sad.  

There’s also a good little interview with Cornelius at the Mangobot blog.

This site could not have been built without the help and insight of Michael Morgenstern. My thanks go out to him.

Help save indie film and give this guy a job in web design or film!
