I’ve been raving about the Teen Dream DVD for a while now. I often sit friends down in my living room and make ‘em watch several, if not all of the vids to each song on the album.
Up until now, the videos haven’t been online, but I’m so stoked to see Allen Cordell’s video for this song up. Its by far my favorite. I absolutely love the juxtaposition of the song to the violent imagery reminicent of 50’s zombie films all played up like an 80’s teen dream pic. People have such a visceral reaction to this video - they either love it or absolutely hate it or don’t get it. There’s no in between. And I think that, my friends, is what makes great art.
makes me happy everytime
that is all.
i want to make something powerful.
I just stumbled across this mind scrambling project called Morphologic. It’s a heavenly combination of art and science. The marine biology of Colin Foord and the spectral sounds of Jared McKay bring something so unique to the table that I seriously just can’t stop watching. Go cruise their blog for the goods. It’s really something you just have to discover for yourself.
From their “About” section:
“MORPHOLOGIC is a scientific art endeavor led by marine biologist Colin Foord and musician Jared McKay. With the aquarium as our primary medium, we explore the artistic possibilities of living coral reef organisms via HD videography and site-specific artworks. Our laboratory/studio is a state certified aquaculture facility perpetuating marine life within the confines of downtown Miami.”
it turns out that chimps actually lose their ability to discern themselves as individuals in later age, unable to recognize their reflection as themselves:…
what could be the utility of this?…
ernest becker couldn’t have said it better. from the denial of death wiki:…
when chimps (or any species, domestic or alien) develop an intelligence too great, that’s exactly the point at which they’ll establish something worthy of the name “culture.” they’ll absolutely have to, in order to deal with the ultimate dilemma: paraphrased from camus, suicide v. illusions.
