wayne x eminem x drake…2010 grammy performance

this needs to be spread around so more people see the FAKENESS that the Grammy’s have become!!
THE SINGLE most important performance of the night…they effed up the sound (yes they broadcasted it this way). in addition to that, whoever was the light technician that choreographed this was not real impressive to me…pretty obnoxious actually.

this performance was really beautiful and seemed to be a good dot of the “i” on the decade. i am just so completely fed up with the grammy’s. they are stuck in a broad “everyone likes what we think is pop” mindset. they are run by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences which “is a U.S. organization of musicians, producers, recording engineers and other recording professionals dedicated to improving the quality of life and cultural condition for music and its makers.” which sort of makes sense to me as far as the voting…but what about who sets up the performances, and the presentation, and the production, and writing of the show?? they obviously spend more time on certain pop acts opposed to others. also, the indie music scene is rapidly growing (especially with younger people…the ones who care about “pop music”) and i suspect will soon reach the point where it is competing on an even ground with the majors. will the academy continue to ignore us as they do now?…that would be a major mistake imo if they do.
just some things to think about…

peace and evolve love.

vids…OK Go | Lowry

These videos have blown my mind…i know must repair it and take artistic action…

1. OK Go – “WTF?”

this is right inside my doorway. take an effect and play with it. have fun and orchestrate your art. that’s what i’m trying to do…

2. Lowry – “Whiskey”

more about "Lowry – Whiskey", posted with vodpod


this is a pretty fresh indie band i just discovered through the Guilt By Association Vol. 2 project in which they covered “Africa” by Toto. i feel like the video tells the story pretty well with not too much performance shots and not too much “couple” shots. the video is for a project called 99DollarMusicVideos.com…i think they accomplished it better than any one else i’ve seen on the site.

peace, and videLoVEs.


mos def…supermagic vid

this video’s incredible! it’s simple, the effect is fantastic, it’s very well produced. i like how dark it is…the contrast between his face and some highlights to the dark background is really evocative. i also think mos uses the flashing/shadow effect really well as he bounces.
great video…i look forward to learning about these kinds things i enter the telecommunications major here at school.

lupe fiasco…forever freestyle (live)

here’s a video from a recent show where ‘lu when in over Drake’s “Forever.” my guess is a mp3 of this will be on the new Fahrenheit mixtape coming the end of November.

yea…he is better than all of them except maybe em (maybe!).
peace, and remember to smile, love.


referee…way too dramatic

Sorry i’ve been out of it this week. I’ve been trying to keep up with my studies so i’m a little backed up on here.
I just thought i’d kick things off with one of the funnier videos i’ve seen in a while. Refs always seem overly dramatic as it is, so this dude takes it to ridiculous measures so it’s like an outrageous performance. I’m pretty sure he’s acting, but it’s still…graceful…

It reminds me of South Park from last night. It was similar except dealing with professional wrastlers. Silly shit…

Peace, and unnecessarily dramatic love.
