Awesome Nostalgia

Here are some awesome Nostalgia shorts fromt he 1980's.

First, from the old HBO series Short Takes, which was shown between films, a short horror film about a man-eating film. I give you Recorded Live

Second, a classic animation pitting pinball games versus video games for the fate of humanity. This is better than Futurama. I give you Arcade Attack.

This last one is an absurd video from Commander Cody and Video West

And these are the people we handed power over to, not the ones we took the power from.

Again, this is not the sign of a Democracy, but a Theocracy between different sects of the same nightmarish philosophy.

How does one end this kind of nightmarish philosophy without becoming part of a greater nightmare? Are we content to post about this Islamic garbage in our websites, mock it and then go to sleep with the knowledge that its not happening to our sisters and daughters in our backyards?

Do we submit to the idea of genocide and live with the killing of the guilty and potentially guilty? Or do we strive for education and live with the brutalization and killing of the innocent for generations to come?

Unvant Garde

I've never really cared for people who chase after the ever-elusive Avant Garde. The most poignant artistic metaphor before using it up and then looking for it elsewhere. Its like South Park's Heroin Hero. You're always chasing the dragon, but you never catch it.

Is it wrong to just look at clouds anymore?

Momentary Moments of Genius

AMVs are the staple of the YouTube visitor's diet. Usually they are a hybrid of unjustly popular Japanese animation and some equally obnoxious, overplayed musical chord that makes you cringe and wish you never left-clicked to begin with. However, every once in a while there comes along the perfect mixture of music and video.

These are three of those videos:

Why is this genius?
Because its a sincerely great song that has been sung by several bands with an overall ambiguous meaning despite powerful metaphors. Also because the anime used is one of those rare series that challenges preconceptions without losing sight of its original character development. Each part suggests strong violent imagery and together they produce a violent work of art.

Why is this genius?
Again, the visual character used here is a powerful icon and a satire of the bodyguard character used in the animation of previous generations. Also, the song is from the fucking King. Elvis Presley. So here we have a song about action sung by one of the all-time greats instead of a flash-in-the-pan one hit wonder and the single most action packed icon of modern animation.

Why is this genius?
Most AMV makers will stretch out their animation resources by using the same scene over and over again within the course of the same song. MajorButtons, however goes one step beyond and he uses multiple sources - mostly from 4chan. And he takes the time to find the right song to go with each clip. So you actually get several quality AMVs in one shot. Though most of his work gets deleted for content and copyright violation, MajorButtons produces some of the best AMV work out there. If the Amish used their handcrafting skills to make AMVs, this is what they would look like.

Well.. aside from the sexual references, naturally.
