cannonball (1996, 32.6MB, 3:35 min.)
This was recorded at the Blockbuster Video grand opening in Daphne,
Alabama, US, on December 6, 1996. They had a video karaoke machine
with a bluescreen, and you could choose your song and they would tape
you and give you a copy of the videotape. I think I might have also
had the option to select “Sci-fi” background or something like that.
The whole process took about five minutes and this was the result.
Some close friends refer to this as the highlight of my artistic
career, and sometimes I am inclined to agree with them.

Video makers of the world, the race is on to rehabilitate & assimilate this move
into our vocabulary..

Says Tom Moody: Recommended: Guthrie Lonergan’s 9 Short Music Videos.
Reminiscent of BEIGE’s cheesy blue (green?) screen vids,
each is built around some corporate sound
(ringtone, Microsoft boot-up noise, DVD intro)
that craps up our daily lives. Also good:

definitely worth the wait.

Chinese government censorship.
Check out this site, there’s some great stuff there.
Even better, make a short & relevant movie & send it in.
