Flashback Friday: Emergency Broadcast Network

Great editing of analog video, edited to create music, from the 80s and 90s. EBN was pretty amazing. There are tons of EBN videos on YouTube, but here are 3 good ones.

Typography Kinetic: Spoken Word Poem: 'Signing Your Life Away' by Stephen James Smith Irish

Nice type. I have a friend named Leon who is a Scottish poet. If I ever have time, I'd love to animate some of his poetry. He has such a lovely accent.

Are you a music video fan?

Stereogum has a Vimeo channel with lots of new videos for your inspirational needs. They are pretty much all indie pop (it's Stereogum!) but I've been missing music videos. They just don't make them like they used to.

So what was it that made the old videos so great? I can't seem to put my finger on it.
Why do current music videos seem to be missing that je ne sais quois?

Georges Méliès, The First Cinemagician

Brain Pickings posted a great article today on the filmmaker Georges Méliès

melies"Earlier today, we looked at DJ Spooky’s exploration of the history of remix culture, in which he makes a passing mention of Georges Méliès — the seminal French filmmaker considered by many the father of special effects and referred to as “the first cinemagician.”

Read more:

Working in the late 1800s and early 1900s, Méliès pioneered techniques that are still among the most potent creative arsenal of today’s animators, from stop-motion to timelapse to dissolves to multiple exposures.

N.A.S.A. Project: "Strange Enough," ft. ODB, Karen O, Fatlip

N.A.S.A. is one of those projects that seems to come up with really cool videos for every release. Can't say I'm digging the track all that much but the video is really cool. Lots of great 2D animation.

Here's another N.A.S.A. video, with a song I really like (Santogold... love her!)

N.A.S.A. "Whachadoin?" (feat. M.I.A., Spank Rock, Santogold, & Nick Zinner)
