Damn this guy’s good, another Pogo creation:
This is my remix of an original song by SaraSinger42: youtube.com/SaraSinger42
The video was shot by Sara’s mother, singer and song writer Jackie Messenger: youtube.com/JackieMessenger. Sara is part of a beautiful family who have always been wonderfully supportive of me.
This track came about almost immediately when I found Sara’s channel. I wondered what her song would sound like with a beat, so I spent around 10 minutes knocking together a drum sequence before layering in her song. 45 minutes later, I seem to have spontaneously put together a complete track.

It’s like these 1940s movies were made just so, 70 years later, they could accompany the music of Clothesline Revival:
Clothesline Revival has a couple HV connections. They helped create a mess in our Food Fight episode. And we produced the NPR Story “Clothesline Revival’s ‘Long Gone’” (also check NPR’s “Music Review: ‘Of My Native Land’ from Clothesline Revival“).
CR samples extensively from ancient audio archives, especially in their first two CDs, Of My Native Land and Long Gone. Their latest, featuring “Voice of the Lobster” — the song in the vid — is They Came From Somewhere.
Here’s some real hyperlocal community journalism for ya, with a beat, “The Grand Rapids LipDub;”
The Grand Rapids LipDub Video was filmed May 22nd, with 5,000 people, and involved a major shutdown of downtown Grand Rapids, which was filled with marching bands, parades, weddings, motorcades, bridges on fire, and helicopter take offs. It is the largest and longest LipDub video, to date.
This video was created as an official response to the Newsweek article calling Grand Rapids a “dying city.” We disagreed strongly, and wanted to create a video that encompasses the passion and energy we all feel is growing exponentially, in this great city. We felt Don McLean’s ‘American Pie,’ a song about death, was in the end, triumphant and filled to the brim with life and hope. – Rob Bliss, Director & Executive Producer, Status Creative
Stereo headphones required. Earphones work best.
A virtual 3D recording of my track ‘Upular’ playing through a pair of club speakers as you walk around the venue. Someone requested this and I thought it was a good idea. Enjoy.
3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, an exploding volcano, 2 cameras and almost a terabyte of footage… all to turn 3 ambitious linear concepts based on movement, learning and food ….into 3 beautiful and hopefully compelling short films…..
= a trip of a lifetime.

Need more Maccabeats? So did Adolf:
It’s also their only LP, and it’s out-of-print. But the Aussie band left behind some amazing/amusing videos. And Modular Records insists “a deluxe 10-Year Anniversary treatment” is on the way. Till then, here’s the title track:

As part of a ProPublica investigation into the deep, dark toxic chemicals we penetrate Mother Earth with to make her cough up “natural” gas, here’s “Fracking: The Music Video– My Water’s On Fire Tonight:”
The video is by David Holmes and other J-students at NYU’s Studio 20 . Sez they: “The best explainers are direct, concise and easy to understand. But investigative journalism is rarely any of those things, instead reflecting the messiness of real life.”

HV are spoken word evangelists. But sometimes it’s best to keep your mouth shut. Like in this one-minute piece of performance art on the US House floor, delivered by Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY) on the House floor, April 14 2011:
Filmmakers Will Hoffman, Daniel Mercadante, and Julius Metoyer III play with our yearning for balance, and reveal how beautiful imperfect matches can be.

Germans in the Woods: Joseph Robertson was an infantryman in the U.S. Army during World War II, where he fought in the Battle of the Bulge. The stark black and white images in this short haunt the viewer, just as Robertson is haunted by his memories from that battle. (Directed by: The Rauch Brothers. Art Direction: The Rauch Brothers.

Great artistry is grand larceny. So here’s your manual for “How To Steal Like An Artist:”
Every artist gets asked the question, “Where do you get your ideas?”
The honest artist answers, “I steal them.”
Nothing is Original. It says it right there in the Bible. Ecclesiastes: “That which has been is what will be, That which is done is what will be done, And there is nothing new under the sun.”
1 + 1 = 3.
Every new idea is just a mashup or a remix of previous ideas…
You are, in fact, a mashup of what you choose to let into your life. You are the sum of your influences. The German writer Goethe said, “We are shaped and fashioned by what we love.”
The Artist is a Collector… More…
