New live acoustic up on Youtube featuring Loss of Eden!
This time, instead of being naked, we’re trapped in a little TV!
Yup, we live adventurous lives.
ps -It’s a Chinese version of one of our songs
After days of planning and preparation…the fastening of tapestries to the wall, the positioning of the Virgin of Guadalupe and The Coming Insurrection on the mantelpiece, the crafting of crotch-leaves and the sewing of hair extensions…
We have finally filmed our great masterpiece:
Loss of Eden Uncovered
(where we bring you more music, less clothing)
There’s no turning back now. Gaga cover + nakedness + The Coming Insurrection is sure to be a recipe for Youtube infamy to last across the Ages!
(by Ages we mean minutes in this, the Aeon of Twitter-heads. It’s sort of like converting back from cat years.)
With the wind in our hair and the Duraflame log warming our butt-cheeks, we are poised and destined to become the Charlemagnes of the internet!
Or just continue to labor in obscurity. You decide:
Watching the new Lady Gaga/Beyoncé video for Telephone is like Where’s Waldo for the new millennium. How many product placements can you find?
I found: Virgin Mobile, LG, Diet Coke, PlentyofFish.com, Polaroid, Wonderbread, and was that Mayo by Kraft?
Pretty good, huh?
On youtube, someone left a comment that asked, “What happened to artists taking pride in their work?” No, he wasn’t berating the new video! Silly. This viewer was very concerned about artists “making cheap crap” for music videos, and was overcome with praise for the Telephone video and all of its creativity.
Because creativity looks real good ‘n’ stuff. And like so many things that look real good ‘n’ stuff…
Creativity takes money.
Music artists no longer make record companies money – or enough money – and we’re looking at the most “successful” ones here. To be sure, the record companies aren’t seeing 1990’s Madonna dollars from all this, and if they’re not seeing the big dollars, creativity doesn’t really fit into the budget.
But Gaga and Beyoncé? These rich girls wanna be pretty and hot and have videos that are pretty and hot too – you know, with great lighting and makeup and of course…
The Pussy Wagon.
Luckily, products like Virgin Mobile, Diet Coke, and Polaroid all want to be in pretty advertisements too!
(Not sure if they require the Pussy Wagon on their rider for TV appearances).
Boy, nothing says creative big budget music video like big budget corporate dollars. It’s really the only way to be pretty these days.
