I had the privilege of editing together the official music video for one of my favorite Unwoman songs, “The City.” I didn’t shoot it, but I’m quite happy with it how it turned out.
My friend Olga grew up to her mom listening to Agata Kristi, Nick Cave, and Depeche Mode. She says that this song is about how “black is my favorite color” and “opium just for us. No one else.” You can’t go wrong. Well, maybe you can go wrong with it, with the possible racial subtext to the video.
Edit: screw autoplay, I’m not going to embed that shit.

The above video, of a lego bank robbery, is for Victimless Crimes, the fourth track on the album. I made it with the help of my friend Raven, who provided the legos and scene design, as well as helping with the animation.
Really awesome. I hate how usually people just program machines to play the mario theme or star wars.

I can’t believe there was an oi band that basically turned dark/new wave and I didn’t know about it until like a month ago.

Okay, turns out that industrial hip-hop didn’t stop in the 90s, and it has definitely stayed political. This song, by Meat Beat Manifesto, is from 2008.
