BLOW BY BLOW INTERPRETATION
The Lipstick clip is powerful metaphor. Oh! And there is mascara too!
The 'I want to *ucking tear you apart clip sets a good tone'
I love that, cause it's unclear who's saying. Doctors, parents or me. Ambiguity
Shit! It that a gas mask?
Hahaha!. You're right, a paintball mask bought on line by Max for $2. He's quite resourceful. But I love that it looks like a gas mask. Going for a very World War 2, 1950's Armageddon look
The intro text sounds like it should have been in your very first episode, as you are explaining what you are doing. Its pretty depressing.
I purposely kept it back so that people understand I'm not all about sensationalism. The next episode is Flo with the Go, and that explains all about the actual project - thought I should do that after 30 episodes!. Everything I do is arse backwards.
The dew or moisture on the lens feels like tears, and is effective. The Sepia work at the start seems a bit dark, I would have liked to have seen more of the mask. The sound during the sepia part fits the work (3.03).
I hadn't thought of the rain on the lens as tears. I really like that. I hope other people get that impression. With regard to the darkness, I was trying to replicate what it is like on mind altering drugs - I was trying to achieve a suffocating feeling, but I will have a look at the darkness in the correction edit.
(3.15) interesting connection to Psychotropic drugs and other countries banning these films.(I wish I could be banned in some countries - oh how I envy you).
Hahahaha! My website is blocked in Saudi Arabia, Iran and a couple others around the region. I am fascinated that someone somewhere actually looked at it and said 'No, our peoples shouldn't see this, this is too subversive'. That is so hilarious!
(3.38) The message is clear. Music still fits well.
(3.54) Nice GITMO reference - very now...
Seriously, if we're in the business of fucking people up, I think we need to work out what we're going to do with them 1. Kill them . 2 Warehouse them forever - because if we release them, we just created some issues that are going to come back and bite us on the arse.
(4.28) Cute polka dot boots
Bunnings. $15. Bargain!
(4.57) This is leading back to your parents isn't it!
(5.07) Oh! Its a paint ball mask!
(5.29) for a nutter, you make a lot of interesting points
Nutter!!! LMFAO!. I think I will have to use that in an upcoming episode that details all the names I've been called as a badge of honour. Nutter goes on the list. I love it!
(5.41) "I must have a dark side if I 'm to be whole". Powerful powerful statement!
I can't condemn psychiatry, because Jung was very enlightened. But I do worry about psychiatrist who work with the military and facilitate human experimentation
(5.56) are you playing in the mud? Looks like fun! I think all dark sides are 'dirty' That's why they are dark. We all have one.
It was friggin cold!
(6.07) some DEEP Jung Stuff there.
Deep, but hopefully it comes across as reasoned and reasonable
(6.23) Now that's a depressing thought - always something to ruin our lives....
(6.35) Free will thoughts - very deep. The music has been going for a long time now - time to change the mood?
(6.40) Oh good, it changed right on cue!
Hahaha! That is so funny, cause that is what I put so much time into, making things change just when people think it should. Timing is one think I am very anal about
(7.17) Different people dance in the rain in the mud in the nude in polka-dotted wellingtons!
(7.39) The music fits well with the 'car clip'
That car clip is actually the music video for that song, I cut the music video into the footage. I liked it as a technique. I get to speak narratively on 2 levels - footage level, and film clip level. Could be confusing for some.
(7.43) Unicorn - LOL
:) And oldy but a goody
(8.10) well if you are the anti-christ, isnt that a good thing on some level. God knows the bastardisation of Christ has fucked the world, and may be the basis of why you we abused by your parents. The video here is good too - getting weird.
Getting weird Hahaha!. If you know the movie Donnie Darko - that quote is when he gets up and says it to a preacher.
(8.22) fuck, that thing about your Dad wanting a boy and got you cut me deep Shrek.
(9.33) Do you REALLY need to keep calling yourself a slut? You don't scare me
I use these words as a rebuttal to society. If you call yourself the worse words possible, it's funny to then watch people who disagree search for disparaging terms. Cause if they call me a name that I already call myself, they are in fact agreeing with me. It's all very meta.
(10.10) so mush desperation in the 'Who are you' clips and the filtered vision of you without the mask! I like it.
Did the messaging in the last section come across clearly. I had to toe a fine line there between taking a position - and coming across like a conspiracy 'nutter' (see, I'm using it already)
And so its ends where it began.
I love that. It ends where it begins
OK, So, it IS VERY POLITICAL. It is VERY personal as well. The masturbators are going to hate it.
I love this kind of shit. Well done again to you and Max. I want to run naked in the rain and mud now.
Hahaha!. Thank you Bernie. I will have to get your blow by blow on every upcoming video. It's like having a focus group giving real time feedback.
Keep it up, both of you.
