The Latest In Artist Defamation: Fake Videos

Posted in Music, Video with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 5, 2009 by Production Team

A couple weeks ago somebody linked me a video of Beyonce’s performance on the Today Show, with a comment akin to “omg wtf.” I thought, what in the hell could warrant such a reaction from a Beyonce video? Thinking maybe she shows outrageous side-boob or top-crack, I gleefully followed the link.

What I found is the work of a master.

That master, however, is not Beyonce. The visuals of the video are from her real performance, but her vocals are awful – jaw-cringingly, eye-wincingly awful. Someone who is obviously super busy, not to mention content with his life, is creating viral videos slandering artists he presumably doesn’t like.

Warning: What you are about to see may disturb you and family members.

A Coldplay one also came to my attention last night:

Now, I’m not particularly enamored with either artist, so this is not a huge deal to me. The problem, though, is that now it is going to become impossible to distinguish the real videos from the real bad videos. In other words, how are we supposed to know who can sing worth a damn anymore?

See It To Believe It

I rarely come across people who can beatbox better than me… but I must say, I’ve been taken.

Dude’s gotta have like a vocal chord implant or something. There’s just no way.

ZOMG, Michael Jackson is Weird??

Posted in Art, Events, Music, News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 28, 2009 by Production Team

Ok so you know how when people go broke they make matters  significantly worse by desperately selling off the ridiculous shit they owned super super publically, showing their ass completely to the public, further disgracing their image and humiliating themselves and their loved ones? And then all those criminal accusations that were sorta ambiguous when they surfaced and resurfaced come roaring back like Mufasa when everyone sees what was inside that person’s house? But then they get embarrassed or whatever, and maybe realize there was another way to make their debt back, and so they cancel the auction once a bunch of people have already seen it?

No? You don’t know what I’m talking about?

Oh, right…. there is only one MJ.

And “the real MJ” was again partially exposed recently when the Beverly Hilton hosted the Michael Jackson collection. Just check out some of these pictures.

“‘If I can only find a white man, with a black man sound, I could make a million dollars’ Sam Phillips, Sun Record.” Ok.

Two original compositions by MJ (top) and Mccully Culkin. Duhh obviously…

Now excuse me while I go back to my regularly scheduled life and pretend none of this ever happened.

Gorillaz just dropped a revealing documentary entitled “Bananaz” about the geniuses behind the animated concept band and some insight into their creative process.

If it involves Damon Albarn, it’s gonna rock. And it does, so it will.

Watch the full documentary here.

Stevie Wonder’s 19?? release “Greatest Hits”

img00226-20090419-17251

We do not know much about this mysterious Stevie Wonder compilation, but here is what we do know….

It is a Bulgarian release.
It is strictly 80’s Stevie.
It has sleeveface potential.

The vinyl art is pretty sick as well…

Finally: somebody is able to reach Kanye

Posted in Music, News, Video with tags , , , , , , , , on April 14, 2009 by Production Team

South Park recently took shots at Kanye – nothing new or unexpected from Trey and Matt and frankly, it wasn’t even that funny of an episode. Watch it here.

But amazingly, Kanye wrote about it on his blog, and was so moved by the satirical criticism of his own highness that he pledged to reform his ways (part in bold sums it up):

SOUTH PARK MURDERED ME LAST NIGHT AND IT’S PRETTY FUNNY. IT HURTS MY FEELINGS BUT WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM SOUTH PARK! I ACTUALLY HAVE BEEN WORKING ON MY EGO THOUGH. HAVING THE CRAZY EGO IS PLAYED OUT AT THIS POINT IN MY LIFE AND CAREER. I USE TO USE IT TO BUILD UP MY ESTEEM WHEN NOBODY BELIEVED IN ME. NOW THAT PEOPLE DO BELIEVE AND SUPPORT MY MUSIC AND PRODUCTS THE BEST RESPONSE IS THANK YOU INSTEAD OF “I TOLD YOU SO!!!” IT’S COOL TO TALK SHIT WHEN YOU’RE RAPPING BUT NOT IN REAL LIFE. WHEN YOU MEET LITTLE WAYNE IN PERSON HE’S THE NICEST GUY FOR EXAMPLE. I JUST WANNA BE A DOPER PERSON WHICH STARTS WITH ME NOT ALWAYS TELLING PEOPLE HOW DOPE I THINK I AM. I NEED TO JUST GET PAST MYSELF. DROP THE BRAVADO AND JUST MAKE DOPE PRODUCT. EVERYTHING IS NOT THAT SERIOUS. AS LONG AS PEOPLE THINK I ACT LIKE A BITCH THIS TYPE OF SHIT WILL HAPPEN TO ME. I GOT A LONG ROAD AHEAD OF ME TO MAKE PEOPLE BELIEVE I’M NOT ACTUALLY A HUGE DOUCHE BUT I’M UP FOR THE CHALLENGE. I’M SURE THE WRITERS AT SOUTH PARK ARE REALLY NICE PEOPLE IN REAL LIFE. THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO DRAW MY CREW. THAT WAS PRETTY FUNNY ALSO!! I’M SURE THERE’S GRAMMATICAL ERRORS IN THIS… THAT’S HOW YOU KNOW IT’S ME!

Call me premature (sometimes that’s accurate, sorry ladies) but if we actually see a new, reformed Kanye West, let me be the first to nominate everyone involved with South Park for a Nobel Peace Prize.
