East of Eden Back 2 The Hood

Scouring through youtube sure beats changing the channels on my TV. I've just seen the work of a director by the name of Chandler Wild. This is a short student-film-adaptation of the famous book 'East of Eden'.

Top 6 things from "East of Eden Back 2 The Hood" that make me laugh:
1. Teens acting like gangstaz (the guy playing the father character especially).
2. A Chinese guy acting stereotypically Chinese.
3. An Indian pimp that rhymes when he speaks.
4. A pretty funny drive-by scene
5. A female "hoe" played by a man (who eventually strips)
6. Profanity is censored for the most part, the only exception is when background rap music is playing

Now, the director already told me he noticed a lot of things wrong film-making-wise with this video so give him a break. Enjoy this little amateur goodie.

I never claimed to be a know-it-all in regards to music; but it has become overwhelmingly apparent that there are well over 50 (and counting) music blogs that are finding artists that I never heard of....Which is beautiful.
I guess some time in the near future I will plug what I humbly think is the cream of the crop...

For now (for those who are interested in potentially hearing stuff they haven't), what I've been listening to lately is Liz Phair's reissue of 'Exile On Guy Street', Fleet Foxes self-titled LP, and Bon Iver's 'For Emma, Forever Ago'.
Granted, it's more likely that you HAVE heard these albums - but if you're between the ages of 12 to 16 then you probably haven't heard these albums and you desperately need to.


Bon Iver playing "Skinny Love" on Jools Holland:

Fleet Foxes music video for "White Winter Hymnal":

Basically a video that's meant strictly for listening to "Ant In Alaska" by Liz Phair:

There Will Be Vader

I didn't make this video...
I just feel that enough eyes haven't seen it.
Hence it is being "broadcasted" via 'Here Lies BS'.
You will understand the genius of it if you've seen
'There Will Be Blood' and the 'Star Wars' films.
I'll go ahead and tell you to be patient, it gets funnier as it goes...
Enjoy 'There Will Be Vader':
