The Blight Blog, the Blight Blog,
Doesn’t everybody love the Blight Blog?
Its tasty and its juicy,
Charlie Brown Loves Lucy,
Frozen peas and mustard jam,
President Bush and Uncle Sam,
And Blight the Clown Loves you in the morning….
….er excuse me, Blight the Clown had the keyboard for a second there. I smashed his noggin with a bowling pin so that I may continue with this weeks fancy new blog…
So the week in review:
The week was relatively uneventful, I took dickface..er..I mean Blight to his weekly therapy sessions at the NY Clown experimentation brain washing and testing facility. I am trying to get this yellow faced bastard ready for his weekly video blog. He is planing on bitching and complaining about things that no one cares about on video to present to the hyper critical completely insane Youtube Vlogging community, but right no he can’t even speak properly. Once I glue his teeth into his face and and surgically remove the marbles from his mouth, he might then be ready for this ridiculously stupid project.
I also started a new painting this morning. It’s gonna be something, not quite sure, but it sure will be something. Hopefully you will get to see it next week.
And for the first time ever I ventured to the Downtown Clown Review. I recommend you go it will make your life better.
I am gonna make another attempt to hold the famous YOUTUBE SHORT FILM AND VIDEO ART LIVE STREAMING event this Wednesday night (Feb. 20th). Please everyone update your youtube channels and come share your madness. If it’s video and its on youtube and you are in the chatroom, it can be streamed and we can all chat about it.
So log into the SHORT FILM AND VIDEO ART STREAM ROOM
Wednesday night at 10PM eastern time. THIS WEDNESDAY Feb. 13th
Here below is my latest contribution to the Youtube garbage pile.
Another clip from my video art archives:
“Good Morning Sleepy Head”
So this is Blight Productions very first super 8 short film. Produced back in 1998 before I had any access to nonlinear video equipment. It was edited with tape, reel to reel. The quality of the image is so poor because it was transfered to video by way of projecting it on the wall and taking an old piece of shit VHS camcorder and video taping it off the wall. A few years later the VHS got digitized onto my Ulead video editing system (A 486 Windows 95 Computer with a 2 gig hard drive and 16Mgs of ram.) So that I could add some titles and music.
This is basically, a-day-in-the-life-of, type of story. We follow a guy who gets up in the morning to go to work. When he later gets home get begins to freak out about his missing girlfriend. There is a knock on the door, it is a “police detective” that proceeds to beat the shit out of the man. Then we realize that his missing girlfriend is dead in his own bed.
That is pretty much it. It kind of sucks, but I figured I would post it up here on Youtube in the spirit of continuing the archives and sharing my wack-job creations. Oh yeah, the music is all mine as well. Very early 4-track recording.
Don’t forget to rate and comment on the video.
