Smart Money :: OMS Sunglasses Hit The Streets

Old Man Skateboards is back at it again with the merch, and this time it’s in the form of sunshades.  You know how OMS does it with the DIY, and this commercial is proof of both the creativity and hilarity found within the OMS YouTube channel.  You can cop a pair for 10 bones by reaching out to oldmanskateboards@yahoo.com, or you can cop them via the Bandcamp page.

Insane Creations :: Astrokeyy Drops Gripping Visual For ‘The Hated Freestyle’

As usual, I found myself combing through the I Support ATX Hip Hop. Do You? group on Facebook, because I can always rely on finding something new and interesting to share, and today, as usual, it did not let me down.  I came across a YouTube video for Austin-based Astrokeyy with an ill thumbnail of his eyes whited out.  I’ve always been a sucker for a stark and arresting visual, so I clicked the link, and what I got was straightforward bars from the heart over a no-nonsense lowkey performance video that is enhanced by some subtle but wonderful AfterEffects work.  These definitely are not new or unique tricks used in the video, but they are definitely used well by Newhighfilmz for The Hated Freestyle.  Throw the video a like and a share, maybe even a comment, and keep your eyes open for more dopeness from all camps involved.

Real Talk :: Crew54 Drops ‘Wyld Gents Podcast’

Sophisticated tomfoolery… that’s what Crew54 calls it.  After successful forays into music, visual and YouTube, the crew is now breaking new ground in the podcast realm with The Wyld Gents Podcast.  M.O.S. and GChrist have always had personality and charisma, as well as undeniable chemistry, and the podcast is a chance to gain a deeper insight into that chemistry.  The two bring their natural rapport to the podcast, and the topics (which range widely in variety) are all addressed earnestly and honestly.  I’m looking forward to seeing what the two talk about in the future, and who knows… maybe ya boy will show up in the mix if they start inviting guests…

Second Wave :: My Latest Short Film, ‘HELP ME’, Now Streaming Online

Who knew that, out of all the genres of films I love, all the years I’ve dedicated to learning the craft, that the only thing I can apparently make are spooky movies?  What started simply as an idea of the visual of an abandoned home with a grossly outdated printer that kept producing cryptic messages has turned into something tangible that I can be proud of.  HELP ME essentially put itself together… it was one of the most uniquely organic projects I have ever worked on.

Thank you to Delano Taylor, Kelsey Huckaby and Colton Ferguson for believing in the vision and turning words on a page into characters an audience can connect with.  Thank you to David Marrs for always being supportive, and for allowing us to use a location that became the true star of the show.  Thank you to Soda Diet and More Eaze for allowing the use of your music… it brought an entirely new degree of engagement to the project.  Thank you to Steve Jones for jumping in on the project and earning an upgrade from script supervisor credit to producer credit… you brought some good stuff to the table.  Thank you to the Lost River Film Festival for allowing us to submit, and for granting it Honorable Mention status.

HELPMElrff

And thank you to you, the individual who will hopefully watch it, share it, like it and leave a comment.  The project was made for the YouTube faithful, as I have been among your ranks for years now.  Here’s to many more coming, and here’s to bigger and better projects in the future.

Looking Back :: The Final .::liquidstereoproject Show

It took many many years.  It took the rounding up of footage from multiple cameras.  It took finally getting an editing setup that could handle the magnitude of footage it would be forced to render, edit and so on.  And, after all of those hurdles, it took a full 24 hours to get it on YouTube, but it’s finally here and ready for the world : the final .::liquidstereoproject show.  This is comprised of footage collected from Atom ToddDave Brewer and myself.  Rather than choose the best moments, I decided to share it all.  The audio (and some of the video) is a little choppy, seeing as this was well before HD, but the feeling shines through.  I know I always say enjoy, but really and truly, I hope you do enjoy this… we left it all on the stage that night.

Tantra Coffee House :: Corporate Elvis meets Electric Mayhem

One of my favorite recent bands to work with is Corporate Elvis.  Guitarist Robert Andrew and Drummer/Singer Mike Hidalgo Pittman are quite the dynamic duo, and every time I see them, I see improvement.  Here are some highlights from our recent show at Tantra Coffee House:
