In retrospect, I should have put the handicam on a tripod -- too late now, one of those CRTs blew up during my last show and I, uh, elected not to repair it.

You call these music videos "non-videos"?
Yes.
How is this different from a home movie?
You tell me!
Is there a reason why the editing stops being in sync with the music after the first 25 seconds?
I realized I didn't have enough clips to do that kind of cutting throughout.
Did you really submit a video like this to a video festival one year?
I did. I thought it would be better than someone's ideologically correct vision. There's politics in here if you look, though.

bad g**gle drawing of the day - the spectators

bad_spectators

As noted previously, Eric Schmidt's company greenwashes its diversity problem with an endless parade of cultural "others" on its main search page.

Above is a drawing cropped from the same picture as yesterday's bad G**gle image of the day, celebrating women's soccer.
These are the spectators, a happy melting pot of women waving tiny American flags. (With one male, wearing a lei.)
They are all reacting with identical robotic smiles as lady liberty smacks the ball with her shin.
The artist combines Norman Rockwell feelgood-ism with a kind of desperate propaganda style, like old Chinese Communist posters of happy factory workers.

Bonus: If you like women with tiny heads and big thighs, there is a monopoly technology company that openly displays them:

This somewhat resembles the work of Matisse, except the poor figure drawing is unintentional. He also had a better color sense.

The Incredible Hulk meets Pippi Longstocking?
Is it possible a human figure drawing could be more poorly proportioned?
How is it these artists always make the most dynamic moments seem utterly slack and lifeless?
Can this artist draw a round ball?
Would someone actually play soccer wearing a foam NYC tourist "lady liberty" hat?
Is that color supposed to be verdigris?
Is it better to kick with the toe or the shin?
Do soccer fields have small mountain ranges on them?
