i want one!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY YOUTUBE!!!

I SRSLY LOVE YOU MORE THAN ANYTHING!
AND TO CELEBRATE YOUR FREEKIN BIRTHDAY IM GON POST SOME OLLD YOU TUBE FAVORITES! YEAHAYAYA








RIP SHAYE :(

 
eric fournier, the man supposedly behind one of my favorite things in the universe SHAYE SAINT JOHN has apparently died of gastrointestinal bleeding.  :(
Shaye's videos were what sparked my interest in internet culture and performance through youtube back when i was in art school.  These videos gave me a hope that my art would soon find a place in this world and that video was the way i was supposed to communicate.  I am deeply upset that there will be no more videos from shaye/eric and i know shaye is on the internet in the afterlife i just need to find a chatroom to communicate with har. 







Shaye Saint John is the fictional star of a series of "triggers," short films directed and co-written by Eric Fournier. Saint John may or may not be Fournier, either a character (such as Tyler Perry's cross-dressing Madea) or a persona (such as a drag queen).

Triggers feature rapid camera cuts, morphed sound, negative exposure, and crude special effects. Shaye is typically the only human on-screen (and also the only character with audible dialog), though an array of secondary characters portrayed by burnt plastic dolls make frequent appearances. Throughout the triggers, Shaye bestows history, personality, and speech on these recurring doll characters, thus turning them into recognizable members of the Shaye Saint John cast. Dolls include Kiki, Kirsten, Hagatha, and others.

Shaye's purported background is that of a model and actress, and she still reveals aspirations and commitments to doing both, despite a supposed accident that left her quadriplegic and disfigured by burns. Shaye has four prosthetic limbs and utilizes a wheelchair, though her mobility and ability seem only minorly affected. For example, she can still walk, dance, and operate a telephone and a cash register. She seems not to be aware of her disfigurement, referring to her legs as though they were made of flesh, suntanning, and only making rare references to her accident on-screen. She wears a white mask that conceals her face upward from the upper lip, and she sports various wigs. Her chin is sometimes covered in duct tape. For clothing, she generally wears loose linen dresses that conceal the body beneath.

She writes on her webpage, "I am an entertainer, I am a model, I am a singer, I am a magician, I am an actor. I am so many things! I am also the worlds record holder for having the most problems!"

Her webpage, which communicates a love for outsiders and strange art, claims that she lives on a compound for physically challenged people, and that the "triggers" are documentary-style snapshots of her real life there, recorded by her therapist Fournier. Some of these triggers, however, are scripted with rising action, plot developments, and suspense.

No commentary or insight about Shaye Saint John has ever been presented to the public by her creators. She can be seen as a satire of models such as Paris Hilton. Her triggers lampoon the conventions of beauty, anorexia, consumer culture, and so forth.

POGO

whoa.

http://smokeandmirrorsblog.com/
Pogo is an emerging 21-year old electronic music artist in Perth, Western Australia. He is known for his work recording small sounds from single films or scenes, and sequencing them to form new pieces of music. Often described as ‘Dream Pop’, and ‘Trip House’, Pogo’s music and videos have attracted a large and devoted following that continues to grow every day.
His most notable track, Alice, a composition of sounds from the Disney film ‘Alice In Wonderland’, was received with much success gaining 3 million views on YouTube as of July 2009. Pogo has since produced tracks using films like ‘Mary Poppins’, ‘Harry Potter’, ‘The Sword In The Stone’, ‘Hook’, and ‘Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory’.

Upular

Video for Pogo’s track ‘Upular’, composed using chords, bass notes and vocal samples from the Disney Pixar film ‘Up’. The track also features a small number of percussion samples, including an obvious kick drum, crash cymbals and hi-hats.
‘Upular’ marks the first ever Pogo mix of a Pixar film. The closing advertisements have created much debate of whether or not Pogo has been endorsed for his work. The release of ‘Upular’ also marked the unsettling deactivation of ‘Alice’, ‘Expialdicious’ and ‘White Magic’. We expect an official statement from Pogo explaining these events in the near future.
