Arrested Development SAD WALK

WATCH IT HERE!

If you have never watched Arrested Development, just know there are so many great moments other than these. But something about the Bluth’s sulking away to the tune of the famous Peanuts piano music is just so god damn perfect + god damn relatable.

WATCH IT HERE!

This short film has left me in awe of what we can teach ourselves to create. It is one of the installments of a larger project that is being created based on “the basic building blocks of nature.”   Don’t watch before going to bed. Also, I promise I’m not trying to hypnotize you.

Strangers with Candy

WATCH IT HERE!

Another series from me this week! Strangers With Candy is a Comedy Central cult classic starring Amy Sedaris as Jerri Blank. Jerri is a 46 year old ex-con going back to high school to get her education. Her love of trouble making and weakness for hallucinogenics leads her into many a sticky situation. The bizarre humor and look of this show are completely it’s own and I highly recommend you watch it all.

All That Jazz

Screen Shot 2017-03-08 at 5.25.15 PM

WATCH THE TRAILER HERE!

This semi-autobiographical and eerily prescient feature from famous musical choreographer Bob Fosse (aka that dude who invented jazz hands) is a funny, sad, and above all else, grandiose look at how we grapple with death, and how our attempts to cheat the big sleep are often the things that bring it on the quickest. In addition to near-perfect pacing, acting, and intercutting for maximum effect, Fosse used a number of sonic techniques to bring us into the head of his alter-ego Joe Gideon, and force us to feel his denial, anger, bargaining- well, you get the idea.

I Don’t Feel At Home In This World Anymore

WATCH IT HERE!

Sundance Grand Jury Winner I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore is an expertly crafted debut film from Macon Blair. You may know Blair from his excellent performances in Blue Ruin and Green Room, and now, with his directorial debut, Blair takes his audiences on a ride through Coen Brothers-esque territory. There is always a sense of dark fun; story twists and turns; macabre-like characters; and, of course, ultra-violence, in this revenge film that follows Ruth and Tony, two neighbors bent on finding Ruth’s stolen laptop, and the perpetrators that committed the crime.

Naked Giants // Easy Eating

WATCH IT HERE!

Seattle based band Naked Giants rock it out as usual in this video for their track ‘Easy Eating’. The guys take the stage after the school dance has wrapped, and all who’s there to witness it is the lone janitor. Surrounded with a warm glow, the video gives 80’s prom vibes in all the right ways, resulting in an adorable, kitschy feel. This band is stellar, and I can’t recommend them enough.
