An American Tail Remix.

Last month I posted that fabulous Alice video and this week I received an email from Jacques Christo. He was so inspired by the video that he went and made a downtempo track from his favourite animated film: An American Tail (great choice!).

I think a little more interaction between the samples and the cutting of the visuals would help but i particularly like his opening when the beat starts! The music is quite beautiful – it’s a shame you can’t download it.

An American Tail has a great melancholic feel to it and I remember other animated films from around this time like All Dogs Go To Heaven, having a similar feeling – It’s perfectly suited for this kind of music.

Nice work Jacques – this is what the site is all about! You get inspired by something here, you go out and make something, and you can come back here and share it (hopefully inspiring someone else to do the same!)

Boom.

Music Video: Rapper Dumbfoundead’s Hilarious Response to Hollywood ‘Whitewashing’

dumbfoundead-safe

Hollywood whitewashing has been in the news a lot lately. One catalyst being the announcement earlier this year that Scarlett Johansson landed a lead role in the remake of Ghost in the Shell, and many wondering why it couldn’t have gone to someone of Asian descent. Korean rapper Dumbfoundead (Jonathan Park) offers up a humorous response, adding himself into a montage of blockbuster films and popular television shows, playing everyone from John Snow to Danny Tanner.

Park told to NBC News that he “wanted to flip the script on the conversation everybody was having about the whitewashing of Hollywood and ‘yellow-wash’ some of the most iconic films starring white male leads.”

This is definitely one of my favourite music videos this year! Watch Dumbfoundead’s “Safe” on Booooooom TV.
