    Whoever decided websites with that scrolling mouse thing was a good idea should be kicked in the shin or something.

    Yes, the scrolling viewing of each image, followed by the close up once one presses on a picture, could have been done in a slightly different way. Though, I cannot complain, as they used my photograph for New Jersey.

Music Video: GTA “Red Lips feat. Sam Bruno (Skrillex Remix)”

We’ve got a contender for music video of the year! Director Grant Singer takes a page out of the Nabil playbook in this surreal visual for Skrillex’s remix of GTA’s “Red Lips”. Fantastic set and costume design here; a terrific follow up to Skrillex and Singer’s “Burial” video, both of which feature the bone-breaking choreography and dancing of Brooklyn’s Adedamola Orisagbemi (better known as Ringmaster Nugget). You’ll wanna watch this one twice.

Watch the official video for “Red Lips” below.

Together the two draw in synchronized performance, with D.O.U.G. mimicking Chung’s movements in real time using a ceiling-mounted camera and computer vision.
