Here’s a great video capturing the fifth year of the @powwowhawaii festival. I’m happy to report that there was an abundance of female artists this year – not always the case with big mural events!

Music Video: Eating Out “Pucker”

eatingout-pucker

Here’s a video for Vancouver punk band “Eating Out”, directed by Dave Ehrenreich with cinematography by Liam Mitchell. Doing drugs all day isn’t my thing but I feel like Eating Out’s video captures youth culture in the same way that old Linklater films and classic music videos, like Smashing Pumpkins’ “1979”, did. Watch “Pucker” below.

Funny and Creepy Video of the Day: “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared 4″

donthugmeimscared

My absolute favourite video series on the entire Internet (previously featured here and here and here) returns with a new episode. “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared” is terrific series of shorts by Becky Sloan and Joseph Pelling that utilize puppets, live-action, and animation to create a sort of bizarro Muppet world.

Every episode begins as a cheerful kids show and eventually shifts into something a little more creepy and sinister. Wonderfully dark humour, exquisite set and character design, flawless editing and art direction; this is as good as it gets as far as I’m concerned.

Watch “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared 4″ below!
