AWFUL VIDEO ON ALL LEVELS POSSIBLE YET I CAN'T SEEM TO TURN OFF!!!
Beautiful is boring. "Very good" is boring.
In a new world with too much stimulation, things that get noticed are the extremes. Here is an example of "extremely bad". This is one of the worst song/videos I have ever witnessed...but I will not forget it anytime soon.
Everyone has some form of A.D.D. clobbered with overloads of stimulation and information every hour. The only thing that holds our attention are things that are interesting or get a gut reaction. I understand too well the frustration of hard working unsung creative types taking weeks working on projects that gets little or no attention in contrast to someone else making something quick and inferior, but shocking and controversial. As a technical artist , It kills me to say this it but making beautiful, technical pretty things is boring. After a while our minds need other activity. Beautiful is uninteresting in the same way passionate newlyweds get bored when the fresh smell wears off when no other spices are added. What stays interesting are the fringes and oddities that get a reaction.
If we put our judgements down for a minute, there is a lesson to be learned from those we call "crap" wack" "bad" yet who are getting exposure. This is about standing out, not watering down your craft.
Making something so offensively bad has better odds of attention rather than "so good". Look at their video hit umbers. Their chance of getting a record deal are far greater than a talented singer/ songwriter who offends no one.
And now the clip.
