Spreading fear and mayhem in the visual arts.

3 Videos for Your Brains, Ears and Humour Glands

Just a couple of interesting visual and aural gems I stumbled upon in the past week that I wanted to share with you.

First up is the epic 3-part documentary All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace by Adam Curtis.

Shown here is the first episode entitled Love & Power from which you will be guided onto the next two.

It has already gained some notoriety due to its strange mix of absolute brilliance followed by sometimes rather brutal simplifications but all I can say is that you should watch all three parts and you will undoubtedly come out having learned something. The topic is extremely broad and being brave enough to take on a project like this is an achievement in itself and a rarity in today's TV landscape (actually, I don't even own a TV - I'm just being patronising, heh!)

The next one is a short but sweet aural pleasure by the great John Maus that came to me via Substrom. The footage is from Lars Von Trier's Element of Crime.

John Maus - Cop Killer from George Tanasie on Vimeo.

And finally, something that's funny cause it's true by Charlotte Young:

That's that. Over and out.
