I Made A Short About Pooping

It’s getting around the time of year when I made my first film, The Bench, so I decided to make another silent short film. Phantom, tells the story of one man’s strange bathroom experience.

I some how manage to shoot it all in the family bathroom without being interrupted or caught. I live with six people, so that alone is an achievement. I had a lot of fun making it and I hope you will enjoy it!.

P.S. I am slowly raising money for, A Bird in Hand. I hope to have it re-edited and back out there early next year.

 

GO WATCH: Xavier: Renegade Angel

Describing, Xavier: Renegade Angel, is a little difficult. The Adult Swim show had two seasons from 2007-2009 before it was canceled, but honestly it amazing that this was a series at all.

The series follows, Xavier, the “wise”, “mystic” that drifts from place to place “helping” people.

The show is delightfully bizarre. The animation is half-assed, but in a oddly charming way. It has the  highest PPM (Puns Per Minute) ratio of any type of media I have ever seen.

It is kinda hard to explain, but it is a wonderful show. Trust me!

Ethan’s Favorite Music Videos

Music videos have a bad reputation. I will agree that the majority of them are bad, but there are some that rise above.

Here are my favorite music videos in no particular order:

Kendrick Lamar- ELEMENT

I really love the vision of this video. It is so clear and well executed. The cinematography is beautiful and conveys a wide breadth of emotion.

Modest Mouse- King Rat

The animation in this video is so quirky and weird. It fits the tone of the song perfectly.

Transit- I’m So Indie

The video (and the song) is really funny especially if you’re a closeted hipster.

The Verve- Bittersweet Symphony

A simple idea executed perfectly!

Nirvana- Smells Like Teen Spirit

A little time capsule of 90’s grunge.

J. Cole- False Prophets

I think this video encapsulates Cole and his music perfectly.

Tool- Sober

This stop motion video conveys the tone of the song with very interesting and creative visuals.

The Shins- Simple Song

Tells an engaging story.

The Talking Heads- Once in a Lifetime

Abstract weirdness.

Devo- Beautiful World

Dark humor!

Wall Of Voodoo- Mexican Radio

I don’t even know.

Beastie Boys- Intergalactic

Giant. Robots.

Eminem- Stan

It hits you like a freight train. No sugar coating.

Johnny Cash- Hurt

A little package of despair and regret.

Hopsin- ILL MIND OF HOPSIN 7

The feeling of an existential crisis.

Imagine Dragons- Radioactive

The video is infinitely better than the song, also puppets.

Gorrilaz- Clint Eastwood

Wacky Gorillazness.

Weezer- Island In The Sun

SPIKE JONZE!

Peter Bjorn and John- Young Folks

It’s all about conveying tone people.

Rhythms del Mundo ft. Arctic Monkeys- Dancing Shoes

Yo balio mucho.

Katy Perry- Last Friday Night (TGIF)

A guilty pleasure.

Taylor Swift- Shake It Off

A self aware time capsule of 2014.

Gwen Stefani- Hollaback Girl

“Super kawaii.”

Weird Al- Amish Paradise

Pretty self explanatory.

The Lonely Island- Jack Sparrow

I like movies.

Bo Burnham- Repeat Stuff

Brilliant satire.

Soundgarden- Black Hole Sun

Bloodhound Gang- Fire Water Burn

Funny premise executed well.

Wheatus- Teenage Dirtbag

Warms my withered heart.

Rated E For Edgy

YouTube has been “cleaning” up the site for advertisers. If content is deemed as offensive it can be demonetized, locked as private, or even get you banned from the site. A lot of content creators, but especially politically conservative and independent channels have been effected.

I didn’t think I would be affected because I don’t make political content and I am a tiny channel.

I was wrong! A video that I had posted on my main channel about being afraid of Tumblr was deemed too EXTREME for advertisers.

NOTE: This video was private for a like month because I was transitioning the main channel to more serious content. I did upload it to CutesyDoodle.

The video in question:

The joke is that this guy has an unpopular opinion, but is so afraid of the backlash he goes into hiding. That’s it. What I am saying doesn’t matter. I could say, “Kitty face” repeatedly and it would have the same effect.

The unpopular opinion was that we should judge a movie by its own merits, not by who made it. I know this is really fringe stuff, but I digress.

I do find it amusing that Google would go out of there way to bother a video with 35 views. They truly are the people’s champion.
