I wish I went bat-crazy like this when I was in college. Oh wait, I did.
“This is an AURORATONE produced and created by British filmmaker Cecil Stokes for use in the treatment of mental disorders - definitely a kinder, gentler alternative to the electric-shock treatments which were then in vogue! The soundtrack features Bing Crosby and organist Eddie Dunstedter.”

The competition removes Vine from its context within a feed—these are Vines conceived to be judged alongside feature movies—though Hofmann said “It’s whatever people want to do with it. I don’t think they’re taking it too seriously.” He compared Vines to outtakes: “You never see anything from the outtake unless you have an outtake reel or something like that. The barrier to the outtake is a lot lower to a post on Vine. The real-time nature really contributes to that. There’s not a need to vet it as much, you can just put it out there.
I just went down the rabbit hole on my old videos on blip.tv
I was their first real user and modern lover. When the era of early online video ended for myself, I mostly stopped using the account as a capsule of an intense time in my younger days. The web was awesome, like “Summer Camp” type awesome. Which is different than the type of awesome the web is now, which is more “THX type” awesome.
That blip.tv keeps it up there for me is a beautiful historical document of a largely undocumented time period.
I say undocumented because I believe a large majority of the video from those years has not survived to be usable on the modern web, or has been taken down for various reasons (hello, free services!).
This is a screencast I did for EVILVLOG, a beautiful moment of chaotic video communication when there really wasn’t a place to do that online yet.
Check the part of the page that says how many new videos were uploaded online that day. One day was EIGHT WHOLE VIDEOS!

I miss Peru.
This is the second issue of fuckyoudraculas videozine, a video compilation curated by me. The theme for this one is VHS DREAM. I asked some friends and artists that I like to submit dreamy and/or nostalgic videos recorded in analog videotape format (vhs, hi8, etc).
The theme name is inspired by a Deerhunter song.
