I have a temporary new flat mate, his name is Robin, he's alright but his incessant whinging about everything is probably gonna start to take its toll pretty soon.
He's an editor too. He's not as good as me but he knows how to use the burn film effect in AE so that makes him bearable.
There were some huge plans this weekend, hes just moved to the country and hasn't seen any of it yet, so I planned to take him to Vienna for a superhero themed/music video launch/birthday party. Sounds flipping awesome....
But we didn't go, no excuses really. Soz Corinna.
Saturday came, Mato, (the slightly more social one in the flat) enters my room in the early hours with "Im leaving now, you coming?", I grumble some lame excuse about not having a costume or not being able to afford the train fare and so he leaves without me. I then find myself spending 4 hours on youtube watching racist people fight on subways and talkshows.
By the end of the third youtube hour I start to feel a little pathetic and decide that if im not going to be remotely social this weekend I should at least be a little creative.
Last week I received a newly released album called 'Fremdscham In Reality' by a hip hop/glitch/free jazz artist called Minor Sick.
GET THE ALBUM HERE
Its a bit hardcore in places. Im too simple to deal with proper messed time signatures and anything more technically advanced than 'Single ladies- Beyonce'
But the album is drenched in huge beats that sound crisper than a burns victim munching down on a tube of paprika pringles.
So, myself and Robin decide its important to have something to show for the weekend. We start by taking a few long exposure shots of me frantically shaking in the dark, naked.
We end with both of us sitting in silence, either end of the room, throwing USB sticks at eachother.
How is the video? I cant tell, its cut so fast i cant really see anything. Did we waste the weekend? probably.
