Time’s Up for This Cliché


Bryan Edmondson:

Decided to re-blog this post by Eric Baker. A prolific writing mentor whom I hope will follow me on Twitter,as soon as all those federal charges against him are dropped and the allegations of running an unlicensed casino are withdrawn formally. Even if he really is guilty

Andy Warhol made many unique contributions to popular culture. I wish he would have made one fewer.

When the pop-art guru said, in 1968, that everyone will be famous for 15 minutes, I don’t think he intended his words to become the de rigueur insult in response to every single last stinkin’ internet article about a current celebrity.

I happen upon this hackneyed cliché at least a dozen times per week, and it always irritates. But, like Joan Crawford discovering a wire hanger in her daughter’s closet, I finally snapped this Tuesday. The online article that sent my synapses into electric fury appeared on a popular entertainment site discussing an alleged feud between early ‘90s pop singer Sinead O’Connor and current pop singer Miley Cyrus over the usual nonsense from which celebrity feuds are contrived.

The feud is irrelevant. The reader responses, however, made me very…

I made many versions of the clip in the source monitor, one is seen in the project. This is my master clip timeline. Can I take sequences of parts, or the whole time line and edited =separately and =non destructively.? I wish to apply color mattes and key  frames to different clips, and run various tests. I do not want to effect this original Master Sequence by nesting and source patching or targeting tracks. Screen Capture from Adobe Premiere Pro CC.

A shoot-em-up, action-movie style music video?


Can someone please cram an entire 2-hour action film (one fierce enough for Quentin Tarantino) into one single five-minute viewing experience?
Yes, the “Biting Elbows,” can; and they do a commendable job in the music video for their single, “Bad Mother Fucker.”

On no occasion have I seen a cinematographer bring a music video to life in such a manner. The video depicts an assassination mark escaping from a stronghold of syndicated mercenaries. [Yes a guy’s movie]

Tunefully, the song “Bad Mother Fucker,” starts with classical music, which evolves, rising to a crescendo of hard rock, and finally a (proficient) rap style vocal lyric section.
