Michael Jackson the King Of Pop dies! CLICK HERE FOR The Story. The guy was a totally nut case, but the world did lose a great artist yesterday. No matter what the guy did or didn't do in his private life, he was certainly one of the greatest entertainers in history. In the BOTR section I posted reaction videos about Michael's death, along with 4 of my favorite music videos.
Man In The Mirror
Chris Cendana remembers Michael by singing his favorite song.
University A Cappella! The Documentary
In 2009 Ben Folds released a greatest hits record, of sorts, sung entirely in a cappella. The album, Ben Folds Presents: Unviersity A Cappella! features two tracks performed by Ben himself, but the bulk of the material was performed by various university a cappella groups. Here's a video about the experience.
Olivia Thai does a great job with this One Repbulic song.
You Came Out
This is the official music video for the We Have Band song. Created by W+K creative team Ida Gronblom & Fabian Berglund and Blinkink director David Wilson. The face paint animation film is made up of 4,816 separate stills. Each and every frame was hand-painted, shot, wiped off and redrawn, slightly differently for the next frame in order to create a seamless sequence. This time-consuming process involved the band members lying still for two consecutive days in a studio. In order to animate the singing bit, lip movement was created by animating a painted mouth on the singer Dede. This involved breaking the lyrics into phonetics and giving each sound a specific mouth shape. To make this as realistic as possible all the mouth shapes were painted on Dedes face individually and then shot.
The Scratchophone is a portable Scratch instrument, featuring a turntable, a special tonearm, scratch mixer, and a pair of speakers. It can even be used with a cordeless power supply.
Please Don't Leave Me
I never really liked this song, but Alyssa Bernal does an alright job with it. The best part is the good news she has after the song.
Old Guy Dancing For Jesus
Make a joyful noise, and dance like a fool.
