This is a short music video I made in 2003. It’s a Paul McCarthy inspired bricolage/remix of live recordings, the music written by myself and performed by my high school band Boner and voiced by ex-dead kennedys singer and spoken word activist Jello Biafra as the High Priest of Harmful Matter. The words are from Alan Blooms’ Closing of the American Mind. Furthermore you will see generic television images of war and celebrities, blacked-out FBI text-files, and John Wayne Gacy paintings. Originally filmed on DV, edited in Adobe Premiere and taped onto VHS. Then digitally demastered again by filming a television screen and the final cut is made with iMovie.
RGB ergo sum
I’m on TV, therefore I am / I watch TV, therefore I am
