THE TREES—THEY WERE ONCE GOOD MEN> by Todd Boss

THE TREES—THEY WERE ONCE GOOD MEN a poem by Todd Boss from Motionpoems on Vimeo.

This motionpoem was created by Emma Burghardt. Music composed and performed by Debra Barsha and Daisy.

Motionpoems is a volunteer organization that is made of just two people—me (Angella Kassube – designer/animator) and Todd Boss (poet). I started animating Todd’s poems and it was such a great experience for both of us, we decided to bring more poets together with other animators and filmmakers.

FUCK SHIT STACK > Reggie Watts

One of the comedic geniuses of his generation, Reggie Watts’ work is not quite spoken word, not quite rap, it’s hilarious.

Looping his own vocals, beats and quirk, Reggie takes the loop pedal artform into his own dimension by means of his sense of humour. After a string of unique apartment based live videos, FUCK SHIT STACK is his most ‘official’ music video, and it takes apart the gangsta lexicon that now dominates popular cultures as effortlessly as Jay-Z creates a hit record – and the two aren’t disconnected.
