Vibing On Some Homie Videos

Matt Payne is an aspiring surf filmmaker in SoCal. He posted this afternoon spent with his brother and friends farting around Venice Beach. They hit up the skatepark, looked at crazy people, the usual. It's a nice way to spend a couple of minutes. Matt says it's for his Art 110 class. Hope he ditched so he could 'spend the day scouting the location & filming.'

Here's the trailer for the short film he's working on. According to his vimeo page, this 8mm piece will be done soon. Obviously, Johnny Depp will be narrating the whole thing.

Completely unrelated but who doesn't like a self aware dude, here's the best deal in town via these kids Primary Flight who'll be painting up Miami for Art Basel.

The Slog Movie & Desperate Teenage Lovedolls

November 21st, 2010 The Cinefamily in West Hollywood will be showing a double feature of both Dave Markey's The Slog Movie and Desperate Teenage Lovedolls. Both are solid lessons in the SoCal punk scene shot on Super-8 in LA in the early 80's.

The Slog Movie is an amalgam of scene kid footage and live clips and interviews from every seminal hardcore band when they were young bucks: Circle Jerks, Wasted Youth, TSOL, Fear, Black Flag, the list goes on. In the actual film, there's commentary from Keith Morris and his ilk as an added bonus. Here's a clip.

Desperate Teenage Lovedolls is a fictional narrative about a couple of bad chicks who go the sex/drugs/rr/breakshit route to put together their band.

Buy The Slog Movie & Desperate Teenage Lovedolls from WE GOT POWER FILMS. If you're in LA, head to the screening at CINEFAMILY, & I'll see you there.

Odd Future: Photo Uno Momento

Good for the Odd Future crew that they sold the eff out Webster Hall in New York last night & represented LA, appropriately. And also appropriately, by all accounts, they literally told everyone who was at the show from the record industry (and there were many) to 'fuck off.' These guys are doing something interesting. If you haven't downloaded any of their stuff you can get it all for free on Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All. Photo by Marksman Turner.
