About The Video

This is a sound collage visualscape taking you on a journey into the world of space alien true believers, Area 51, UFO conspiracy theories and shadow governments…

Most of the video material used in this project was taken from found videos and are about real events or real people…

I appropriated them, altered them, sampled some audio clips, and created a new story for your auditory and visual pleasure…

Enjoy!

Definition

5150 – from Wikipedia

Section 5150 is a section of the California Welfare and Institutions Code (specifically, the Lanterman-Petris-Short Act or “LPS”) which allows a qualified officer or clinician to involuntarily confine a person deemed to have a mental disorder that makes them a danger to him or her self, and/or others and/or gravely disabled. A qualified officer, which includes any California peace officer, as well as any specifically designated county clinician, can request the confinement after signing a written declaration. When used as a term, 5150 (pronounced “fifty-one-fifty”) can informally refer to the person being confined or to the declaration itself.

Video Collage | onehumanbeing self-portrait

Here’s a video self-portrait I did in early June, 2008… but really I’m using this post to test a video plug-in for Word Press call WordTube that embeds video in your Word Press blog page…

How do you like this presentation? Is the video quality good enough? Any problems?

Thanks in advance for any feedback,

Video | Where It’s At | Beck with Jessica Dobson

This is our bible-study friend Jessica Dobson who is touring with Beck as his guitarist on the Modern Guilt tour. She started in June, and has been playing all over the place since then.

Tonight our bible-study group (I was sick and stayed home but my wife went) got to go up to a bar/club in LA to see a secret Beck show. Unfortunately Beck was sick also and the show got canceled…

Jessica is the worship leader at our church – Grace Harbor here in Long Beach. We meet at the Bixby Park community center every Sunday at 10ish – come check it out if you like. Any way, Jessica brings a sweet, old style, almost Carter Family-like sometimes, feel to the worship and you know it’s from her heart and where she’s at.

And with that, here’s the video: Where It’s At by Beck Hansen with Jessica Dobson on guitar.
