Beyond a shadow of a doubt

By Samantha Anne Carrillo [ Tue Nov 20 2012 1:23 PM ]

Since its controversial release and subsequent rapid removal, No Doubt’s racist comeback video, “Looking Hot,” has engendered both indictments and shrugs. Marisa Demarco explains why perpetuating racist stereotypes and sexually violent themes in a pop music video matters in Plenty of Doubt.

The Elephant in the Room

With a national election looming, 2012 is a major political year. Director/co-producer Kevin J. Williams and his wife/co-producer Tamara are tapping into that zeitgeist with their independent documentary Fear of a Black Republican. The film explores why there are so few black Republicans and features interviews with such luminaries as former chair of the Republican National Committee Michael Steele, scholar Cornel West and commentators Tavis Smiley and Michelle Malkin. The film will screen locally on Saturday, July 7, starting at 7 p.m. at the African American Performing Arts Center (310 San Pedro NE, in Expo New Mexico). The married filmmakers will be on hand for a post-film Q & A. Admission is “pay what you can.”

Secret snake game on YouTube

By Marisa Demarco [ Fri Mar 16 2012 3:00 PM ]

Yesterday, while falling down a YouTube hole about weird jazz, I accidentally discovered some vids made just so users could enjoy an Easter egg. It’s been around since 2010, so I’m super late to the party.

Here’s what you do:

• Pause a YouTube video by clicking on the screen

• Hold down the left arrow key for about three seconds. The video will rewind, but don’t worry.

• Hit the up or down arrow, and the classic game of snake should appear on your screen. You can let go of that left arrow and begin controlling the snake normally.

People made special blank screens just for this purpose, though it works on any vid.

Greatest/strangest YouTube video ever?

By Sam Adams [ Tue Mar 6 2012 3:00 PM ]

I don’t even know what to say about this one. Apparently this video’s been around for the better part of a year. Why, then, has something so magnificent gone under my radar that long? No clue. And I’m not sure what strikes me as more unnerving about it: the robotically flawless choreography, that a five-minute (again, robotically flawless) mariachi-esque tune is being played by what appears to be 5-year-olds dressed as sailors, or the fact that I’ve never achieved anything half as interesting in my life.
