For those of you that watched and shared the Kony video, did you feel (just a teensy bit) that there was something a little off about the whole thing?  Not the video per se but the entire explosion of discussion/criticism that followed in its wake?  Did you have this odd feeling that by sharing the […]

How To Make A Real Reality Show

On February 14, 2011, in Culture & Media, Uncategorized, by admin

We’ve all had our share of reality TV. From the pioneering Real World episodes to Survivor and Hogan Knows Best; there are more reality shows than there are hours in the day to keep up with them! Although the reality TV phenomenon is no longer cutting edge, it still captivates millions of viewers and continues to inform a mass cultural viewpoint of what “normal” behavior is. With all these years of indoctrination under our belts however, there is one simple lesson that we should be learning from all of these reality shows…they’re not real at all.

Category Smashing: Why Our Culture Hates Labels

On February 10, 2011, in Culture & Media, Uncategorized, by admin

Have you noticed that our culture hates categories?!

There is a strong underlying disdain for clear-cut, single-item categories and labels for things. What used to be “cars” and “trucks” is now “hybrids,” “cross-overs” and “SUV’s”. Old music genres like “classical” and “rock” have now been outmoded by creative new crossbreeds like “trip-hop” and “acid-jazz.” I recently shot a music video for a band whose self-described style was “post-melodic death-core!”

Happy Holidays Vs. Merry Christmas: A Fabricated War

On December 22, 2010, in Culture & Media, Faith, Uncategorized, by admin

It starts sometime around Thanksgiving on television or maybe by the checkout lady at the supermarket. “Happy Holidays,” we hear. “Merry Christmas,” someone says. It won’t take long after the first days of well-wishing for the age-old quarrel to start up again. “It’s ‘Merry Christmas’ not ‘Happy Holidays’!” People will begin to argue that we should not say “Happy Holidays” but instead say “Merry Christmas” because it is only out of fear of offending people that we have kicked the “Christ” out of “Christmas” and we should not forget the real reason for the season by adopting the mongrelized “Holiday” salutation in lieu of the Christian one. Well, the unfortunate news this season is that it’s all been a hoax. The whole thing. No one is offended if you say Merry Christmas. Few Christians are actually put out if someone says “Happy Holidays” to them.
