Kno13ody rap videos, V 3

https://mattkprovideo.com/2019/04/16/kno13ody-rap-videos-v-3/

Two music videos for Austin based poet and hip hop performer Kno13ody.

“Open Yur Eyez”

She said “You’ve been running through these streets all week”
I hear “big money spending all the profits from your sinning”
Degrading all these women
having that unprotected sex but can’t raise their own children
with their mind on their check talking about making millions
But never responsibilities or Sensibilities
She said “You’re part of a bigger problem That’s even if you ain’t trying to be”
She she never would have said shit if she doesn’t have this love for me
I couldn’t say shit. It was like my tongue had abandoned me
She said, you know Id love to have you here with me cuz I could give you all the love that you would ever need
Please just open up your eyes You can truly see.
Come walk with me and be the best that you can be
There’s more to life than running all night through these streets
Then she removed the veil
So my eyes can see
Then she removed the veil so my eyes could see.
Whether wrong or you’re right for this life is your life
It reflects through the day the things we do at night
My advice use your heart use your sight do what’s right. Just look inside
And Open Your Eyes!
Whether wrong or you’re right for this life is your life
It reflects through the day the things we do at night

Then I was awake as if from a very deep sleep
Still couldn’t speak to many visions for me to still see
Everywhere I pointed my finger to ended up back at me,
but the shit I was unhappy with most was reflections from me
I don’t think my mind was ready
For my thoughts to go so deep
my shit began to overflow my toilet beneath
That was no phone for me to call. It was only me
Standing in the midst of this All
Upon This Earth
It was all from my hands work
A tainted soul, just bound to reap just what I sew
With this world be so freezing cold. You got to adapt to it. Are you gonna die froze?
It’s the cycle if is broken there be conseqences
This recital be quite vital to your common senses
to your own truths
Can you bear to witness? I’ve seen the problem in myself and I tried to fix it
To your own truth Please bear to witness
seek the problem with self attempt to fix it.
Whether wrong or you’re right for this life is your life
For this life is your life Is your life that?
It reflects through the day the things we do at night
my advice use your heart use your sight do what’s right
Just look inside and Open Your Eyes!a

Cool LAIKA commercial

https://mattkprovideo.com/2018/10/23/cool-laika-commercial/

 

This youtube commercial played before a video I wanted to see.

Normally, this annoys me.

But the “behind the scenes” footage of the making of the stop motion movie  CORALINE was fascinating to me.

I did a youtube search on some of the words used in this video until I found the Laika / 3D printer commercial.

The did SOME sculpting, but most of the replacement faces were done with a 3D printer.

I love seeing the odd but brilliant ways they made the stop motion animation.

Mixing old tech hand moved stop animation and modern film technology.

Rare Old HD Special Effects And Action Scenes

mattkprovideo.com/2018/08/13/rare-old-hd-special-effects-and-action-scenes/

At 1.28 that looks pretty real. I am assuming / hoping its a camera on dolly track and someone tugs it on a robe at the last second. I think the footage is speeded up.

2.40  I think thats Hitchcock’s STRANGERS ON A TRAIN

Strangers on a Train (film)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strangers_on_a_Train_(film)

I 3.22 we see the words “dan marruffo ”

I googled “dan marruffo  race car movie”

and found :

The Dan Marruffo footage is 2 minutes in….  I suppose thats documentary / newsreel footage of a real race.

 

I’ll keep searching and keep you posted.

Christopher Robin (2018) Review

mattkprovideo.com/2018/08/08/5326/

I just saw the new Winnie the Pooh movie. Oops I mean “Christopher Robin”.

When I first saw the Trailer

I thought it was the Disney Corp trying to cash in on the critically acclaimed:

 

Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017)

And now that I’ve seen it…. I still kind of think that.

I enjoyed parts of it. Its technically amazing. HOW did they make those animals move? Puppetry? Advanced CGI? Or… most likely… a combination of all of them?

The characters were a clever hybrid of the original storyboard drawings and Disney cartoon models.

The real Christopher Robin:

Ewan McGregors a great actor, but this guy looks more the part:

The story is a bit remiscent of Spielbergs HOOK . The work a holic dad who cant find time to be with his family.

It also reminded me a bit of DREAM CHILD, TED, and the Harry Potters…

WHO was this movie for? Small children? Jaded Adults?

And THIS “Christopher Robin” has almost NO connection to what I know of the real one ( and I’m not even that much a Pooh buff).

If they can use the “magic tree” to teleport from London to the hundred Acre wood, why couldn’t they use it to transport back?

It has marvellous moments, but the ending was bit too much “Disney Ex Machina”
