Video Wars-“Stop the War” by Speak the Hungarian rapper

June 16, 2009

Oh man…this is just so….awesome!  Combine a thick European accent mumbling about “Sometimes, people make a war,” with shouts out to Tupac Shakur and you can’t go wrong.

Bring on the Video Wars, Jonathon and Izzy.

John McCain inspires…….fear.

August 30, 2008

I still think this isn’t as funny as some of the Obama parodies, or even as funny as a pro-Obama video, but hey, it’s still got some good points, and I like to consider myself an equal-opportunity offender who is solidly opposed to both candidates for President this election. John McCain makes me more than a wee bit nervous when it comes to war. He makes G-Dub seem like John Lennon. No, seriously.

“Heavy Metal in Baghdad”

August 14, 2008

Looks interesting….

Official Website

Heavy Metal in Baghdad is a documentary feature film that follows the Iraqi heavy metal band Acrassicauda from the fall of Saddam Hussein to their escape from Iraq. The band members were bred on American heavy metal albums, learning to speak English by listening to Slayer, Metallica and Slipknot. Playing heavy metal in a Muslim country has always been a difficult, if not impossible preposition, but, after Saddam’s regime was toppled, there was a brief moment for the band in which real freedom seemed possible. That hope was quickly dashed as their country fell into a bloody insurgency.

Directors Eddy Moretti and Suroosh Alvi traveled to Baghdad to find Acrassicauda, Iraq’s most famous heavy metal band. From 2003-2006, Iraq disintegrated around Acrassicauda while they struggled to stay together and stay alive always refusing to let their heavy metal dreams die.
