I'm going to be joining Everything Is Terrible and Cinefamily's Mondo Squad for a screening of a bunch of our videos in Los Angeles on Saturday at 8 (Cinefamily is located at 611 N Fairfax Avenue, which means nothing to me because I don't live in Los Angeles, but I will be there!). If you live in L.A., you should come. Even if you don't, you should fly to L.A. for the night because this will be the best thing that ever happened in a live setting (best thing since Andrew WK delivered a keynote speech at the festival just a few hours before us, that is). There's more info at the festival page, and the description of the show I'm taking part in is:
Cinefamily’s grabbing the zeitgeist by the nutsack and squeezing the video juice out of the YouTube for all of our viewing pleasure! Tonight we celebrate two of our favorite memes in the viral video world: “supercuts” and “trash compactors.” You know, like when TV Carnage cut together every “Gimmie your badge…and your gun” moment from every shitty cop movie ever made, or when FourFour did a mashup of every time someone said “I’m not here to make friends” on a reality TV show — that’s a “Supercut.” And when that anonymous editor compressed 120 minutes of Wicker Man Nic Cage insanity into a high-powered two-minute H-bomb of hilarity — that’s a “Trash Compactor.” This show features our favorite pre-existing classics in these two categories, and a group show bursting full of brand-new premieres by Everything Is Terrible, FourFour, Cinefamily’s own Mondo Squad, and more. I tube, you tube, we all tube for YouTube! Tonight’s show features a live appearance by online video mashup maven FourFour!
I'm a maven, guys. It feels spectacular. Buy your tickets and watch me bask.
