Some Sick Videos. That’s It.

March 3, 2010

Take it as one of the reasons we don’t post everyday or just a testament to our own false sense of superiority (either works!), but it’s become something of a Lifting Fog mission to not allow this site to become a compendium of Internet paraphernalia. You know the stuff: Downfall Hitler mash-ups*, bizarre music videos** — the endless and endlessly inane stream of clips and images and links that keep us from writing our novel (it’s about a society disconnected) or even getting to that article we bookmarked on avoiding procrastination. “Dude, this is the SICKEST video I’ve ever seen. Starts kind of slow, but you have to watch the whole thing!” will probably be the last thing we hear before collapsing onto our keyboards and embracing warm, sweet death. Lifting Fog doesn’t want to be a party to that! We refuse to drink the Kool-aid***!

…But sometimes the videos really are the sickest you’ve ever seen. And what can you do?

Vodpod videos no longer available.

This “History of Western Art”-inspired Hold Your Horses! video is pretty French and yet PRETTY SICK.

Two more SICK videos after the jump, because of the rule of three.

Lifting Fog Declares War on the Haters

Say you made a promise to some people. A very specific and, in fact, easily met promise. That promise goes unmet for three months. Those people (for the purposes of this post let’s call them “fa”– who are we kidding, “fans” is just ridiculous!) wait and wait. In the cold. In the rain. When they finally give up on you, they give up HARD. You’re considered “dead”; “a liar”; even “Stalin-esque” by some of the crazier elements of the bunch. So what do you do when you finally try to fulfill that long-forgotten promise? What can you possibly say that eases the pain of those lost months; rebuilds bridges you had so carelessly burned down and PISSED ON as you quietly walked away? Nothing, really.

This is just awesome:

Right? Of course it would have been infinitely more appropriate to post this three weeks ago (when the fireworks were still firing), but Flood Immunity means I can operate outside your traditional timetable. And isn’t this animation sweet REGARDLESS of holiday affiliation? Acquitted of all charges.

The guy who made this, PES, might not sound familiar to you… but you’ve definitely seen his work. He’s promoted Coinstar and Bacardi, among other well-known brands, and his distinctive visual style is really something to behold. Check out his website and ponder your own lost artistic dreams.
