United Colors ?

Thursday, September 25th, 2008

This is a great song by Santogold (an American songwriter, producer and singer who studied Music and African-American studies)  yet I have to admit that the video is uncanny, strange. The use of colours is extremely clever, the director decided to play on the traditionnal colour codes but it exposes the violence of our society.

I loved the song but the end of the video is rather disturbing and upsetting.

America’s Middle-class blues

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2008

This is a very good video, it’s subtitled, so it won’t be difficult for you to understand. It deals with middle-class people, their feelings in terms of money, education, politics and other everyday issues like food prices. It was shot in Kansas,  a rural state situated in the Midwest (the heart of America).
