fave mid-mod youtube grab-bag

Postby L.A.kevin » Wed Jan 31, 2007 11:52 pm

I'm surprised no one has done this topic before, so I'll be happy to take the honors....

First, for your viewing pleasure are some music videos:

this one gets off to a slow start, but the graphics at the end are cool!

and finally (though the film is new, but the subject is mid-mod)

Hi Ms. Capri!

Thanks for the link to your YouTube site. That Quiet Village Jam is cest magnifique! And your performances, as always, put the tiny bubbles in my champagne!

It was wonderful seeing you and the Martini Kings play in Vegas last weekend. Any chance you might be putting that wonderful song "Tie Another Mai-Tai On" on your YouTube site? Scrumtrellescent!
:cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

Miss Capri,

Don’t you see your shadow or something like that tomorrow? Then there’s six more cocktails for winter or something like that.

We were at a party Saturday and several people told us our MCM house is on youtube. It was news to us. We were interviewed for a film a couple years ago and never heard anything more. It was filmed in our living/dining room because that was the only one finished.

Here's the link

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dEUYJNfnxkM

Please ignore the unpleasant white-on-white kitchen in the background, which is still awaiting renovation.

From the same film, Rockabilly Revival, are also posted clips on friends Ken & Mary Mottet, in their wonderful Century of Progress home:

Not a fave, but I found this on You Tube today. I'm not even sure if it's MCM.

Hey Nichols,
A while back you posted a great clip about a guy who gets a tape recorder and goes nuts layering a perky little tune with different instruments and whistling. I can't seem to find that post and I would love to see it again. What was it?

That would be the incredible "Multiple SIDosis" by Sidney Laverents.

Here's more about Sid from the NY Times>

A One-Man Band Who Created an Oeuvre

By MATT HABER

Published: January 25, 2004

IN the video for OutKast's "Hey Ya!," André 3000 sings and dances, backed by a band of seven digitally replicated Andrés.

The effect may have helped to make the video one of the year's most popular. But to fans of the outsider filmmaker Sidney N. Laverents, the computer graphics trickery looked familiar. Mr. Laverents, an engineer and self-taught film hobbyist, created a primitive version of the same effect in "Multiple SIDosis," a nine-minute film from 1970. Working at home in suburban San Diego, he used a reel-to-reel, two-track Roberts recorder, a retrofitted 16-millimeter Bolex camera and eight musical instruments from his vaudeville days as a one-man band.

The star of the film? The paunchy, middle-aged Mr. Laverents — a square with a comb-over and ample musical talent...

I debated for a long time, but I think I need to introduce a little Sammy Stephens to this place.

fave mid-mod youtube grab-bag

Postby AJ Fisher » Fri Jan 18, 2008 9:16 am

i enjoy atomic/space-age media. if you do too, i recommend going to youtube and searching for:


Image
"Duck and Cover"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C0K_LZDXp0I

- 1950's film for teaching youngsters what to do in case the Atom Bomb goes off nearby. it's a bit disconcerting how matter-of-fact the announcer is in referring to such a devastating event.

if you are into vintage NASA space animation, try:

Image
"Pump Up the Volume" by M.A.R.R.S.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eGPhUr-T6UM

- a 1980's music video featuring 50's, 60's and 70's NASA film footage and conceptual animation of space-flight.

about the last one

Postby modfan » Mon Feb 11, 2008 10:52 pm

That's when almost everyone smoked...

Interesting that the 'club' was called 'Is this Flip Necessary' which might now be a name of a tv show on HGTV. My how times have changed from a nonsensical club name to somehow morph into something to do with home remodeling/real estate.
