Greetings readers and viewers! Wow, its good to be back at (the hypothetical) Cluster 1 headquarters. As Media Specialist, sometimes it is required to go to the source and create some of that media ourselves. After a journey to Sasquatch! with our staff, I have returned from shooting videos to finding and posting them here for your viewing pleasure. So, its good to be back, but make sure you check out all our footage from Sasquatch! as well.
Without further adieu heres whats new.
W-H-I-T-E Liquid Skull – If you think the song title is cool, wait until you hear it and see the video; soothing overtones while old-school CGI plays of a body floating over the landscape (think Toonamis Reboot).
No Cover Episode 1: Start Me Up – Our new dramedy series starring the Bay Areas Trevor Marcotte and Kevin Waldvogel depicts the story of Randy and Marshall, two music obsessed buddies with a low budget, but a big appreciation of rocking. Watch as the two try to get their band lifted off the ground .if they dont kill each other first.
No Cover Episode 2: My Band – In this weeks episode, Randy decks out the garage and plots out the bands strategy to reaching the top, but Marshall seems to have other plans.
MUTO – In this wall-painted animation, you combine wonky photography with insanely trippy animation, as this painting slowly takes over the city streets.
Pixels – 8-bit video game characters invade New York. Ive always wanted to see what a game of Pacman would look like in Manhattan.
Free Beats – 48 hours after Obama won the election, this guy went out and shared his beats with the world, only to get a plethora of interesting MCs, poets, musicians and children to get up and take the mic. Specialists Note: This video is amazing ..do watch.

Girl Talk – The king (or queen) of mash-ups discusses why a DJ wont open for him, the artists hed like to see in mash-ups, and what the future holds.

The Get Up Kids Regents Court – A young boy imagines what its like to kick it with Mikhail Gorbachev, and as a result, has an awesome day in his mind.

Jump into the Gospel Humvee Mansion -Music synced up with an old-school animated version of The Pied Piper. It actually looks like the animation is singing along with the track at points.
Carrot vs. Ninja – A man sets out into the desert to find his opponent. Whether he is the carrot or the ninja is beyond me.
