Haha, I didn’t know this video existed. I want to recreate this gem of a music video one day.




Not gonna lie, I got a little emoshe. 




Oooooh! Yay! And I don’t even have to wait that long!

Here it is, kids! The (Brian’s) World Premiere of the short documentary my friends and I made back in December 2013, “Where I Belong”:

This documentary follows the female singer of a local pop-punk band and her travails in a predominantly male-lead music scene.

Huge thanks to Josh Stone, Saumitra Mungekar, Maria Morano, Jake Newberry, Andrew Hoekstra, Farraday, and Courage My Love, for making this film happen. One day, I hope to make a longer, more in depth version of this film, but I think this is a pretty good start.

Feel free to share it if you like it and let us know what you guys think! Enjoy!

Reblogging myself because I am the worst and forgot to thank my audio crew, Karen Montaldi and Frank Lato in the first post. Ahh! We’d have absolutely nothing without them!

Donald Glover only makes cool music videos.

These segments keep getting better and better! Definitely my new favorite!



I’ve decided to release a short film I’ve been sitting on for the last few months. I was hoping it would be accepted into and play at the Chicago International Movies and Music Festival, but unfortunately, it failed to do so. And while I’ve submitted it to a few other festivals that won’t take place until way later this year, I’ve grown a bit impatient, so I’m going to release it online today. Look for it some time this afternoon, you know, if you’re interested in that sort of thing.

My Heart Is The Worst Kind Of Weapon - Fall Out Boy
This is me wishing you
Into the worst situations
I’m the kind of kid
That can’t let anything go
But you wouldn’t know a good thing
If it came up and slit your throat
