Off Topic. Unless You Like Video, Film, Music and Pop Culture…

Happy 4th of July weekend to USA readers. And to everyone, here’s an “off topic” post, unless of course you like photo, film, music, or pop culture, and then this is right on topic.

Following a wave of requests, this is a re-broadcast of a recent popular chasejarvisLIVE where I played host to two amazing and culturally relevant figures: emcee RA Scion and writer, filmmaker, and critic Charles Mudede. This video is a round table discussion that includes film, photo, and video-specific information, but since all the world (and our creative inspiration) transcends, or at least is informed by- pop culture, this piece and other forthcoming pieces like it has a far wider goal of sharing the sphere of things that inspire me, things I think you might find interesting or inspirational as well.

The round table discussion is followed by a live performance from RA Scion (Common Market, Victor Shade) doing some recent stuff off VICTOR SHADE at about the 1:48 mark.

    Chase, thank-you for bringing these people together – I just discovered Victor Shade (actually from one of your other videos) and he blew me away! Really inspiring stuff, and a real fresh sound – as a musician first, I instantly connected with the production, the message and the ‘character’ of what RA’s doing.
    As someone newly trying to find their way in the visual world, it’s nice to hear Charles Mudede’s take on the things – and as always, you’re own opinions/knowledge/enthusiasm are always welcome.

    Thanks again, and best wishes,

    I actually had the opportunity to stream this live the other day, and have to say that it was awesome. I was very impressed with the quality of the stream. I have been following Ra’s career for a while now so there really wasn’t a whole lot that surprised me there. Charles, however, is very interesting and insightful. Thank you for bringing these two together.

    interesting discussion. i’m glad, from a visual perspective, that you shot the show in b&w, and varied the camera angles.

  4. Pablo Zanardi July 4, 2010 at 6:27 pm #

    I think he shoots B&W so he won’t have to worry about matching colours from different cameras, read that somewhere.

    Anyhow, thanks so much Mr. Chase for sharing all these wonderful videos with us, I’ve learnt so much awesome stuff since finding your blog.

    I liked it …except the slightly embarrassing bit where you mention me being the white girl standing out in my village. I didnt expect that to get read out…ouch. I was absorbed in the idea of difference at the time. Now Im absorbed in the idea of (myself)…sorry I mean Tribes, it all fits….like the tribalism of hiphop and the tribalism of where I live. Its interesting.

    I also didnt hold it against him for saying he hated MIA. Hes a critic. They’re critical.
    I listen to Aussie hiphop . We have some groups I like. But the territory speak, its yawn producing and frankly sometimes just a pissing contest. I wish music wasnt like that.

    So anyway I ramble.

    For giggles about music go here…note the fixed gear at the end!

    i’m speechless, and i totally agree with toby.

    I discovered your blog this last week while recovering from a back surgery (lots & lots of time in my hands). And this round table blew my head off! WOW, really loved it. Thanks for bringing these people together and allowing us to be part of it.

    I appreciate the eye-opening interviews that touch (even indirectly) on photography…one thing that I didn’t agree with was Christian religion teaching if you commit suicide one goes to Hell. I am a Christian but have never heard this and I’m from the South also…that concept is nowhere in the scriptures….

    Keep up the great inspirational videos

  13. philltran July 16, 2010 at 4:43 pm #

    Thanks for all your work in bringing conversations like this together. Keep impacting the community and sharing.

    I agree with @Alan that the Bible does not teach that committing suicide is a ticket to hell.

    RA Scion sorry for your lose. Awesome that you are able to use the experiences to produce your art and make a difference as a super hero.

    Victor Shade Really Rocks! He is bringing something new really sounds good …

    My respect for this blog just fell a few tiers.

    The only time the words “amazing” and “Mudede” should be used in the same sentence is when used to describe how awful, pretentious and sophomoric Mudede’s writing is. Example–“Mudede’s writing is amazingly awful, pretentious and sophomoric”.

    Hopefully the next episode has two truly amazing and culturally relevant figures.

    Very impressive. I just found out through another site and now I’m hooked.

    Looking forward to seeing more videos and since seeing this, I finally bought a new set of tunes, Victor Shade. Can’t really remember when the last time I ever bought a cd or something off of iTunes.

    Dental hygiene is vasty critical to total health. Most folks do not believe of their oral hygiene as a portion of their health, but several well being associated problems stem from infections inside the mouth. See your dentist twice a year and stop any unecessary health problems that could have been avoided in case you did your 2 yearly check ups.

    I believe what you published was actually very logical. But, think on this, what if you were to create a awesome title? I am not suggesting your information isn’t good, however suppose you added a title that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean this blog name is kinda plain. You might glance at Yahoo’s home page and note how they write article headlines to grab people to click. You might add a related video or a picture or two to grab readers interested about everything’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it might make your website a little bit more interesting.
