The Vacation Jason music video for HALLOWEEN VACATION. Director: Jess Lane. Released on Valentine’s Day.
Here’s a video of me rapping over the legendarily ghoulish entrance music for Gangrel, the vampire WWF wrestler.
! CONQUER THYSELF !
In early 2015, I was given a one-off slot at Over the Eight to do anything I wanted. I challenged myself to write a totally new one-man show that wove together Vacation Jason, Temple of the Milk Spirit, and Break_The_System into one psychotic merry-go-round under the theme of a quote I read out of the book Think and Grow Rich: "Conquer Thyself or be Conquered by Self." That quote ruled my life for awhile.
I was very proud that I was able to conquer myself and do everything I needed to make this show happen. The video is of the first and only performance. It's very clearly a rough draft but there's some cool stuff going on. I had plans to expand and refine this show that never came to fruition. That upset me for a long time and I tricked myself into thinking of this victory as a failure. So now it's time to set it free, making room for more and better. There are elements here that have and will continue to influence something I make in the future, so I'm just gonna leave it here and if you wanna watch it, that's cool.
Thank you to Frank Flaherty for being a fantastic and patient tech. Thank you to Charlie Robo Purdom for recording this. Thank you to everyone who came out to see this crazy show on a very snowy evening! It's been almost two years but I haven't forgotten.
Hi. This is where my blog is now. This is where I will share my thoughts and creations. OK. Bye for now.
