anne maree barry says hi

I started this blog in 2007. No one had heard of The Wire and I was making experimental films that a select few saw. My initial tagline for this blog was: 'I write concisely. always. I'm trying to improve this - however, sometimes few words work better'. Then I found Twitter. However, I still post here once a week, so feel free to comment or just to simply say hii.

Zombie Land
After a difficult week, I went to see Zombieland. If you follow this blog you may have guessed that I am kind of fond of the living dead. I loved Max Brooks book World War Z and am currently reading Pride and Predjudice and Zombies. (It funnily enough puts me to sleep at night) I could list Columbus' (the narrator and main character of the film) rules for surviving zombie land, however, I am going to return to the theme of this blog and look at the director of the film, Ruben Fleischer's music video back catalogue.

A select few:
1. Kid Sister's Pro Nails featuring Kayne West
2.Dizzee Rascal- Stand Up Tall
3.Dizzee Rascal - Fix Up Look Sharp
4.MIA - Galang
5.Wiley - Who ate all the pies

Fleischer's music videos may not be ground breaking, but all have a slick aesthetic and contain some nice shots. My favourite music video, of the few I selected is Stand Up Tall (2007). Here we can see Dizzee becoming 'a man', confident in his own performance and lyrics. Have a look at Fix Up Look Sharp (2003) for a visual comparison.
