Sebastian's Analog Prison alternate version Music Video

Top Secret Information!

I'm working on an alternate version of the Look What I Did music video Sebastian's Analog Prison. I'm using some footage that didn't make it into the official video and will include a blog post explaining the inspiration behind this director's cut version. Here are some screen shots to whet your appetite for Look What I Did's special blend of creative destruction:

Unwrite the Old Songs Artsy Video



I made this "found art" style video for the b-side song known as "Unwrite the Old Songs". It was a favorite track of mine and I thought I would make a video that was as weird and random as a Look What I Did album.

It's been approximately two years since I made this video but there are still a couple key moments that crack me up. My video crafting skills have improved but I'm eager to revisit the video and reveal the loose narrative I imagined while piecing together this work of art.

Easter Eggs:

The video includes some 80's references including the mullet, dancing to ghetto boxes, and monster truck racing. One may reminiscence on the good ole days or look back and jest at the silly trends that manifested. Unwrite the Old Songs reminds me of the old REM song Crush with Eyeliner particularly the lyrics:
 "We all invent ourselves...And you know me"

The video starts with a clip referencing Pygmalion, a famous Sculptor from Greek Mythology who fell in love with one of his statues.

3min 9sec a random picture of Wesley Willis .

At the 3min 14sec mark I included a clip from a trailer for a Zombie Movie filmed in Franklin, TN that never saw the light of day called "The South Will Rise Again".

3min 59 seconds I mistakenly refer to the title of Atlas Drugged as Atlas Shrugged.

song lyrics:
i want to write a lyric
that i won't regret in the morning
i'm tired of building ivory castles
to just find out they're made of chalk
and maybe not wall it in with the vulgar
because that's such a "me" thing to do
and i suppose i would try if you let me
to preserve your essence in posterity (forever)
are you worth it?

if you find the art to be invasive
be careful who you are inspiring

we can't help but feel like liars
when we present these loft galateas
though they may be milky-white on the surface
the maggots have consumed their hearts
and maybe thats the charm for the listener
that the image they get is seen through filters
and i suppose i have tried and i've failed to
deliver the picture with conviction (embellished)
you weren't worth it

pygmalion
was a fool
its all a waste of my time
i will unwrite
all my old songs
you have invalidated them
i feel cheap

Hidden Camera Footage reveals...



Look What I Did's most recent live show was at the Pour House in Nashville, TN. I recorded the performance and forgot I had a second camera going on a table placed near the action. The video captures decent audio, Barry's in between songs banter w/ the audience, and some sexy dancing by Skeet Childress and Tyrone Coughlin.

Word on the Streets

I need to add this to my weekly post rotation... Word on the Streets is an opportunity to address Look What I Did rumors, dispel myths, and enact positive propaganda for the weirdest band ever formed in Nashville, TN.

                                                            Barry Donegan (before surgery)

Vocalist and erratic frontman, Barry Donegan, exchanged some fisticuffs with Glenn Danzig and Henry Rollins last week. Barry was surprise attacked by the duo outside of the LWID recording studios. Barry dealt with the dastardly duo with a volley of uppercuts, bodyslams, and elbow drops. Mr. Rollins got in one lucky blow smashing a red camera into Barry's face which had to be surgically removed.

Look What I Did are already recording new songs while finishing up the forthcoming concept EP entitled Sebastian's Analog Prison. I'll try to get permission to attend the next recording session in order to bring you an exclusive preview of their next masterpiece.

Contrary to popular belief, Look What I Did members are highly concerned with this nation's at risk youth. Three schools and two community centers across the Midwest have been built by Look What I Did. It is a scientific fact that children's reading comprehension and math skills improve by 27%  after LWID plays in their town.

Look What I Did may perform at a random super top secret/only the hippest kids in town will know/totally underground house show in the near future...

Look What I Did believe in a holistic approach to healing the woes of this nation. In a scientific study conducted by Monsanto and B.F. Skinner, 14 children were taken off their ADHD medications and locked in a gym with members of Look What I Did and Last Chance to Reason for two weeks. The results were incredible:

The most Fashionable Band in the World

Fashionistas in Paris and Kentucky wait with baited breath for Look What I Did to perform live and make public appearances in order to imitate the most Fashionable Band in the World. The members of Look What I Did are internationally known for their trendy outfits, innovative accessories, and highly collectable band merchandise. Hugo Boss and other major fashion outfitters have consulted with Look What I Did for their 2013 Fashion Fall Line-Up.


The most Fashionable Band in the World post will be a reoccurring feature that will highlight a piece of Look What I Did merchandise. Today's item of envy is a super rare corvette red colored Look What I Did shirt with a party-goer undergoing vivisection. Lyrics from the song "The Soiree" are cleverly displayed adding a layer of mystique to this Fall's must have look.
 
"They hold you down 'til they break your will
Everybody is taking pills
There's all this pity we give out of sequence
Let's just have a party, it's far more convenient"

"How are we supposed to arrive
If everyones already there
How are we supposed to survive
If everyones already dead"

Ten Reasons we love Look What I Did


As a kid, I grew up listening to every sort of music possible... Bands like Skinny Puppy, Jesus Lizard, the Melvins, Sonic Youth, Nine Inch Nails, the Exploited, Snapcase, Nirvana, Shudder to Think, Hilt, etc. I stayed up late to watch a television show on MTV called 120 Minutes, which played indie/alternative rock videos. Some of my favorite segments included behind the scenes footage from interviews or concerts.

Check out this little gem from the Look What I Did boys Spreading the Swine Flu Tour:
  1. Barry Donegan does not engage in the ingestion of Alcoholic Beverages. Even when it is infused with snake venom (5min).
  2. Childress is an 18th level Bard. Throughout the video and real life, Skeet is usually singing, dancing, or crafting some sort of original piece of music.
  3. Tyrone Coughlin is a world champion Line Dancer. Before joining Look What I Did, he would often warm up the crowd for Garth Brooks by buck dancing for dollars (4min 15sec).
  4. Jake Omen has an endorsement deal with every Alcoholic Beverage Company in the United States.
  5. Christopher Bradley has a thing for techno/rave music (2min 15sec).
  6. This visit to the Mormon Temple and Space Jesus Museum in Utah inspired the new LWID song Brigham Young and David Koresh Rally the Troops on the Moon (2min 45sec). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pStTGUczKUs
  7. Skeet Childress has no sense of direction. He is easily befuddled by maps of all sorts. (1 min 42 sec).
  8. As part of Look What I Did's ministry to the poor, they often pick up gypsies and hitchhikers while on Tour. Note the mysterious Tall Girl and the infamous vagrant Jesse Baker cameos throughout the video.
  9. Jake Omen is a former Japanese Pop Star and is fluent in 13 languages. As evidenced by his mastery of foreign languages at the 3 min 29 sec mark.
  10. Look What I Did are so hardcore that they forgo traditional bedding and opt to sleep on stage when not performing (4 min 45 seconds).

Look What I Did is the Talk of the Nation



 "Coming out of the Nashville, Tennessee music scene, Look What I Did is, without a doubt, one of the most intense underground acts to surface over the past ten years. Taking inspiration from unpredictable artists such as Melvins and Jesus Lizard, the band cannot exactly be classified to a single genre. Look What I Did change their sound from album to album, or more accurately, song to song, always leaving the listener on edge."

Look What I Did: Sex, Lies, and Videotape

Look What I Did is no stranger to controversy, and there is no topic too taboo to explore in the form of song.

October 2005:
The criminally underrated album by Look What I Did Minuteman for the Moment "Chest is a Ribcage". The complexity of relationships and their potential for self-sabotage are explored along with the frustration of the unrealistic expectations placed on males and females as portrayed by sappy movies on the Oxygen channel...

"I ain't been laid in five long years, man
It's just I got these ideals
I can't get them out of my head"

And she's waiting for me somewhere
On a train or a bus or something mundane like that
I know that's the case, you see
I know it to be so, you can ask my mom"

"I'll just be a thousand Oxygen channel movies
To a thousand different people
A thousand different ways
And I don't care who it hurts"

Another favorite track of my mine is the song innocently named "Lightning Bugs". The clever word play penned by Barry Donegan mix pleasant summertime memories with the consequences of toxic relationships. This song explores the issue of the libido dominante, meaning the lust for power or the desire to dominate:

"If you think you love her so much why must you manipulate her
You're the heart of a puppy with the soul of a chew toy
Your urge to collect her is frustrating to deal with
Your fingerprints on her, it seems wrong to affect it
The lightning bugs don't want to play for you"

"In a jar
With no breathing holes
You egotistical son of a bitch
This is for your amusement"

"But I do it too
Sometimes
I do it too, yeah"

December 2006:
While playing a show with Foxy Shazam at the Gibson Showcase in Nashville, TN, Look What I Did surprises the crowd with a revved up and distorted version of the Abstinence Anthem "We Don't Have to Take our Clothes off" by Jermaine Stewart.

April 2008:
Look What I Did performs in Charlottesville, Virginia serenading the crowd with the always wholesome GG Allin tune "I Kill Everything I Fuck"
video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExomZKDaN88

February 2010:
Look What I Did goes on a male self-loathing satirical tirade during the song entitled Pussy Comitatus. Video Directors, Dune Baydoun & Chris Bradley, forge a controversial music video with a M. Night Shyamalan twist.

"i'm a potential rapist
test tube my baby goo
you're a sex predator
bottle me up!
you cheated yourself
and you
sold me out"

"i'd make a bad dad
 am a potential rapist
and im a domestic abuse machine baby
call up the cops"

For the record, these are simply my opinions and song interpretations.

The Look What I Did Saga continues...


Introductions can be a stumbling block for some people, but in the spirit of Look What I Did I shall jump into the mosh pit that is the Internet face first. My name is Joey Fuller and I'm a Look What I Did fan. That's me to the right, trying to keep the camera focused on Barry's acrobatic stage antics. It is my duty to add my voice to the melodic noise heard rumbling in the wilderness, preparing the way for the eventual explosion and musical jubilee that is Look What I Did.

At this point, you may be thinking, wow this guy is some weird art damaged version of John the Baptist. If so, I'll take it as a compliment. Now that introductions are over, I'll speak plainly for awhile. I've known Barry Donegan (vocals) and Aaron Skeet Childress (guitar) since I was 10 years old. We went to middle and high school together, played role playing games as awkward teenagers, and frequented Lucy's Record Shop on the weekends ingesting every punk/metal/noise band that performed. Although I didn't grow up with the rest of the band (Jake Omen on drums, Tyrone Coughlin wielding the bass guitar, and Christopher Bradley on the guitars) I can assure you that they're well mannered gentlemen with a knack for crafting high quality music.

Stay tuned to this blog for updates on forthcoming Look What I Did releases, behind the scenes videos, cheat codes, and super complex stuff that will make you 100 times more awesome than you already are!

Sincerely,

Joey Fuller
