Military

We definitely all have known someone like this 😂:

It always seemed to happen after summer break too. Someone would try and flex how they learned how to start a fire in the summer, shot some guns, built some forts (guys typically in some jr military thing or boy scouts)… and I was always thinking “Oh yea? Welcome to the club, I’ve been saying how cool that all was for years but all you guys wanted to do was play video games and watch TV while I did all that on my own.”. From what I remember they lost interest again pretty quick, but it was good while it lasted.

It’s lit:

LOL I lost it at the first 🗣🎤”There’s a place called Kosovo…” 🎶.  Certified autumn banger.. I’d add this to my Spotify if it was available.

It’s a parody of Beach Boys – Kokomo, for any of my teen readers.  Do teens even know what blogs are?  Judging by all the “Dude, how do I buy one of your Auto glock selector switches?” emails I get, they seemingly don’t understand blogs / don’t have time for reading a couple paragraphs.  I’m not even going to click on the link in that post again, because last time I did I saw Blackhawk helicopters and white vans for days.

This looks like it will be interesting:

From the description:

Just out of high school, at the age of 18, Miles Lagoze enlisted in the Marine Corps. He was deployed to Afghanistan where he served as Combat Camera — his unit’s official videographer, tasked with shooting and editing footage for the Corps’ recruiting purposes and historical initiatives. But upon discharging, Lagoze took all the footage he and his fellow cameramen shot, and he assembled quite simply the very documentary the Corps does not want you to see. COMBAT OBSCURA is a groundbreaking look at daily life in a war zone as told by the Marines themselves. More than a mere compilation of violence, the edit ingeniously repurposes the original footage to reveal the intensity and paradoxes of an ambiguous war from an unvarnished perspective.

You can check out the website for more info.  Coming to theaters, streaming, and bluray on March 15th.

I really liked Generation Kill (which was based on a true story), and this looks similar so I’m sure it will be good.

Wirty Dhore is “unique”, I’ll say that.  What a dumpster fire:

Man I love how that guy just does shit to do it.  He doesn’t want fame, your approval, or give a shit about subscribers or anything else.  He has a camera, a YouTube account, and an imagination, a sense of humor, and that’s that.  That paint job is so mesmerizing.  I respect the fact he showed the wheelbarrow love too.

He’s definitely one of my favorite contemporary artists.  If I had connections in the art world, I guarantee I’d have rich bastards and their wives standing around at the MOMA viewing a supercut of Wirty Dhore videos projected onto white trash bags pondering what the meaning behind it was, and contemplating the juxtaposition between creating art and having the power to destroy with a gun.  Shit, I got goosebumps when I wrote that, it was good.  I get so gassed up sometimes you’ll have to forgive me fellas.

Mehhhhhhhhh:

Well I guess we can’t say the idea is “unoriginal”, so at least it has that going for it. *shrug*

Thoughts?  You putting this on the must-see list?

From the guys at Corridor Digital:

Looks entertaining, plus the realism looks great.  I’ll watch it if I can without downloading that stupid “go90” app they are trying to push… I’m not interested in that I can assure you.  I get it, there is potentially lots of extra money if you don’t use YouTube, but it’s seriously a major pain in the ass for everyone so if you ask me that’s quite the cost (inconveniencing and irritating your audience).
