emo

An emo look at guns and their function:

The concept and process of shooting a gun is amazingly simple, point and shoot. That may be the only simple thing about it. Our goal here was to take the simple concept of shooting an aluminum can in the woods – almost any gun owner’s childhood experience with their BB gun – and go deeper into what shooting a gun can be. Josh, the talent, narrates about the complexities that guns bring, whether societal, mechanical, or even personal. There is a linear storyline of Josh and the bullet. He takes a moment to think about this piece of lead that he is about to send downrange, and we go back to the beginning. From the melting and casting of lead, to the absolute detail that is involved in creating ammunition. The process in itself is complex and gives visual understanding that it guns are simple on surface, but only that.

So emo.

shooting-targetGuns aren’t “too simple” though I guess because the gun fails to ever fire.  This is likely due to to the fact that around 1:40 he’s loading cartridges which don’t have primers into the magazine… *CLICK – NO BANG*.  OOPS! ;)

Despite the obvious oversights, I enjoyed watching though.  Thoughts?

DO IT EMO… DO IIIIIIIIIIT:

NOTE: The video was removed from youtube, so either the ATF booted down the Emo’s door, shot his dog and took his computer… or else maybe he just got wind of the AOW he made (as pointed out by Miguel in the comments) and deleted it to avoid trouble.

You’ll lose a finger.. but the plus is you’ll get so much attention.

Seriously though, Ideas like this make me cringe.

I like the track they used in the video.. pretty raw. Does that make me part emo? Shit I hope not.
