WATCH THIS: Where The Kids Are

on Friday, Feb. 8th

Long time readers may recall the video for Zeds Dead’s The Living Dead, whose director Andrew Renzi we interviewed. Well Andrew just let us know that his latest music video went live today, and it’s another great piece of work. There’s a pinch of 80’s nostalgia in this video as well, hints of the VHS era in the layered imagery. Given how much I dug The Living Dead and how much I love Panos Cosmatos’ Beyond The Black Rainbow it’s no surprise that Blondefire’s Where The Kids Are is right up my alley.

There’s a rapturous term thrown around by VR enthusiasts: “The Metaverse.” It is a term that comes from the seminal Neal Stephenson science fiction novel Snow Crash, where it described a kind of embodied virtual reality.
