My new Peacemaker video was mentioned on Headbangers Blog

Wow, I'm stoked that my latest video of weirdness was mentioned on the Headbanger's Ball Blog. I must confess I never expected much from the Peacemaker vids in terms of attention-getting because they are so strange and that can be a challenge for some viewers.
Thanks Rich, you're the man.

jib test

This is a crazy exciting new tool I just got at work. I'm not good at using it yet (this was my first test) but with a little practice it could be really cool.

Peacemaker - A Short but Interesting Message from God

The latest in my collaboration with Rich Hoak's Peacemaker project.

Porch Rhythms

Sickeningly wholesome, this video almost gives me a patriotic, warm-inside feelings or something. There is a narrative if you’re willing to go there with me. If you’re not, it’s a nice video about an old lady and baby birds.

Peacemaker and TFD

The grindmaster, Rich Hoak, is back from tour with Brutal Truth and has posted the videos that I did for him on the respective band mypsace pages.
You can now find my video for "Armed Response" on the total fucking destruction myspace page.

Likewise you'll find the video for "Holy Blood of Angels" on the Peacemaker myspace page.
The "Late Bloomer" video has been removed. Some people had a change of heart and others asserted their influence. Win some, lose some.

"Late Bloomer" makes blogosphere news

This from a blog called Metalsucks

Tuesday, February 19th, 2008 at 11:08am by Axl Rosenberg

"The video for “Late Bloomer,” from the album Hungry for Nothing (which comes out on Translation Loss today!), was clearly made on the cheap by the entity known as Punkmonkey Pictures - but I think it’s kind of creepy precisely because of its cheapness. Like the way Texas Chainsaw Massacre (the original, not that shitty Michael Bay remake with Jessica Biel) seems kind of like a snuff film - this seems like some actual fucked-up video some occult dude made. Intercut with performance footage of an awesome crusty punk tune.

In any case, I love this song, and am really looking forward to hearing this album in its entirety. Hope y’all get a kick out of it, too."

Peacemaker video now online

Peacemaker - 'Holy Blood of Angels'

Peacemaker is a transformational harsh noise project founded by Richard Hoak, drummer of the legendary New York City grindcore primitives, Brutal Truth, and more recently for the Philadelphia based grind outfit, total fucking destruction.

This video, Holy Blood of Angels, is an interpretative film that attempts to see through the eyes of Peacemaker and arrives at forbidding but hopeful place.

Changes are in the making

So...the old website is gone. From now on, punkmonkeypictures dot com consists of this blog and my YouTube page. I like it this way as I completely suck at html and everything else interweb related.

I am doing some really cool stuff right now, currently editing a music video for a great band called Fight Amp. The video is for the first single “Late Bloomer” which is available soon, if not already on Translation Loss Records.
I’ve been working on it for some weeks now and all the footage is finally in the can. I starting editing last week and I can already tell that it is going to be pretty good. For those loyal few who have followed my illustrious video career thus far, I promise this one is the one watch for. Bold words I know, but you'll see.
In the next few days I’ll post some stills here on my blog to give all interested parties a little glimpse.
This video is far and away the weirdest, heaviest, most dead right-on thing I’ve done yet. I’m stoked.

Video Update

I so need to do away with my current website and switch this thing around completely. I really use Youtube all the time, perhaps changes will be made this year.

2008, the year changes are getting made! I like the sound of that.

I’m working on something monumentally cool right now.

Until then here’s a couple things I posted recently.
