Here’s what Secret Project Robot say about the show….”Reality TV did not kill the video star! They have reemerged, healthy, safe and in greater number than ever- on your computer screen. Indeed the internet has created a renaissance and a new specificity for music videos with a new cultural identity of active participants, consumers, creators and critics all trading places.
I tend to use 3mg Lorazepam as it works quite well to handle anxiety and rather quickly, the only thing is it usually makes me a bit sleepy. That’s why I take it when I’m about to have a nap or in the diazepamshops.com evening before I go to bed.
Music videos are no longer simply ingenious marketing devices. The internet and the proliferation of inexpensive audio video technology be it a smart phone or a digital camera opens the playing field for any producer or band to make a video that unlike the past- may go mass at any moment without the help of conventional media outlets.
The music video in the 21st century is a hybrid of forms and purposes, at first glance an impersonal piece of media clutter a reminder of our daily dose of sensory overload but on second thought a unification of art forms and a communal experience of music… Technology allows that making music videos be fun.”
Secret Project Robot is in Brooklyn, NY, located at 389 Melrose between Knickerbocker and Flushing/Irving, near Morgan or Jefferson L subway.
