Khruangbin Shares Absolutely Delightful Music Video For “Evan Finds The Third Room”

first_imgKhruangbin has been blowing up as of late, with the Texas trio gaining national recognition for their melodic, fun, and funk-driven tunes. Featuring Laura Lee on bass, Mark Speer on guitar, and Donald Johnson on drums, the trio is deeply psychedelic and draws from 1960’s thai funk. Today, the band has just released a brand new music video for “Evan Finds The Third Room”, a track off Khruangbin’s latest album Con Todo El Mundo.By itself, “Evan Finds The Third Room” is a stand-out track with smile-inducing “yes” vocal track and tight rhythm section that grounds down the song’s cascading and shimmering guitar. However, the new music video is equally as fabulous, with director Josh King explaining, “We found the happiest lady in China. We told her that you don’t need a real hula hoop to have fun. She agreed.”In the music video, which was premiered via The Independent, the camera follows a “lady in green,” Han Li, around a Chinese city as she cheerfully pantomimes hula-hooping. Pushing the boundaries of overly cheesy and absolutely delightful, the video for “Evan Finds The Third Room” is bizarre, but in the best way, easily slapping grins on the faces of viewers. The video’s subject is hilariously pleasant, and conceptually, the foreign setting in China and mysteriously invisible hula hoop is enthralling.As the members of Khruangbin explained to The Independent:I’ve known Josh King, who directed it with his best mate Felix, for a few years. He was instantly one of the best people I ever met in London. We’d always have pub lunches, drink white wine and drum up funny ideas for videos. After we recorded this song, I knew instantly that I wanted Josh to do the video. I let him have free reign with it, and I absolutely love it.You can check out Khruangbin’s music video for “Evan Finds The Third Room” below.

Daughter of Philanthropists Bob and Mary Montgomery Charged with Trafficking Cocaine

first_imgCourtnay Montgomery, the 55-year-old daughter of wealthy local philanthropists Mary Montgomery and the late Bob Montgomery, was charged this week with cocaine trafficking, as well as using, possessing or manufacturing drug equipment to transport drugs, court records state.An assistant state attorney said during a bond hearing Thursday morning that Montgomery had 110 grams of cocaine in her possession at the time of her arrest.Montgomery, who lives in Wellington, was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on Wednesday morning. Palm Beach County Judge Paul Damico has set her bond at $100,000.She was first arrested for drugs back in 1995, when Palm Beach police found her passed out in her car while holding 24 rocks of crack cocaine, court records show.Her father, trial lawyer Bob Montgomery, died in 2008. Since then, allegations from caretakers and court-appointed guardians have conflicted with Courtnay Montgomery’s claims of how her ailing mother was being treated following her father’s death.Caretakers allege that Courtnay was a danger to her mother, while Courtnay says they were the ones who were taking advantage of her mother.In 2016, Mary Montgomery failed to return from a trip to visit her daughter in Minnesota. When police tried to conduct a welfare check on Mary, Courtnay allegedly threatened them. Courtnay was subsequently charged with five counts of exploitation.The following month, a judge appointed a guardian to manage Mary Montgomery’s estate. Shortly thereafter, Courtnay sued the guardian for not acting in her mother’s best interest.Two years ago, police charged Courtnay with grand theft and conspiracy to commit grand theft. They say she took a Rolls-Royce and a Bentley, in addition to $1.34 million in silverware, and $8,000 in fine wine from her family’s home. Last year, the family’s 26,000-square-foot Mediterranean mansion at 1800 South Ocean Boulevard in Palm Beach was sold for over $37 million dollars.Mary and Courtnay Montgomery both receive a monthly stipend from the $206 million settlement that Bob Montgomery won when he sued the state for cheating him on fees they owed him for a tobacco litigation case.If a settlement is reached in the guardianship case, Courtnay Montgomery would receive $73,000 per month.Courtnay Montgomery’s attorney, Cindy E. D’Agostino, has declined to comment.last_img read more

Jose Mourinho on Cristiano Ronaldo : Make that man a case study!

Powered by Firework Jose Mourinho has been highly impressed with Cristiano Ronaldo’s performance over the years. For this reason, he thinks that Cristiano Ronaldo should be used as a case study. He is genetically and mentally very much different from other human beings.Advertisement Cristiano Ronaldo scored 4 goals against Lithuania in UEFA Euro 2020 qualifiers. After scoring four goals in that match, Cristiano Ronaldo broke another record. Now the star Portuguese footballer also owns the record of having most number of goals in European Championship qualifiers. Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 25 goals so far in European Championship qualifiers.Advertisement The star Portuguese footballer also holds the record of most number of goals for the country among the players who have not retired it. His goal tally for Portugal has now reached 93 after his four goals against Lithuania.Jose Mourinho seemed to be overwhelmed with the performance of Cristiano Ronaldo and he told,Advertisement “It doesn’t surprise me,”“At 34, he is top in the world, in a top team, in top condition. I’m not surprised whatsoever because genetically and mentally he is a case study.“He is someone that only thinks about winning, about beating records, achieving more and becoming better. He is truly a phenomenon and it really doesn’t surprise me.“When he is 50 years old he will be at home and FIFA will invite him to a game of legends. He will play the game and score a goal. I am sure it will be like that.”Cristiano Ronaldo is now showing the same enthusiasm to score like before and that is certainly commendable. The star Portuguese footballer is proving that age is just a number.Former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho blames the entire club organization for their failure Advertisementlast_img read more

How to Create an Original Travel Video that Will Captivate Viewers

first_imgStep 1 — Avoid Trendy TransitionsTransitions simply move the viewer from one scene to the next. But, used improperly, they begin to show the seams in the project. While some creators have made very successful careers out of using motion-driven transitions, this technique isn’t for everyone. I believe zoom, warp, and swoosh transitions have their places in specific timelines; however, excessive use will detract your audience from the intended experience.The key is motivation before movement. Emotion before motion (we will get to this later). If there is no motive behind the cinematic elements you’re adding to a scene, they won’t translate. Transitions are like salt. A little dash enhances the flavor, but too much spoils the broth.Step 2 — Avoid Influences from Other Travel VideosThe mistake I learned from a year ago is still relevant today. Instead going to other travel videos for inspiration, watch documentaries, dramas, music videos, Vimeo staff picks — basically, anything else. By diversifying what you watch, you’re changing up how your brain will come up with ideas. For example, when creating my latest across-Canada video, I drew inspiration from the double-exposure effect in the opening credits of True Detective.Step 3 — Music Is King!The right track can motivate the entire video. For me, finding a killer song to incorporate in my films before beginning the edit changes the entire creative process. Music is a good way to convey emotion, so I spend hours on end listening to either my friends’ music or selections from PremiumBeat.com. From there, I pick a track that eventually influences the rest of the project.Step 4 — Sound Effects Connect with Your AudienceHave you ever watched a video that was captured, composed, and edited beautifully, but it still lacked something? The issue was probably good audio. If you skip the sound design, you’re robbing the audience of auditory immersion. For example, if your video shows a waterfall, but your audience hears only music, they’re not getting the full experience. If I’ve captured shots rooted to a specific meaning, I like to apply the slightest bit of sound design to give them a kick.Step 5 — Emotion Before MotionWhen you’re starting your edit, try to remember what the experience felt like. Experience always trumps cinematic trends. I usually ask myself How did you feel when shooting this? And then I follow it with How do you want the audience to feel? Remember, the most significant, most profound films are usually those that nail the emotion corresponding to their scenes.(Tip: sometimes, when I capture scenes or moments, I’ll pull out a little pocket journal to jot down the essence of where I was. Later, I’ll reference the note to properly apply that feeling to my edit.)Looking for more video production tutorials?

You have a hard drive full of epic, experiential shots from the trip, and you’re ready to cut the footage together. For inspiration, you check out some trendy YouTube travel videos. There’s only one small problem — they all look the same. You get quickly overwhelmed by zoom transitions, six packs, and back-flips. Your motivation dwindles, and now all you can think about is that you don’t have a six pack.This is how I felt a little over a year ago. Other than what I saw on YouTube, I didn’t know anything about travel videos. So, like most others, I fell into the internet’s creative vortex, copying a trend rather than creating something authentic.In the following post, I’ll go over how I broke free from the cliches and share how you can get your own original results.last_img read more

Orissa: Around 300 children lead anti-Posco agitation

first_imgIt is ‘force versus children’ in the battle for land to set up Posco’s proposed mega steel project in Orissa’s Jagatsinghpur district where the anti-displacement stir has entered the decisive phase.While a determined state government have accused the Posco Pratirodh Sangram Samiti (PPSS), a body spearheading agitation against the South Korean steel major, of using the children as a “shield”, villagers sought to differ. “We involve children in the agitation to counter the state’s brute force which is trying to forcibly acquire land without consent of farmers,” PPSS President Abhay Sahu said.About 300 children are leading the anti-Posco stir for last 12 days as state government deployed more than 600 armed security personnel to enter into Dhinkia gram panchayat, considered as epicentre of the six-year-old movement.”I believe the children should never be used in agitation. The persons, be it their parents, should be held responsible for using them in this manner,” Orissa’s Women and Child Development (WCD) minister Anjali Behera told PTI. The minister said she would like to initiate action against persons involved in the practice. “It is cruel to make children agitate under scorching sun and heavy downpour,” the minister remarked.Jagatsinghpur Additional District Magistrate (ADM), S K Choudhury also demanded action against those who have ‘dragged’ children into the agitation. “We leave it to the civil society to consider whether anti-Posco brigade’s use of children is legal or otherwise,” Choudhury said. Not buying the logic of the powers-that-be, social activist Swami Agnivesh argued, “I don’t see anything wrong in children taking up the cause of their parents. Above all, they are not left alone to fight with the government.advertisement”The children are accompanied by their parents and seniors of the village,” Agnivesh told PTI. Striking a dissenting note noted child right activist Anuradha Mohanty said children must not be used in any form of agitation. “No one including their parents should be allowed to violate rights of children,” she said. The little ones, however, have their own argument.”Can the state government or Posco provide us a better future. It is our parents who will sustain us. If they are going to lose livelihood, who will give us protection,” said 11-year-old Rosalin Patra, a class-VII student of Gobindpur Upper Primary School.Like Rosalin, many students from Dhinkia High School and Patana Primary School have ‘voluntarily’ joined the ‘do-or-die battle’ against Posco project. Bapina Mandal, whose father was killed three years ago during an anti-Posco agitation says, “having already lost my father in the fight now it is left for me, my mother and elder sister to carry on the agitation on our own.”Admitting that children’s studies were affected due to their involvement in the agitation, PPSS leader Abhay Sahu claimed they have roped in teachers and provided black board and study materials to teach children at the dharna site.”Swami Agnivesh is a witness to facilities provided to children,” said the suspended sarpanch of Dhinkia and PPSS Secretary Sisir Mohapatra. Agnivesh recalled “during my visit to Dhinkia area, I taught children about the environment. They were dumping plastic water pouches here and there. I taught them to collect the plastic pouches and put all in a pit.”- With PTI inputsFor more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.last_img read more
