How about something zany and deranged for the Halloween holiday? I don’t think Sally Cruikshank has her own DSM category yet, but I think she might rate one. Here’s her “Face Like a Frog” featuring music by Danny Elfman and Oingo Boingo, including one of my faves, the segment “Don’t Go In the Basement”.
And for something goofy but a little bit creepy, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ doing his screamin’ thing with “I Put a Spell On You”. Brrrr!
We at San Diego Free Press love watching all kinds of video. Those short visual stories entertain, inform, and agitate in a way completely different from the written word.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
