Steak Number Eight – Ashore


Need some Rembrandt-like photoshopping techniques? You might wanna contact the creator of this vid. It seems he’s tried a modern take on the Cast Away-movie. Maybe I would let go ashore. Though it is unlikely that one can awaken from a state of unconsciousness with a burning torch in one’s hand, we won’t talk details here. See, this is one of the many reasons why underground music blogs are called for. Awesome song, awesome vid, yet never to be heard of on the radio. Those channels that show music videos all day long? Nothin’. I mean, how fucked up is today’s music industry, really? Cause of course, things such as Nicky Minaj are much more qualified to be shown on public television. And why would you show a music vid that kinda hints at the whole refugee-thingy to the European public? My lips are torn. Torn of asking for help, that’s for sure. One would indeed be crazy to go about that. The whole I’ve-got-to-take-one-hell-of-a-dangerous-boat-trip-etcetera-just-to-save-my-life-in-order-to-arrive-in-a-country-of-spoiled-brats-who-try-to-ignore-I-exist-thingy isn’t exactly popular in Europe. But hey, this chord is worn out. Let’s ignore the fact that the boat is probably fueled by oil taken from this man’s country. Let’s not wonder whether things would’ve been different had he been a child. No, let’s not go that far. Leaving people out to die cause there’s no extra room on the boat? Yes, one would indeed be crazy to show that to the general public.
