This as an example of a hue-man doing something real, channeling the gods via donce. People are itchin’ to get out their minds, to build up that gak-like muscle ’round them sits bones and just shake a dern leg!

This is for all ya’ll existing on the oases of the Internet who, like myself, are two minutes too late on the hype.

Watch the whole thing… people join… it makes you feel good.

“barn”: a short film about Akudama

June 22, 2009

In August of 2007, Akudama took a break from NYC life to record an album in a secluded barn in Lunenburg, MA. Originally intended to document the process, this film wound up being about, quite literally, nothing. For one reason or another, there’s no record of the writing or recording process. It’s not particularly well shot (by Blake), or well edited (by Calvin). If anything, its… entertaining. But that’s a stretch. Enjoy.
