Demons Music Video by Joji Directed by Jared Hogan

Mimi Berlin’s current obsession is the newest music video for the song Demons by Joji, made in one take, directed by Jared Hogan (Video Producer: Elisha Gustafson)

Who Is Joji?

Joji is an interesting artist we had never heard of before (’cause we are Old) As a musician he either records under the name Pink Guy, or as Joji, they are very different from eachother. Also: he is George Miller and Filthy Frank. Yes! If you visit TVFilthyFrank on YouTube you’ll find out even more characters: we did and decided Joji is our favorite, but the others are more funny in an absurdist way. This multi-talented performer has been at it since 2008 and has a 7.8+ million subscribers, according to wikipedia.

The furry outfits reminds us of Nick Cave‘s work (the artist, not the singer)

Roller Derby for Girls

Roller Derby for Girls

Roller Derby is a contact sport played by two teams of five members roller skating in the same direction around a track, they have all kinds of matches whilst doing so. Basically one of the teams needs to be the fastest; the players are very rough with each other in order to accomplish a win. Roller skating marathons became populair in the 1930s, just like the dance marathons. Roller Derby is a sport with a high entertaiment value; the same kind the american wrestling matches have.

The black and white image is made at a Roller Derby match in 1948, taken from Time/Life Magazine. (read the article and see more images here at time.com)

Listen to Bobbie Gentry Singing her Ode to Billie Joe

Listen to Bobbie Gentry Singing her Ode to Billie Joe

Bobbie Gentry wrote and recorded the wonderful song, Ode to Billie Joe, in 1967. We, at Mimi Berlin, can’t get enough of this 1960s not-your-average-country-&-western song. It’s about how daily life goes (on) in a little community in the south part of the USA. The way Bobbie Gentry performs is breathtaking.
Hope you like it too! xoxo

It was the third of June, another sleepy, dusty Delta day I was out choppin’ cotton and my brother was balin’ hay. And at dinner time we stopped and walked back to the house to eat. And Mama hollered out the back door “y’all remember to wipe your feet”. Continue reading
