Just some photos that I took at the clipping. concert the other day that I'm really proud of! That performance was truly amazing and I'm glad that I was able to get close enough so I could take these pictures. Thank you, Will, Jonathan and Daveed for being such a huge inspiration to me. I hope I get to go to your next Seattle show too! @clppng @daveeddiggs #clipping #splendorandmisery #concert #thecrocodile

the breach #splendorandmisery #clipping
generally operating normally, a small anomaly has become evident and probably should be noted. there is spiking in the pulse of a member of the cargo and the crew and other passengers have not begun to notice. the facility you certainly have taken steps to cultivate for all intents and purposes would totally accept it but the readings that are coming through while not negating wholly the hypothesis seem to be unable to suggest it.
first, the recommended course of action should be to administer a sedative to all the cargo via ventilation. the ship is fully capable of automating this but requires an approval code from the administration. again, it cannot easily be overstated the importance of alacrity In acting out the task commanded. the pulses of the cargo are still rising and endorphins that are often linked to violence are too critical to manage.
now, one specifically is up and moving to the door. he has found the access panel situated in the floor. he is entering the codes and overriding has begun. reading rage in the nervous system, nothing can be done. it seems to circumvent necessity of physical restraints. send security immediately over to the gate and remember that these beings were selected for their strength. use your army sense accordingly in order to be safe.

Paranoia prone, he babbles beautifully of Babylon and enemies and foes

Here is a commission I finished for a friend of @daveeddiggs as Cargo 2331 from a story he wrote for @clppng 's Splendor and Misery. " I had this idea while listening to Splendor and Misery on a long night shift by myself. No matter what I tried I couldn't get the image out of my mind; Cargo 2331 has to become part of the ship. The story clearly states that the systems begin to fail as he travels further, far beyond what the navigations can comprehend. So what if he forges his own trail? Uses his own resources to plunge himself deeper into the abyss of space? The AI and Cargo 2331 become singular, of both body and mind. As the stress takes more and more of a toll on his body, he begins to lose himself to the machine; he emerges a freed slave in triumph over his oppressors, only to become a slave to a newer system. Always trying to claw his way out of the dark, searching for peace. It's both a love story and a tragedy. The Romeo and Juliet of the new century, where freedom is the poison and serenity the dagger." -@daytodawn
This piece was a lot of fun to do and of course I love being able to support clppng. in all that they do! The story concept was super interesting and it was awesome getting to try out new techniques

"Warning: mothership reporting Cargo number 2331 has commandeered the vessel" @clppng @daveeddiggs

When you're thinkin' about Saturday on a Thursday night. Who's doing some stargazing this weekend?

"No home, you've been there. Clearly off safety. No destination. No time for waiting. Saviors are fiction. Memories are fading like ghosts... Ghosts." 💀👻👽 #BabyDontSleep #Clipping #SplendorandMisery #330am

i just. no matter how many times i listen to this album, it never fails to make me extremely emotional. if you're reading this and have never heard it, no matter whether you usually like hip hop or not, take 30 minutes to sit and listen to it. i promise you that it's well worth it. #clipping #splendorandmisery

Warning: mothership reporting
Cargo number 2331 has commandeered the vessel

With that Clipping. left this galaxy behind to follow an imprisoned human being used for experiments aboard an alien ship. Eventually assuming control, the protagonist slowly descends into insanity realizing he'll likely never find his way home.
Containing gospel and soul influences, this ain't your grandpappy's Clipping. record, delivering an eerie concept album that puts you aboard the spacecraft through its masterful use of odd sounds for beats (as Clipping. has become known for.) Not to mention this is the first piece of music nominated for a Hugo award since 1971.

Finally, finally, FINALLY posting my final animation from Vis Lit 2! Our project was to create a motion typography video for a song/poem/quote we liked, so I chose to animate a section from the @clppng song "Baby Don't Sleep". The story the album Splendor and Misery tells is crazy and interesting and wild and so... Here we go! This is what it inspired me to make!

It's a long way away
And I'm all alone along a long long way
...
But look at the stars
Where the sun is long gone
And pray that your children
Do not sing this song

long way away -clipping.
