Categories: LOLZ, Videodrone

The Found Footage Festival teaches us about so many topics.

Think the videocassette is dead? Think again.

On Wednesday, November 6, the Found Footage Festival makes its way to the Mad Art Gallery (2727 S. 12th Street). Hosts Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher have scavenged the country's thrift shops and garage sales for the best -- and worst -- of VHS culture, and they excitedly share their finds with the masses year after year. Bizarre celebrity exercise fads, training montages, dating videos and "stranger danger" prevention tips all are screened "Mystery Science Theatre 3000" style, giving audiences a hilarious multi-sensory blast from the past.

Arsenio Hall Performing "Country Grammar" in an Ozzie Smith Uniform: But Where's the Backflip?

Categories: Nelly, Videodrone

Arsenio Hall performing "Country Grammar" in an Ozzie Smith uniform, NOT doing backflips.

Last night, Nelly returned to the Arsenio Hall Show to collect on the bet he and Hall made on Tuesday of last week. The wager was over whether the Dodgers or the Cardinals would triumph in the recent series for the pennant: If the former, Nelly would perform his breakout hit "Country Grammar" wearing a Dodgers uniform; if the latter, Hall would perform the song, dressed in Ozzie Smith's duds.

Arsenio Hall proved himself a man of his word...well, mostly.

St. Louis Rapper Prince Ea Punks the Internet With Awesome Video Series

Categories: LOLZ, Videodrone

A screenshot from one of the videos that fooled the whole conspiracy-theorist corner of the Internet.
St. Louis Rapper Prince Ea is no stranger to viral-video marketing. His "Backwards Rapper" video from 2011 has nearly 1 million views on YouTube, setting the Internet on fire when it was released. Last year's "Smoking Weed with the President" took off in a similar way when it came out, and it presently sits just shy of the 400,000 mark.

But his latest, highly ambitious endeavor just may be the best yet.

Music Video: St. Louis Native Bhi Bhiman Covers Dire Straits' "Walk of Life"

Categories: Videodrone

Press Photo
John Burroughs grad (class of 2000) Bhi Bhiman left St. Louis after high school and now lives in the San Francisco Bay Area. But once a Redbirds fan, always a Redbirds fan -- Bhiman once wrote a song in celebration of former Cardinals star Albert Pujols -- and when RFT Music asked Bhiman to tell us the three things he misses most about St. Louis, the top of the list was a no-brainer.

"Cardinals games."


"The prevalence of cheap, decent barbecue. I grew up playing a lot of baseball, and people would just bring burgers and a barbecue to tournaments and sell 'em for, like, a dollar."

And finally?

"Nice summers. I like the hot summers."

Bhiman spoke with RFT about his forthcoming (May 14) release of a covers EP, the subject of a feature story in this week's paper.

Fresco Kane
East St. Louis' Fresco Kane continues his recent rise to hip-hop prominence with the release of a brand new music video for his latest, appropriately named "Fresco Kane." The song itself serves as an introductory banger and may be one of Fresco's strongest singles yet, while the video plays in black and white and features Kane and his crew partying in a variety of fairly run-down looking industrial areas. Videos, music and more for the So So Def rapper can be found on his official website.
