BAMB Video Blog #3- “Love in the Time of Cholera” by Gabriel Garcia Marquez (is my Boyfriend)Posted: April 27, 2011
Video Liner Notes
-In Order to Get the Jokes in This Video- All you need to know is that Gabriel Garcia Marquez has magical shit happen in his novels on, like, every other page . Quesadillas turn into marching bands, forks become zombies, girls’ periods become butterflies, and it’s all supposed to metaphor-motif-symbolize how everything-is-ruined-forever things are in Colombia, Land of Drugs and People Speaking Spanish and Drugs and More Drugs.
– This was one of the last videos Alex and I did in our Inaugural Afternoon of Filming, so we lost a little bit of light, hence the “mood shadowing.” I think you’ll see why I decided NOT to be a nitpicky perfectionist and post the vid even though it doesn’t have A+ lighting (the reason why is because Alex is balls-to-the-wall hilarious in this and the OTHER REASON is because I not-so-secretly-because-I’m saying-it-on-this-blog hope that one day, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, while surfing the interwebs, in between his Facebook turning into a rollercoaster and his Twitter turning into a centaur, will stumble upon this video and he can smile a little smile before he turns into paper airplane and flies away.)
-I think we need to do “One Hundred Years of Solitude” as a future-follow up, so that Alex can say more hilarious things and I can prove that I know other Spanish besides “Ay yay yay”, “Bueno” and “Rolling my R’s.”
