Shiny New Video

Magic Monday cover art by Friends With You

Yo, been mad-crazy busy at work but just had to put this up.

Michna (aka Miami homeboy Egg Foo Young) released his latest (first?) video for track Triple Chrome Dipped... I missed his performance in Miami a few weeks ago due to my infected lungs.

This new track--heck his entire brand-spanken-new album, Magic Monday, is out on (my personal favorite label) Ghostly International. It's been spinning around on my iPhone for a few weeks now. Go ahead and grab it at your favorite musical retailer.

Michna - "Triple Chrome Dipped" from Ghostly International on Vimeo.

The video for "Triple Chrome Dipped" – a collaboration between Michna and Philly-based video artist System D-128: nostalgic footage of the artist's New York coming-of-age in the early '90s. It's unconventional, but it works on the strengths of Michna and System D-128's obvious artistic chemistry.

Filmed entirely on a Hi8 analog camcorder purchased in 1989, the footage shows flashes of Adrian Michna's youth from 1989 to 1995: the local pizza shop; the Metro North from Westchester through the Bronx and into Manhattan; skateboarding through Brooklyn; Michna's little brother staging toy-robot wars; band practice; doing donuts in high-school parking lots.

(Oh and I'm pissed b/c someone stole my chrome mechanical pencil from my desk at work this week. I'm on the hunt for you cubicle thief!)
