DJ Spooky Video

Alright we already have a video of the weekend but this one is pretty durn good I haven't heard much about DJ Spooky but I heard about this video on PORT, a really good site about art events in Portland. This video is amazingly...spooky. Here's what PORT said.

"After a hypnotic storm of drum and bass combined with a blink-of-the-eye-quick reel of changing international flags and symbols (interspersed with question marks) on three large screens, the film dipped into the opening cards from DW Griffith's 1915 film The Birth of a Nation. For those unfamiliar with this work, it was the first feature-length silent film, and pioneered the "rules of grammar" film continues to follow today. "The Birth of a Nation" was also used as a Ku Klux Klan recruitment film through the 1960's and takes a Confederate view of events surrounding the Civil War."
It's only a clip buuut you know that's how things go.
