I wrote about a mysterious VHS tape and a Total Slacker music video for VICE


I have this VHS tape labeled “Slap Happy” that was given to me by a friend who works as a porn actress. She doesn’t remember where it came from. The first hour of the tape is this weird old lady doing some kind of calisthenics routine for seniors around the edge of her bed. It involves a lot of clapping. There is no soundtrack and she does not talk at any point. I’m not sure whether it’s actually a workout video or performance art or what, but it is one of the most hypnotic and creepy things I’ve ever seen.

About a year ago I brought it over to Tucker’s house so we could watch it on the roof along with Nightmare on Elm Street 3 while drinking beer with our shirts off. At some point I got drunk and left without the tape, which gave Tucker the opportunity to steal its contents and make a music video for his band. The song is called “Life On Easy Street (uCouldDieInBedstuy)” and it’s about how life is pretty easy but the video kind of suggests that you could die in Bed-Stuy. I predict that if Tucker dies in Bed-Stuy it will be from falling off of his roof while making videos.

Less Artists More Condos at St. James Church

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

Live visuals for a show curated by Less Artists More Condos at St. James Church in Manhattan featuring Real Estate, The Beets, Beach Fossils, The Tony Castles and Total Slacker on January 18th, 2010.


This show quickly became notorious after hysterical allegations of wild hipsters desecrating arose following the show. I wrote an article for Vice that helped clarify exactly what happened that night (or maybe not). Read THE BEETS ARE GOING TO HELL over at Vice.

In any event: this church was a spectacular environment to perform live visuals in.
