Jimmy Joe Roche

Today, I got an email from Jimmy Joe Roche that read: “Every once in a while I feel like I can bend reality by focusing on a white dot of energy in the center of my chest or middle abdomen.” Looks like Mr. JJR got a new haircut, new magic powers, and a new video. Careful, kiddies, it has graphic language. (But hey, it’s art, right?) While his older works played with mysticism from a kitsch aesthetic (embroidered Peruvian ponchos paired with cheap vid effects, like stock image howling wolves), these new videos verge on dead-faced psycho internet 2012 stoner-conspiracy theory. I don’t know whether to laugh or run.

Other fun stuff….Mac software entitled “Slime Pulse,” which, in the artists words is a “standalone generative noise software for the Mac OS.” Check it out!

Digital Death Metal

Jimmy Joe Roche recently sent me an email with the subject line: A BAT SHIT VIDEO 4 U. Naturally, I opened it up and watched. The best I can describe JJR’s menacing just over a minute long video as, is some kind of hallucinatory digital death metal head-bang mind-bang freak out. It’s like he overloaded on pixel-pushing and is in the throes of some kind of ethernet-ether-ecstasy. Crazy. Check out some of his other vids too- wolves, Peruvian embroidery, gradients, more seizure-inducing psychedelia. Also, in this video is he wearing a fake beard?
