Investigative Reports: Odd Obsessions Video Store

Back in 2003 or 2004, I helped put together a video for a local standup comedy show called the Lincoln Lodge. The video was about a local store that — if you lived here — you’d have to frequent — called Odd Obsessions Video. They offer the best videos, films and DVDs for rent. Super reasonable. They are super cool.

I thought they closed down, but they moved to a better location than the one in the video I made. I just learned that the web site Everything is Terrible! is in a filthy sexual relationship with Odd Obsessions, and I thought what a match made in heaven.

Anyway, I sent EIT this video because I thought they’d get a kick out of how bad it was. Maybe they’ll include it on the blog someday and it’ll get mad terrible hits!

Some things to notice: I had not yet received my wireless module for my microphone, so I ran a wireless lav cord up into the microphone. You can see the cord in several shots. Brady Novak is in the video, and he’s one of my favorites from back in the day. This was a video that I was trying my hand at animations. Six years ago, I was pretty fucking happy with how they turned out. Shoot, I’m still pretty fascinated that I had the vision even now. That’s all the DVD extras I can think of for now.

Bon appétit.
