Killing in the Youtube Boxx

Killing Box (noun) - a military maneuver that entails surrounding an enemy on all four sides in order to massacre them; another term for abattoir or slaughter-house.

Independent (adjective) - not influenced or controlled by others in matters of opinion, conduct; not subject to another's authority or jurisdiction; not relying on another or others for aid or support.

Art (noun) - the quality, production, expression, or realm, according to aesthetic principles, of what is beautiful, appealing, or of more than ordinary significance; human effort to imitate, supplement, alter, or counteract the work of nature.

Grim (adjective) - not to be placated or appeased or moved by entreaty; ghastly, shockingly repellent; inspiring horror; black: harshly ironic or sinister; admitting of no appeasement or compromise.

Simply put, we're independent artists; artists whose sensibilities lean toward the grim. Why? Because we're paying attention.
We realize that the world around us is filled with beauty but even beauty is dark, and sinister and surrounded on all sides but the grim aspects of life; human and otherwise. We're the people who circle the edges, never invited in because we're scary, unpleasant and often speak the truth too starkly.

We also realize this type of art is upsetting, and is often lead to slaughter. Most do not wish to know what lurks amongst the shadows and would rather blithely go through life unaware, unenlightened and ignorant. And what do humans do to things they do not understand, or are unyielding to pretense? They kill it.

But we're fighting back. We're few who stand against the many. But with strategy, intelligence and stealth, even the few can conquer the many. And we invite you to join us.

These are the brilliant words of Killing Boxx. This is an incredible, well thought out, and beautifully written site that reviews some really cool stuff. I feel privileged beyond words to say that our good friend, Ken, has posted about a little known combined feature documentary from Twisted Twins Productions working as a team with FortyFPS Productions called PLEASE SUBSCRIBE.

The documentary follows the lives of four viral celebrities, who just also happen to be some of the most genuine, talented, and kind people on the planet -- David Choi, HappySlip, Daxflame, and Tay Zonday. Check out the post from Killing Boxx here, then go wander through the site. You're good to fall in love with the lovely layout and the intelligent content.
