people in chile have good taste… and also the czech republic

i can’t even begin to tell you how to imagine the amount of surprise that fell out of my gaping jaw when i saw this video posted on my facebook page:

Trailer Cortometraje Mi Vida Secreta from Luis Alejandro Perez on Vimeo.

Trailer “Mi Vida Secreta”

It’s a trailer for a short film that was written and directed by Luis Alejandro Perez, a fine gentleman from Chile. Here is a description from the director:

The story tells about what happened on a saturday afternoon when a nine-year old boy, dressed up as an astronaut, stays at home alone doing a series of childish pranks that will be abruptly interrupted by his authoritarian father. Through the thoughts of the child, who has already become an adult, we will know how despite of his father, he always kept carefully the memories of his childhood

awesome! such a fantastic thing that is this video. and what’s that? an ieatpants song? oooh, neato! super fun thanks to this obviously brilliant and handsome prodigy director!!

after running into that gem, i realized that i hadn’t been keeping very close tabs on my stuff, so i did a quick youtube search and came up with this beauty:

the description is in Czech, but the title translates to “Removing the furnace glassworks Kyjov”

i would like you to perhaps take a moment to think about what has just happened here.

an instrumental song that i recorded in my apartment in the summer of 2008 has somehow found its way to be the soundtrack for the dismantling of furnaces in Kyjov, The Czech Republic.

fucking epic

btw, “pant full of dollars” has had 8831 listens on jamendo as of today. maybe you wanna listen to it to? i mean, it’s kind of good. how do i know it’s good? i took a vote. consisting of myself. and i unanimously voted that it’s a pretty good album. also, it’s free to download.
