...the queen is dead music video call...


this post is really for the sisters, but if some brothers want to jump into the video too, i ain't mad...

Hi.

As you may or may not know, I released a song called The Queen Is Dead on my recent EP, ...paper cuts... The song orbits around the use of the word, "Queen," as a reference to women. It challenges the use of the word by men who do not treat women as the term should dictate they do. Though this topic is one that can always be further explored by both men and women, I only had 4 minutes to explain myself in song, but I do hope that the dialogue happens and continues to happen among our folks. Now, on to the matter at hand -- the music video.

The music video for The Queen Is Dead is going into production now and we need you to help us complete it! The video will be a compilation of women telling us what it means to them to be truly loved and respected by men. This will hopefully challenge men to put down their male privilege for a second and try to understand the effects their actions can have on women.

So, with that said, we would love to have you in our video. All we ask is that you get in front of a video camera (digital point-and-shoot with video, your computer's video camera, a camcorder, etc.) and give a brief statement (1-minute long) about a) a personal experience that affected you in a way that is pertinent to the song topic b) a word of advice to other women c) a reason why you would rather be considered a soldier than a queen d) anything as simple as you saying, "i am a mother, daughter, sister and teacher," (just an example, you can put whatever you want in there). I think you get the idea. Our deadline is April 1, 2010. Please send your video to TheQueenIsDead@bambu.la -- if the video is too big, we suggest you use Megaupload.com or YouSendIt.com to get the clip to us.

With LOVE: BAMBU

There are no up-to-date statistics on the percentage of unemployed men who are fathers. However, in 2008 there were 743,000 married couple families with children under age 18 in which the father was unemployed.
