new PFA video! *** "Psalm for St. Paul"  Reply with quote  




Jared Paul, lead vocalist of Prayers For Atheists, was among the over 800 people who were arrested during the 2008 Republican National Convention in St. Paul, MN. More than 5,000 police officers, National Guardsmen, and agents from over 50 government agencies converged on the city to conduct mass arbitrary arrests, disrupt media coverage, and stifle dissent. With the help of Strange Famous Records, the Coldsnap Legal Collective, Minnesota ACLU, the Community RNC Arrestee Support Structure (CRASS), and donations from supporters around the country, Jared fought his case and all charges were eventually dropped.

Jed I. Rosenberg directed this video. The additional protest footage was graciously provided by the Glass Bead Collective and Twin Cities Indy Media Center. The music was written and performed by Alan Hague (of PFA.)

"Psalm for St. Paul" is featured on Prayers for Atheists's self-titled EP, currently on sale for $7 at http://www.StrangeFamous.com Also available on iTunes.

Why's that?

Thanks a million to Jed Rosenberg for his great work on this video!

Challenge to the SFR forum: See if you can spot a surprise cameo appearance by another member of the SFR roster.

It looks like there was a subliminal B. Dolan flashing, but I'm not sure.

great track and a great video.

my only criticism is that the text at the end moves too fast (or maybe i'm just a slow reader). i had to pause the video to take it all in.

I agree to that. I think there should have been a little more time to.read the text, but I think the video was real good.

I don't know who it is (sage or b dolan), but 1:27 doesn't really look like jared paul to my eyes.

I think animals who work under the poilce departments are still referred to as officers.

We all learned a valuable lesson from Half-Baked.

thanks y'all! this is jed, the director.

the text at the end was a subject of conversation - but ultimately we decided that the video should be as concise as possible and people would have the opportunity to pause the text or read more about the case if they chose to do so.

thanks for checking!
