Turkish Coffee – Arik Einstein clip by Dudu Geva

28 May

Dudu Geva was one of Israel’s foremost comics artists. His style was chaotic, radical and very psychedelic. Geva created this video to Arik Einstein’s song “Turkish Coffee” in 1974. It is the first Israeli music video, and has a strong 1970’s psychedelic style. The actor in the clip is Geva himself, incidentally.

Nicki Minaj – Stupid Hoe & Super Bass

26 May

Hip Hop artist Nicki Minaj has been noted for her psychedelic wardrobe and style . Like other pop artists which were featured here on the DPV such as Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Kesha and Rihanna,  Minaj uses psychedelic elements in her work and proves that the psychedelic style holds great appeal for today’s popular culture.  Even though the message of her videos is far from psychedelic, the visuals are blatantly pyschedelic, which makes me think once again about the way in which psychedelic aesthetics has migrated into exceedingly different segments of popular culture, and ask myself about the role which psychedelic aesthetics play in such an environment.

Anyway, enjoy the clips.

Pineal Gland Activator

This video claims to access and activate your pineal gland, and their site claims to do anything from pineal gland activation to worl peace. 

I don’t know, I just found the changing colors nice and the idea freaky enough to let you know 😉
