It’s finally here!!! Super Dark Home Video: Season 2.0!!!
Under the heavy influence of classic TV shows like Idiot Box, Liquid Television & 120 Minutes, ​Super Dark Home Video Season 2.0 is an old school MTV style television show hosted by the Super Dark Collective.
We will be showing music videos from bands who have played or were slated to play a Super Dark event, as well as public submissions.
Season 2.0 is our latest project as we try to figure out what to do for musicians and artists in the midst of COVID-19. We will be releasing episodes on a bi-weekly basis!
GET INVOLVED! Send us your music videos! All submissions to SuperDarkCollective@gmail.com

Episode 1: DA’s

During the new series we’ll be attempting to premier some “lost” episodes – what was basically going to be the season linking season one to the music video style show we are going with season 2.0. AND also maybe some special live episodes – as in all live videos from shows in the archives!

Check out SUPER DARK HOME VIDEO . COM
for more info and the latest episodes/ scheduled premiers!

Hope you all are staying safe and productive!

So finally compiled and put together DIRTY MANEUVER – a Saratoga Springs, NY based skateboarding film by rated gnaR films, in association with Bad Culture Films, Rec City Skates, and Wild Abandoned. (See the Dirty Maneuver tab on my site here for the whole story!)

And put out a “selfie skate” video in which over a few summer’s filmed myself getting clips that we’re most likely just seen on instagram posts or not at all:

Hopefully this productivity will keep continuing!

Been over a year now, there’s just too much to blog about with all of the wonderful music  things happening. No time to update/ post about any of it! Maybe i’ll get to something soon, but the Super Dark events on Mondays and Thursdays at Desperate Annie’s in Saratoga have been going great, as well as the monthly First Friday shows at Pint Sized in Albany. Both of my solo albums are on streaming sites for the heck of it. My bands Mr Cancelled and Blood Blood Blood both put out debut cassettes last year via Super Dark Records, and are also streaming, and Mr Cancelled is currently recording the next EP to hopefully split with Comrade Nixon. Also I joined Steve Hammond and His Rabid Children and we’ve been playing a bunch of shows around including a recent trip to Montreal in Canada. Super Dark and Queen of the Scene were supposed to co-host a bunch of South By SouthWest (SXSW) showcases in Austin, TX but the festival got cancelled due to the current Corona Virus freakout (to which I may be under quarantine right now for very silly reasons related to pharmacy work). Not much video happenings anymore but hopefully i’ll update that eventually as well. Catch ya later???

Well this is by far the longest period I’ve ever gone without updating this site, but it has been a busy year!
The main website to check out is SUPER DARK COLLECTIVE.com
for all things shows/ flyers/ live videos/ & more!
I recently released a new/old experimental, nostalgic, live King of Nothing Nowhere album – Live Offerings from the Church of Errors on my recent birthday (free download).

And i’m psyched to say my collection of old, broken skateboards has finally found a home as a coffee table made by Delia, and a mural/ part of the wall at 51 3rd – a friend’s DIY space/ home that has been an important part of the culture in Troy, NY – previously (and now occasionally) hosting many awesome & experimental shows/ performances.

Currently getting ready to release a tape from the newly recorded Mr. Cancelled album ‘Every Town Has Its Dolls’ coming soon to the Super Dark Records bandcamp.
And other than that the Super Dark Live Video YouTube has hit well over 600 videos now!
There’s too much to keep track of… in the best way. Happy 2019!

SUPER DARK Collective is now hosting shows every Thursday at River Street Pub in Troy, NY starting 12/14/17.

A new throwback: this is my rediscovered and finished 2009 skate part. Basically a continuation/ left over/ following year of “Dirty Maneuver” (2008).
The footage was mostly filmed by Ryan Cambage and Casey Schultz throughout 2009 in various Upstate, NY locations – Saratoga, Glens Falls, Lake George, Warrensburg, & Wilton.
It was  all shot on MiniDV tape via an SD Sony Handicam and fisheye lens attachment. The footage was captured and sorted over the years until this month when I finally reviewed, arranged, and edited it.

Music by Devon Williams
“Bells” from Carefree, 2008 Ba Da Bing! and “New Guidance” from Beyond the Beyond, 2015 self released.

Full credits and thank you’s at the end of the video.

On September 29th,2016 I turned 30 and released my first collection of songs/ album under the name The King Of Nothing Nowhere. ‘Jewel-less Crown’ is a semi-nostalgic, lofi compilation of years of songs throughout my twenties that have come to exist either by experimenting in the moment or through moments, or laying down/ reworking some songs that had come to be instead of letting them be forgotten. Dabbling in acoustic, electronic loops, experimental folk punk, poetry, and written, half-written, and winged songs, I figured I would share this collection as something not to be forgotten, as making these songs as helped me over the years, and it’s important not to forget where you come from and the bad as well as good times for means of growth.

All original creations, either re-recorded or re-worked, or created anew in some way by Christopher Brown, ranging approximately from 2008 to 2016 while living in Wilton, South Glens Falls, & Saratoga NY, and Burlington, VT.
