HitRECord TV

The creative genius, Mr. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is at it again. Episode 1 of his HitRECord TV came out a couple of weeks ago and it has taken me this long to actually watch it but do not let that discourage you from giving it a look right now. It's a sort of variety show made up of the various collaborations from his website, and it is definitely done with style. Way back when, I posted about this website in hopes that I could spread the love of what these guys are trying to show everyone (And to prove in hipster fashion that I liked it before it was cool). In a world where people have the mentality of "this is mine, so don't steal it" I find it refreshing to see that this site serves a more collaborative goal. hitRECord strives to take something an artist has done and twist it in a way that makes it unique and new. Many of the creations on the site have hundreds of different collaborators and through this I feel we can make fascinating connections with the people around us.

In this particular episode, the theme was the number 1. For first times, first collaborations, and so fittingly, first episodes. I have to say my favorite video these guys created was the song, "You're not the Only One," which of course they save for last. Here's hoping that HitRECord TV has a long and vibrant run as a series.
