TikiKiti was created to be a place for video and film producers to show off what they can do. We continue to be amazed at the talent we find — and we hope, so will you.
Here you will find some of the best of the best fan-made/unofficial music videos on YouTube™. You will find the Barclay Award winner. We also interview our award winners — both on this printed page and on our YouTube™ channel.
The outside world? Vastly overrated. Everything we need can be found right here. *points to head* I find it odd, or perhaps oddly comforting, that while network news is relatively silent about the ways in which our global neighbors are dealing with this pesky plague, we have in our possession an unspoiled network of opportunity to share our dreams, observations, and anxieties.
Gosh, what a year. From a Stygian coal mine of fear and despair, we tentatively surface to a patch of daylight. *knock wood* We're still quarantined (Is there a band called The Quaranteens? If not, there should be) and from all accounts we're heading into a brutal winter that's going to make the first wave look like a badminton match.
Theoretically, it's Christmas. Now that's a great song title. Icebergs are melting, the waters are rising, and there's a nasty bug going around the office. So let's bundle up with a hot drink and watch this month's pageant of Unofficial Music Videos, lovingly created by creative types just like you.
Signs, signs, everywhere signs Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind Do this, don't do that, can't you read the signs? Ever think we'd look at two months ago as "the good old days?"
Hey! How's it going? Pretty good? Can't complain? So let's embrace our social distancing. It's a weird world out there, friends. We're all at least six feet apart to slow the spread of Covid-19, our pitiless unseen enemy. Yet the irony of coming together by staying away from each other is not lost on anyone.
Allow us to introduce another Barclay Award winner, London filmmaker Tanya Kostadinova, who took top honors last December with her Unofficial Video for Boney M's "Daddy Cool."
We've had the Oscars, the Golden Globes, and the NBA Slam Dunk competition, but awards season is far from over. The TikiKiti brain trust has decreed that we will presently name the best Unofficial Music Video of 2019, from among our monthly Barclay Award winners.
November already? Traditionally, this is the time of year that we give thanks for still being here, fogging the mirrors on Planet Earth, the only home we've ever known. It's a place where visionaries, sullen teens, posh private school kids, and emerging artists from all over the map send us Unofficial Music Videos for perusal and possible praise.
“The falling leaves drift by the window/The autumn leaves of red and gold/I see your lips, the summer kisses/The sun-burned hands I used to hold.Since you went away the days grow long/And soon I’ll hear old winter’s song/But I miss you most of all, my darling/When autumn leaves start to fall.”
