For just under a year, STICE has been churning out 2-minute music videos at an alarming rate. A truly alarming rate. Red flags have been raised, and the authorities should be contacted, if they haven’t been already. How is something this warped and on this consistent a schedule not either the recruitment efforts of a well-funded death-cult cabal or the cry-for-help webcam ramblings of a colony of Midwest preteens held hostage in a basement content mill?
Somewhere between HUMAN HIGHWAY and YTMND—with the barely-linguistic dream-logic of the “How is babby formed?” Yahoo Answers question thrown in for good measure—Stice is dial-up netscape nightmare fodder, your first grade friend who would make his Rollercoaster Tycoon 2 creations crash into a concession stand, zolo-horrorcore for the TikTok generation. This screening will feature their 9 music videos, including their micro-hit “Look at the Baton,” which continues to confound the chess-YouTube community. This screening will feature Stice members Jake Lichter and Caroline Bennett in conversation.
