Artist: Every Time I Die
Title: “Shit Happens”
Label: Ferret Music
Release Date: 10/31/2006
Concert video lovers beware! The video “Shit Happens” was filmed over a two-year period in the life of the band Every Time I Die and as a result, it is not your typical concert film or band focus feature. You don’t get the aspect of being at a full show from start to finish on this one. The video serves up to the viewers a “tour film” and from this you get to enjoy the ridiculous goings on that this band seems to get involved in on a daily basis. You can immediately notice that ETID is a band that really seems to have fun doing what they do and the film shows just how tight the bonds are between all of the members. The fact that the film has been shot in such a candid manner really brings you into their world and how grueling the aspects of touring on a day-to-day basis actually is. When you find yourself in such a confined amount of space and under such demanding schedules of the road you WILL get on peoples nerves. You will fight, you will drink and most definite you will bust each other’s chops often to the point of being downright cruel just for the sake of some laughs. There does not seem to be a dull moment anywhere in their lives and ETID shows a true side of them by using this candid footage. It’s the kind of footage that is a treat for those viewers who enjoy a large amount of behind the scenes stuff more than just performance clips or a straight concert from song one to the end rundown. Some of it is very, very gross at points and while I could have done without one or two vomiting scenes there are those who find this hilarious.
Many elements of the Jackass television show are used in the manner that they treat one another. A downside for me was that there was there is a lot of apparent time wasting footage such as shopping trips and poker games that are shown a little too often but I guess they really just wanted you to see their world. I did enjoy the moments with the Buckley’s Dachshund as those provided a needed “cuteness” factor to the film. Those seeking music will be happy to know that it is not all fun and games here and of course and you do get a large amount of concert video from the guys. You see them on the Warped Tour and their US Headlining appearance as well as their Buffalo Christmas Show (the boys do hail from there so it gets preferred treatment). They show the band down in the region that suffered Hurricane Katrina, but from the clips, you can’t tell if their presence was actually helping or not. The DVD also includes all of the bands videos to date as well as some added treats. The film is geared for the diehard fan and following more than anyone else but it is still an amusing way to kill a couple of hours. ETID had their album “Gutter Phenomenon” cited as “Album of the Year” in 2005 and this film allows you to celebrate with the band as they show you the good, the bad and the ugly aspects of their work without any level of shame. The complete videos by the band as of this release are also included for your enjoyment.
