In 2005, multi-platinum recording artist R. Kelly launched a cultural phenomenon with the mega-hit urban operetta “Trapped in the Closet.” The show defies categorization. Part contemporary movie musical, part urban soap opera, part epic music video, part independent film, this groundbreaking series unfolds like a juicy tabloid story, full of suspense, mystery, drama and packed with unexpected twists and turns.

Fans and critics alike applauded the unique series filled with over-the-top characters and complex story lines, all set to a sexy R&B groove. Viewers demanded more, and R. Kelly delivered again and again with brand new characters and plot twists and 22 chapters of whatever was going on inside R. Kelly’s rich interior world.

The premiere chapters were a suspenseful, mysterious, humorous and dramatic story, packed with cliffhangers and unexpected twists and turns. Now, Sylvester, Rufus, Cathy, Gwendolyn, Bridget, Big Man, Rosie the Nosy Neighbor, Twan and Pimp Lucius are back! This year, the crew reunites on IFC in the next installments of R. Kelly’s continuing hip hopera about a group of characters interconnected by sexual exploits, little people and a mysterious package.

TRAPPED IN THE CLOSET is produced by Sylvester Films and Fuzzy Bunny Films; R. Kelly executive produces, writes, stars, and co-directs with Jim Swaffield; Ann Carli is the producer. For IFC, the show is executive produced by Jennifer Caserta, Debbie DeMontreux, Christine Lubrano and Evan Shapiro.

Check below for a teaser of the third installment.

Exclusive premiere: Say Anything “Burn A Miracle”

031312_Say_Anything

Posted by on

For a self-described “fairly passive, overly analytical and neurotic Jewish guy,” Say Anything’s Max Bemis is pretty obsessed with anarchy.  It’s not the capital, circle-A, kind of anarchy that comes to mind, but his own spiritually rooted brand.”I believe that all of our collective existence, that of life itself, time and energy is essentially an all-encompassing, constantly evolving organism,” he wrote last month in an essay for Spinner. “What one might define as chaos is really just each particle of this greater thing expressing itself and thereby powering a greater truer good.”

In “Burn A Miracle” we see these particles reveling in explosive chaos — caped crusaders soar and plummet through the sky, a bowl of Cheerios bursts into flame, an American flag in all it’s plastic glory is made in China. Some of this hits close to home, clearly someone has something to answer for. When we prodded Bemis to answer for this anarchistic extravaganza, he replied simply, “Clearly we like chaos enough to center our record around it; clearly we like chaos enough for this video to exist.”

You may notice how “burn a miracle” sounds sometimes a bit like “burn America” when Bemis shouts it. Coincidence, or just chaos? This is the album opener from the band’s new record, “Anarchy, My Dear,” produced by Tim O’Heir (Superdrag, Sebadoh), out today on Equal Vision Records.
