Permanent Records

Background: In 2000, Darryl Costanzo (frontman of Black Sedan) formed a video label to distribute content produced by his band and associated acts (usually concert videos). This lasted until 2007, following a series of mergers between Congressional Tapes and the original incarnation of Something Else Industries.

Logo: We see a close-up of somebody's eye. The eye opens and we see a film-projector countdown board in the pupil. The background irises out until only the countdown is left, and once it finishes, it flashes to various distorted backgrounds before settling on a dirty brick wall. The Permanent Records logo (the word "permanent" in a grungy copper font sandwiched between two sections of the white word "RECORDS" is in the middle. The background flashes off-screen, leaving behind the text "Ok, we're done." before it flashes out as well.

FX/SFX: Everything.

Cheesy Factor: None. It has been confirmed that Darryl got permission from Jonathan Davis to use his song in the logo.

Music/Sounds: The opening to "Blind" by Korn.

Availability: Appears on old concert videos such as Black Sedan: Putting the Wood Back in Stock, Hot Cars and Open Wounds: Live at Lunches, Comatosithonand We're not Dead! Yet!. It also appeared on projects where Black Sedan were involved, such as early Snot (no affiliation with the nu metal band of the same name) videos (before they joined YouTube), Si: Movie Edition (which was bundled with a disc compilation featuring all three of the band's LPs) and Southpaw Grammar: Cinemarized.All releases are now out of print.

Scare Factor: Low to medium.
