MJL Fun Fact: On this day 19 years ago, we had an interesting day as fat fucks in my backyard with 4 mattresses we had back there.

Some of this footage made its way on the MJL Documentary so if you ever get a chance, check that video out!!

3 new Stop DMC music videos from the double album Most Hated are now on YouTube and in the music videos section. Hope yall will check them out. :)
On a side note.. Don't know how much more music I'm gonna be making. Something is wrong with my voice. It's like I can't hold my breath like I used to when I record now. I'm running out of breath when normally I could recite the lyrics just fine. Plus, my voice is really raspy. It's like I can't not do it even if I tried. If you listen to Most Hated, you'll see what I'm talking about. This actually started when I was recording Remember Who The F**k You Are. My voice was fine, but I was running out of breath so I had to simplify the lyrics. I plan on doing 6 more videos from Most Hated. After that, I want to do a 2 track free EP and that might be it if I can't fix my voice issue.
Wednesday, October 21, 2020

Went with Jimmy to Las Vegas for two weeks of this month to film a vlog for him as he competed in this year's WSOP. He placed in 2 out of 4 tournaments that he played in. Pretty cool experience.

Friday, April 20, 2018
Here is video 4 of 9 of my project of music videos for this spring and summer. It's the song Lost in Time, off the album Growing Up.
Just a little back story to the idea of the video. When I was like 4 years old, my great grandpa would always take me the convenience store where I would play arcade games and get a bag of Funyuns. We would always take the same route to the store, and the tree in the video was on that route. I would be in the car on the way to the store just thinking to myself, "Whoa! We were over there, and now we're over here!" Basically, thinking about moving through time or traveling through time as we live life. So when I wrote this song, I knew a video had to be filmed at that tree. I actually talked about it on a verse to the song "The End" on the Halloween Heartagram EP. Dubbed "The Tree of Time".
Hope you enjoy the video. :)
Sunday, April 15, 2018
VIDEO 3 OF 9 OF THE 2018 SPRING & SUMMER OF MUSIC VIDEOS IS NOW ON YOUTUBE!! It's the song Sleeping While It Rains, off of the self-titled Stop DMC album.
MJL Fun Fact of the Day: On this day 16 years ago, we jumped Cody's BMX bike into the bushes that were on the side of Seth's house. Originally featured on MJL2K2, thought we were getting pretty gnarly back in the day with those bush jumps. LOL.

Friday, February 23, 2018
This free album is a collection of songs I made to various Linkin Park demos from their Underground (LPU) albums. Back in high school, Linkin Park was THE band. They're what open the doors for me to get into heavy music. Was saddened by the news about Chester Bennington's death. Wish I could've met him. Guess this is kind of my tribute to them.
Listen and download the album @ stopdmc.bandcamp.com

I'M STILL CUTTING DEMOS!! Hope yall will check them out, though. And maybe I'll start doing shows in the near future. Lol. I know I'm going to lock up and probably forget lyrics and everything else on my first show. Have crazy stage fright. Never really saw myself being a performing artist. Just wanted to stay behind the camera. Maybe it's the MJLness "in front of the camera" in me trying to come out. Anyway, I'm rambling now. Hope yall like the new albums. (if you decide to listen... if not, that's cool, too :))

New Stop DMC EP to be released on Bandcamp on Halloween this year!!! Here is the sampler video for it. Check it out!!!
Also, another MJL Fun Fact: We had The Pact 2 on this day 17 F'N YEARS AGO!!! We had stayed up all night the night before, and Seth passed out in Cody's room at like 11 in the morning. But not before he pushed the bed against Cody's bedroom door to keep us from getting into the room. With the help of Seth's cousin Trey, we pushed the door open and the bed back to where Jericho and I could get into the room. Seth is a light sleeper, so we didn't get him that good. But after all this, I went to my first music concert ever the same day with my cousin Shane and Trey. And who did we go see? Britney F'N Spears!!! No joke. Shane was a big Britney Spears fan. I ended up sleeping all the way to San Antonio in the car from being up all night. Crazy times... :P
Friday, June 16, 2017

Get Down for the Revolution script
Tuesday, November 29, 2016
In case you're wondering what I've been up to the last couple of months, I've spent the past 4 months writing a full length feature film script. Started on it at the end of July, and just finished it yesterday. It's about my life and dance metal pretty much. Experiences that I've had filming shows, making music videos, and of course the MJL videos. I discover this band that's different from everyone else. They call themselves "dance metal". Then my friends and I throw dance metal parties to try to get the genre known. So if anyone from Hollywood, Austin, or wherever, sees this post that knows how to make a legit feature film and believes in our videos and dance metal like I do, then hit me up.
Brown vs. Board live @ Fitzgerald's
Monday, November 07, 2016
This is kind of a lost show that I didn't know I had until last night. Found a tape in my closet with this show on it. So decided to upload it to the Dustin Cardenas Video YouTube. It's the band, Brown vs. Board, in Houston back in 2006. Go check it out!!

On a side note.. This was my first ever convention that I attended. Didn't know what to expect, but was overwhelmed by all the artwork and different vendors. Shout out to Rogue Nation Wrestling. I gave their champ one of our cards, so if he ever sees this post, just want to say that I enjoyed yall's show at the convention. Am a big wrestling fan if you didn't know.

Multi-Cam Edits of The Jonbenet & At All Cost

After capturing all of our MJL Mini DV tapes, I decided to go through all of my 3-chip Mini DV tapes as well from 2006 to the present. In doing so, I discovered some footage from 2008 of me filming a commercial for my would-be cologne for men. During this time, I was on ExploreTalent.com thinking I was gonna get all these acting jobs and blow up as an actor. This was also the time when I started doing sketches, and I ended up drawing something that looked like it could be a cologne or perfume bottle. So I was like, "Man, I'm gonna blow up and have my own fragrance!" (like Britney Spears or someone like that). So while staying at my uncle's place one night in Austin, I decided to film a "commercial" for the cologne. After discovering this forgotten footage that I never used or edited, I had to make the long lost commercial. Don't know what I was thinking, now looking back on it. LOLOLOL

This video is of my Memaw's Elvis Memorabilia Collection in her living room. My uncle is remodeling the house soon, so we wanted to get everything on film the way she left it. She had so much stuff which is why the video is 9 minutes long. Enjoy, if you're an Elvis Presley die hard!!! ELVIS LIVES!!!
Also, just an MJL Fun Fact: We did Trash Can Bowling 2 on this day back in 2001.. Don't know, just wanted to share that.. LOL

Here is another free Stop DMC single that you can download on my Bandcamp. The beat is by producer, Dr. Franken-Rhyme. He has a Bandcamp as well. Check him out. The song is kind of mournful. The beat really influenced the tone I went for. But anyway, the song is about trying to live the dream while being careful what you wish for. Staying cautious I guess. Go listen for yourself. :)

Re-blog #? (I don't know) :P Click the title of this blog to check out version 2 of At All Cost's music video to their song "The Irony" that I did in 2006 featured on the BlankTV YouTube channel.

Outtakes & Dustin Cardenas Reel 2
Wednesday, December 17, 2014
Directing, Editing, and Videography Reel 2 (2012-2014) is now up in the music videos section. And if you're a die hard, then go check out the 25 minute outtakes video (2008-2014) now up in the short films section. Seriously didn't think it was going to be that long, but had so much footage to choose from that it was hard to narrow things down... So I just put everything.. Well, everything that I wanted.. :) It could have easily been 10-15 minutes longer with all the footage I had..
C'MON VINNIE!!!! Go check out my Acting Reel #2!!!
Saturday, December 06, 2014
My new acting reel is now up on the Halloween Heartagram channel (also in the short films section) along with a "made for fun" music video by King to his version of Elton John's "Bennie and the Jets", simply titled "Vinnie and the Jets" (which is also in the music videos section). Haven't started working on the outtakes video yet. Will take a few days to make with all the raw footage I have to watch from all 19 short films. Will get it up ASAP with a new Directing / Editing / Videography reel as well. Stay tuned...
My LAST 2 Short Films
Monday, December 01, 2014
Two new short films in the short films section (Eyes of Hate & Noises of Winter). These are most likely the LAST shorts I will be making. I may make a sequel to one of my early shorts, but if I do it won't be for a while. Also, will be releasing a new acting reel and outtakes video within the next week or so... But other than that, my short film days are over.. I know... So sad, so sad :P As an artist sometimes you just need to get some things out, whether if people will think it's good or not... And with my shorts, I feel that I got out everything that I wanted and am satisfied.. Aaaaand I'm spent!!!

Got the idea to do this the other day. I'm suprised no one else has thought to make a rap song to this beat. At least, I don't know of anyone. Anyway, this is another free song you can download on my Bandcamp. Just wanted to talk about my favorite time period of pro wrestling. And if you're not down with that, I got TWO WORDS FOR YOU!!!..... Go listen. :P

Back in 2009, rapper, Lazy Pockets, wrote a song called "Look How Dey Sag". He ended up retiring from the rap game after leaving on top, and the saggin movement died. Well, fast-forward to 2014... and we have the birth of Stop DMC. With one EP release and another on the way, he decided to resurrect the Lazy Pockets classic with his own style and lyrics. And... here it is for your listening pleasure at the above link. You can download the song FOR FREE @ stopdmc.bandcamp.com

Here is the sampler promo video for my brand new EP entitled "Unborn Life". I would say it's a little more conceptual than the last EP. Also, I used some effects in a couple of the songs. Deeper lyrics in my opinion and yada, yada, yada... Just listen for yourself... Lol.. It will be available on Bandcamp once again on July 4, 2014.
