Re-edited the Tag video to fit more with a song by Kathy.

This is a video for a song by House of Freaks.
I will be focusing on making videos for The PAN
Music Moments, using songs by bands I like, which don't have videos.
Filmed on the train down to Virginia and edited it on the ride back to NY. I have loved this train ride, in the past. It provided a much needed transition time from NYC to Richmond.
But this time is difficult. I have not visited since the murder of the Harvey family and I am still broken from it. I don't know if I will ever fully repair. I find myself crying most of the ride down and back. Making the video is difficult because of this, but cathartic, I am hoping...
Notice how the shift in the camera's perspective alters the way the land passes outside the train window. With the camera's lense parallel to the window, the trees pass by so quicky that they become an abstraction on a flat flickering screen. When the camera's lense is at a 45 degree angle from the window the world outside gains enough depth to become a doirama of streets lined with toy houses.
It is amazing how a small alteration in physical perspective can change so much.

Around these parts we call it 'Mary-oke'. Watch this video and you will understand why.

This is the last video from my conversation with David, a friend who works for the UN on demilitarization efforts in Sudan. The audio is taken from a conversation we recently had, here in NYC, with video he made while in Sudan.
It is heartening to know that some of the people involved in making policies and developing plans for severely damaged places in the world are creative, down-to-earth and caring. It is easy to only see only the negative decisions being made by people in government and corporate agencies who seems so removed from the reality of situations at hand and never know about the people within the system who work hard on for positive change despite the odds they are up against.

Get your dance on with these highlights from Faublous Entourage playing on the Rocks Off rockin' boat ride. Their song 'Hello', is now the official (not that anything here is all that official) theme song of my videoblog. Pardon the frenetic filming style , I did mention that it was on a boat, right?

Back by popular demand. Live and kicking, it's STICKERBOOK!

All that emotion. The pathos and performance, it is positively classical, greek even? To paraphrase Richard Wright, and the words of their souls were the lyrics of popular songs.
