Throg

Throb

This video arose out of some experimental stuff I was doing with different things doing different things. All this was some years ago but I happened to watch it a few days ago, liked it so decided to give the old thing a new home.

Honey Bun Mtn

Honey Bun Mountain

This music video is an absolute lyrical failure. Music Creator 6 (No Touch) allows 32 tracks and I used them all and then some, having to bounce 32 down to 8 tracks. Video was worse as I recorded every aspect of the project, MIDI controller, keyboards, acoustic, electric, bass, all of it. But come mixdown the cutting room floor was knee deep in unused media as I used but three video tracks and the audio mix. But the main failure was the words did not equal the vision, the only time I got close was in the last line of mine (before the dancing lady, who wishes to remain anonymous) where I mumble "Failed poet that I am/dreams fading in the sand".

Last Man Alive

Last Man Alive Last Day Alive

Not a happy tune what with the end of the whole damned world theme running strong through the piece but what can I say? Between batshit crazy shooters going around killing people and our global leaders just a hair away from launching every nuke we got just to see if they still work I feel less safe now than when under fire in Vietnam all those long years ago.

Heaven

Heaven Is High

After a prolonged period of writer's block I actually welcomed this fairly lame excuse for a song. Like a lot of my stuff it doesn't really make a lot of sense at first glance but, with time (and maybe a bit of mind bending) the hidden nuances will emerge like bubbles rising from scummy swamp puddles. I screwed the pooch on the Les Paul portion of the video and had to reshoot it, I was too lazy to actually play it again so I unplugged the guitar and played over the thing and it synced out somewhat awesome.

LifeFail

Life: Fail?

Yet another rather cheerless piece of work from the grumpy old man vector but then what else should you expect from that end of the market? But hey, it was fun to do, especially as I spent more time with the graphics than on the actual music. And even if it sucks blue turd water it's one of mine so I'm required by the culture to love it anyways. And hey, it ain't that bad so enjoy.
