Hello, friends.
Here's the art. . .

Apart from sewing and stuffing teeny tiny bits of cloth under a microscope this week, I worked on editing the second of my music video trilogy. I also did some brainstorming for the third and final video, which I haven't begun shooting yet. I want to do something different with the puppet heads in each video. The first one had photo faces cut out of paper, the second will have cloth doll heads, and this is my idea for the third. . .

Notice, this is just a rough photoshopped approximation of what it will look like. I plan on making the TV heads out of wood and putting the kids' ipod touches inside to supply the screens. I'm not sure if I will actually build a guitar that looks like an old cable box. Will anyone under 30 even know what it is? Scratch that rhetorical question. I don't really care if any of these two-thumbed-texters-today recognize these old electronic relics. I have fond memories of rotary phones, typewriters, and rabbit eared TVs that leave a little spot in the middle when you turn them off.
I just watched a six part documentary about Monty Python, and it took me back to a time when I had to actually stay up late to see a program, which I tuned into focus on my little black and white TV with the round UHF antenna.
Am I preachin' to the choir here? Can I get an amen?

We still have rabbit ears! Of course they are attached to a 42" high-def flat screen TV, but no cable/satellite fees for us. Just 10 channels in English, 4 in Spanish and a DVD player. And board games for when the rabbit ears don't work.
