During a recent 2-month bout with pneumonia, I began to explore my spiritual side, and was finally moved to write this Gospel song, along with a little film...

Thank you very much for your comments. I will definitely see some of you at Apple Hollow. However I should warn you NOT to attempt these stunts at home. They were done by a trained certified lunatic. Especially do not drink and hammer.

Oh my goodness, that was fabulous! I think I'm converted now, but Thor - or some guy named John F. Weldon - owes me a keyboard, as I've snorted coffee all over mine.

Seriously, that was a great video. I am impressed.

I'm frankly awestruck. I've just discovered JFW has been one of my Unknown Heros for many, many years. The first four year olds I watched LDW and TCCB are all grownups. I have no idea how many times I've seen them, but it's a big number. They never get old, and they are just as neat to watch the fortieth time as they were the first.

John, picture me salaaming atcher feet - or, well, don't picture it, as I can see you have a lively imagination, just accept my sincere admiration. ;-).

Oh yeah, one more thing: This is no BS! That is, I do not believe it should have been classified as "non-music."

Of course, the artist himself decided to put it in the below-the-line category, so: So be it ~ I suppose...

The last musical video went above the line and got only one response; which was a suggestion that it should have been below the line. It dropped off the chart in a day. (The subject matter is a bit obscure) For those who missed it...
Heisenstadter

On the other hand,
Peta gals
was dropped into an already running BS thread, and got lots of comment.

It just seems like there's more action below the line, but who knows?

There is definitely more action below the line. That is why you find me and Peace and a loyal coterie of similar goofballs down here on a regular basis. We know where the action is!

Didn't you do one about naked gals awhile back too? They were protesting over something and you were trying to get them to be angry at you so they would picket your house.

John, that was great. Can you give us lessons on how to do the animation and special effects?
Any really basic tricks?

Sorry about the Clones - some of them are a bit too quick to rearrange things. In general, a thread is supposed to stay where the originator put it, unless it's absolutely clear that the thread is in the wrong place. We don't move a BS thread up top just because somebody posted one song in a 300-message thread. And we don't move a political or religious song down to BS just because it's about politics or religion.

John, sorry about Joe. Sometimes he gets a bit befuddled, thinks it's others who are 'out to lunch' and then announces so publicly. This is a thread about a song, and it belongs in the music section. Which is probably why Joe didn't move it back down where John started it.

John, I rudely forgot to say that I listened to your song and think it's a hoot. Why not Odin, though? Thor DOES have great hair, but Odin's the Big Kahuna of Norse gods!

Wow, now I've been on both sides of the line! Quite thrilling. One of the things I've most loved about folkie music is that it is indeed loaded with opinion; political, religious, philosophical. No wonder it's often unclear where to start a thread. I love hearing people sing passionately about issues, even those that are long defunct; the Spanish-American War, the Great Plague, the Wars of the Roses, Gnostic Theology, transportation to Australia, etc, etc. They really do cast a light on our current world. And I like to join in the fun.

Thanks for all the great comments.

Joe -
About Animation... ...I've often given serious thought to teaching. In the old days, at the NFB, every time I thought of a "subject area" or an important point, I'd write it down. Like a naughty schoolboy, I used to write them directly on the surface of my desk. Alas, one day they gave us all new desks, and my notes vanished.

Some topics I recall: "Stretch and Squash", "Timing", "Anticipation", and "The Unseen Cameraman".

Nowadays Animation is MUCH cheaper it used to be. Just the translucent cel we used cost about $1000 per minute. Film itself cost a lot, and required pricey equipment to edit. The computer makes it cheaper, but not that cheap. You'd still need to spend (on software and hardware) the equivalent of a Vintage Martin Guitar, say, to really get going.

cheers
John

I should note that the great Norman McLaren made a 5-part series called Animated Motion, available from the NFB. It's animation at its most basic. A great place to start, though he can be a bit tedious. "A ten frame hold differs from an 8-frame hold, in that it is slightly longer, and lasts for a greater length of time."
Highly recommended.
