And NSers and PEIers and La Bellers and even yer Uppity Canucks.

I am totally distraught. LEJ put a lot of work into helping me with a song I wrote on accounta I can't play or sing worth shit no more, as some of you know. It's on YT. I took the song and added pics for a YT vid but I got one gigantic hole in the middle of it. I begged for pics from my fellow Herring Chokers (NBers) that are involved in the cause that I wrote the song for (I hope I NEVER feel the urge to write another song for someone else. It was rough trying to cull stuff to keep the length of the song reasonable. Hmmm. No. It was excruciating.)

So, in a last ditch effort to get more pics outta this crowd after getting a bunch, I posted "my vid" on Vimeo to show them what I wanted. Fact is, my health will not allow me to jump in my truck and go get the pics I want and those pics are an hour away from me. One hour. The last pics I got from this group of "concerned citizens" who have had billions of $ stolen from them by the forest industry and their government lackies was two months ago.

So... pics of the woods. Woodlots, wildlife, pulp mills, logging, chipping, big trees, plantaions, "sylviculture", choked streams, dribbling streams, muddy streams after rains, warning signs of herbicide spraying, aerial photos... ANYthing. Jaysus, send me a pic of a cute rat with a bushy tail!!! Just send me forest pics.

Here is what I tried to accomplish with ONLY pics from NB. I posted it ONLY to get pics from people invloved in the cause. Sigh.

Is Our Forest Really Ours... lyrics by gnu, everything else by LEJ

This is why I wrote the song.

Thanks JtS, Megan.

sIx... great! Thanks.

Went to r1's Flickr page. Gonna take a while to go thru over 1100 pics to choose ones that might be used in the "vid". Of course, as they are all cw'd, I will have to then ask her to send them attached to an email. Thanks for helping out, r1. Means a lot to me... to all NBers who have had SOOO much* $ taken from them while the government cuts healthcare, education and so many other services, especially care for our seniors who worked so hard all their lives. When I see a veteran or a widow that needs... I gotta stop now as I have a tad of a blood pressure problem.

* 2010 - over $150M. Been going on for 30 years... or more.

Thanks, m.

Bobert, if that means the song & vid, thanks. If it includes those helping me with the pics, I highly agree.

LEJ did a wonderful job with the music, instrumentals and vocals and really helped me out when I needed it. I owe him the most thanks of all. He ain't only gooood at what he does, he's a generous and kind man.

Hi gnu,
   I'm not in the East, so I don't know if I can help?
   You're welcome to any of my images on Flickr that you think would work. I made you a "friend", I think that will allow you to download. If not, please let me know and I'll find another way for you to get any you want.
   Search my photostream for "forest" "mill", etc, to give you a selection, (which unfortunately will include unrelated images that also fit with those terms).

A couple of my favourite mill shots:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/29562174@N00/2350939353/ and http://www.flickr.com/photos/29562174@N00/3358627423/

Some of the forest shots are here.
