think of this as one for the fangirls AND fanguys! tee hee. cuz you know they're out there.
been working on this one for almost a year because
a) it's one of my oldest and dearest friend's songs, a GREAT song! so a labor of love b) i was learning the program as i went c) i took long frustration/burnout/REsource-collection breaks
now it's time to put it out there for REmixing and general play. enjoy!
written, performed and sung by Ron Linden, aka ronton. ♥

one of my favorite parts of the evening, when stephanie delivers 2 great renditions of the king midas tiny story (and joe deals with an impolite heckler.)
i was recently in ohio during lightning bug season, and took a lot of video of them. metaphorest mentioned to me that she'd never seen any, so i put this together for her. not nearly as magical as the real thing, but just a little intro!
many thanks to pasiv for his version of megan carnes' "sunday evening". it really pulled it all together for me, emotionally and otherwise.

i'm so, so glad to see this song resurrected, cuz i truly love it, it gets me every time.
i started working on this late last september, shooting the pics and trying desperately to learn my way around final cut pro, thinking i could have something done by that halloween. not only was i way too ambitious, but then dan left us...and it was so not the moment for this.
the truth is, i didn't think i could/would ever finish it.. but with some nudges from sarah (who knew what i'd been up to last year) i dove back in, and here is the result. i hope it does justice to the song.
thanks again to lizzie and sarah for being the beautiful, inspiring creatures you are. and to everyone else whose resources i will now try to track down! with much love. ♥
idk....is this guy breathing fast? i couldn't tell if he was frozen/freaked out, or just very zen!
my boss almost stepped on this guy's ahead, right off the back porch at work. he was too cold to move very much, and i spent about 20 minutes with him, snapping photos and video. got lots more if needed! along with nice snake-tongue action. ;-)
goat babies! from in the womb (watch them move!) to being eagerly bottle-fed (when mom doesn't have enough milk for multiple births.)
just some general springtime footage, with thanks to hangLOOSE for the perfect accompaniment.
so today at work, the sink clogged. and i went out to the little external drain, pulled the concrete cover off, and - it was full of frogs! haha, no kidding.
for your remixing pleasure: clouds over desert, a little tripped out. music is by wirrow. the file is called "movie cliches" but i can't find it by that name on hitrecord. somebody help me!
we got rained on heading thru marin co. yesterday. this is raw footage from our drive thru the waldo "rainbow" tunnel to the regency.
over the golden gate bridge in the fog, on the way to ther Regency show in SF. this is raw footage, speeded up 2x b/c it takes almost 3 minutes to get across!
mirtle's bird, animated. idk if this is on the site somewhere or not, but i'd never seen it. the whole intro was super charming!
dr gory spinning his camera around, pre-show.
joe reading Zeppelin Zoo live on the stage at the Regency ballroom, SF. (i ran this until my memory card ran out.)
here's joe's roll onto the stage from another angle.
this clip is tiny, but it shows the house in motion!
ok, a little indulgence: zengineer playing with the via bird while sitting in the audience of the regency theater, waiting for the show to start. :-)
i took the sound out due to ambient (me) noise, but here's our resident insectoid alien in motion. i like the way he decides to nonchalantly groom himself after sizing me up. think how weird i am from his perspective!
wherein i pretend i'm opening the package for the first time, but i'm not b/c i kept dropping shit, had to endlessly re-adjust the camera &etc. der!
the tinkly sounds are the windchimes outside the window, sped up along with me. :-)
