'And the Poet's pinned tragedies to their chests like ribbons' - Iamcalledchief
I was inspired by Redheadmonster's original image from the short story 'First Place Goes To' by iamcalledchief but thought maybe it needed an alternative angle to it!
I have remixed, but I cannot create the same simplistic beauty of the original image.
So, I did a paper stop-motion :P Feel free to remix and such! I put the original version of the song up, just so it's easier to add more on top.
(Don't ask me why we're barefoot in snow--this was shot during a Thai heat wave!)
Special thanks to my friends Tanya (cameralady & co-conspirator) & Nathan (dude in the video)!

Spent all my coins on a wishing well.
And if I close ...
i've been dancing around this idea for an illustration for a while, but never narrowed the thought down to a final design, until two days ago, when I had a creepy-ass dream that brought me here. :D i hope you enjoy!
