Swiftly Spins... A Valentines Day Collaboration

The idea for this video came from Michael Lydon. He sent me the song and asked if I had any ideas for a video. I wanted to see the lyrical theme of "love through the ages" transformed into vignettes of multiple love stories. So, I made a vlog asking for clips that fit the theme, without telling too much about the song or what I pictured. I didn't get too many responses, but the ones I got were terrific. The clip that I provided is the second vignette: my parents wedding.

What's in a name?

... or a video title, for that matter?

I received a request to change the title of one of my videos because it bore a similarity to another person's twitter username. A ridiculous request, but in the end, I complied "to be nice." What a sap. "'Tis but thy name that is my enemy..."

Got shrooms?

This little video is some footage I shot last month at Fungus Fair 2010, an annual event of the Fungus Federation of Santa Cruz. The event features displays of wild mushroom varieties, mushroom foods and medicinals, and mushroom inspired art works and crafts. This is actually the second time I've made this video - the original version was of Fungus Fair 2007. Am I officially out of video ideas? Stay tuned to find out...

Oh, and this video also includes new original music featuring my new Yamaha APX700 guitar (see previous video below). On that note, I've also added a music page to this blog - Hear more of my music by clicking here.
