I should add making videos to my list of possible activities, because that's what I am currently doing to keep myself off the streets, but it didn't work today, - at least it didn't keep me off the ground. There I was, creatively searching for subjects for the next brilliant video for youtube, to accompany some of my songs - and I suddenly got the brain wave to illustrate one of the lines from my tune "Gotta Move On" ( from my latest CD - watch for the video soon).
So this one line says "gotta roll on", and I decided to do that literally and I filmed myself rolling on down a hill - just like I used to love to do when I was six years old. Well, here's the news, folks: it's not fun when you're no longer six. In fact, it makes you feel ill and quite wretched. The things I do for art. And does Art ever say thank you?
I survived, but just. And now I'm passing on to you the benefit of my wisdom (got a little late). DON'T DO IT. (although I think it will look like fun in the final video package).
Before all that foolishness, however, I had a great night on Friday at our gig. The pics:
