The Ark

Whatever floats your boat...

For Euterpe and her sisters. If the muses won’t visit you, write about them. They’ll suddenly be on you like mosquitoes on a clean baby.

Wow, Amy, so many levels of awesome in this piece;

those crazy-good riverside shots, especially that longshot/pan from what looked like the air.  Very cinematic. 

The composition (reminded me of Peter Gabriel), the lyrics:  "I throw my bottles from the shore just like a castaway. I watch the nets of passing ships that pluck them from the bay",

the editing- especially the underlay of rainbow-y creativity and the (tear?)drops dripping onto the melody.

So good to see you in full bloom again.

Muses are such emos.

@ Syd- Thanks Syd (((love)))

@ LtAdams- Yeah, they really are. Right now Terpsichore is all pissed off 'cause she thinks Euterpe stole her emblem and has informed her that there will be no dancing at her wedding or any other milestone functions until her funeral. Now Euterpe wants me to explain to her that the aulos just didn't show as well as the lyre on the temple doorway. It's like herding cats.

Soooooo talented. Good to see you and Pen too. We should skype again soon. It's been too long.

Wow, you sure put in hours and hours of work just so that I could enjoy 4 minutes of delight. I am SOOOO glad that you still make videos like this. Seems to me that Euterpe served you well, but I'm going to give you all the credit. Thank you, Blanche.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

This is really good.  Could use a little cowbell though.

@ Chig-  GET OUT OF MY HEAD ! Seriously, when I was pacing the short hall while editing and waiting for rendering I was chanting the phrase "needs more cowbell" in my head. He's a witch, people. BURN him ! ....

...or elect him president or something, wait, lets see if he weighs as much as a duck first.

@ Space- YES. and thanks space *smooch*

@ NJ- thank YOU and there were all kinds of "happy accidents" on this one that I suspect the sisters were involved in somehow.

@ Ruth- (((love))) So it looks like we'll be venturing to your neck of the woods next year. We will talk.

Thank you.

Woman? You just put together a myriad of creative media and conceptual ideas into one very crisp concept video.  I love the idea of illustrating the experience of the Muse and how painful and desperate it is.  She's torn and a bit envious, lonely like a mother who cannot hold her children.   I love reading that you had so many "happy accidents".  

There's been a folksy 70's vibe in your last 2 tracks; a little Doors'y on this one. Perhaps the Muse is enjoying basking in that time period. Maybe she'd be appeased if you throw her a pair of White Bell Bottoms , Handkerchief top and Boots to wear around the lake.

@ TG- Thanks ! A little dark bird told me you are pumping up your guns.VID-EE-OH, VID-EE-OH,VID-EE-OH....

...and just imagine that continues until you post a video.
