The Ark

Whatever floats your boat...

My vocal interpretation of Aimee Mann's "save Me". I finally recorded 2 songs from the "Magnolia" soundtrack, which I adore. Here is my amateur solo effort to provide a musical/visual interpretation of this painfully melancholy song. Hope you enjoy as much as I enjoy indulging in these expressions. Thanks to the monkey family for enduring my musings...

Beautiful, but I see the Lt. wants me to post C H I G again.

@Adams - what could you possibly mean by that? You don't like Chig's singing?

@ Chig - REPOST IT>>>>I WANT.  Come on, Like a RickRoll. ChigRoll me baby. Maybe wake this place up..before 2012 and we're all floating in a river of death...(morbid much?)


and thank you for humoring me, guys.I JUST got back my desire to sing at all.  Now I'm like a ninja, trying to bend space and time to get things done because I am SO scared school is going to steal my brain and my voice too. I've heard the Chig song can ward off these spirits....hint hint.

Fantastic. I always really like Amy Mann.

Your editing skills haven't rusted a bit....just awesome.

Everything about this was beautiful, Sara!  I'm so looking forward to seeing more!

@Blanchie..Yea , I really like that Amy too...and thank you. I got a barebones version of Vegas while my school data rules my computer but it comes right back to me as soon as I get into that riding a bike.

@Ruth - Oh dear. You make me feel so happy, just that you watched..that you enjoyed, that you saw something in it..and named it "beautiful" ...what videographer could ask for more.  More..oh, well I'm working on that, with of course the help of some VERY talented carry me along with... Live long enough, meet enough good people, and learn that's the way it's gotta be done.

You've done Aimee Mann justice, Sara. You've got a very sweet, expressive voice. It's wonderful that your desire to sing (and edit) has returned.


Is this video of mini-monkey recent? It looks like he's become maxi-monkey.

@NJ - the compliment is sincerely appreciated. I'm feeling under pressure so trying to get some creative energy out in case the pressures get so high, I can't even put time into it. Singing came back to me after a long respite..of not feeling like it at all. I always sympathize with performers knowing I CAN'T sing a song and mean it unless I can find that place for real...and when times are tough, it's tough to find my voice...


On the MONKEYS! THIS video IS CURRENT - just a week ago or so. It's so great you inquired.

The one with glasses is Mini-Monkey ...He earned himself a new nickname in June ...SPLEEN TEEN, or SPLEENBOY...He suffered a spleen injury that put him in PICU, quite a scare that he powered through like a REAL trooper, and as soon as he was released from restrictions, he went HAYWIRE with Activity...It was a good celebration of end the summer!!


and the HUGE ONE with the Grenade Tee is Middle Monkey (HS boy).  He's like MONDO-Monkey. I like this, being as tiny as i am. Having a son who can be there for ME now is wonderful...he's a great helper in every way, even emotionally.  He's tall and strong and a good man...I love my boys...and I'm so proud of them.


thank you for asking. gives me an excuse to say how much I love them...
