Whatever floats your boat...

A new interpretation of Abel's twisted lyrics about "what is NOT love", a role reversal, and a look inside the man in this story.

I don't know what it is about an angelic voice singing curses in a mild melody that I find terribly hot ;-)

to Me, That's saying I did something right here. 

Did ya notice the surface of the mirror image dancer's body is the image of 100$ bill?

@Adams - so you're saying you haven't changed a bit since the old days

@Willie - Hey hey...I certainly tried over the 7 months...and nearly gave up on this song! Glad I didn't

@ Steve - Since your comment 'reads' like THIS :

I feel I should repond like: 

 , this  or  

 I actually kept the famous photo of "Dietrich in a Tuxedo" as inspiration as I planned for this. I even sent it to a few friends who said i couldn't pull it off!  You seem to have caught on nicely, despite you cant decipher the lyrics.--I wouldn't worry about the lyrics, they are a brand of twisted misogynistic musings written by Abel Tesfaye. Much of his body of work contains this thread of desperation, loneliness and objectification of females. I wanted to capitalize on those elements by turning tables and revealing what's inside that character.

Now I've said too much....I am glad people are getting to see this and like it even though it's twisted and kinda multileveled.

@Steve - Yea, I had to share that video with you because it WAS a great tribute from one to another artist.  Upon finally skimming through a recording of the Oscars, I learned one of these iconic muses has died in 2014.  Lauren Becall, your image and works live on.

Finally got to this one. Holy CRAP that's a lot of work in there. Bravissimo !

Hey, while you have yourself shrunk down to that size can you crawl in my Mac and fix some shit ?

Sexy momma.

@Amy - thanks Hotstuff. Thanks for watching. This one has so many levels of twistedness and I always appreciate when other creatives recognize how much work it takes just to make pretty little colorful things.

I've been inside these Macs before. It smells like greed and doesn't turn me on,  so I stick around windows environments.

*srsly tho, I'm sorry to say, I've just begun working with Macs at school and on lockdown for maintenance

Grrrrrr! Each time I get half-way through this (3 times now), it starts running a script or something and Firefox freezes up. I will try again, but if once more I don't get to make it through to the end, let me just say that I love the turning of the tables. Amazing work here, Sara, a great coordination of images, movement, and vocals.

@NatureJunkie- If you watch on Vimeo, not the embed, maybe the script will stop running. I hope you get it to work for you soon and also thankful you took the time to watch. 

I enjoy the table-turning aspect of self expression whenever i deal with issues between men and women, especially when it puts a spotlight on sex and relationships.  bahahahah....

for some reason THIS song just popped into my head:

@NatureJunkie - if this version doesn't work for you, Maybe the alternate "Vanilla Version" will:
