VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK, PART ONE : JED'S OTHER POEM

Here's something everyone should see.

Mikedot and I are deep in a mutual ass kissing fest, conducted entirely over the wire, which is the way I like it. But this isn't just a cheap attempt to win his favor and get the chance to record more of his music. He introduced me to Grandaddy, the band I currently fantasize about fronting, and that's worthy of at least one post.

The great thing about this video, other than the video itself, is that someone made it using the most basic of tools (a 48K Apple II - hell, this post is probably bigger than 48K and only about half as cool). Like a single coil pickup wired straight to a vacuum tube, it's a great example of using minimal technology to delve deep into the heart of the universe. Let the molecules do the work; that's why they're there.

That was very cool and yes, that sounds like a band you would want to front.

I hope you had a great new years celebration. Look forward to seeing you guys soon.
