New Video-"Test Area"

Been working an enormous amount, so haven't finished any new studies, tho some are in the last stages. Meanwhile I worked for a couple weeks on this, which definitely took more time than the others in the Project...for Broadcast, a band whose singer's end I mourn a little bit more everyday. I definitely count it as my favorite vid so far, as something about the song and the looming industrial spookiness of massive jets lie quite in peace with each other. Now that I have begun using After Effects almost exclusively, the videos are definitely getting more crafted and time consuming, but the quality of the images and what you can do with them staggers me. Which makes it quite worth the extra time.

The Great Bert Has Flown.

I loved him more than any other guitarist who ever lived, apart from perhaps Bo Diddley.

What makes me even sadder is that I am away from all the friends who would feel just as I do today.

We have lost something real. His music meant more to me than i can ever explain. His songs marked so many important times in my life, and when I was a musician, Bert was the man I learned from.

I will be eternally grateful that I was able to see him live in Los Angeles at the Palace. It was like seeing God. And he played like an angel.

Please remember him today.
