Hey Y'all,

I've been recovering from skin cancer surgery on my leg for the past week - 30 stitches. So night before last I was playing around drawing on the computer and I got this idea to make an artsy motion visualization video for one of my songs using my own art and adding my own effects. I finished making the video late last night. It's a little trippy. I used it on my most listened to song on SC that I wrote last year. I thought it came out well for my first time doing a video like this.

I wish we had a specific forum for user videos - (hello Andrew???).

Anyway, if you watch in full screen HQ you'll really get the full effect. <grin>

Hope you enjoy it. Thank you for watching.

I Can't Be Your Friend


Josie

Hi Josie.

Sorry to hear about your surgery, but glad you're recovering now.

So, following your advice, I watched on the 47in monitor in full screen and with the lights out - it's just before midnight here in England as I write this.

Wonderful, except that the super graphics and your lovely voice nearly sent me into a trance! You obviously put a lot of work into that and it was certainly worth the effort.

I don't remember that song, but it's got to be one of your best. Just going back, now, for a second listen (and view).

Take care, ROG.

Graphics were great, but not as good as the audio. What a beautiful song!! I had not heard it before. It was quite pop style compared with the others I've heard. Love the song, the vocal, and the arrangement! Are those BIAB real tracks? Love the EP. Take care. Greg

Whoa!, good thing i was already resting horizontal. The room is still spinning ever so slowly. Thanks. Very nice song too, with that distant sax behind you melodies.
-Patrick

P.s. With 30 stitches i might be tempted to tell folks i was bit by a shark while surfing the North Shore ( there might be a song in there somewhere). I wish you a speedy recovery!

Great job on the video and music. You have a talent for producing both. Enjoyed the video. I think I can't be your friend would have been a perfect song for Karen Carpenter were she still living today. This is a well written song.

Hey ROG,

Thanks for watching on the big screen! So glad you enjoyed my artistic vision of the heart's emotions moving with the song.

I'm better now the first few days are a foggy Hades. Get these stitches out on Monday.

Thank you Greg,

Yes it's all RT's. I am so spoiled with them I can't remember the last time I played anything I actually recorded. I go through genre phases - keeps it fun. Glad the song moved you and you liked the video.

Appreciate it,


Josie

Patrick,

Your shark idea made me laugh - I could really do that 'cause it looks like something took a bite out of my leg. Down here I could say it was a gator.

Glad you enjoyed the music video. And I was not on pain meds when I made it - just in case you're wondering. smile

Thank you Charlie,

I'm so glad you liked the video and the song. That song was a very emotional write.

Karen was one of my favs growing up.

Hi Josie,

the video is nice.
But I think the song doesn't need graphics.
It's so beautiful on its own.
I really like the vocals and the arrangement.

Josie, Wow! I missed that song somewhere along the line. This is undoubtably your best song and performance. Well written with an incredible melody. Extremely well sung. Nice job on the real track selection. This is the real deal. Excellent job. Hope you heal quickly. I'm going back for another listen, I love it. Tom

Hey, heal up quickly!! That's gotta be a tough thing to go through. Our best to you.

Well, I've got 12 years on Janice and during the summer when she was a lass of 11 years old (1968) I graduated from college and made the obligatory trip to San Francisco.....so I've got good cred when I say we loved the song and the light show.

A fine song and super cool graphics. My favorite part was the lightening. Everything works well and works in concert. Congrats on a memorable production!

Josie,
Wonderful song as usual but I have to say I was careful with the video since my mini-mini stroke type thing (TIA). I passed the linkie to my Optician, who plays sax in a Jazz band, and he said he LOVED the song and will use the video now as part of an eye test LOL!

Really beautiful vocals Josie

Nice melody and lyrics. This is a great number, definitely one of your best.

Yep, the video clip is a bit trippy, but certainly works overall, and there's nothing wrong with that!

Nice, enjoyed the listen. Thanks for sharing, and full recovery ASAP eh?

Trevor

Neat song. Hard to believe the song and video were done a year apart since they match each other so well.

Hope your recovery continues to go well.
