I like the lyrics and the mood…but this video is confused and a comedy…no wonder poetry, art, romance, and Love is a lost art.

Although I have nice photography equipment, I currently don’t have the means to pay for film, gas, blah blah blah. Eventually I will obtain the means to return on a course that makes a serious attempt to take meaningful images that have a respectable level of quality, but for now…I share this image taken with my phone. I don’t feel so bad. I see this view almost every day. I don’t need to scope out the right vantage point, apply filters, or wait for the right light…or play with development times..dodging or burning or cropping. This image captures what I find to be so beautiful about a Northwest winter day…in a very rough draft form.
I won’t pretend to be some knowledgeable hip music guy, but I wanted to make a quick slam here at the hip hop status quo. There is this song I heard on the radio that I kind of like and so I looked it up on YouTube. Of course I found the hip hop version (second YouTube video below) with the “stars” and the lights and the costumes…the YouTube post had almost a million views.
But, then I stumbled on the below YouTube video (first one below) that has three people playing the same song in a van. I’ll take the version in the van seven days a week including sunday. Of course this version and performance of the song only had around 11,000 views. I am glad social media enables such a version to exist…a version most of us would never have seen prior to the existence of an alternative outlet to mainstream media. A good example of how the creative process can be used to make money or to sing from the heart.
