Memorial Day



I keep forgetting it is Veteran's Day in America and Remembrance Day in Canada. Here is a video that The Cappucino Kid made for this memorial holiday last year.

just me actually!
but it was posted on the drunk punk collectives blosite started by dinners, so thanks to him too.
and thanks for getting this to a wider audience. i feel i must explain it!
it came to being one morning, bright and early after laying in bed the night before listening to "the wall2 by pink floyd.
as the song mother progressed i was overwhelmed with images, most of which i managed to transplant onto the video. some of it i wasn't happy with, but on reflection i am glad that i didn't alter it (been tempted a lot these last 12 months!) as in it's rawest form, it seems to carry more of an impact.
it is difficult watching in parts, but i think thats what the song called for, and it's what i imagined when i first had the thoughts!
i'm rambling now, so i'll shut up.
hope you appreciate it. been tempted to do another, but on a different theme. watch this space!

thanks candy.

Labor Day, Mr. Anchovy, Labor Day. I get the two mixed up too. I drove to the cemetery at the Naval Base and sat in silence for a while looking at the rows and rows and rows and rows of graves.
