What a find. This is an incredible video. I love the animation, especially in the opening boat ride when each turns into a child or parent version of him or herself. Really terrific and thought provoking (and a bit scary, too). And you're right, the music is "to die for." Thanks.

would love to see your view of lake michigan...

Thanks Stacey. I know! I really liked that part too, where they both momentarily become children or "parental." I also like the dance at the end where they throw each other their heads, arms, and legs to become a new remix of themselves. I tried to find other sections or the whole entire film online. I haven't been successful yet. The search will continue...

Stay tuned, Bill! I will weave in an image or two of the lake at some point this week.


Lisa, Try this:

Scroll to the bottom of the page. For some reason I couldn't get it to open but maybe you'll have better luck.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
