Music video we made to promote the 12th annual Gangrene Film Festival. We put together a Bigfoot band that covered 80’s arena hits to be our pre-show entertainment.
(I wrote this a couple of years ago for a Flash Fiction Group that I belong to on Facebook. It was then posted on Blogmaster2000.com – our Creative Agency’s blog.
The monthly theme was “Song Lyrics”.
So, I just wrote the lyrics to a song.
A love song.

It is funny how the Flaming Lips just kind of snuck up on me. I had never heard of them until the release of Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots in 2001, and even then I only came across them on accident when the album was being streamed online by AOL in pre-release. The title completely caught me off guard and made me smile, which isn’t always an easy thing to do. And really, that in a nutshell has pretty much been my whole experiences with the band ever since – continually doing something that catches me off guard and makes me smile. I think I connect mostly with their music for their alternately goofy and wise lyrics and for their seemingly endlessly restless searching nature. And now I am a fan – as big a fan as I can be of anything, anyway…
