On the A-F grading scale I came in at about an X in my attempt to harvest video clips for my Blogstar parody.
Technically, I scored a 10.5%, a number that would get nearly anyone tossed out of whatever educational program they happened to be in. Of the 38 video clip pledges, only 4 arrived.
The 4 that arrived were great (THANK YOU!) but I’ve come to the conclusion that I can’t have 3:48 of darkness and 32 seconds of action if I’m going to be the next great American songwriter and video director. I think I’ll just have to leave music videos to the experts.
So, this is just a quick announcement that I’m calling off the video. Just in case some of you had rented out lavish settings and video equipment. I’m bummed as I thought it’d be really cool but I think I underestimated how difficult it would be, especially in the throes of summer. It’s chaotic enough so I’m sure I just added to a never-ending “To Do” list anyhow.
Instead, I’ll just be putting up a little graphical version in the coming weeks as I at least want to put the song out there. To those who have the recording, please continue to keep it under wraps. There’s still about six readers who haven’t heard it yet.
