In August 2011, I began recovering from the most devastating illness I’ve ever experienced. Sitting and walking on the sandy beach at Lake Michigan was one of the only things that made me feel grounded. Every time I think I’m fully healed, I realize it’s still ongoing…
I filmed this last August and finished the video in September 2012. I hope you enjoy!
Filmed at Lake Michigan in Evanston, IL, on 8/16/2011
Song: “Deadbeat Seagull (Toro Y Moi Remix)” by Neon Indian (neonindian.com — toroymoi.blogspot.com.)
I’m re-entering a phase of heavy mash-up productivity. The “Buddha with a Thousand Arms” video captivated me when I saw it earlier this year. That footage sat in a folder on my laptop for a few months, until inspiration struck and I matched it with these two songs.

Songs: “The Pull” and “Morning Ritual” by High Places (hellohighplaces.blogspot.com)
I got hooked on this video after learning that it was the original behind M.I.A.’s “Jimmy.” When I decided to mash it up, I had little trouble finding a song with a similar beat structure.
Rolling into Feb 2012 with a new mash-up video! Facing my own semi-traumatic experiences with nightmarish ’80s movies as a kid.
In the spirit of my Aphex in Wonderland, I bring you a series combining the classic animated film The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and the album Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robot by the Flaming Lips. This is part one out of 15.
The FOURTH audio/video mash-up I made in September.
The third mash-up I’ve released this month!
I’m on a steady roll with the mash-ups! Raise the rainbow, Michael!
I created this audio/video mash-up on September 4, 2011, with minimal editing to the original footage:
