I Tried Something Different

OK, so anyway, I tried something different.



Because Thought Is Not Prayer

The poem first appeared in Salt Hill 28:

If you go there, you can read a selection from the issue through the ISSUU interface, one I like very much. It gives you that page-turning feel. I'm a sucker for pages that turn.

About the clip:

Bob Boilen, one of the NPR music hosts and bloggers, distributed a rhythm track and encouraged people to do something with it. So there it is.

I might make a video for it this weekend (Or maybe I'll move to another town and change my name.). But anyway, Boilen suggested people upload their tracks to Soundcloud, so I did. While I was at it, I went ahead and uploaded the tracks I recorded several years ago now with Brian Bonhomme, as The Renos.

They’re all downloadable for free:

And then I made the video, because, well, here goes.

I think it works!
Reminds me a bit of Soul Coughing, who I've been revisiting lately.
