I enjoyed that, when it started I thought I knew what it was, and it was that sort of film that's very nice, where young people walk through nature in nice but simple clothes, and everyone is quite confident and life is good and the camera looks up at the sun a lot and the colours are nice. I have a friend who makes films like that. They are good films. There is lots of music that has that sort of imagary, young folk music that I'd probably like. But sort of hate it. In the way I hate most television. It's too confident and caught up in it's own image to mean anything to me. So I thought the video was that and that would be sort of fine, it is a lovely song, there is lovelyness in the lyrics and the sounds, so it wouldn't be wrong. But then this realness started creeping into it, a humour, very subtle irony, a quality of film that carries more associations of real life than beautiful bleached out by the sun, and friendship and joyous ameturis and all that crept into the video and it made the words real and the loveliness honest and strangely touching. I think it's great.

This link goes to: " Shine On You Crazy Diamond - Full Length Version ! - Pink Floyd - Pulse - HD " Duration: 13 min. 24 seconds. Added to YouTube on August 6, 2010 by GilmourTrueHD.
This link goes to: " Skip Way's Drawing Chronicle 24 " Duration: 5 min. 56 seconds. Music: " Go My Bail " and " Rock Me " ( with Tony Glover on harmonica ). From the 1965 " Snaker's Here "...the first album by Dave 'Snaker' Ray. The 6 and 12 string guitar by this soulful singer is rich indeed !
Here's the link to a new video by Skip Way ( that happens to be one of my favorites ) :
" Flower Riffs 5 " Duration: 5 min. 59 seconds. Music: " Sally May Melia " by the superb Irish accordianist Sharon Shannon. Added to YouTube on June 4, 2011 by skipwaytube. * More riffs done with Microsoft Paint of flowers sent to Skip by his sister Andrea Way ( a fine artist too ! Her labor-intensive drawings are in several outstanding museum collections such as The Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C. ). Here's the link to the thread I started on this site titled: Andrea Way : artchival.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=contemporary&action=display&thread=4833 ( located within the "Contemporary Art' board ).
NOTE: Skip Way is my artist/friend who has ALS ( Lou Gehrig's Disease ). He inspires me with his intense evolution of artworks done with 'Microsoft Paint'. Even though he is slowly dying....a great love for life is expressed through his digital artworks and videos. Skip can barely get around these days but he loves creating artworks on his laptop. I really appreciate the entire staff at the Care Center in California for helping him every way possible ( they keep his spirits high ). So, even though I live in Orlando, Florida I Email Skip often and he always responds promptly. He makes me appreciate the blessings in my life ( here at the age of 65 ). Shine on you crazy diamond Mr. Skip Way !!
