Shopping Mall Blues

Maybe its me…but I got a kick out of this “music video” posted by a man sitting in his Dracut home alone while his wife is out shopping.

Here is how the poster, raygoshay1400 describes the video: What’s a guy to do when his woman abandons him to go shopping? I wrote this in December of ’96. I recorded it on a boom-box the next night. The video is simple enough. The creative time for this must be a record for me – seven hours from concept to finish. The house is the Dracut, MA homestead as it appeared in ’78 the year of THE BLIZZARD in Eastern New England. I purchased the painting in the background of the final frames in ’82, so there’s plenty of time-line bending going on here.
