ok, so there is a hokey forest sex scene that keeps this video from being amazing, but disregard it. let’s look at everything else that’s amazing: the song itself is floaty, ethereal, with a beat that ties you down enough so that you don’t float off into the heavens, and it builds up like love. the closeups of forest creatures is so wonderful. i want to see more snake scales & turtle shells & snails unfurling their eye stalks. the star and forest shots hit me right in the heart. now pardon me, while i watch this video a few more times in a row.

swoon central! “long gone” by mary epworth. seriously 60s video, but more modern sound.
here is a good song to energize you, or for a grey morning, or for a sunshiney day, or for when you are walking down the street.

when i win the radio wars at work (cbc 2 vs virgin/jack/trash) i get to listen to music like this. so catchy, in its acoustic soft way.
first encountered in this incredible video of a woman’s quest to teach herself to dance in a year (her outlook on life is so inspiring! if karen cheng can approach obstacles with such vigour, why can’t i?)
blah blah, here’s the song
