Sober, the film

I love the "out of the blue" nature of the internet. When I created a remix last year called "Snow Geese at Hagerman Wildlife Preserve" at CC Mixter.org,
I imagined the resulting soundscape as a kind of nature film, with hundreds of white snow geese on an open field.

I got an e mail today that let me know that "Snow Geese at Hagerman Wildlife Preserve" is featured in a couple of guys' 7 minute "short film". The film is called "Sober", and it's a parody of the film "Momento", with a plot about a fellow who drinks a drink that renders it impossible for him to regain sobriety.

Best of all, it's free to view, by going to this website and clicking on the hyper-link called "Sober". Sure enough, the snow geese now appear in service of a fun bit of film parody.
It's the kind of small film I wish I knew how to make.

My week of multiple hearings, meetings, and the actual trial of an arbitration has finally subsided. I see two great work days and a free weekend ahead, and I am happy.

I hope all of you are well and happy. What shall we discuss today?
