Originally, “Michael in the War” was supposed to be the first song from <em>Aries</em> to have a video made for it. Lots of big ideas floated around, but the human condition ultimately hindered production.
So instead I edited down a bunch of old, dark footage filmed in San Francisco, California and Great Sand Dunes National Monument in Colorado – circa 2000. The grey colors of the Colorado scenes are natural. There was no manipulation with a computer, in these regards.

illumination was submitted for the Tapeworms March theme: “Wake Up.” I am posting it today because it’s Easter Sunday and I find this to make for a pretty good Easter mix. My only regret is that I didn’t have it posted this morning so that someone might wake up to it.
