A Pandemic Video Diversion

When I can’t take one more word about the Covid-19 Pandemic and the Royal F.U. in Washington DC, , I do this:

  • Make a quickie, multi-track Garageband recording (in this case, two guitars and my sister-in-law’s schoolgirl recorder) …
  • Nab a bunch of royalty-free birdy videos (pixabay.com and pexels.com) …
  • Match it to a birdbrain quote from William Blake from one of my college notebooks …
  • and start playing around with filters …
  • Upload. And repeat.
Marylin’s recorder. I think from 4th grade.

William Blake’s birdy quote:

“How do you know but that
ev’ry Bird that cuts the airy way,
is an immense world of delight,
closed by your senses five?”

And birds, birds and more more birds:
