thats great. I can't work out if its dancing or flying. Both maybe.

And trust you to do it better than the rest of us - soundtrack, titles. Tch! and you can't see the strings, or anything.

BRILLIANT! Bravo!!! Standing ovation from the crowd. Yes!

Yes, Letty is quite right - titles and music? Fabulous.

Must watch it again right away.

Who are you? There's still so much more of you I have to discover.

This has an early Michel Gondry feel to it and I thought I was going to hear Bjork's voice cutting through the plinky-plonk.

And look at the comments from your admirers.

Where are you? (I'm obviously going through an existential mood now)

The pic won't open for me: will try again later. Noice (!) to be back, I missed your pics.

Hope you are soon out of your misery with your teeth fixed. I feel for you. Take care.

INC - no, tis magic!! me and debbie magee. a combined effort. shame on you for not believing!!

LETSO - i thought i could smell lettuce. i think it is flying whilst dancing. it took me a while to figure out i-movie which is fantastic, so expect a film festival shortly. and tis no better than yours at all. enough of that nonsense. i especially loved 'i am still clapping'. so there ;0p

REYA - thank you love. i just had a treatment me self and feel much better. aah! ;0)

DONALD i'm rather stoopid if you really must know. and no, that's me nan on the bontempi..

MA - pleased you liked it. i am afraid i am pretty slack with email though :0(

THOMP! - no amount of timtams can protect you from the manipulating telekenetic mind of pod!

SIR DWIN - erm...those are big questions, but ones i can answer. i am pod. pod i am. i am here. here i am. see? i blush and shake my head humbly in response to the michael gondry ref. if only edwin, if only ;0o

NATLY - i will send the youtube link to you. i will be fine after the weekend and look forward to a cuppa avec toi a bientot ;0)

Pod, I am speechless. I LOVED that!

You were so careful with the music - I like how that little blossom floats around and then zips away just as the music fades. I like the fact that the blossom is off-center most of the time, showing all that wide sky. It took me a while to figure out what that floating thing even was. And when the bird flew by, that mirrored its shape.

I also like the titles. (How do you make titles??)

I'm going to watch it again immediately. A deep bow of admiration to you.

I know a shocking anecdote about Debbie Magee and trapdoors and Paul Daniels not being where he was meant to be and hands.

This reminds me of hermit crabs and praying mantis thingies, Pod. And those white spiders that sit on daisies.

I rather like things hovering like that. Like funny hub-cap flying saucers or Jimmy Somerville as the angel at the end of Sally Potter's film adaptation of "Orlando".

You know, I'm finding it harder and harder to visit blogs these days. I just want to be a recluse.

what's the podchannel on youTube?
nice podcast. what was the music (nice until the sec beat was inserted hafweg thru). for a while the combination of the artificial 70-80s sound with the object hanging in the sky made me think boards of canada and their archival videotape music vid for dayvan cowboy.

in terms of working out what is was doing...after i stopped thinking of it parachuting, i thought it resembled an inanimate object stuck in a spiders web .

ooh moving pictures now Poddy!

You and Debbie Magee eh? Not Bobby? (did you see our Debbie on Celebrity Wifeswap? Letty and I enjoyed watching that last week! - we thought Paul Daniels was a catch!)

btw, I wasn't fishing.... honest! but impressed by the title and soundtrack stuff (she's good, your nan!) I potter about with iMovies but I have no idea really what i'm doing. Maybe I should read the book?

Fascinating - and nicely done as usual. I can't say I get the name on this one though - I mean I sort of get it - but I'm not sure. Otherwise - I love the concept and execution.

P.S. - I do think you and Mr. Reed are meant to be together - you fuss over one another so! *WINK*

STE - aah. thanks. i am glad you enjoyed it. i knew that one day i would use that music for something. to me, it was a perfect fit. the soundtrack to my mind at times...

SIMON - don't be a hermit (crab) for too long. i will miss you immensely and nobody will get me in quite the way that you do ;0p

PENNY - welcome! yes i knew when i first lay eyes on her that i needed to proceed with caution... ;0p

JAZZY - podland loves you too! ;0)

JAMES - sorry to irritate you with inappropriate beats. will you ever forgive?? hmm??

SHELLY - always! ;0)

RAINDOG - heaven only knows what goes on in the brain of pod! i get the odd glimpse. odd bein g the operative word there ;0p

RW - i need to have a quiet word with you young lady...

HHB - oh thank you! ;0)

LETTY - can she be trusted? i hire out my nan if you are interested. she doesn't eat much at all, and is most obedient. she will sit very quietly, until you shout 'NAN! PLAY SOMETHING!' and off she goes. it is always the perfect tune too. she is a marvel. read the tutorial, i did after a month of screaming and finally got it! oops x

WACKO -SMITH - if you paid proper attention, you would know that if i do indeed fuss at all, then i fuss of lots of folk, not just the reed. i think that all exists in your head perhaps??
