a post on another blog...

"this artist is outrageous-streuth- a dog - OH I"M SO ANNOYED.

how dare he do this.

how dare he use an unempowered creature and do with it what he wants. It's outrageous. I can't believe a human would do this to a dog. I can't believe a human would manipulate a creature unable to speak for it self for his own wants, needs and goals.

I can't believe in a sophisticated developed society, this kind of behaviour is possible.

I can't believe that so many citizens are unaware of what is happening in their own country. I can't beleive that a human would willfully do something that compromises the quality of life of another.

There needs to be more awareness made about people that do this sort of thing to others. It surely can't be allowed to continue. Surely the people will up rise and exclaim NO - enough already."

the blog is connected with an artist who placed a dog in an art gallery.

The blog is mediated and a post that I thought was reasoned was not published. The above has been written in a deliberate 'rant' style in a deliberate attempt to get it published by the blog administrator. I believe that the blog is somewhat biased.

When reading the above entry, consider the American government, instead of artist.

What are your thoughts ?

the work on this project is going well. The audio edit is complete, the video has been cut to the audio.

There will be a podcast version of the concert available on the Abbey blog site quite soon, well after I've had some lunch...

first attempts to upload were unsuccesful. Disappointed. :(

DVD delivered

I delivered the DVD to the school this morning. It seems to have been running for months, which it has. Wait for feedback now...

it just a word

the word is

investigate

reading through a past feedback form, this word appeared and it has stuck with me. Is it a core word for the year about to happen...

a school DVD project

in February a school in a nearby place moved buildings. I was asked to document the move. Something I enjoyed doing. I learnt a lot from the day itself and a lot more from the subsequent DVD preparation and conversations moving the DVD to a close. Today a second version of the DVD is being burnt. On it is a summary of the day, as that's easier to watch as it's a bite size version of the lovely bits.

As the old school opened in 1909 and closed in 2008, the full versions of the last assembly, the walk to the new school and the first assembly in the new school remain on the disc, as a historical record of the day in 2008, when the pupils of the school moved to a lovely new shiney building.
