Nothing. Boring!


Members of the Instant Videos Facebook group all get a last minute invite to be part of the Instant Video shoot for #14 on New Year's Eve at our house. Tammy says, we have to do the Gravity Song. In keeping it on the positive.

The elements come together almost by themselves.

6PM What's the idea?

8PM I don't know.

Just find a place you're comfortable. I'll set it up. Take Georgia's chair... Start playing. I'll record you.

The other day, I put Gravity Song on repeat and my brain somehow noticed two elements in Tammy's back-up vocal I hadn't isolated before. One saying "nothing" and the other saying "boring." I instantly flashed on a way to get everyone who walks through the door involved somehow (with some editing.) We can create some kind of video guest list.

The guests arrive, lyric sheets are passed out. The borrowed hot light from W is a blast of heat. Then, Gestapo-style, guests are asked to deliver two words into the camera. Two words that typify the evening's sense of humour. It's a Happy New Year, after all.



The Gravity Song
by Tammy Lin Foreman


Negative gravitation
bringing me down, bringing me down
got the negative gravitation
bringing me down again.

And if I feel positive,
positive, positive
then I can fly
And if I feel positive
positive, positive
then I can fly

Thoughts in my head
like muzak
boring the sound
boring the sound
thoughts
in my head
like muzak
boring the sound
for me.

And if I clear my mind
clear my mind, clear my mind
then I can hear
and if I clear my mind
clear my mind, clear my mind
then I can hear.

Projecting the past on the present
nothing but fear, nothing but fear
projecting the past on the present
nothing but fear for me.

And if I let it go
let it go, let it go
then I can see
And if I let it go
let it go, let it go
then I'll be free.
