Visually, this is beautiful. I like the electric colors.

Thanks you, ladies, I appreciate the kind words.

There is a new video over at http://members.cruzio.com/~cafe by Robert Priest, called 'WMDs' that is very powerful. You might like it.

Great stuff Blue.  I just checked out Priests’ WMD.   It seems that this art form can be very effective in making highly powerful statements!

Poetry and film are the most related of arts. High speed internet playing one to two minute movies of poets doing what the oral tradition of literature demands of it. It's a synergy that's overwhelming. An absolutely wonderful 'throw-back' to when men walked the commons and entertained the commons with verse. Only this time, the commons has a billion people cruzin' 'round with browsers.

There's going to be a lot of poets appearing in places like this and at the Cruzio Cafe. My main focus is original poetry, both written and spoken, shown in such a way as to reinforce the text without overwhelming it. That's my main goal.

Others have differert focus - image first, music first, eye-candy first, etc. But mine is the spoken words, first. That's the script for me. It colors my opinion of the flashvids I watch. And my comments will usually come from that 'love of the script' place in my being.

But it's not all war and blues tho'. There is lighter-hearted stuff at: http://jjwebb.ihwy.com/graphics/  you might enjoy a couple of those. If you liked 5th Ave. Blues, you should enjoy some of the others from 'Talking Heads'  .. I try to do a new one every week or so. Thanks for the nod, I appreciate it.

what happens here that that blank space shows up, up above? And the quoting doesn't seem to be functioning properly either, hmmmm, mystifying.       -b

I believe it has something to do with the transfer from the old boards to the new Boards.  This will only occur when trying to quote quotes that occurred on the old boards.  You will be able to quote posts that have been made after January of this year without problem.
