I'm just taking a little break from cutting fabric and sewing from my freezing studio/bedroom. At the beginning of the week I learned that my application to vend at a spring craft fair being held in Flint was accepted, so I've been working a lot in the basement, err, I mean... my bedroom. There isn't a lot of natural light nor artificial light downstairs to make me happy like this view I am currently looking at as I type this post right.
I'm extremely excited that the weather has calmed down precipitation-wise and warmed up (as I'm sure most Midwesterners are happy too). I wish I could sew in my backyard, but the ground is not so pleasant. I'm not going into details of how my dogs made the grass stinky. So during this little warming-up-from-freezing break I decided to look up some colourful fun to inspire me. I found this vibrant music video at the We Love You So blog.
I've never heard of Mia Doi Todd before viewing this video, and though I don't entirely understand what she is singing I can say that she has a lovely voice. There's a certain magic about this video that made me think "How did they do that? It's almost like computer," but honestly it's just people and different coloured t-shirts. It's simple direction to move, like how cheerleaders guide you at a football game. Though, instead of cheerleaders guiding the rainbow people it's Michel Gondry, so there really isn't much of a surprise that it's creative. I guess there was just some disconnection from what my brain processed and what my eyes saw.
Tell me what you think.
