For those of you who liked our film "Fool Throttle" last year, or for fans of the "Rock and Roll" that the kids all seem to like, here's a new animated music video that I directed and animated for Oakland CA's The Heavenly States. I collaborated with a local artist, Kristoffer West Johnson, who is a friend of the band's and is doing their new album cover, t-shirts and graphics. It's called "Pretty Life". It'll also be shown locally on PBS's MNTV show and will be at film festivals all over in the upcoming year. It'll also be on rotation on FUSETV, a digital cable channel that I've never heard of....

Caution! 17MB Quicktime:

and here's the band's website, they have it posted too, under "video":

http://www.theheavenlystates.com

If you like it, spread it around! We're trying to help the buzz on this band!

oh, and my producer would probably want me to post the studio's site, too:

thanks!

yeah, you know them? they're really nice people. Ted, the singer/guitarist is from Owatonna, MN, same at Sean Tillman, Lucky Jeremy, and a bunch of other local musicians and artists including all the guys in my band. Must be something in the water down there.

They're amazing live!

Thank you, that was starting to gnaw at my mind. Just say hay from me and hopefully I can bump into him and catch up sometime.

Thanks again for unblocking the melon. Ah free to think of something else to forget too soon.

Anyway it was along long long time ago.

yea, Cloud Cult shouldn't be left out of any discussion of Owatonna musicians. i'd like to see Burnsville City Limits sometime too - I've always enjoyed Dander's sense of musical comedy - Pelvis Aquarium!

You should talk Dan and Ryan into doing a Lotus Eaters cover - maybe "Walkin' the 'Loids"... ask them if you don't know what i'm talking about - they will.

love music - just don't play.
architecture is my art.

thanks for posting that national mural URL, i was just about to...

burnsville city limits grew out of the ashes of plutonium foil which was me and ryan with masanori (mark) playing guitar. basically the lotus eaters mach 2 with me drumming instead of dander. not that we achieved as much as the 'eaters did, but we are all old and busy now, you know... now that masanori's out in la la land, we've got dan leading bcl with ry and i, so it's still kind of an evolution of the 'eaters. we are redoing some songs of another old dan/ryan project called cinder mon matter or sometimes cinder yonder, and we've talked about doing an 'eaters tune or two, but there is a sense of reverance about them with that crowd, so we're a bit cautious and we're writing a lot of new junk too. i knew of the lotus eaters in thier day and used to play at some of the same venues, but i didn't get to know them personally until i worked with and met ryan back in the late 90's.

band geek stuff... oh yeah, and burnsville city limits is all about dan's humor. unfortunately, we're a permenant side project due to dan's involvement with cloud cult, but we hope to do a couple shows this summer. i'll keep you posted, eh?

hung with ryan this sat, he wanted to know who you were! ? pm me if you like...
