here are two videos I made about current events ... on and about YouTube

even though it combines poetry and drawing, it feels a little photographic to me. You know... moving pictures....

This is about a YouTuber who found a body in a forest and showed it to his audience:

This is about a YouTuber who tried to do something exciting for a video and ended up killing her boyfriend. It includes footage of me drawing my Single Piece of Paper entry:

Fascinating work, Don. Thanks for sharing with us.

You're a performance artist. A man of many talents.

Thanks for sharing those with us.

I enjoyed those Don. Your markings, overlaid drawing and painting, accompanied by spoken word remind me improvisational jazz.

Did you consider adding some ambient sounds? Might muddy the water but could also take us deeper.

I didn't. I thought of music, but I'm not good at music.

Excellent. I really enjoyed those. The drawings and poetry worked really well together. You've got a great speaking voice.

This online Theremin is great for that sort of thing.. Hours of fun.

Thanks Don for reminding us of the cultural failure, the cultural amnesia and the cultural stagnation in which we fall sometimes.

Last, but not least, your reading voice reminds me of Michael York's voice of his younger years when he had the monopoly of the best books on tape recordings. A dreamy voice without being sentimental, a voice from the solitudes of the soul.

I find Michelangelo appearance less interesting than the urgency of the deeper forest although the image of the book between the chest and the pistol is haunting.
Keep us posted please.

Profound and moving, Don.

Beautiful creations! And, with that voice, you really had no choice in life but to be a poet.

Wonderful creations. With kaleidoscopic talent comes the freedom to fly, to visit every nuance that you care to explore. You chose two instances that open depths of feeling to an artist to plumb, to converse with, and that's a further talent, what to light upon. But it's all open. I'd happily watch an entire movie of this.
