Animated short of the week (Life)

I finally installed the sound card driver, but I've no speakers. Best I could manage for now was to plug the sound card into the telly's three coloured sockets, but it wouldn't play the sound without a video signal on the yellow socket. But it just about works.

Many thanks to Thia for filling in whilst I was out of action. In case you missed her choices...
And now for this week's selection...
He has an interesting simple style. Its really just photos and captions, but synchronised with the music, its very effective.

The music is excellent, but he has a tendancy to display the captions at the same time he is singing something entirely different to what is on the screen. But even then, some of the conjuctions are clever, putting "So this is goodbye." against "Are we alone?".

Even so, the imagary tends to overpower the music. Watch it once, then play it again with your monitor switched off. (Or just close your eyes.)
In my dreams I'm dying all the time.
Then I wake your kaleidoscopic mind.
I never meant to hurt you, I never meant to try.
So this is goodbye, this is goodbye.
