Mog

I was asked to edit a video concept for a band a friend of mine works for. It’s a remake of the 1972 Crosby-Nash’s hit “Immigration Man” with a slightly different, some have said enigmatic, politically neutral and even far out, view of the immigration issue.

  1. I loved this cover, better than the original, actually. The visuals were excellent, a lot more interesting than watching a band stand there and play. And they moved along at a nice clip, not too fast, and not so slow that my A.D.D. kicked in. All in all, I give this whole thing an A+.

  2. Yeah I liked it too. The connotation I remember for this song in the 70s was that of dope smuggler trying to get weed into the USA. The universal migration of life is a nicer theme and the video conveys this at a pleasant pace, as Wendy comments.

    Conceiving all of humanity as migrant is also quite potent! Thanks for sharing this music and video.

    Has the girl/woman considered being drafted as a running mate for any one of the clueless (NOT, Ron Paul !) presidential candidates. Chris, I think you’re on the hook now for vouching for her credentials ! Ah, the crosses we must bear as we contend with gravity !

  8. If someone would accept my vouching I sure as hell would vouch up a storm.

    But, alas, most people don’t want me to vote for them much less accept things from me.
