I wish I could vid...!

I was listening to a song last night, and was struck by how bleakly perfect it would be for Ennis Del Mar ("Brokeback Mountain"). It's "Top of the World" by the Dixie Chicks.

Some of the lyrics don't suit, but most do. Particularly these:

***
I wished I could have stood where you would have been proud
But that won't happen now
That won't happen now

There's a whole lot of singing that's never gonna be heard
Disappearing everyday without so much as a word
***

and

***
I wished I'd a known you
Wished I'd a shown you
All of the things I
was on the inside
***



TOP OF THE WORLD

I wished I was smarter
I wished I was stronger
I wished I loved jesus
The way my wife does
I wish it had been easier
Instead of any longer
I wished I could have stood where you would have been proud
But that won’t happen now
That won’t happen now

There’s a whole lot of singing that’s never gonna be heard
Disappearing everyday without so much as a word somehow
Think I broke the wings off that little song bird
She’s never gonna fly to the top of the world right now
Top of the world

I don’t have to answer
any of these questions
Don’t have no God to
teach me no lessons
I come home in the evening
Sit in my chair
One night they called me for supper
But I never got up
I stayed right there
in my chair

There’s a whole lot of singing that’s never gonna be heard
Disappearing everyday without so much as a word somehow
Think I broke the wings off that little song bird
She’s never gonna fly to the top of the world right now
Top of the world

I wished I’d a known you
Wished I’d a shown you
All of the things I
was on the inside
I’d pretend to be sleeping
When you come in in the morning
To whisper good-bye
Go to work in the rain
I don’t know why
Don’t know why

’cause everone’s singing
We just wanna be heard
Disappearing everyday without so much as a word somehow
Wanna grab a hold of that little song bird
Take her for a ride to the top of the world right now

To the top of the world
To the top of the world
To the top of the world
To the top of the world
To the top of the world
To the top of the world
To the top of the world
To the top of the world

You know, that how my vidding obsession started ;) I have to warn you, vidding eats time like mad *G* But it's also great fun.
>>>I have to warn you, vidding eats time like mad

LOL, yes, that's what I'm worried about. But I have tons of stories to write and zines to do and, and, all sorts of other stuff. Like learning a couple of new computer programs... So i'll just have to resist the temptation of taking up a new time-consuming hobby.

I did try vidding once, in the 80s, on two betamax VCRs, and the experience drove me so crazy I've never tried it again. I understand that it's *much* simpler now.
Simpler, yes. But since you can do much more on the computer today than you could with video recorders, you'll also spend hours of fine-tuning each frame! And since people make wonderful, professional vids today, you've to keep up with the great fannish quality, which means spending another lot of hours on fine-tuning the transitions, the meaning, the fitting to the lyrics...anything :)

Ah well *chuckles* Love it anyway.
Perfect, indeed!
