Typical

Not new. Still awesome.



The first time I watched it, I was just amazed at video. The second time I watched it, I found myself being drawn to that inner place of worship and meditation. Does anyone else see it as deeply spiritual?

  1. Either your page has an error in it (I get 2 error messages each time I try to open it: one says something about an error contained on this page and another about a plugin not initializing ever since your latest post) or you are just becoming too complicated. If I wanted complicated I would upgrade to Vista!

  2. Randall, try updating your Flash player.

  3. that was kind of my point Jon: I don’t want to have to update/upgrade my pc to view your blog. It’s a link to YouTube that I can watch on their site no problem. btw, when I came by today I didn’t get the error messages and I haven’t done any updates (although we did have some pushed upgrades from IT yesterday that I doubt included Flash) so it appears to be fixed.

  4. I didn’t do anything special, so I blame YouTube.

  5. well I blame youtoo, I mean youtube too 😉

  6. Trying… to avoid… snarky comment.
    So Randall, did you appreciate the video after all that?

  7. Hehe, why would you avoid snarky when I was trying to be snarky? ;). Yes, after all that I guess I should have said that I did get a kick out of the video. He reminds me, for some odd reason, of Adam Ant! Not the music, but the performer.
    Sooooo, got yer iPhone yet?

  8. That was really cool. I’ll have to watch it again with my kids. I also got an error the first time, but clicked again and it worked. Thanks for the link!

  9. Katherine, here are a couple of things that you might share with your kids:
    – Look up the lyrics.
    – Figure out how the video was made.

  10. Jon,
    I blogged on this back in April… http://roydonkin.blogspot.com/2007/04/break-spell-of-typical.html
    I think it is good church music.

  11. “Jon, you’re behind the times.” Go ahead, Roy, say it. 😉
    I am not an impulsive buyer, but today, I had a sudden urge to buy the video so that I could enjoy it at full screen.
    Randall: It also suddenly occurred to me that there is a similarity between Adam Ant and Buckaroo Banzai.
