Weekend Video - Kutiman's YouTube mix




One of the felicitous results of my plea for more comments was the opportunity to visit so many of your blogs. So many in fact that I must apologize that I lost track of which blog I went to and saw this amazing edit of various YouTube music performances re-edited into one new and cohesive song. (I'll try to backtrack and figure it out.) However, the editor of this piece is "Kutiman" and all I can tell you is that he is 27 and from Israel. Shalom!

You should also take a spin at www.inbflat.net Strikes me as a novel form of collaboration and listener participation.

Here's the original video of this kind that I saw by Kurtiman:

I don't know which came first, but they're each brilliant in their own way.

Hi Danzinger,

We must all be a little bit psychic -- I found a great photography book buried in my boyfriends bookshelf and decided to tell you about it. While you just happen to want more comments...

It's a book he picked up in Poland in the late 90's. The photography is from the 1970's -- beautiful women in nature. The photos are timeless, and if you get a chance to look at the work of Taras Kuscynskyj, I suspect you will enjoy it very much.

Saw the post about comments and I can relate from two angles. Angle #1 is that I have multiple blogs and rarely get comments, but then I'll run into folks who tell me they love the blog(s) and have been reading for some time. They don't understand the value of feedback to motivate the writer.

Angle #2 is that I spend hundreds of volunteer hours every year taking and distributing free photos to several hundred athletes and coaches at a local college. Like the blog readers, very few take the time to write with feedback or thanks. When I bump into these people, they let me know how appreciative they are of my effort, but far less than 5% every realize the need to say thank you without relying on a chance meeting. It's the world we live in. People so often are appreciative of another's efforts, but rarely find/take the time to say thank you.

So here's my belated thank you which should have come without any prompting on your part. I have left a few comments in the past and this blog link is included on my main blog's "Blogs I Like List". I've even referenced posts made here, but admittedly the theme is often "can you believe how much this photo costs at auction". Your blog is one of my favorites and unfortunately I often have to catch up on 1-2 weeks at a time, usually late at night when I can't sleep. I never think about commenting--partially because I tend to leave long comments (the limits of Twitter would drive me nuts so I've avoided it). I also tend to want to stay out of the way of the "smarter readers" who are commenting.

As a blogger, I should realize that even long, windy comments from those closer to the 50th percentile are welcomed and appreciated. You do a great job and I've learned a lot from your blog so keep up the great work.

Frank from down in Jackson, MS.

I love videos that combine different sounds, different people. You might be interested in Playing for Change's newest video, http://www.playingforchange.com/episodes/8/War_No_More_Trouble

The organization has a beautiful mission. And music is always an uplifting thing.
