Just found a video for the song. The tone of the video isn't what I expected.

I preferred his song: chillout - custom written for one of his correspondents. The link shows how it was put together.

If you miss The Show like I do, Ze Frank also has been doing a series of videos for Time which come out way too slowly.

I sort of like this kind of music thing (and I like "Love Letter to Condi": The way your lips quiver / when you're pissed gives me shivers) but there was something about the push-and-pull of direct-address video that made the crowdsourcing and interactivity seem like a conversation with a person who had an individual voice, rather than a kind of overproduced group-vibe.

Thanks for the link to "Love Letter To Condi" Valet. Ze is great musician too. "Scared" is another gem.

So we're just going to link to everything Ze Frank does, now?

...because I am just fine with that.

Well if you're fine, I'm fine. Are you fine? You seem fine. I'm certainly feeling fine.

Because he also makes these weird little webtoys: one for music, a kind of swirly generator, and my favorite, the kaleidoscope maker. The music toy doesn't have labels for the different sounds you can use, and the swirlier (swirlizer? Swurlitzer?) doesn't really let you control it much, but for some reason I can play with the kaleidoscope majigger for sort of ever.

Ze would also like to show you an optical illusion.
