I’ve been playing with the process of songwriting over the pst few years... trying to push myself into less comfortable areas of my “creative” terrain. I started this song by recording the rhythm guitar and then the guitar break... I wrote (hmmm... “wrote”) the lyrics in a sort of free-form sing-song along to the music. I found myself singing in a different voice... anyone who knows me - knows that - I often speak in different voices... well different accents anyway... but this isn’t really like that...

I found this wonderful piece of film by Georges Méliès, from “Le papillon fantastique” (1909) - It is in the public domain so I have taken the liberty of presenting here. It fits... and doesn’t - but I really enjoy the juxtaposition. I did not want to cut up or otherwise change his piece... (I’m not sure when the colour was added) - please enjoy...

By the way! The Bob Wiseman concert in Orillia (with Steve Caston opening!) takes place on January 20/2012
This is sure to be an amazing show... Bob will be performing his multi-media one-man play, the critically aclaimed “Actionable”
