Who's to blame?
Well, we blame 'em all... the weather and rain, politicians and sparrows, cars and economists, boredom and talent ...but most of all we blame her... and Canada!!!
A short and partly experimental docu-voodle by moi and bk featuring the search for content and the answer to it all. View what was captured in Oslo, Norway - 2009.10.03 - and try to make sense out of it... yet, lucky are those who do not try... they're the lucky ones... always, and by all means. Just listen to teru's 'hey kid / billy goat stomp' and you'll might get the hint.
moi and b.k.: video 078 for - 5'14''

thank you sam! ...and you're always welcome back!!! this voodle was our entry for this years videomarathon on the subject of 'scapegoat' - well, what to do and who to blame? we blamed many... and we blamed canada... somebody's got to take the be blame!

we planned on a fictional documentary. there was a heavy snowfall in the mountains. our main-protagonist was stuck in the mountains because the car she was driving with had summer decks. the cold weather front, i'm sure, came from somewhere over the atlantic. we voodled around, got interested and disinterested... lots of sparrows that day... and rain... and nothing new in the news.

cheers, b.k./lomeg_rom
