Little Iraq

Here’s my third post for Videoblogging Week 2007. This is a guerrilla music video I made with my friends Don Charles and Deb Gessner. Together they are D-Squared. I think they’re the best songwriters in Arizona. I think you should give them a listen.

So, Don and Deb went camping north of Phoenix for Don’s birthday, and instead of the tranquil beauty Don remembered from when he was a kid, they encountered people abusing the desert with ATVs and massive debris and all manner of guns. Don got mad, and then he got even. He wrote this tune.

I really like it. I hope you do, too.

Addendum: I have to license this differently because I don’t own the copyright to the music.

Update on July 3, 2007: At the request of Verdi during the recent critical review flash meeting, I have added a 640×480 version of the video – see the link under the video player above.
