Everything in dis vid hits the right note from authentic looking styling, colouring, pathos, down to the the wee girls acting.and the careworn lines in the 'father' face Its good mate!
That telegram dope is a real smart touch ov visual dialogue. I can remember wen I woz a kid, my Mom getting a telegram one Christmas jus' like that. I knew without my mother sayin' that mi grandmother had jus' died
Nah it weren't no physic connection or telepathy We might have been young, but we woz poor so we well knew the difference between a telegram n' a money order It goes without sayin' telegrams only brought bad news
I think I know where this post came from.

...Might just be robodrug's best post yet.
robodrug rules, but the vid is crap. Xtina looks like rotten banana and Floria is a cliche at her best. Actually it's such a 'Sigismondi-esque' cliche she has finally used it in the circus. No, it's not her 'style of editing', she shouldn't have repeated it since Manson era.
I actually posted about this back in Rocktober. 30frames.blogspot.com
robodrug is clapton
A good comparison for this is Natalie Merchant "Kind and Generous", dir. Seliger/Woodward.. A lovely photographic treatment they gave her (ref).
RHCP "Soul to Squeeze" is another good circus vid, since we're on the topic.
The Clapton reference is en.wikipedia.org.
There was a Tubes video with a circus way back in the 80s.
Yes 30f ships that pass in the nite or surfers dat pass on the web but Strewth mate I can't see wot ur banging on bout on ur blog -
"To my eyes, the period circus was handled much better by Bryan Barber in Outkast's "Whole World" clip"
Period circus I don't quite think an American flag backdropped at every given opportunity, zoom in face pans ov a few carney folk, a fire eater givin it couple a gobfulls ov flame, Three shots ov an audience consisting ov less than half a dozen over scrubbed mush's in brand new threads wiv two dim landscapes of a computerised generated audience a nod or two to a bit ov Carnival graphics oh yea n a full body shot ov sum geezer stroking a toothless tiger - is quite the detail I noted in the tina dope
Speaking ov detail All I saw woz a bunch ov personalities I might as well have been watching bleedin Charlton Heston as Ben Hur, or dimple chin Douglas in Spartacus, n' hardly goddam Gladiator woz they
Whole World is as bout as near to Period circus as Puffy Combs claiming hes real by walkin' roun' wiv a DeLorean stuck halfway up 'is arse clinkin' a bottle ov Kruger tellin u e' down in the hood n there fe 'is blud
PS none ov mi kids have fell out ov the window yet
I bow before robo's superior rhetorical skill set.
PS - you left a "they" in there. Shouldn't it be "dey"?
Quite correct 30f, but since it were Hollywood folK I woz describing, Think I'll leave it unedited
if you saw this twaddle in a hollywood film you would puke. Why would it be good here?
Hmmmm Yes clearly summit u'd no-ho-ho all about ain't it David Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence
bowie: cause when you're in the privacy of your home no one can watch you try to choke back the tears.
