Connecting with Simon Ensor, Always Connect

I have been messing about with a longer form zeega based upon a translation of Simon Ensor’s prose poem and post here. It was a very difficult job trying to do it’s sweet structure justice. I had originally laid down Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip “Thou Shalt always Kill” up until the last frame when it just wasn’t right.  Great strong song, but not rich enough to catch the symphonic feel of Simon’s post.  I chose John Adams’ “Short Ride in a Fast Machine” with that furious driven wooden block, pistons beating like a heart.  It fit perfectly to my heart.

I hope you like it.

  1. The Zeega magic is amazing!!! So many great moments in here. I esp. like “contained and connected.” Going to watch this a couple more times before heading off to bed. Hoping for zeegastic dreams! Thanks to both of you for this! 🙂

    1. Gotta say that I am very grateful you came here. It gives me the opportunity to tell you how happy I am to have a fellow inoreader here. And I really want to get together to learn more with you about inoreader. I would love to do a Hangout on Air and have you take over the screen and show us what you are doing there. I think inoreader is what Google Reader might have grown up to be if it’s parents (Google) had fed, nurtured, and taught her properly. Thanks for coming. I would be happy to reciprocate with a Zeega Hangout on Air. Or just talk.

  2. I am SO HAPPY with Inoreader; it is indeed everything I missed from Google Reader and more. I’m not so much of a hangout person (my video cam is very iffy, partly because of my ancient monitor ha ha), but I’m trying to document how I use Inoreader in various places, incl. here:

    I found out about it literally just a few days before start of school when I already had stuff set up, so next semester I’ll be retooling a bunch of assignments to take more advantage of what Inoreader can do, and I’m going to try to get my students using it also, just so they can see how I am experiencing the class as well as learning about the fabulousness of having a feed reader.
    Have you been using it since Google Reader went away? I know there are all kinds of features in Inoreader I haven’t even had time to play with yet, like all the social stuff. I wish I had found it at beginning of summer, but better late than never. It has made this semester so much more engaging for me since I can watch the blogs go by very happily, with everything going zip zip zip into its own folder (label) so that I can review them at my leisure. Sooooo nice. And I love being able to share other students’ work as sample assignments. I figure many students really loathe reading instructions, but they like looking at what other students are doing and just figuring it out that way! 🙂
