A new video podcast from pacificpelican.us is here, after a months-long hiatus. It’s a little more than two minutes and features Jessica, me, the birds, and some Indians fans and more including us talking in a restaurant. The soundtrack is taken from Jessica and my new album, Neener 1. If you want more videos with our songs in it, check out the “Cactus Juice” podcast and the “Mountain Range” music video. For more videos, check the video tag on the djm cloud blog.

The Buzzards of Hinckley Reservation

The return of the North American turkey vulture (known locally as the buzzard) to Ohio is a spring ritual, celebrated in the area around Hinckley every year on March 15th.
We wanted to see the whole event (although we didn’t make the pancake breakfast in town, whose small country roads were jammed with bird enthusiasts). When we got to the buzzard roost site at the Cleveland Metroparks Hinckley Reservation, Jessica and I took some video of the returning birds on what seemed like the first day of spring.

Barack Obama with Bruce Springsteen in Cleveland

Jessica and I took some video at the Obama rally in downtown Cleveland on November 2, 2008. The video features some footage of the crowd, a song by Springsteen and excerpts of the speech by Obama.

UPDATE: The first year of his presidency was enough to make clear that Obama has been a disappointment.
