This video is made to take viewers into the recording of our band’s album Neener 2. Jessica and I discuss instruments, styles and process as the movie intersperses interview sessions with musical clips from the album over footage of sights around Cleveland from industrial blocks to rail bridges to police lights to Lake Erie.
This video is only a little over a minute but it includes Jessica at Lakewood Park, a bird bathing in a puddle on the road, a finch evading the rain on the window’s edge, and then parakeets Belle, Sparty and Dodger–including slow motion flying.
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.
We cap off season 4 with a podcast that starts with Jessica and me, along with ducks, in a couple parks in Columbus; then we check in on parakeets Belle and Sparty as they perch on their repurposed CD rack and tweet; as the video moves on we see Jessica walking around Central Park with Les, and then we see some denizens of New York either ignoring the camera–or reacting to it. Also stars a messy dog and some bold pigeons.

After our wedding, Jessica had our honeymoon in Maui–and in San Franicso for a day. We checked into our hotel downtown, then ventured west into the city where we first met. That day we took the N Judah under the peaks and visited Sharon Meadow and Golden Gate Park, along with old Haight Street, and Jessica explained some artistic ideas.
The video opens with a brief discussion of geese and Ava the parakeet. Then a trip from Lakewood through a wintry Cleveland continues: from a lady looking for a party in Gordon Square to Jessica walking in the snow in Rocky River to a freezing festival on Columbus Street to a drive through snowed-out neighborhoods on the east side.
