Change For a Dollar

While it's had 2 million views, that still leaves plenty more millions of people who haven't yet seen Change For a Dollar; possibly the best film short ever made? Or the best short film ever made, whichever. Either way, it might be the best 606 seconds you'll spend today.

On the subject of dollars, Visible's songs are available for a dollar (that doesn't buy all of them - they're a dollar each).

Due to a current lack of popular demand, there's unlikely to be a song on today's Petri Dish (the boss has spoken). He never said anything though, about not putting up a song anywhere else, so I'm going to spoil myself with one of my very favorite Visible songs:

Visible sings: God in Country by Les Visible♫ Prevail ♫
'Prevail' is track no. 6 of 11 on Visible's 2001 album 'God in Country'
Lyrics (pops up)

God in Country by Les Visible

Isn't that beautiful? Lordy, this blog post is simply bursting with loveliness!

Don't forget, if you would like to post anything here on Siamese Mirrors, drop Vis an email - and if he's not too busy writing his new book, planting his cantaloupe or crying into his beer then he'll "authorise" you. Good morning!

Contributors Sought...

Welcome to the revamped Siamese Mirrors...

Visible's readers (which means you!) are invited to write your own blog posts here, on this site. All you need to do is drop Vis a mail telling him that you'd like to be a contributor and you'll then get the necessary invite. If you don't know Vis' email address, then mail me instead via this page.

Your posts can be about anything - provided they are reasonably "on-topic" (whatever that is); but in the first instance, we're hoping that you might write a few lines about Neil Rogers; your favorite "Neil" poem or characteristic, or anything else about the man which amused, inspired or informed you. A list of his poems will be available, on request, for this purpose.

So, Erin and The Gardner, Est, Niijii, Pierre, Nina (hello!?), Denny (hi-hi!), all the Daves, Jen, Mouser, Rob in WI (hi!) and the thousands of other Vis readers out there - whose names would fill this page, but which I'm struggling to recall anyway - please do make contact with Vis or myself. Our operators are waiting to take your call.

Now I got writer's block (which is why Visible writes and I just lurk). For now, have a feel good video, and feel good.
