This was great. So much visual info transmitted in dream-like fashion. :)

'Isn't it rich?
Are we a pair?
Me here at last on the ground,
You in mid-air.
Send in the clowns.
Isn't it bliss?
Don't you approve?
One who keeps tearing around,
One who can't move.
Where are the clowns?
Send in the clowns.

Just when I'd stopped opening doors,
Finally knowing the one that I wanted was yours,
Making my entrance again with my usual flair,
Sure of my lines,
No one is there.

Don't you love farce?
My fault I fear.
I thought that you'd want what I want.
Sorry, my dear.
But where are the clowns?
Quick, send in the clowns.
Don't bother, they're here.

Isn't it rich?
Isn't it queer,
Losing my timing this late
In my career?
And where are the clowns?
There ought to be clowns.
Well, maybe next year.'

The artists "crucible" Past, Present, and Future,
Reflected in the memorabilia of the stream of consciousness of their life's interests.
A great machine, sailing/space craft, wheel, mandala, of perception and opium,
And yet,
The hare that is the artist, stares,
Beyond the interplay of material shackles,
Towards a ??lust?? beyond perception and touch?
From which perfumes of recorded thought
Find their wellspring.

It's Spring time and this young man's Fancy is turning!
Toward the beyond of the here, there, and everywhere,
The reward to the empty vessel of artistic endeavir.

Enjoy! (Oh, what a beautiful morning, Oh, what a beautiful day...)

:mrgreen:

Personally, I couldn't wait to see what Bill's house looked liked! I enjoyed the contrast between what I traditionally think of as a serene and peaceful English countryside and all the memorabilia inhabiting the house.
Quite interesting. Thank you for the tour.
Perhaps some day you will treat us to a typical workday at the ranch video.

Thanks, Bill I really enjoyed the video and the music. It's nice to see a glimpse of your home studio where you make your art. I enjoyed the decorations and whimsy as well. Good to see that Ian, Les Paul, and Bettie Page are nearby for inspiration too!

Interesting stuff here, definitely worth a second and third viewing later. In a confession of my ineptitude of all things Bill, must confess though am not familiar w/the rabbit's relationship with things. Noticed him whaling away on the box set, and now here in this vid. Anyone care to enlighten someone habitually late to the show? Thanx

Can't speak directly as to why Bill has embraced the rabbit other than to note that rabbits are pronounced in the mythologies of many cultures over many thousands of years. I suspect many could appeal to Bill but perhaps the Buddhist stories may edge-out all others. Let's see if he has a more detailed and personal answer.
