Open For Business! (I hope this gives you a laugh.)

My friend and I live at opposite ends of the continent, yet we made this video together. Ah! What an age in which we live!

In a hopeful tribute to† what's yet to come we present an optimistic picture-packed-presentation† reminding† Americans of the greatness awaiting us !

1. So funny and entertaining throughout.

I loved the newsreel-old movie point of view.

3. Very clever, and entertaining.

My compliments. Y'all did a good job putting that together. Doesn't the Academy Awards have a short film/video category? Now I'm trying to figure out what the point of it is. I'm sure there's one there somewhere, but I haven't figured out yet what it is...

4. Thanks, Ron.

I guess the point is to have a laugh in the face of our less than desirable circumstances. Thanks for watching and commenting!

5. Good job!

That was entertaining and bordered a bit on Firesign Theater-style at times, (which is a compliment if you know about their work).

Good production and editing, as well.

Thanks!

6. Have you considered posting it on DU Lounge?

It deserves to be seen by more people,

11. I second that idea of posting it in the Lounge

More people will see it which means more people will have a laugh and an appreciation for your work.

I highly recommend this!

14. You both did a great job.

Your friendís narrating voice is perfect in every way. Pitch, tone, timing, and very pleasant.

A work of art is never fully appreciated in just one viewing. I do sincerely think this is art. You always get something more in each viewing.

16. Excellent!

My favorite bit was in Washington DC--'Home to our nation's leaders'--while showing the convicts going into their cells. Perfect!!

But lots of other goodies in there too.
