I had toyed with a sort of regular video dispatch format along these lines a long time ago, but was strongly discouraged from doing so by John himself, convinced that it would be a better idea to get the word out when the project (I thought he was talking about the doc, but he could have meant his album) was closer to completion.

I wonder who did this video, and if these videos indicate that his project is closer to completion than he's letting on.

Apparently, that video is "private".

Don't think I've seen that message before on YouTube....

It's still private, but keep an eye on this account in case anything changes.

The voice of the videographer sounded like Steve the Producer. Was it?

Okay, so the video is listed again, "posted x hours ago", and when you click on it, it says "taken off by user". Again.
What the hell?

I just got a PM on youtube from him. He put it up before checking with John, thinking no one would notice (ha!). It sounds like the project is still going forward, and will continue to be uploaded at a weekly pace once it's actually ready. So, let's all take a deep breath, exercise our patience, and be happy we know a special treat is coming our way ... eventually.

Isn't that the motto of the Long Winters fan?

so true.

for the inevitable t-shirt I'm torn between Sour's complete quote, and one that just says '...eventually'

"The Long Winters... [front]
... eventually." [back]

This could indeed be the official Treehouse slogan-shirt!

I think those shirts are going to be given out with the membership to that Super-Awesome-Totally-1337 new Treehouse with exclusive downloads for long time regulars John said was coming...

I'm all for a "I Don't Feel Like Playing the Tambourine to That, So Much" tee-shirt.

I'm starting to wonder if this "album in progress" isn't just John attempting to induce Stockholm Syndrome in his followers...

That typewriter has to be used as percussion somewhere.

That "snap" is so evocative....

I have to ask the stupid question - what makes a poem a poem and what makes lyrics... lyrics?
