It's a long story, but way back in 2016 I went to Toronto Comic Con with my buddy Justin to shoot some footage for a music video.
"Geeks in Love" was one of the singles off my geek music record "Borken Telephone" and I was lucky enough to get The Doubleclicks to join me for the track! I wanted to do this song justice!
The footage was great, but life got busy. We shot 3 other music videos in a single day the same week, but I just couldn't find the time or energy to figure out how to edit my very silly and spur-of-the-moment video ideas into a proper video.
So I moved the footage onto a hard drive, and after 4 international moves in 5 years, I lost track of it entirely.
Until last week.
I recently moved (again) and found the hard drive (and the footage) while I was unpacking.
Watching the raw capture made me realize how much I MISS conventions. This pandemic has been hard. Really hard. I miss my friends. I miss the geek community. I miss the low murmur of 10,000 nerds in a big room.
So I decided to finally edit the footage together into a video. It's cut together rough, and it's corny as heck, and the pandemic has left me a little more jaded and cynical than the very earnest guy who appeared in this video. But I needed a little corny. I needed to remember there will be good things to go back to. Eventually, when it's safe.
And I needed to remember the amazing community of people we're sacrificing to protect until it's safe to gather again.
So here's me saying I love you all, I miss you, and I'll see you on the other side of this!
