I found the Antje video listed on her site and then I *had* to go searching for ellis (of course!)... our jaws dropped when we saw the Black Top Train video. We wondered where that went to...

This is my first post on this board. I posted occassionally on the previous board. I am mostly a "lurker" though...

Is anyone going to see Antje on the 12th at the Tin Angel? I may take a small road trip for that...

Hope everyone is well!

Shari

This is kind of fun!

Here is a link to a student video project. She decided to make a music video of The World Ain't Slowing down....

I like her closing thoughts....

How sweet! The student's video is definitely better than seeing Jim Carrey with flies stuck all over his face. :lol:

Low speed wifi connection will keep me from truly enjoying these right now but I have the jist...how very very cool these homespun videos are and will be back to comment in depth once I can view entirely.

Shari, thanks again and welcome to the new place. Hope you'll stick around. Talk about an impact filled first post. Holy cow is right. :wink:

Antje on the 12th at the Tin Angel? ...a quote by shari above

Shari, it's now official...I just ordered my tix to see Antje at Tin Angel, so the answer to your ? is : ya mo be there :D

Just a reminder - Reserved tables for dinner downstairs before the show is best chance to have reserved table upstairs for the show. Let us know if you're going and we'll be sure to say hello.

Antje performs at the Philadelphia Folk Fest - August 19

Also on the bill that weekend - Jackson Browne :shock:

Oh boy, this is exciting :P Ellis is so handsome. I'll have to put one of the videos on my Myspace page. But how will I pick?
I tried really hard to pause Blacktop Train to read the signs but it was impossible. The highway looks very New England.

Paddy,

Not sure yet, but it's looking good for the 12th. Thanks for the heads up on the xpn bit. I'll let you know when I am official.

I always have dinner at Serrano before a show...

I will figure out a secret way for you to recognize me. :-)

I just got a chance to look at these videos; "River" made me really sad; the song always makes me sad anyway, but I thought the video was really well done. What a loss of talent. Very, very sad.

Lives lost because of drug use is always sad....but what a terrific song and I thought the video was really well done too.....especially with the little scenes from River's movies interspersed throughout....

I can remember putting "River" on repeat in my car and listening to it over and over again....and doing the Patty G harmony really really loud. :)

Thank you so much for finding this video! Ellis told me it wasn't going to happen - so I'm elated! What a fantastic find!

I'm curious......was this the version of the video Ellis was not thrilled with and therefore decided to can?

So, this is something of a bootleg video, right? :wink:

Ellis Paul Black Top Train video

Postby folkster » Sat Aug 05, 2006 8:46 am

Hey guys, I'm the one who shot and edited this video. I'm glad you're liking it. Decided to post it on YouTube when I saw how much Antje's video (which I also did) was getting play.

Thanks for the positive comments. I hope Ellis wasn't too dissapointed by it...I'm gathering by your comments there were some reservations - but they can't all be perfect. We had a limited budget to work with...
