Multiple Enthusiasms

Infinite jest. Excellent fancy. Flashes of merriment.

How the World Will End

When I first started the new blog, I meant Imagery to be not just pictures but videos as well, and not just videos like my cousin playing his guitar. I’ve gotten sidetracked lately, admittedly; I have lots of pictures to post, but my first and greatest priority for the past two months was revising The Prodigal Hour.

Now that I’m done, though, and now that I’m even in the process of submitting for representation, I can do more of what I originally intended.

Including videos like this:

This is “How the World Will End,” from my debut collection Entrekin, and honestly, it’s much how I envisioned it in my head.

So now you get to see it.

Hopefully, this will reduce the ambiguity Emily Veinglory complained of in her review of the freeview. I generally tried to be as explicit as I could without becoming actually graphic, but I was trying to capture something simple: if the world were to end right now, if the news were interrupted to report Iran had launched a nuclear attack on the US and there really was no hope for survival, well, I’d want to spend my remaining time makin’ love.

Anyway, that’s the story and its Imagery; as this is the first one, I’m cross-posting it to both blogs. Mostly to announce it.

I have plans for more, I think. But this, as well as the usual pictures, is what to expect.

Hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed making it.

(edit: unfortunately, I was informed that one of the images I had used was actually the work of an artist who hadn’t licensed his work under Creative Commons, which was the impression I had been working with. While I sort the issue out, I’m pulling the link and the video itself. I’ll repost if I can.



  1. A dark but interesting video.

  2. @Leafless: That’s about what I was going for! With some sexy thrown in for good measure. So thanks, I think.

  3. I like how you turned something so unfathomable into sexiness. Makes it seem beautiful in a way.

    Crazy to imagine what that would feel like, making love while the world ends. Come to think of it, I don’t think there’s anything else I’d rather do, myself. Well, besides eating. If you’d shopped an image of a cheeseburger in there, then I’d be fully satisfied.

    (And I kid, but only somewhat.)

    Videos are fun to make, eh?

  4. They are. It’s unfortunate I had to pull it. But next one I do, I’ll know better!

  5. Drats, I missed it!

  6. @Chartroose: Sorry! But really, I should be focusing on writing, anyway, rather than making videos.
