by Chorus-Line A1-QMS / March 28, 2005 10:23 AM PST

I just finished cinegraphically putting together the original song by Charlie Thunell and I posted here sometime ago.

Did you knock?
by Chorus-Line A1-QMS / March 28, 2005 10:11 PM PST

Ask and you shall recieve an answer. (Negative and Positive criticism).

Seek and you shall find the answers are not hidden.(google)

Knock and the door will be opened. Dont just stand and look but take a step and bang on the door harder. (Perserverance pays off or remain exiled for disorderly conduct.)

Eventually, someone will know you're there. (Cordial and Mean People differ in responses, while those silenced lives in fear).

Knocking on heaven's door can be a very disappointing intent for the underserving. The door usually has a sign that says, "DoS"

While Hell says, "Welcome to the Real World". A place where everyone (no exception) have lived and died for a moment or forever.

Those who are tired of the "Burning Pain" will eventually take a number and "Knock on heaven's door". ("Taking chances, it does not hurt", - Blaise Pascal)

...you're response was a joke of the title. And hence, friends I sent this link to has made no mention of denied access, if you are unable to for some reason -- My apology, nevertheless my response was a view in conjunction similar to Biblical quote and something I was taught of -- Knock and asked.

Again, apology for the mix-up.

The main content page of the movie clip is this url http://zed.cbc.ca/go?c=contentPage&CONTENT_ID=233720 in which you can click on the icon where it says... "WATCH" or click on the tab where it says, "Collaboration"

If you still can't access -- I have no idea.

Your criticism was very helpful...
by Chorus-Line A1-QMS / March 29, 2005 2:48 AM PST

...because it gives me an opportunty to improve myself. I reviewed my work many times, did not rush either, and yet there goes the error.

It's nice to be corrected in this manner. Thank you thank you...Indeed, no man is an island alone

Improved thyself
by Evie / March 29, 2005 8:11 AM PST

Yeah. Me think she not try enough hard too corecct speellings.

A perfectionist is rarely a perfectionist in only one related concept. Might want to work on improving yourself through consistency in expressing yourself then. One time = perfect English, next time = tortured attempt at broken English.

Here's a short fictional story behind the graphic image that I painted of the Featherhead Fairy in which I've already sold 1 blown up size and framed copies at $350.00 USA.

I am sure you will find quite a bit of grammar and spelling errors as you read the story if you care to indulge in your cri-ticking style.

Enjoy. Happy

I'm impressed!
by xerpor / March 28, 2005 11:47 PM PST

Very nicely done movie, CL. So this is how your imaginations works and makes your talent flow, a bit of a song?

BTW, the first link doesn't work but the second one does. At ZED I had to click on Veiw at the top to see the video.

I'm a bit envious now, how does one get a chance to sing with you?

Thank you once again...

In reply to: I'm impressed!

You've always been encouraging and polite since I've joined this forum that includes most here but limited to a few I find quite amusing and entertaining. Perhaps it is that, which attracts me the most.

As far as imagination, Albert Einstein himself was full of imagination. He even quoted, "Imagination is better than knowledge". He did not elaborately explained this quote for me to fully understand what he meant nevertheless, I'll agree to take the *imagination* and the *better* is left for interpretations.

Perhaps I can say that my imaginations are more vivid now than 20 some years ago. I suppose a lot of these are due to the challenges and experiences that come along as a passer-by.

Thank you for cordially explaining in details and notifying me that the first link didn't work. It helps to accomplish a clear sense of understanding. Speaking of which, it must be a hell of a job for tech support help desk people to deal with inquiries and other problems that aroused from customer's complaints.

Generally speaking and I hope you do not misunderstand my intent about my idea of "envy". There's only two of a kind that I can picture from this emotions. The negative envy is self destructing while the positive envy delivers good results. It's the kind of envy that motivates you to say, think, and ambitiously implement the intent, "If others can do it, why can't I?" which pretty much sum up what I've written, "Did you knock?", an additional thought I've added to the content page of the "Stop Movie" clip.

I'm a bit envious now, how does one get a chance to sing with you? Posted by: xerpor

Enthusiasm, I like that. I'd be more than glad to give you free online tutorials on "how to". Email me from the site and perhaps we can collaborate to work on a project. Happy


Thanks again.

Original song by WHO?
by Josh K / March 29, 2005 3:27 AM PST

Please tell me you know who wrote that song.

Collapse -
According to information gathered
by Chorus-Line A1-QMS / March 29, 2005 8:09 AM PST
In reply to: Original song by WHO?

both offline and online, it was Bob Dylan who wrote the song. It never occurred to me to ask Charlie since he knows more about Bob Dylan than me. I might do just that.

Prior to responding to your post, I again, did further search and to my satisfaction, it's still Bob Dylan.

Speculating from my end, the tone of your question, it appears you may know something I do not. In which case, if you do, can you provide me at least 3 or 4 references that indicate differently to satisfy my curiosity and make appropriate changes if necessary.


Thanks.

just one reference methinks
by jonah jones / March 29, 2005 10:43 AM PST

the way it was written, you made it seem that the song was charleys...

btw, this --> "Knocking on heaven's door" w(h)ere faith and friendship intertwine(d) but justice is(was) blind is a little confusing...

5. cl did change the wording
6. the only person "keeping this goin'" is you...

Number three of your pointers is taken out of context. Prior to that statement CL also mentioned the following:

"According to information gathered both offline and online, it was Bob Dylan who wrote the song. It never occurred to me to ask Charlie since he knows more about Bob Dylan than me. I might do just that.

Prior to responding to your post, I again, did further search and to my satisfaction, it's still Bob Dylan."

Did you comprehend that the first time you read it? I certainly did and I think most of those who have read it did too.

And that's the end from my end regarding this topic!

Have a good day.

What did I alter? I quoted CL accurately, before the matter was cleared up.

You didn't alter anything Josh! Sorry! May fault.

I'm sorry. I meant to say correction. My fault on that one! Busy at work and distracted is the only explanation I have.

Glad to see that you found it cleared up too though. jj didn't apparently.

and FYI, i know who wrote the song, and would never imply (even mmistakenly) that it was "someones song"....

For clarification...*original * word used in question...
by Chorus-Line A1-QMS / March 29, 2005 11:35 PM PST
...prompted by a rather vague question to which I responded somewhat puzzled myself as to the nature of the inquiry.

Original song posted here meant --- the experimental incomplete song posted here as at SE. Follow the link for the perusal of the inquiry minds. With this to say, following links does not indicate claimant to original song. Clearly those who responded, understood what was going on. Wink

http://reviews.cnet.com/5208-6130-0.html?forumID=50&threadID=28312&messageID=379742

http://reviews.cnet.com/5208-6130-0.html?forumID=50&threadID=28312&messageID=379758

In anycase, to further satisfy puzzled minds, appropriate credit to Bob Dylan as the songwriter of the song is indicated in the movie clip and my response to the inquiry mind from first link above.
