All in camera editing- MESMERIZING
It's a short bit based on a portion of the book "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn", by Mark Twain. My apologies to Mr. Twain, but I think we got an A out of it.
As wikipedia summarizes our plot:
After the four fugitives flee farther south on their raft, the king "captures" Jim and sells his interest in any reward while Huck is away in a nearby town. Outraged by this betrayal, Huck finally rejects the advice of his "conscience," which continues to tell him that by helping Jim escape to freedom, he is stealing Miss Watson's property. Telling himself "All right, then, I'll go to hell!", Huck resolves to free Jim.
Arriving at the home where Jim is being held, Huck discovers, improbably, that the king has forty dollars sold his supposed interest in the slave Jim to Silas Phelps, Tom Sawyer's uncle. In a parallel to the con men's earlier scheme with the Wilks family, Silas's wife, Aunt Sally, mistakes Huck for Tom himself, and Huck plays along, hoping to find a way to free Jim. Shortly thereafter, Tom himself arrives for a visit, and agrees to join Huck's scheme, pretending to be his own half-brother, Sid Sawyer.
Either out of a desire to revenge himself on the grifters or out of charity for the townspeople, Jim reveals the secret of the Royal Nonesuch before the two rogues are able to set their confidence game into motion. That night, Tom and Huck see the duke and the king, who have been captured by the townspeople, tarred and feathered, being run out of town on a rail.
Rather than simply sneaking Jim out of the shed where he is being held, Tom develops an elaborate plan to free him, involving secret messages, hidden tunnels, a rope ladder sent in Jim's food, and other elements from romantic novels, including a note to the Phelps warning them of an Indian tribe stealing their runaway slave. Huck and Jim go along with the plan, but Tom is shot in the leg during the resulting chase. Rather than complete his escape, Jim insists that Huck return to town and find a doctor to treat Tom. This is the first time that Jim demands something from a white person; Huck rationalizes this by saying "I knowed he was white on the inside...so it was all right now." Jim and Tom are then captured and brought back by the doctor.

The heart is an organ with feeling (according to a cardiologist I know)
This blood pump has been the subject of many poems and songs over the years
A muscle it is with a mind of its own
(the white man who thinks with his head rather than his heart is crazy)
People call the artists crazy (they just release the caged heart)
“Groove is in the heart” sangre christo via Della Rosa coeur d’alene blood of a poet
Rhythmic contractions sent from a love machine larger than the size of your fist
Explore your heart in a boat; find a unique tunnel of love, atrium, and oxygenated ventricle vena cava
Take it out of the body and put legs on it (it won’t pass the drunk test)
Aorta a swinging door beating the rhythmic mythic flip-flop pitter pats the Venus cave
The heart is the creation of the world.
This note was written with one finger quickly while taking my own pulse.

Sarabeth's the best wedding/fun photographer that side of the Mississippi, and she'll still shoot film, even though she's got the coolest new digital this side of Nikon.
Dancing at the wedding after a little too much time in the desert sun.
Hey look, it's Eph & Mer in front of Fringe last June. Coincidence? Fate?
