found: characters

This video was created by echopanda for Joanna Newsom and uses her song, Peach Plum Pear, from her debut album. This combination of old homemade videos includes some excellent scenes and characters for writing character studies, short stories, poetry, and so on - however you are inspired.

I like Joanna Newsom's music. To be honest, I haven't found anyone else among my group of friends who likes her "Appalachian-meets-avant-garde take on folk music." If you hate the music, hit the mute button. The video is worth it even if you want to (as one friend said) poke your ears with a sharp instrument rather than listen to her voice. I like her and realize she's not for everyone. Give it a try, though, you might be surprised.
