Ho’s Magical Mystery Birthday Bash – The Video Megamix…

10 May

As a footnote to the wonderful couple of days we spent in Cornwall with Ho, celebrating his fiftieth year, I thought I’d share this with you.

When I was invited down to his shindig a few weeks ago, Ho asked me if I would take some photos and video footage to document the occasion, (Which of course I would have done anyway. All fuel for the blog) and then edit some of the highlights together, using some music of his choosing.

How could I possibly refuse, after such a glorious time was had by all?

So here it is, four and a half minutes of the best bits of our mystical trip – including a clip of Ho dedicating the stones – soundtracked by what I am reliably informed is a tune by German ambient pioneer, Roedelius.

I hope you enjoy it.

    Dale, many of these images reminded me of Led Zeppelin’s ZoSo album (# IV). It was cool, tripping down my own memory lane, watching and listening to your video. And, what a terrific way to celebrate Ho’s big 5-0!
