k, so i made a stupid quick video about the news stories about Trump bowing in Saudi Arabia and the big arms deal. I remembered some old song about “bow down before the one you serve”, found vocals-only, next thing I know I translated it to MIDI, had it played back in “Kirby’s Return to Dreamland” soundfont, and did a sort of Monty Python-esque scene breakup. Take it seriously if you like but I just had a silly idea and wanted to see if I could do it ’cause I never did something quite like it before (and won’t have to again, but at least I know a process I can follow now that I’ve done it once). So enjoy, be puzzled, get mad, whatever Facebook thinks you’ll probably do which is probably the only reason their algorithm will show this to you at all; they expect an emotional response of some kind, even if it’s, “That’s stupid!” :)
