Here's a video of a song I wrote called 'One of these Days'.

http://www.twitvid.com/TFQJZ

The video is...er... 'experimental' and I managed to mess up the last verse (which I suppose is only fitting for a song about how useless I am).

Anyway - I hope you like it.

If you're interested, the lyrics are:

One of these days
I'll do something great,
And my name will be up in lights,
In the meantime I guess I'll just do stuff that's 'alright'.

I can't tell you I'm gonna try.
I might be lazy, but I'm quite content to get by.

Sometimes I wonder 'why do I bother?'
Then I remember that I don't...
Sometimes I wonder 'why do I bother?'
Then I remember that I don't...

One of these days
I'll write a song
To make the world sit up and listen,
In the meantime they'll just have to make do with this one.

I can't tell you I'm gonna try.
I've got ambitions, but I'm quite content to get by.

Sometimes I wonder 'why do I bother?'
Then I remember that I don't...
Sometimes I wonder 'why do I bother?'
Then I remember that I don't...

One of these days
I'll finish my book.
It'll be a number one best seller,
Until then it'll just stay saved on my computer.

I can't tell you I'm gonna try.
I might be lazy, but I'm quite content to get by.

Sometimes I wonder 'why do I bother?'
Then I remember that I don't...
Sometimes I wonder 'why do I bother?'
Then I remember that I don't...

Hmmm... Weird. It works for me...

http://bit.ly/tSdtSP Does that look any better?

Nope.... must have something to do with you being logged into your account. The link takes me to 'Popular Videos', a pretty random assortment......

Argh! Seems that it only works on iPhone. Try this link:

The video in question is about fifth on the list - exactly three minutes long and has a generic 'watch my video' caption.

Technology, eh?

Still no..... clicking on the fifth one down -thumbnail or link - takes me right back to the same 'Popular Videos' page - the others work fine. Is there a 'public' or 'private' option like You Tube? I don't know anything about Twitter.....

Well that's a nuisance. I'll upload it somewhere else later. Thanks for letting me know.

Right - this is the LAST attempt. If this fails, I'm going to smash my ukulele, sell my computer and set fire to the Internet.

I get to the right page - but they aren't videos for me. Just a still capture. They must be using some proprietary video format instead of Flash or one of the common file formats.

The red background is killing me - I can't read anything on the page!

It's a great tune and I love the tone of the lyrics..... nice melody and the harmony vox work well..... nicely done, sir.....

Thanks. And thank goodness it's finally working.

I have no idea what Twitvid have done. They've recently had a revamp and now the site is awful. Ugh. I guess I might have to bite the bullet and start a YouTube account soon.
