    This is the first time I have animated and voiced these two since the year 2001. I really hope you will enjoy this, and encourage me to continue with your likes and subscribes!

    Text of Joe's "Outro" at video end:

    Hello, this is Joe Sparks.

    For most of my life, I’ve been told coffee was bad for me. I never believed it. Not for a minute! Turns out I was right, and we now know coffee is one of the healthiest things you can drink. It is rich in antioxidants. It is delicious. It makes everything taste better. It makes friends more friendly. You should have some coffee with friends every day!

    I started drinking coffee when I was 4 years old. My next-door neighbor made it for me, and we would sit on her front lawn in lawn chairs and sip coffee. I loved it. I also loved coffee candy and coffee ice cream as a kid.

    I encourage you to give your children coffee as early as possible and as much as they can drink. And maybe, just maybe, your kids might turn out like this:

    Back when I was working on Total Distortion, I used to drink 3 pots of coffee a day. These days I enjoy 5 to 15 cups of coffee made with my Senseo coffee maker. Oh yes, that’s good. Mmm hmmm.

    I hope you enjoyed “Coffee with Friends” featuring Radiskull and Devil Doll. This is the first time I wrote, performed, and animated these two together since the year 2001. Exactly 17 years ago.

    Did you catch those mugs held by the Sun and the Moon at the end of the song? I had to do something to commemorate the return of Radiskull and Devil Doll, so I designed a “Coffee with Friends” mug, and also a cloudy mug, just for fun. You can use my zazzle store link to find them, link in the description of this video.

    But where’s Episode 9 you say? I’m taking this very seriously. I have spent the past year learning my tools and getting back into daily self-directed creativity. It has been many years since I did this kind of character animation. When I left Google and began to be an independent creator again, I thought I would just hit the ground running! Ha ha ha. I discovered that I had a lot more to learn and relearn that I thought. I’m finding the right combination of techniques and tools to do the best job I can on Episode 9.

    Some parts I create with Adobe Animate CC (formally known as Flash). I export layers of high-resolution vector animation as alpha-channel video, and bring it in into Adobe After Effects. After Effects has a beautiful 3D camera system. I’ve been animating the camera to the beat of the music and it brings the scenes to life in a unique way.

    In the coming days I will share some of the things I’ve discovered while working alone on these new music videos.

    I hope you will subscribe to my YouTube channel and also visit the all-new JoeSparks.com. I’m writing articles about my production process there.

    Thanks again for watching, sharing, subscribing, and leaving comments. Thank you for being here. With you in the audience I will be able make more music videos.

    I want to create musical art that stands the test of time.

    Thanks again!
