Hello. I pieced this together late at night. I set old film clips to a poem, which I wrote and recorded myself reading.

Tomorrow or another day soon, I will piece together video for the remaining portion of the audio (available in full at soundclick.com/nerBeater), the latter of which is an improvised monologue discussion about schizophrenia. This project is about me sharing what is my experience of schizophrenia, which has taken me on arduous paths for understanding my psyche and the nature of human minds in general. I hope someone finds value in this expression. This film is serious in scope and meant to be taken earnestly although in it I am being an honest artist with my recovery over my psychological illness and have come to accept the occasional laugh. Hopefully, you'll see the struggle I have faced in my opting for sanity and the silliness I must defend myself with.

I love youtube, and I hope to become good friends with those of you who appreciate this work and play and future work and play I contribute to youtube. (My friend with a camera will be helping me to film myself, as we and our friends make skits, vlogs, and wacky art.) Undoubtedly, I will appreciate your videos if you can appreciate mine. Mine are not meant for "the most general public", but mainly those willing and desiring to interact with the art, ideas, suffering, and liberation of the cute, valiant, and extremely raw human self that offers fields of experience into and from which I intend fully to dive and to spelunk.

All the clips in my film are either photographs of myself or computer graphics drawn by myself, and the majority of clips are taken from the following three Creative Commons licenced films available at www.archive.org. I fully recommend to all youtubers to mine Creative Commons licenced material for all freedom is worth. It's much favourable to breaking the law OR boring people with the popular, too common songs or scenes we've all heard. There's a lot of ART SET FREE in this world. Look for it...
