Londoner Stefan Szczelkun proposed a Philosopher's Union back in the mid to late 1980s to John Berndt. John passed the idea along to me. Since this was roughly contemporaneous w/ the invention & short life of the PXL-2000 'toy' camcorder, I instigated a series of movies made using this camera by myself & whomever else of single c/u shots of mouths talking about their philosophies - all in the spirit of "KEEP THINKING LIVE". Liz Downing's was the 15th one I made of a projected 50,000 - 72 have been made to date. Shot in early 1988 - w/ some effects & titling post-production added shortly thereafter. Since the PXL used audio cassettes as its video cassettes, Iimited most of the Mouthpieces to one side of a tape - wch at PXL speed amounted to roughly 5:50 per person. Liz was the singer in a band called "Lambs Eat Ivy". A complete transcription of what she's saying/singing can be had in the "Reactionary Muddle America" section of my bk entitled "footnotes". - April 2009EV notes from tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE
