S&L Video World Premiere

By -

After seeing my Prophecies of Alan Watts video recently, a Sloper emailed me to suggest that my “angelic voice” (!) could be the foundation of a whole series of videos.

Look, I’ve only had one “hit” video in my entire life: the Oompa Loompa dance from the 1990s Willy Wonka movie (over 10 million views!) and I have no fantasy about repeating this with financial history tidbits. Worse than that, I found that creating the video below was a huge, huge amount of work (hours and hours of effort) and I doubt I have the time or energy to do any more. Still, I’d love to hear your feedback.
