It’s got a Jean Giraud thing going for it, don’t you think?

I call it Post-Apocalypse Monk Walks His Mutated Dog.

About Joel

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    I assume it wasn’t 104 degrees already this year, and that the camera was in the sun? But the way you’re carrying your gun reminds me of a disgruntled Senator going up the hill to kill the Emperor…

  2. Joel says:

    Yeah, you can’t believe the temperature reading when the camera’s in the sun.

    The monk robe, high tech leg, fluffy corgi butt, large caliber revolver… everything in this sequence is fantastically incongruous.

  4. Eric says:

    Too funny. Had you been carrying a spear in one hand and the revolver in the other it would have been perfect.

  5. Malatrope says:

    Actually, the more I watch this sequence, the more it sparks ideas for movies…
    Wow.

  6. Zelda says:

    By every cinematic standard, especially content, the absolute best video you have ever posted. I see Sundance in your future. Maybe you’ll want to replace the Our Founder photo with this video? Now to clean the coffee off my keyboard…

    It reminds me more of a scene from A Boy and His Dog. 🙂

    Looking at that video tells me you must read A Canticle for Leibowitz by Walter Miller Jr.

    beaner49: GMTA although I couldn’t remember the author until seeing your comment.

    The video looks to me like the first time Joel took TB “hunting” (euphemism for euthanasia, city folks), he missed and tagged himself. Six months later, he’s gonna try again. Geez, my mind goes to dark places- I gotta get out more. Run, TB! Run!

    🙂 I have a copy right here.

  11. How’s the new leg doing? Watching you walk, it looks like it’s just a little too short. Is that one of the future adjustments that can be made?

  12. Joel says:

    I have finally sorted out some padding issues and the leg is much more consistently comfortable. I think I will need a minor angle adjustment – fortunately you can do that now – because I’m getting some ligament strain down the back of my thigh but the length still seems good to me. Curious you should say that though because the prosthetist was also concerned about length to the point of throwing in a spare tube I can cut to length if needed.

  13. Cookie says:

    I’m jjust glad the wind wasn’t any stronger!!!!

  14. Joel says:

    Then I’d have saved it for my X-rated members only channel.

  15. John in Philly says:

    Perhaps slow motion and a musical theme written by Ennio Morricone. 🙂

  16. BobF says:

    If you haven’t sent a link directly to your prosthetics guru you are terribly late in doing so. Unless, of course, he is a regular here, in which case he is among good and real people.

    Do I see a flat-ish magnetically-powered two-seater hovering just above the planetary sands in the far background?

    Muad dib!

    Most desert hermits don’t know who Jean Giraud is, so I think you’ve won the title of Coolest Desert Hermit.

    The video made me smile.

To the stake with the heretic!
