The Wilderness Downtown

If you haven't seen this by now, it's worth checking out. Nice use of nostalgia. Helps if you like the music too. Which I do. I'm really interested in how nostalgia works and what triggers it... music, images, a certain shade of colour, a time where the light is just right, or that perfume your best friend used to wear. So much inspiration comes from memories I think.

my friends (and the blogosphere) have been RAVING about this video, so I finally watched it the other night...and the address I grew up at was too rural to have enough shots for google maps :( so I couldn't get the same experience everyone else has been having. I had to watch it using an address I lived at in Brooklyn for 3 years.
