Neil is NOT a good filmmaker. He's an odd duck. He's very environmentalist. He has interesting side projects like Linc volt https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LincVolt  and Pono,https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pono_(digital_music_service) He just does things because he can, not because he's some kind of visionary innovator. I like some of his videos because they are amusing.  Like Wonderin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h0PlwVPbM5k'. He did some innovative adaptive things for his son Ben who is fully involved cerebral palsied, non-verbal individual. I have some issues with Neil but I don't have to like him to like his music though.  The Rust never sleeps concert is bizarre, but the music is good.

Yep , good for him but I think he was over the top of native American issues.

I don't remember the whole story on Greendale. But it was about environmental issues?  

OK I just read the lyrics and only one song on the album seemed to be about environmentalism.

 
 
 
 
 
Well, what you have to realize is that when that album was released, Neil released a film called Greendale. It was kind of weird, and isn't overtly environmentalist, but Neil likes to refer to it as having an environmentalist theme. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0379307/ [Image: search?view=detailV2&ccid=zJvUOn19&id=10...ajaxserp=0]

You are right I had no clue he made a film. Apparently it was a flop LOL. I might watch it anyway just for the halibut Big Grin

Laughing It's  not unusual for extremely talented people to be lacking in other areas.

Have you ever looked at at Linc Volt?  Seems like something you might find interesting, with your kind of mind.
