Feeling down?
Click on the "Nice weather for ducks" video link (which is now a permanent addition to the front page of "Blue-Grey"), and immediately cheer right up.

This is a video from Lemon Jelly, two artists- Nick Franglen and Fred Deakin, who (quite literally) skipped into the dance music world around 2002 with their album "Lost Horizons".
I have loved two of their songs, "Ramblin' Man" and "Nice weather for ducks" for a few years now - Ramblin Man for the song really, but Nice weather for ducks for the absolutely wonderful video. I hope my nephew still likes the DVD I gave his mother a few years ago.
Fred Deakin is the man behind Lemon Jelly's psychedelic, acid-trip videos; well his AIRSIDE studio is anyway.

You'll see the Black Rabbits make a fine addition to the video after only 30 seconds.

This video really makes me smile, especially when exactly 1min 17 seconds are left of it to play.
If, when I get as old as the beardy-chap in the video, I'm dancing about in amongst all the woodland creatures in my latter days, well then - that'll be just fine and dandy with me.
Yes siree.

Of course Elliot still loves this DVD!!

I particularly like the squirrel who is very enthusiastically jumping up and down towards the end of the DVD.

Great piece of animation to watch, if you are a two year old, or if you are an adult with a 2year old mentality.

Well, it's all a bit young people's music for me. It's got a good beat though. I'm going to stick my neck out and say "Space Walk" is the Lemon Jelly song you want, unless you're some sort of wildfowl fetishist of course.
