The Afterglow
There is a wonderful moment in Woody Allen's "Everything you always wanted to know about..." when the camera moves back from a close-up of Gene Wilder smoking in post-coital bliss to reveal, sharing his bed, a sheep. I am currently in such a state. If I were a smoker I would be smoking. I am at peace with the Universe, although there is every danger that when the camera reveals the whole story, the cause of my tranquillity may involve "sheepishness" on the part of many. Like Woody I find it difficult to express myself in mere words, and must therefore sunstantially rely on visual images.So I have prepared a small piece of cinema in order to convey my sincere thanks to Wicklore and Brenno (although I singularly failed to do justice to the more restrained contribution of McCrithley which will have to feature in the sequel). This laconic "moving picture" has been completed within a very short period and will fall far short of the standard to which you have lately become accustomed. Its appearance on YouTube will depend on successful processing. In previous cases my movies have been referred to the Board of Directors of YouTube for approval and since I am a controversial figure, you may not be able to see anything for a month. When the censors have given the OK you can enter YouTube and search there for CapVertigo (or Scavenger Five). I began by seeking to capture the terrible poignancy of walkers who "pass in the day", but sadly lost sight of my objectives as time went on. The result is what critics are calling "A Dog's Dinner"
