I’m highly delighted by Mikko’s visual sensibilities (he’s gotten some artistic inspiration in his work, visually, from “Monty Python & The Holy Grail,” which is one of the most divine-looking and best films of all time AFAIC), so I was pretty darn jazzed about this.

I now call your attention to The Complete Adventures of the Unrelated Sound Guy, a short film by Mikko Keinonen, based on five songs from my upcoming album.

I have seen some of the footage and it’s completely delightful. I’m entirely thrilled that this film will exist.
