    Yes, I've just been sucked into the vortex… The S.K.V.

    Great job, Killer. Exponential evolution in your video skills. Really… you just blew away any early detractors.

    It feels you are channelling the likes of Luis Buñuel, Dali, Cocteau, Man Ray – or Terry Gilliam is making episodic sequels to Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

    Wonderfully disturbing and intriging – you have certainly found a new creative outlet that's captivating for us voyeurs.

    Looking forward to the next dose – I fear the withdrawal.

    Holy shiite,

    the evolution has happened before my very eyes.

    did this happen before?
    in the future?

    good stuff

    though I can't help but wonder what the neighbours were thinking as you and NK were standing there on the back step worshipping the little white mac god

    "Hey Gladys – look at that hippy guy – I reckon he's trying to see himself on google earth"

    Brilliant as ever! Hypnotic? Did you know Paul McKenna uses that voice over voice technique on some of his hypnosis CDs?

    Anyone browsing the net who stumbled upon this one would thing us 'followers' are part of a cult – then again, maybe we are. xx

    Kubrick, Kilbey & Col. Kurtz This is evocative. And I wonder is the music interlacing with the visuals something you made expressly for this A/V experience….i liked the meshing of you and NK's prose.

    well done Steve

    Very cool Steve! I especially love the first 40 seconds or so with you staring into the superimposed camera angles rotating around, and the ending with the whiteout. The soundtrack is awesome, too. Nice work!

    On another note, I am immersing myself in the Kilbey-Kennedy songs today via myspace. I can't wait to get my hands on my very own copy. This is an amazing piece of work, SK. Kudos to you, MK, JK and Simon. It's EXCELLENT, over the top. Wish I could be at The Toff on the 10th… but I'm half a world away, and teleportation won't be perfected by then. But I'll continue to let this music teleport me. Sincerely, Louis

    i had the same dream; cept my wife was the other one; and woke up w/ huge headache; you should paint it, but you may have forgotten it already; would it be black/ white or color.

    would love a sig on Earthed; also, how can i get my 990 back from yer paypal. meant to give 10 charitably for yer time being entertainment, but the software automatically added 3 more zero's. wtf? but could/ would call it even if i can mail my copy of Earthed to you; but 'yer people' won't share yer address; happy to send magic return envelope so not much for you to do, except sign my only copy; you can email me at

    thanks for getten better w/ age -it all rolls into the next lifetime, so you gotta keep it up and keep improving it – wilfred paradise

    i was blown away by this video… reminds me of Shriek… and I can't even think of the book without the music and the movie. SK, I recommend "The Etched City" in that vein if you haven't read it…

    I love you dearly and I buy everything that you do……but I can't see or hear these vids so I'll just read all the fiends comments!!
    I was never much into vids much anyway…..or TV…or bloody Hollywood films…but I'm glad so many folk are digging it!
    Have a good weekend all. Love to all of you too!!
    I'm off to Glastonbury and Stonehenge this weekend. Cliche…10/10…but I should get to smoke a bit and eat some good veggie food with plenty of chrunch along the way.
