This Might Be Symbolic…Or Not: I, Pet Goat II

I, pet goat II from Heliofant on Vimeo.

So many sociopolitical metaphors, it”s mind boggling. Strangely mesmerizing and slightly confusing.

    Crappy. The video blames world problems on the crumbling of religious beliefs. Everyone knows that it`s religion`s fault in the first place. A crumbling of religious beliefs is our only hope for the future. Do away with religion and God fairytales and you do away with all the hatred and evil done in the name of God.

    Interesting interpretation. I couldn`t make much sense of it, seems to be the equivalent of a visual platitude. Given your interpretation it seems weird that someone would take that position about all religions. It certainly isn`t in a religion`s interest to lend credibility to other religions, so I don`t understand how someone could value all religions which are intrinsically at odds and say the lack of them is a problem. Than again I don`t understand why people do a lot of things.

    What happened to the goat? Interesting visuals, but the vid was not to my likeing. If you have a point to make, just come out and say it. Darn ARTSY FARTSY GIBBERISH! Also, agree with patchouly.

    Why are people still making dull (if technically very accomplished) satire on Bush when you now have a far richer source of material in a far more idiotic President? He has been out of office for over 3 years, get over it!
