is Ben Arnold. I'm a singer/songwriter and recently I wrote
some songs for you! I even recorded them and
made a CD - For You!
But there's one thing missing.
One thing that would complete my vision of a better,
happier, more entertaining world...
This is me talking about the
Video Project on a local TV Show.
deserves a great video to help tell its story. Sadly I don't have much
talent behind a camera (not much talent in front of a camera either).
So I'm asking for your help to make a
video. If you have:
a video camera,
an active imagination,
a love for music,
a little spare time
It would be really cool if you would help out with this
Just pick a song from the CD (they are listed below)
and create a video for it. Its as simple as
Upload the video to YouTube and I'll link it to the site
and we'll all be famous.
Here are the Project "FAQs", Rules, Details and "FINE PRINT"
Q1 - What's in it for the videographer?
A1 - You get a heartfelt thank you and FREE CD (details below)
Q2 - Who owns the mold removal companies video?
A2 - You, the videographer own it. Just post it to YouTube and let
me embed it to the site so other fans can see it.
Q3 - Is Ben Arnold available to brainstorm some ideas for a video?
A3 - You bet. My contact info is below. I'm excited to hear
Q4 - How do I get started?
A4 - Just do it. Or send me an e-mail to get the ball rolling and
if you don't have the CD, I'll get you one.
OK - that's it for now. If more questions come up, I'll post 'em.
Want some Ideas?
Here's are some of the Songs I Wrote for You
and a little background and some ideas you may want to run
with. but I bet you can do better.
Run Billy Run
"Billy" is a plastic hobby horse that used to
sit in a bucket outside the Chilihead BBQ Saloon (my favorite
BBQ joint). One night some jackass got drunk and stole Billy and
we never saw him again. or maybe... Billy just got tired
of dodging cigarette butts and decided to run away??? This
is a song of hope, of dreams realized, and of truly fine
tequila. Bring a camera to the Chilihead some night and
just let it roll.
Girl pays her dues and makes it big in the
I Fell in Love
Boy meets girl, they dance. Sax player
goes nuts. The rest is history.
We long for "The way it used to be", but time
moves on. But you got the memories anytime you want
'em. A chance for a little nostalgia. If you run
with this one please try to include a big old fashioned porch
Hard Way to Make a Living
Anyone who sells (or sings) for a living will
feel the pain in this number and know exactly what to create.
Definitely ought to be a Fedora in there somewhere.
A Sip of Your Beer
Sad sack country song about a sad sack loser
who is really, REALLY, thirsty. Don't forget to
film a group of cowboys singing the chorus.
The scene for this one could be a little
girls dance studio. Or a strip club. Your call.
Hang out at the first tee at the local
Municipal course and you'll have a lifetime of footage in the
first 20 minutes.
That's not a Bug, that's a
Hackers Unite! This song captures 5
years of frustrating battles with software - and arrogant
programmers who oughta know better.
About the lessons learned when we help out
those in need. This is a serious song and I really hope
you can do it justice.
