    David and his voice seem exhausted but that version of Birds of the High Arctic is gorgeous. Thanks for posting these videos, Julian.

    You're right, I don't know how they're all keeping such a pace. Not only the travel, but all the promo stuff in between too. And only two weeks off before they come back in the fall.

    Fantastic. The first clip about the inspiration for Birds, Gulls, and Incredible is wonderful. Makes me long for a really good, meaty interview with him. And it occurs to me that not just anyone can sit in front of DG and ask questions, you know? I think he's gracious and all, but kind of a hard nut to crack. I wonder who he would like to be interviewed by? I've seen a couple great examples of "peer-to-peer" interviews (conversations, really) that are satisfying for everyone. Kind of like Jerry Seinfeld taking his friends out for coffee and talking about comedy...
