Highlight: "I've always had difficulty envisioning my songs outside of a sort of cinematic narrative tied to the images the lyrics and sonics leave behind in my head," John Murry tells Spinner. "Jesse Brodkey, the director, came up with the concept and it doesn't directly reference the images built into the lyrics, though he so very easily could have. Instead he used slowed down and sped up shots brought back to eerie effect at normal speeds to create a complete image that encapsulates the heart of the song. He created a real work of art that I am simply proud to have been a part of; one that transcends the hallucinatory snapshots I wrote and presents California (the place) as an absolutely whimsically psychotic Kodachrome nightmare. I couldn't have had more fun looking insane, walking at a quarter of the speed of the song and alternately almost running through North Beach and Chinatown and The Financial District of San Francisco."
