LA Angel

Maybe I should have called this video “Freeway Angel.”

    that was VERY UNCOURTIOUS of your system:
    to erase my beautifully crafted comment to your angel video!
    because i pushed submit before filling in all required fields.
    That SUCKS and should be f*n fixed!!!!
    Now, about your angel:
    1. sure, now that you mention it.
    2. a still shot , digitally zoomed would have made a better video.
    3. your notion of compassion is compelling, unless he is the Angel of Death,
    checking to see if YOU are the one whose time is now UP.

    4. the comment that got away was much more poetic than this one.
    Sorry, but it’s your own (software’s) fault.
    Come to think of it, what are you
    but software?

    Fix yours,
    please.

    I think there’s a significance about his attire, the act that he’s in common clothing seems like it means hes one of, but the wings show us he’s different in one way or another. The watching of the watch also makes it seem like hes just one o us, but the wings i think show that hes passed away or something, like he’s fallen victim to the traffic.
    To me it comes off as a commentary on the self-centeredness of the gridlock highway driver and how overall not being conscious o others is very harmful to others.
    It reminds me of an episode of <> Where Lisa Kudrow’s Character ends up calling a suicidal Jason Alexander as a telemarketer. She ends up helping him, actually going to his workplace where the aforementioned insensitive public surrounds him.
    This piece, it seems, is a cry out or more people like Lisa Kudrow’s character.
