Stewart made an unsolicited music video for “Jed’s Other Poem” by Grandaddy that is better than most videos I’ve seen in my life. How so? The video was “Programmed in Applesoft II on a 1979 Apple ][+ with 48K of RAM. Seriously.”

As someone who dabbled in computer programming for one school year before realizing that a life of programming would make me hate the world (and result in many computers bashed in with indentations of my fists), watching this video makes me go “Oooohoowhoaa.” Computer animation and effects won’t elicit much of a response from me, but show me some blinky green text and I’m SOLD. Besides that the song is beautiful, the computer is acting beyond its expected role of a dormant, dull, eye-straining box. Machines and technology don’t usually comjure up an idea of beauty, yet…here it is. If you don’t think it’s beautiful, I don’t want to hear it.

I love the video, except for the ending. Then again, I can’t think a good way to end it.
