Jed’s Other Poem (Beautiful Ground)

Jed’s Other Poem (Beautiful Ground) from Stewdio on Vimeo.

"Jed's Other Poem is the official music video for Grandaddy's song of the same name.

This song serves as a eulogy for Jeddy-3, a humanoid robot built from spare parts. He is a recurring character on Grandaddy's record "The Sophtware Slump." According to Grandaddy before Jed's system crashed he wrote poems. Poems for no one.

Programmed entirely in Applesoft BASIC on a vintage 1979 Apple ][+ with 48K of RAM, a computer so old it has no hard drive or mouse and only types in capitals. The Jed source code is available for download making it the first open-source music video. Cinematography by Jeff Bernier."
