In the Loop

"Just Waiting for my Airplane to the Sea"

Here's the deal: In The Loop got all hyped up to help out with some fun content from our listeners in the event of a Northwest-Delta merger. At one time, it felt extremely likely that merger was about to happen.

In the meantime, Delta pilots got cold feet or something and it looks like everyone might have gotten all worked up for nothing. Some of the stuff we had from listeners doesn't make any sense without a merger, and may never see the light of day.

We did, however, have this cute take on "Octopus's Garden" from listener Chris Kemp, inspired by the merger talk:

Chris sent in the lyrics, we dug up a karaoke track, monkeyed with it a little bit, and he came in and laid on the vocals. And then we....waited.

Well, no more. Northwest and Delta, we are out of patience. At the very least, Chris's very Loop-worthy effort deserves a place of honor here on the blog.

Chris is one of my three older brothers. He is very creative and has modified/created many songs over the years. When he emailed his song to all of us in the family (of which there are many) I could not help but to take Chris' song to the next level.

In less than three hours, I took Chris' song and put it into a video form. So for your "viewing" pleasure, I present to you "Airplane to the Sea" by Chris Kemp.
