Doctor Doom's Guide to the Universe and the Rules for Burial of Christian Insects

I was overseas during Memorial Day. Brian Keene hosted a special 20 minute video I produced called "Doctor Doom's Guide to the Universe and the Rules for Burial of Christian Insects." With music, cadence calling, and an essay presentation, this was my homage to the American Soldier. I'll share it here now.

Special Memorial Day Guest Video Blog by Weston Ochse

“In honor of the men and women who have trained, fought, and given their lives for America, I’ve created a dramatic and profane narrative about my real and not so real experiences in U.S. Army basic training. This is the story of one young man’s indoctrination into the world’s largest street gang, as well as a love song to what it means to be a soldier. Thanks to my fellow warrior Brian Keene for premiering this video.”

It was Sherman Alexie who inspired this video. If anyone has contact with him, I'd sure like for him to see it.
