Copy Editor’s Lament (The Layoff Song) VIDEO!

Here, finally, is the video to correspond with my song “Copy Editor’s Lament (The Layoff Song).”

As you might or might not recall, I wrote and recorded the song to celebrate copy editors but also as a commentary on the travails of the news industry – newspapers in particular. The video was shot by Elie Gardner, photojournalist extraordinaire; several of my friends — most of them journalists — volunteered as cast members. Michele Munz, a talented writer at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, did the choreography and played the role of “boss.”

Enjoy!
