I started this pseudo self-promo a couple of years ago, but became frustrated by the aging processor in my old Powerbook that failed to consistently sync the soundtrack with the visuals. I finally threw up my hands and walked away from it — until a few months ago when I was invited to Tulsa to give a public presentation at the Philbrook Museum of Art. Equipped with a new MacBook Pro and the latest version of Apple’s Keynote, I trashed the original and started over with all new elements. Possessed by a perfectionist mindset, I was obsessed with getting every detail correct – from typeface to transition. Since my ADHD brain craves and feeds on the rush of an impending deadline, I finished ripping the final version in my hotel room, minutes before my ride arrived to take me to the museum! I was an even better rush occurred when PAPER CUTS blasted onto a screen that was bigger than my house in jaw-dropping color, amazing clarity and backed a thumping soundtrack—a Verve remix of Sarah Vaughan’s FEVER by Max Sedgely—that shook the entire auditorium.


Even though it’s much smaller here, I hope (fingers crossed) you enjoy it:

  1. Great work Thomas. Always excited to see a new blog post awaits.

  2. Thomas, I have always been a huge fan of your work. The Philbrook was an old haunt of mine growing up in the midwest. They are very smart to have had the foresight to have you there.
