Wilco and the CTA

February 16th, 2011 1 comment

I was in Chicago over the weekend, and on the way out of town on the purple line I decided to grab some footage with my iPhone 4. I put it together with a live version of the song “Misunderstood” from Wilco, and tweaked the timing of the two to play well with each other. I’ve listened to this song on the EL many times, it’s kind of an autobiographical song for me in many ways, especially when I listen to it on the blue/red/purple lines.

I love how the Hancock is partially visible during the last 2/3rds of the video, then comes into full view after the repetitive resolve – but only for a moment, then the train turns east past North Ave. and the camera looks north at everything that had been contemplated previously. Again more autobiography.

Misunderstood on the CTA
