    Jed’s Other Poem is a music video for Grandaddy’s song of the same name. I created this music video by programming simple text animations on a vintage 1979 Apple ][+ computer—a computer so old that it is only equipped with 48K of RAM (far less than your mobile phone), contains no hard drive or mouse, and only types in majuscules. Music by Grandaddy. Video concept and execution by your humble narrator, Stewart Smith. Cinematography by Jeff Bernier. Released in September 2005—well before Portal's Still Alive music video finale.

    The "prepared Apple computer" used to make the video was included in the Art Directors Club 2009 Young Guns exhibition with the Jed software running on loop from the original floppy disk.
