VIDEO: Dent May’s “Born Too Late”

 photo DentMay_old_zpsec11f5f1.jpg
There are times when I’ll look at certain events of the past, specifically before I was born, and will think that I was born too late. I would have loved to experience some of those things in real time, or my time, rather than it be something in a book or blog. I then realize that despite its share of ups and downs, I’ve had a fairly decent life so far, where I have fond memories but I very much represent the now and look forward to the future. Perhaps Dent May has gone through some of these thoughts in an introspective manner, and he wanted to put them into song with what he calls “Born Too Late”. The video was directed and edited by by Carson Culver, and was made for a song from his recently released Paw Tracks LP, Warm Blanket.
