03.24.2008 - John recently filmed a series of short features for an HDNet weekly segment entitled "Mellencamp: Thoughts Shared." The roughly three minute long segments, which also features brief original musical performances, run in random rotation at the end of HDNet's news and music programming, near the end of the hour and typically on Tuesday and Sunday nights.
Taped in John's home art studio in Bloomington, IN, the series finds JM speaking frankly about subjects ranging from farm policy, the voting process, the war in Iraq, racism, and other issues of concern in an informal setting. Each video in this series is unique and thought provoking. Below is an episode in the series entitled "Farm Aid."
