The Original Appearance of Seamus Muldoon

Seamus Muldoon was a product of Jack Gordon's fertile mind. Way back on Labor Day Weekend in 2000 I sat down with Jack at his property on Luke Road in Costilla County near Fort Garland, Colorado and shot this video footage.  Now there is no denying that he had a curious appearance, what with the "aw shucks" grin, the shaggy beard, unruly white hair and bushy eyebrows, but the playful spirit and at least half the wit of Seamus Muldoon comes through, despite the poor video and sound quality (my apologies on that count). 

Little did I know at the time that this would turn out to be the only recorded video memory we have of Jack.  But this is noteworthy for being the first public manifestation of the character Seamus Muldoon.  His final words on this video are fitting for the manner of his curious disappearance eight years later.
