  • John Linnell on the creation of the video in a 2004 interview with SubModern Report:
On The Spine Surfs Alone EP, and I don’t think this has been advertised very widely, there’s a Flash video that I made in my spare time. I taught myself Flash last year and it’s really humble. It’s like my very, very humble crude drawing style applied to Flash video for one of the songs that’s on the EP. And, I’m just finishing up another one while we’re on the road, and we’re going to put that one up on the site. They’re funny and kind of sweet but, from a technical standpoint, there’s a reason why I play in a band. It’s a fun thing for me to do because I can do it my laptop while I’m on the road. Flash is really easy, in case anybody doesn’t already know that. It’s real easy to make funny little cartoons with Flash, and make a video for your song using Flash. That’s basically what I’ve been doing.
  • The original Flash animation file was included on the CD for The Spine Surfs Alone, entitled "Im_all_you_can_think_of.fla"; the metadata shows that the video was finished on June 15, 2004.
  • The text in the video is from Marcel Proust's Swann's Way (Du côté de chez Swann), the first volume of his novel In Search of Lost Time (À la recherche du temps perdu).
  • The song was listed as "Only Think Of Me" on tmbg.com.
