For your amusement, or derision (your choice), I'll do my bit to make Josh not think we're abandoning his strip in droves by the lack of activity here. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/wink.gif"><P>A couple of weeks ago, I did one of these -- I think Josh called it a still video -- for "Cold Fire" by Rush. This one is "Crash", by Dave Matthews Band, featuring Joe & Ceilidh to the lyrics.<P>An off-site version of this is at: <a href="http://www.renimar.com/avalon/crash.html">http://www.renimar.com/avalon/crash.html</a><P>Enjoy. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/smile.gif"><P>CAVEAT LECTOR: Risqué lyrics ahead.<P><img src="http://www.renimar.com/avalon/strip1.jpg" border="0"><P><img src="http://www.renimar.com/avalon/strip2.jpg" border="0"><P><img src="http://www.renimar.com/avalon/strip3.jpg" border="0"><P><img src="http://www.renimar.com/avalon/strip4.jpg" border="0"><P><img src="http://www.renimar.com/avalon/strip5.jpg" border="0">

WOW!!! That is great!<P>Not that I want to nitpick, but I seem to remember there is another stanza after "whose got theeur claws into you, my friend?". Must listen to the saon again.<P>I am very impressed. I guess this is as close Avalon will get to AMV's.

Cool, another one!<P>I agree with coldacid, though - you need a better font. Anyone still have that Josh Phillips one Mizu (I think... Or was it Wapiko?) made a while back kicking around?<P>------------------

Thanks for the feedback, all. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/smile.gif"><P>I did this up at work during a slooooow period, and I was using Paintshop Pro, which I had never used before, and I only had the default Word2000 fonts in my box, so I didn't have all that great a selection. <P>I tried looking for the Josh font, but didn't have much luck finding it. Anybody have a copy or know where it is? I'd be much obliged. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/smile.gif"><P>I'm winnowing through my music collection to see if there's another one I can do. I can't draw worth a damn, but I can do these. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/smile.gif"><P>------------------

First I'd like to say that I absolutely love it, nice job. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/biggrin.gif"><P>Has anyone got a copy of Flash? Flash is perfect for making still videos like this and actually having them animated & with music. I'd make it right now, but I no longer have Flash on my computer due to a recent upgrade. If anyone has a copy of Flash or knows where I could get ahold of one (preferably for little or no money) I'd be more than happy to make it into a real video and post it for all to see.<p>[This message has been edited by Benswope (edited 09-26-2001).]
