UPDATE: Well, I finally managed to download it. I'm not too fond of all the messing with the dialogue, but the quality of the video was pretty top-notch.

Thanks. The idea I had was to have a mini-story in the video, which is why I made those edits.

I think Meredith Brooks song "Bitch" would be a funny one to do. I can think of pictures for many lines in that song.

I hate the world today - angry Nanase from Painted Black
You're so good to me
I know but I can't change
Tried to tell you
But you look at me like maybe
I'm an angel underneath - Fairy Nanase
Innocent and sweet - Ellen tackle-hugging Grace
Yesterday I cried - Ellen crying under the table
Must have been relieved to see
The softer side
I can understand how you'd be so confused
I don't envy you
I'm a little bit of everything -Omega Grace/SCJ legion
All rolled into one -Omega Grace/SCJ legion

Chorus:
I'm a bitch, - <_< >_> Susan. *gets hammered*
I'm a lover - Sarah and Elliot kissing
I'm a child, - Child Ellen
I'm a mother - The "Mommy" scene from after painted black
I'm a sinner, - Ellen with horns
I'm a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I'm your hell, - Nanase before fighting Elliot
I'm your dream - Nanase's dream after painted black
I'm nothing in between
You know you wouldn't want it any other way

So take me as I am
This may mean
You'll have to be a stronger man - Suseman
Rest assured that
When I start to make you nervous
And I'm going to extremes - Grace's crazy grin
Tomorrow I will change - Grace in Squirrel form
And today won't mean a thing

Chorus

Just when you think, you got me figured out
The season's already changing
I think it's cool, you do what you do
And don't try to save me

Chorus

I'm a bitch,
I'm a tease
I'm a goddess on my knees
When you hurt,
when you suffer
I'm your angel undercover - Fairy Nanase
I've been numb, - Ellen holding Nanase
I'm revived
Can't say I'm not alive
You know I wouldn't want it any other way

I was just listening to Trapt's latest album and it had a great song for a music video. Sample line: "You're not the mastermind- I am the product of my own design!" (song: Product of my own design).

Great for Ellen and Grace and their various denyings of what they were ment to be (by lab people, by mr. Ghosty Mastermind, etc.) and forging their own destinies.


Of course, it also strikes me Ellen's been getting the lion's share of video subject. Justin and Elliot and Tedd need video love too!

Wow, I'm very impressed. Despite having heard "Brick" many, many, many times, I never really made any connection there until now. I guess that's probably due to the fact that the song's "real" message has been branded onto my mind, but it still works well here because that song is so open to interpretation. (And by the way, if anyone is curious as to what that "real message" is, I suggest you try to look it up, because I wouldn't want to ruin anyone's fun through mentioning it.)

Again, an excellent job.

Hmmmmm....

Thinking about making my own music vid, but I'm too tired now, so it'll have to wait till tommorow.

All I need are ideas, and I bet I can whip up something decent.

Right now, my main hindrance is a lack of ideas and most possibly one of the worst music libraries to do this.

UPDATE: Okay, I think I might be able to pull one off with "That's Really Super, Supergirl" by XTC.

I got to watch this for the first time last night.

Wonderful, just Wow... I had to replay it a few times just for the whole song/video to truly sink in, just sat there, jaw droped, watching this... \

Nice ide, but I done have that song. I'm planning something for othr cast members to star in (Grace the most note wrothy, but no one knows the group Porcelain).

Yes, I know the reason. I did try to work it in (don't know how that worked).

As to other songs, that is a good song that I have had ideas about, bt because I have a general rule to try not to use songs with swearing maybe not (no real reason, but I do have a numberof songs that would make a priate faint).

I can view it fine. Which player are you using? VLC can't view WMV9 but MPlayer and Xine can if you compile them with support for win32codecs and install the win32codecs zip from the mplayer site.

Totem based on xine-lib will behave the same way as xine-ui and Totem with GStreamer can play them if you install the pitfdll plugin for GStreamer.

I've heard that VLS (VideoLAN Server) can use GStreamer for input so I assume that you could also play it on VideoLAN Client by using VLS and a loopback stream.

*Stares in shock*
I have had this song stuck in my head for A MONTH NOW.
Thank you thank you thank you. For the life of me I could not figure out *what* song it was, because I only ever remember the music, not the lyrics.

Aheh, yeah, I know it's not the normal compliment but, um... hey, look at the time! Seriously though, it was a very nice choice of music to go with the art, and very touching. There were a couple panels with some minor border artifacts, but other than that, it was quite strong on the technical aspects as well - as others have said, very good transitions, well matched to the music, and it had a nice slow pace to it. The modified dialog was a bit confusing, but that's because I have bad enough memory that it took me a few minutes to realize it was editted and stop trying to remember which comic all these unfamiliar lines were from - so I'd say you did a good job of blending the dialog to the writing style of the comic :)


(And by the way, if anyone is curious as to what that "real message" is, I suggest you try to look it up, because I wouldn't want to ruin anyone's fun through mentioning it.)


That was definently an unexpected meaning, I'll give you that.*

* (Mind, it doesn't usually occur to me that songs *have* meanings. And I've been known to occasionally be suprised by such obvious things as men being, *gasp*, male, for that matter... so I'm not sure how much me calling something unexpected actually means, aheh)

Ok here it is.

The Song:
Gorillaz- Clint Eastwood.

The set up:
Elliot/Ellen from Before-during-and after sister.

Now I should tell you that I'm 99% happy with it. I have a better idea with timingwith this (you'll see what I mean).

(note, I used Rapidshare to upload it to the net. So it may take a little effot to download it)

An oddly perfectly fitting song in several ways ^_^ The events fit the lyrics, the tune is weird in a semi-dark way, things happen at the right time... really great.

I think that's even tied Shine as my favorite EGS video.
