Oh So Over It

So yesterday's weird mood is gone and I'm feeling pretty optimistic.  That's maybe the wrong word but at any rate I'm not as blue as I was yesterday.  I shook it off with the help of some loud, aggressive music and there were some things I was listening to that made me think of the warrior spirit of the Dwarves so I'm getting requests in now for specific songs if any vidders happen to be reading.  Dude, bccmee so spoiled us.

Yeah yeah, this one's already the theme from a movie but I really can't resist it.  Longtime readers of this blog know how I feel about Chris Cornell's voice and the fact that my favorite thing about The Avengers was the new Soundgarden.  Plus, can you imagine the insane editing someone really talented could do to that guitar?  I can.  Oh, and I still totally think Thorin's look was inspired by Kim Thayil, without the tuque.

 

"Freak On A Leash" has never been in a movie but it was an episode of The Simpsons.  That's kind of the same thing, right?  Maybe not.  Anyway, the original vid is really amazing and if you can't take the music I recommend turning it down and just watching.  Plus this song already has an interesting fan foot note:  a remix from a fifteen year old fan got airplay in 2006, which you can read about here.  I don't know, looking at those braids maybe Korn had something to do with the Dwarves' look.  Hmm.



Okay, so now that I've watched FOAL about four times I'll turn it over to you guys.  Is there any particular song that you want to see used in a vid?  Is there a vidder out there who might be willing to take requests from technically challenged but funky contributors?  Comments are open.

  1. Ich verstehe nur Bahnhof, although thanks to you I now understand what Soundgarden is.

    1. The German is your revenge for your having to Google Soundgarden, isn't it? *sighs and goes to babelfish* When did babelfish become such a pain in the tuchus?

  2. Giggles! I know what you mean about vidding, Funky. I'm itching to try a "moving clips" video. And I found a song that I want to use with the clips I plan to rip. So I reviewed the how tos of vidding on Sunday and even checked out the aspect ratio issue of the dvd I'm hoping to use. But I have to wait a bit since I tend to pull all nighters when doing vids, to keep in the groove--so labor/vision intensive. Ha!
    Best wishes finding someone to do your vidding/bidding. Ha!

  3. I Told You I was Freaky~ Flight of the Concords would be an awesome vid song.

  4. Soundgarden! Chris Cornell! Korn! Oh wait, what was this post about again? Right, fanvids. I can kind of see "Freak on a Leash" working for Thorin. He's kind of leashed by his family legacy and the need to take back Erebor.

    1. See, I knew someone would get where I was going with that. I love the weird numetal scat thing Davis does in the middle of it...even I can sing that. :)

  5. Kim Thayil inspired Thorin's look?!! Haha brilliant! I'm actually interested in the Hobbit now :)

    My long term goal is to set a North and South fan vid to Slayer.
