  • Man of sorrows is available by LOCAL download 2010-01-25 13:26:08 To all who requested a high quality version via e-mail. 
  • The best video on this site is..... 2007-10-06 01:26:19 I got a lot of e-mails in the last few months asking whether I'm gonna make some new AMV's. Funny how people start appreciating what you've done after you quit doing it :p. While I was eager and willing to edit AMV's people would mostly try to diminish them and search for every fucking error you've made or a spot you've missed. And now they are some sort of "classics"? lol

    This site is "ill". And I don't mean ill like "mad" more like having no appreciation for everything that's new and fresh and having seriously fucked up judging criteria of value and worth. There are a lot of "puny souls" as I like to say on this site. Forming some sort of clans or "studios" lol, like they've ever been in a real studio. It's not really the word studio that bothers it's the attitude and things they write on the forums. Everybody's so desperate at trying to push their studio members' vid no matter whether it's quality stuff or not that I almost die laughing when I see a video with subtitles and without a single fade or timing get 5-6 pages of debate at the anouncement thread :so sad: .

    Thanks to everyone who liked my work and to all you puny souls and envious "all 1's or 2's opers" I can just say:

    Screw you good sirs!

    On a side note the best video on this site, without any real competition, is:

    "Dead to the World" by Beowulf (The Ego of the org :p)

    I dlded it finally in its entirety and I can just say that I never encountered so many brilliant and ambiguous lyric synchs. The concept is also very powerful and the editing top notch as in all HypeO videos. The message it conveys is by no means worshipping the Antichrist , but the message 'is' antichristian (in a nietschean sense) and above all it is his own view of the screwed up society we live in and the catastrophe which awaits us if we don't change. I just can't understand the motive for making something so complex on a site for sth as unimportant as AMV's for people as retarded as the ones on the org. Beo should definitely write a book or make a film. That way people are at least going to hear him out.

    Have a nice day.

  • 2005-2007 2007-08-03 17:14:55 It's been a while since I visited here. During the past 2 years I checked my org profile 3 or 4 times tops. Since some people (well, 1 person :P) asked what I've been doing for these 2 years I decided to answer her:

    college!

    Yep...:P.Other than college and everything else that goes with it (parties, chicks,crab lice, stress etc.) I got interested in other things other than amv's and anime. I practice guitar every day and have an ambition to publish an album :D. Rock album, of course. I also started writing poetry and short stories. My professor at college encourages me to publish my poems although I still think they aren't anything special and want to wait a bit before my first book. I stopped going to the gym. Got sick of it to tell you the truth. I rarely watch anime nowadays.Recently watched Monster and I have to say it freakin rocks! Best new anime as far as I'm concerned. That and FMA. I watch a lot Japanese movies though, namely Kurosawa's and Mike's.Yeah...

    I have at least 10 great ideas for a new AMV, but I don't have enough willpower and aren't motivated to make them since they, as well as my old videos, will require a lot of effort. When I look at things from this perspective making AMV's is useless. A prolific person should find some other form of art or area of knowledge to express himself. Making AMV"s is remaking the already finished products and I realized that only recently when I started writing. Anime Music Videos are nothing creative, but making Anime and composing Music is. For some reason AMV's seem to me like some sort of an 21st century DADA and DADA sucks as well as most art groups and movements of that time. Yeah...

    Still, making AMV's is a good hobby....for adolescents. It's beyond my understanding how can anyone over the age of 25 or even 20 for that matter be obsessed with AMV's and want to be some sort of Creative God of the Org. The reason why I kept working on my videos so much is because I can't let anything I make unfinished and can't do it mediocre. Once I start something I need to do it to the fullest. That's about it. However, I'm glad I have other interests now. It's better to read books and stare at guitar strings 12 h a day than stare at the monitor and read net sites 12 h a day. Yeah...

    That's pretty much how I feel now after 2 years. And I don't care if you disagree :P. Yeah...

  • Working with live action better than working with anime. :P 2005-02-25 14:25:10 I'm really getting used to real life footage editing. The guys from the TV station offered me to edit a short music vid for a local band and the dudes are thrilled with the results. All the techniques I use in AMV's I tried to apply to this vid as well. Normally the director doesn't see this type of editing often and he said it looks great. This is like one big ego boost for me :P. And what's more I only used Premiere's usual stuff like Motion, some filters here and there and a bit of Photoshop masking. Nothing more!
    My Kill Bill vid is going great so far with 1/3 done.

    Editing live footage rocks! :up:
