    **Resurrection**

    It was July 28th of the year 2005 when I last uploaded a video, (July 17th if you wanna count last DBZ video.) and after that there seemed to be a really really long delay in making more videos. It was only because, I died a little on the inside due to the many problems I've been having for these past months. I promised back then that I was going to remake my older works at least by the end of the summer, but unfortunately and disappointedly that never happened. Why? As unreliable as my computer is, it crapped out on me. I can't even begin to count the number of times I had to reformat my hardrive throughout this time just to get it to work properly to my liking. Along that time I had almost given up on making AMV's, until inspiration and determination awakened me and after watching a couple of other great AMV's getting the credit they deserved, I wanted that spot as well. So with that, one last chance, I started getting to work once again.

    Background

    Now in order to start this sort of thing, I thought as said a while back to re-invent my very first uploaded work on here Carol Of The Super Saiyan. By re-invent I mean take it to a whole new lowe, not exactly remaking it. At first I was thinking of using the song O Fortuna to go with the whole thing but then I thought to myself...Nah. The outcome of it was...Horrific. So after much time thinking and watching among other videos to see what would go right, I finally found it, and it actually goes very well with what I had in mind. I had to very well get the better source of footage compared to my first work and do a much better job in my editing skills, if you wish to really know how long this development took then here it is:

    Time It Took From Square One: 7 Months.
    Time It Took To Actually Get Started: 3 Months.
    Time It Took To Edit: 1 month, 3 weeks.
    Time In A Nutshell: 3 Weeks.

    All that within a 7 month range and time period. So yeah, it was getting pretty annoying.

    The Video

    I don't think this part would be really necessary since we all should know what this would be but regardless, this video is pretty much about what you've seen in the Trailer, at least you hopefully seen it maybe. And for starters, this video is the reincarnation of my very first video Carol Of The Super Saiyan that was featured here. It's nothing like the first though I assure you, now about the video (If you really wanna know). I'm just trying to prove here that Goku is really, seriously, truly the last hope for a whole race that was tortured and almost extinct by a ruler that conquered them. Ever since his father first rbelling against Frieza, and because of the prince's death, Goku swore to use everything within his strength to avenge what was lost to him and protect those he cared for the most. I really tried to capture most and every part of the first fight of Goku v.s Frieza. A part 2 of this video should also be coming, don't know when but it will...Somehow and somewhere.

    Conclusion

    And now in ending this, this is probably one of my very first jump-off videos in my skills since I started editing just a few months back and you really won't be disappointed in this piece of work. This video wasn't actually hard to make in overall, but it was still very very annoying to actually get this thing over with, especially when trying to come up with a proper intro to the video but, don't matter. I'm back once again and this time with a vengeance (As you'll see in the intro of the video) and hopefully this video won't get too crushed by reviews. I know I may lose points in originality here but until I get my unfinished business over with for my personal reasons, I'd like to make DBZ videos before branching out on different flavors of anime. I've been watching DBZ AMV's for years so it's almost a passion. I may be overdoing this a bit on the comments unlike my earlier videos, but since I'm so happy with the outcome I feel it's necessary.

    Please leave opinions folks, I'd really like to hear what you think about it and see if I really proved a well good point with this video with the song. I tried my best to compress this thing to a decent enough file size so it keeps the same quality and even the dial-up people won't complain (Maybe).

    Lyrics

    Send away for a priceless gift
    One not subtle, one not on the list
    Send away for a perfect world
    One not simply, so absurd
    In these times of doing what you're told
    You keep these feelings, no one knows
    What ever happened to the young man's heart
    Swallowed by pain, as he slowly fell apart


    And I'm staring down the barrel of a 45,
    Swimming through the ashes of another life
    No real reason to accept the way things have changed
    Staring down the barrel of a 45


    Send a message to the unborn child
    Keep your eyes open for a while
    In a box high up on the shelf, left for you, no one else
    There's a piece of a puzzle known as life
    Wrapped in guilt, sealed up tight


    What ever happened to the young man's heart
    Swallowed by pain, as he slowly fell apart


    And I'm staring down the barrel of a 45,
    Swimming through the ashes of another life
    No real reason to accept the way things have changed
    Staring down the barrel of a 45


    Everyone's pointing their fingers
    Always condemning me
    And nobody knows what I believe
    I believe


    And I'm staring down the barrel of a 45,
    Swimming through the ashes of another life (Another life)
    No real reason to accept the way things have changed
    Staring down the barrel of a 45


    And I'm staring down the barrel of a 45,
    And I'm wimming through the ashes of another life
    There is no real reason to accept the way things have changed
    Staring down the barrel of a 45
