  • Comments: So this is pretty much my first video. When I say pretty much, it's well...complicated. Ha ha ha, cheesy pun. Sorry. Anyway, I started this video, but shortly after that I edited a segment for Iron Chef Idol 3, which obviously got finished first. However, I started this one first, and it's my first full-length, not-part-of-a-MEP video, so I really consider it my first.

    I'd been wanting to have a shot at making AMV's for a while, and the idea for this particular one came to me after I got Imogen Heap's solo album. I was listening to this song, and it seemed to me that the lyrics could really work with RahXephon. So after lots of procratination, I finally made it.

    About the aspect ratios. I'm sure it will drive plenty of you nuts, how it seems to change between 4:3 and 16:9. I didn't do that. RahXephon is a crazy anime, and certain episodes appear to be widescreen, but really just have borders. :/

    I would like to thank the people in #AMV who got me to stop procrastinating and to actually start editing. I would like to also my beta testers (in no particular order) Brsrk, AMV_4000, Kitsuner, Ileia, Kristyrat, Fall_Child42, Niotex, Koopiskeva, Madman, Kai_Lexx, and anyone else I may have forgotten to mention. And special thanks to Kristyrat and Fall_Child42 for helping me encode this thing. I'll get you guys cookies or something.

    Lyrics

    Doing everything by halves
    You got a real flair with excuses
    Meeting someone at the bar
    Where loose still have uses

    It's complicated
    This time I think it could be
    Triangulated
    It could just be what we need
    So what you say we give it up and walk away?
    We're overrated anyway

    We're kissing without kissing
    And got down to a fine art
    Love's supposed to keep you young and frisky
    but we grew up and wide apart
    (tick tock tick tock)
    Not now not ever
    No it's never a good time
    How will the good times ever roll on?
    Comparing photos, then and now, now and then
    Just wondering (wondering)
    Where it all went wrong

    It's complicated
    This time I think it could be
    Triangulated
    It could be just what we need
    So what you say we give it up and walk away?
    Nothing to salvage anyway

    Want to, oh, Need to, oh, Try to, oh
    None of the above,
    Want to, oh, Need to, oh, Try to, oh
    None of the above,
    Want to, oh, Need to, oh, Try to, oh
    None of the above,
    Want to, oh, Need to, oh

    LIAR

    It's complicated,
    This time I think it could be
    Triangulated
    It could be just what we need
    So what d’you say, we give it up and walk away?
    We're overrated, anyway

    It's complicated,
    This time I think it could be
    Triangulated
    It could be just what we need
    So what d’you say, we give it up and walk away?
    nothing to salvage, anyway

    LIAR
