    This video was so much fun to make. I was originally planning on just releasing it when I was done with it, but thanks to NME, who suggested I quote: "enter it in a fucking contest or something" I decided that I'd enter it in AWA Professional. I've loved MC Frontalot since I learned of him a year or so ago, but the notion to make a video to one of his songs didn't quite hit me until a couple months ago. The petty lawbreaking in "Crime Spree" just screamed Bebop to me, so I started with the DVD's I've had for over 2 years but never really wanted to use for a video (Hellsing, Trigun and Berserk sit with the same fate on my anime shelf... -_-;;). From there I threw them in premiere and just started scene scrollin', looking for clips to fit lyrics and ideas. I built the basic framework of the vid, but realized that alot of the humor Frontalot carries in his music didn't feel right in a Plain Jane video, so I started in on the sight gags. Since NME is also a big Frontalot fan, he and I brainstormed thought up the 18 different sight gags and text "Pop Culture Pop-ups" Some of them are subtle (Look who'se name is in the Kazaa window, what's written in the Premiere preview screen, and what's written on the "Bootleg Tape", etc.), while others are in your right in your face. Like Stephen Hawking says in the intro, watch it again with pauses after your first viewing to get a good laugh out of some of the quicker jokes.

    Now for the lyrics:

    mc frontalot: the arch criminal for some reason not
    sought by authorities, though I been running wild for days
    they's surely gonna track me down
    I'm the #1 menace for miles around
    with the littering, the loitering, the mattress tags
    all the piratated mp3s I grabs [arrrr]
    all the cable I stole, certain bathroom wall I wrote on
    i'm so cruel & cold you put a coat on
    i even cheat on my tax!
    "from this life of crime there could be no turning back"
    riding all around on my bike with no helmet, commit mail fraud whenever I see a mailman
    got a jaywalking ticket. I crumpled it up!
    still bump the bootleg cause I'm hanging tough [we're ruff!]

    crime spree that I'm on, breaking the law until the break of the dawn
    then I'll break it again, then I'll break it some more
    (mc frontalot you're so hardcore)
    crime spree that I'm on, breaking the law until the break of the dawn
    yo it seems like I break it all the time
    (this mc led a life of crime)

    harder than a criminal's supposed to be, most of the
    FBI heard of this MC
    called them up just to check, "this here's the frontalot and I expect
    that y'all are tracking me down, cat n' the mouse
    gearing it up for some chasin' around,
    i mean you name it I done it,
    slandering, pandering, a couple hundred
    unclear samples I rock per track
    FBI's like "we're busy, we'll call you back"
    yeah, if you can find me! leave a trail o' violated statutes behind me
    winding in an impossible wake, cause hard as I am
    I don't think I could take
    prison for even a day. "In that case you should live lawfully"
    too late!

    crime spree that I'm on, breaking the law until the break of the dawn
    then I'll break it again, then I'll break it some more
    (mc frontalot you're so hardcore)
    crime spree that I'm on, breaking the law until the break of the dawn
    yo it seems like I break it all the time
    (this mc led a life of crime)

    Enjoy Ladies and Gentlemen.
