    FLCL has to be one of Gainax's better releases, and is possibly the best medicine for people who find Evangelion too convoluted to even enjoy. FLCL has an excellent mix of action, drama, comedy, and totaly nuts footage that lets AMV directors be very creative.

    I tried to capture the zany sci-fi action going on in FLCL, and keep it very synced up with the lyrics. The Science Fiction Double Feature Picture Show cover by Me First and the Gimmie Gimmies varied in pace enough for me to fit in both fast-paced sequences and more somber shots. I find the cover to be even better then the overused origional song.

    All footage is ripped directly from my own personal copies of the region 2 DVD's, and converted to DV format for easy editing.

    For those not familiar, here are the lyrics. Try to follow along with the shots, and you can see how amazingly well some footage goes to the song. Sorta like a Dark Side of the Moon/Wizard of OZ deal going on :).

    Micheal Rennie was ill the day the earth stood still
    but he told us where we stand.

    they got caught in a celluloid jam.
    Then at a deadly pace it came from outer space
    and this is how the message ran

    I knew Leo G. Carroll was over a barrel
    when Tarantula took to the hills
    and I really got hot when I saw Jeanette Scott
    fight a triffid that spits poison and kills
    Dana Andrews said prunes gave him the runes
    and passing them used lots of skills
    but when worlds collide,said George Pal to his bride,
    I'm gonna give you some terrible thrills, like a
