This video contains spoilers from the movie Cowboy Bebop: Knockin' On Heaven's Door. Be thou warned.
I started this video back in June, then had to go n a wekk-and-a-half trip and left it unfinished. When I got back I kind of forgot about it for awhile. Then I decided to start making a video for AWA Pro, but this video kept bouncing around my head. I decided to take a break from the Pro video to finish this and get it out of my head, and ended up staying up until 4:30 AM with the final exporting and encoding and everything.
The video is, like many of my videos, a story-vid of sorts. It portrays Vincent as a soulless, heartless, malicious bastard, and follows how Spike tries to stop him and make him pay for the suffering he's caused. Takes him a few tries, though. :P
The song is about an arsonist getting a taste of his own medicine, and I thought the theme resonated well with Vincent.
The title comes from the lyric in the song "Gonna make that bastard sing". Here are the rest of the lyrics, although they are not always closely followed.
Someday he's going to wake up in a burning house and wonder what to save and wonder who to blame
Someday he's going to wake up in a burning house and wonder if he got burned if it looks the same
Someday he's going to take stock of sleepwalking days, silver prints and sutured pages
Someday he's going to take stock of the sleep he lost when he tied knots and he pulled the strings
He only heard you
When you were lying
You want to make that bastard sing?
His only trade
Wish he never turned the lights out
Oh, and one note. I was the first person to use Jawbox on this site. >___
