  • Comments: Finally, the long awaited Sequel, to Bleed American. This video idea came to me, when I was listening to Jimmy Eat World's new single, Pain, and I also had wanted to make a Cowboy Bebop AMV, at least a good one, to the movie. This video is my best work to date; I put more effort into this video, than I did in Great Romances. This video was a lot of fun to make, at first I did it as just a little test video to see if the song would work for Bebop. I first started out with a downloaded mp3 of Pain; it was really sketchy in Premiere so I decided to go buy the Futures Album. I ripped that and edited some more to it, I kept getting more into it and deeper and deeper into the editing, I finally was enthralled in it and had to finish it. I spent about a month on this video, started around the time that the new Jimmy Eat World Album came out and just finished it when I released it.

    A lot of beta testing went into this video. Special thanks to SSJVegeta0609 and Xnod for beta testing. A lot of the scenes I had in mind worked well, they needed a lot of editing though, if you compare some scenes to that of the movie there are a lot of different parts where I put a still frame in to get rid of the characters speaking in the movie. I did a lot more fading in this video, especially near the part where the medical team is on the news. I tried to make the scenes flow well; the fades took the longest time to get right. The blinking in the video was a problem too; it took a long time to get all of the black flashing to go to the beat. Once I got it to go along to the beat it produced the desired effect.

    That is about it for now; I may go more in-depth later, after this has been out for a while. All-in-all this project was about the same enjoyment level as was Great Romances; I don't love Pain as much as Great Romances of the 20th Century. They rank Great Romances of the 20th Century number 1 and pain number 2 on my favorite songs list. I like Cowboy Bebop the movie more than Evangelion, and this video is a lot cleaner then Great Romances which makes it even more enjoyable. If that makes any sense =p

    This is the sequel to Bleed American which was with Bleed American by Jimmy Eat World and Evangelion. I got the idea for the sequel from "2 Hookers 2 Futures" by acomalas of The Flying Cracker Studios. He did an FLCL video with MSI Futures then did a sequel with Mahoromatic with 2 Hookers by MSI. Anyway that's it for now. Lyrics are below. The Intro song and Outro song is Pitchshifter - Stop Talking (So Loud) with The Bebop movie for the Intro and Cowboy Bebop Session 5 - Ballad Of Fallen Angels for the Outro.

    Lyrics:
    Jimmy Eat World - Pain

    I don't feel the way I've ever felt.
    I know.
    I'm gonna smile and not get worried.
    I try but it shows.

    Anyone can make what I have built.
    And better now
    Anyone can find the same white pills.
    It takes my pain away.

    It's a lie. A kiss with opened eyes.
    And she's not breathing back.
    Anything but bother me.
    (It takes my pain away)
    Never mind these are horrid times.
    Oh oh oh
    I can't let it bother me.

    I never thought I'd walk away from you.
    I did.
    But it's a false sense of accomplishment.
    Every time I quit

    Anyone can see my every flaw.
    It isn't hard.
    Anyone can say they're above this all.
    It takes my pain away.

    It's a lie. A kiss with opened eyes.
    And she's not breathing back.
    Anything but bother me.
    (It takes my pain away)
    Never mind these are horrid times.
    Oh oh oh
    I can't let it bother me.

    I can't let it bother me.

    It takes my pain away.

    It's a lie. A kiss with opened eyes.
    And she's not breathing back.
    Anything but bother me.
    (It takes my pain away)
    Never mind these are horrid times.
    Oh oh oh
    I can't let it bother me

    Glitch /Pixilation Fix, for anyone who has had problems with this video
    I have just started to have problems with my vid since I've upgraded to Win XP, but I figured out how to fix it. I just have no clue what caused it, I'm Confused Anyway, what you have to do to fix the little glitches in the video, most show up near the bottom of the vid. Get a Version of Xvid that let you change the FourCC encoding of the video, such as if it decodes with DivX or Xvid, and change the FourCC decode to Xvid. You can get a Version of Xvid, that lets you do it, here http://www.divx-digest.com/software/xvid.html
    Download either Koepi's Binary or Nic's Binary Xvid. This will fix the video problems. This worked for me, if it doesn't work you can always E-Mail me or contact me Via AIM at DaCoolGohan on AIM or brendanjeffrey@cinci.rr.com for E-Mail. Anyway, if I do get a download server up anytime, I will post the fixed encode and/or higher quality version of the video.
