  • Comments: Unlike my first video (found at, I actually put a little thought and planning into this one.

    I've seen the different videos that were out there for Metallica's "Turn the Page", and yeah, they mostly had Cowboy Bebop and Trigun tags onto them. However, they never really had the action or drama that was involved with both series. Seeing as how the song itself is pretty serious, I figured I do things my way and the video that I really wanted to see.

    In making this video, I started using Adobe Premiere. But, my computer was giving me problems on the playback, so I switched it over to Sony Vegas and haven't had any problems. It was definitly a little different than Premiere, but once I figured out where stuff was, it got to be pretty easy.

    Before I continue to babble, I want to thank my friend annonymous from annonymous for letting me borrow his DVD's in order to make this video. As they say, "You da bomb, Annonymous!"

    Anyway, since I have the Sony software package, and I wanted to enter this video into a competition in my area, I had to shorten the song to 5 minutes or under. So don't be surprised if there are a little audio glitches in the music (for those of you who are reading this, that is). After I got the song down to about 4:40, I went ahead and starting putting clips together. I had already written down the lyrics to the song, numbered them and then decided to match each an appropriate clip to the lyric in the song. This really helped me keep consistant. Of course, I let myself have some flexibility and changed what I felt would be a little better when it came time to enter in certain clips. I can also say that after this project, I fell in love with markers in the editor. The markers really helped me when it came to timing certain actions in the clip to the symbols chimes in the song (Trade secret, please share).

    Before I end this I just wanted to say that I am going to stick with the Vegas editor from now on. Adobe is a great program, but Vegas really seemed to work better with my computer, and it also has a little more impressive array of trasitions and effects. Well, for those of you who don't know the song, here are the lyrics, in case you want to follow along:

    On a long and lonesome highway, east of Omaha
    You can listen to the engine moanin' out his one note song
    You think about the woman, or the girl you knew the night before
    But your thoughts will soon be wandering, the way they always do
    When you're ridin' sixteen hours, there's nothin' much to do
    And you don't feel much like ridin', you just wish the trip was through
    ***chorus edited out for due to time constraints***
    So you walk into this restaurant, all strung out from the road
    And you feel the eyes upon you, as you're shakin' off the cold
    You pretend it doesn't bother you, but you just want to explode
    Yeah, most times you can't hear 'em talk, other times you can
    All the same old cliches, is it woman, is it man?
    And you always seem outnumbered, you don't dare make a stand
    Make your stand

    Here I am
    On the road again
    There I am
    Up on the stage
    Here I go
    Playin' star again
    There I go
    Turn the Page

    Oh, woah, out there in the spotlight, you're a million miles away
    Every ounce of energy, you try and give away
    As the sweat pours out your body, like the music that you play
    Later in the evening, as you lie awake in bed
    With the echoes of the amplifiers, ringin' in your head
    You smoke the day's last cigarette, rememberin' what she said

    Woah, yeah

    Yeah, here I am
    On the road again
    There I am
    Up on that stage
    And here I go
    Playin' star again
    And there I go
    Turn the Page
    And there I go
    Turn that page

    There I go, yeah, yeah
    There I go, yeah, yeah
    There I go, yeah
    Here I go, yeah
    There I go
    There I go
    I'm gone

    Like the song says, "I'm gone!" --- Enjoy!
