    LYRICS:(such as they are):
    That boy needs therapy. (psychosomatic)
    That boy needs therapy. (purely psychosomatic)
    That boy needs therapy.
    Lie down on the couch.
    W-What does that mean?
    You're a nut! (You're a nut!)
    You're crazy in your coconut!
    That boy needs therapy.
    What does that mean?
    That boy needs therapy.
    I'm going to kill you!
    That boy needs therapy.
    Granny gazoot! Let's have a toot! And when I count three...
    That boy needs therapy.
    He was a white as a sheet!
    And he also made false teeth.

    This is just a quick video I made fer shits 'n' giggles. No real point to it, except to be silly. I like the intro, though.
    My friend Chris sent me this MP3 at the end of November, and I totally fell in love with it. If you like Fatboy Slim or Handsome Boys Modeling School, you should check this group out.
    * I got started on this when we'd ripped the footage for my "8.6.82" video, so we only had episode 2 ripped, but that was okay. I don't think something like this calls for a wide range of footage. I really dig the opening with the rising buildings, though.
    *(I noticed that lipsync is kind of frustrating with anime - most of the time you only have three mouth positions: open, half-open, and shut. While this makes sync easier, it's also MUCH less convincing.
    The only line in this that has any sort of intricate sync is Misato's "You're crazy in your coconut!", because she had "oh","t", and "a" mouth positions in that scene. I like how that line turned out.
    *S hinji's mouth doesn't move on the second "what does that mean?" but I think his facial expression works fine.
    * I had a lot of fun trying out the "echo" layer effect when the "you're a nut!" line echoed. I'm probably going to use that in a serious video sometime.
    * Also had fun trying out the digital effect on the record scratch sound. I dropped to black when the sound would stutter, then ran a Swirl video effect filter over a duplicate video layer, and dropped the opacity in and out to match the timing of the record scratches.
    * This song is actually about 6 minutes long. I cut out some dialogue at the beginning before the music kicks in, and cut out everything beyond the "explosion" sound. This is just the first section of about 4 or 5 sections in this song.

    Hopefully I can find a host for this file. It's too large to host in Big Big Truck's temp directory, at 20.1 MB :/
