  • Comments: The title, Troubles in Wonderland, is a weak pun stemming from Alice's name and the content of the video.

    I originally intended this video to simply portray the relationship between Lain and Alice as if they were lesbians instead of friends, which it still does, but I intended it to be happy. However, as I began putting the video together and finding clips that fit the lyrics, I realized just how sad the lyrics really are if you listen to them, and the scene selections I chose reflected that. I noticed more and more that my clips were not all snuggly-wuggly. I originally had a happy ending where Lain puts her head on Alice's shoulder and smiles, but as I listened to the lyrics, I realized that it did not really fit.

    What came out was a video that not only shows Lain and Alice as being in love, but also seems to say that their relationship is having some problems.

    Hence the title, Troubles in Wonderland.

    If you are a die-hard Total Eclipse of the Heart otaku, you should know that I cut about two minutes off of the song because it just felt extraneous and unnecessary. I cut the music-only parts in the beginning and the end. So, if that annoys you, I ask that you please do not flame me in a review, because it was intentional.

    Please note, this is a PG-rated vid. No sex or nudity or anything like that. So, go somewhere else if that's what you were looking for.

    Even though I like some of what I did with this, I have decided to take it down so people can focus on my newer videos. If you really want to see it, though, I know it is floating around on KaZaA. Try there, you may get lucky. Or, in the event you run into me at a con, I may have it on CD (as a basis for comparison if nothing else).
