    General Crap:
    OH I do have to say that this is one of my more EVIL ideas... and this was a complete blast putting together too... very fun...

    Compressed to XVid .AVI - no worries about .WMV anymore :D if you have the old .wmv version and youre fine with that type of file, then no worries about getting this one, its the same exact just a .AVI file :)

    OH! and I should warn you that this video DOES contain some spoilers, though nothing that really tells the story or gives it away, but I did take some scenes from the final episode.... also it helps alot to know FullMetal Alchemist and if you dont know it,I RECOMMEND WATCHING IT! its an AWESOME series! go watch it now!

    I've gotten a couple of comments (QC/OP) that say that the song is too fluff for some of the scenes I chose, or that the song is too happy for the GRIM anime I chose... Well, I suppose reminding people that the original song was sung by a guy hanging off of a cross, might help. Yup thats right! at the end of Life of Brian good ole Eric Idle's character was hanging off a cross singing this song to Brian (who was also hanging off of a cross) as his hands bled and he slowly died in one of the most horrible ways imaginable... :) thank you and good day!

    Personally, I thought that this song, and its intentions fit FullMetal Alchemist well :) plus Evangelion had already been done so, I couldnt do that :P lol. Might I suggest someone do an Elfen Lied video to this song?? I would, but I dont like repeating my songs.

    Feel free to leave an opinion if you wish, I always like to hear that people are enjoying my videos! Quick Comments are always welcome :)
