I've been offered some help by twisted_lil_punk and kitty_pride_shadow_cat ( I guess I'll just call her kitty from now on :-) ), so they're each going to make vids for one or two of the requests. Sorry if the people who requested them wanted only me to make them, but I like twisted's work, and kitty has also made vids of her own before.
I've got some ideas of my own which I'll probably fit in between the requests.
I've been getting some great song ideas from you guys, so keep 'em coming. Comments posted on this blog are anonymous unless you write your name at the end, so please don't be shy. I only ask one small thing of you: when you submit a song idea, please think about how the lyrics would work out in a vid. Songs that mention specific event or people don't work out as well as a song with lyrics that can be anyone, anywhere, anytime, and mean anything. I'm not trying to be picky and will make any vid that's suggested, so if there's a song that your just dying to see as a vid, even though your not sure how it will work, feel free to send it in anyway :-)
If anyone else who has made videos before want to help out, please let me know. I'd usually do them all myself, but the request list is isn't exactly short, and I want to make up for past couple of months where there were no new videos.
I'm in Montreal from the 30th to 2nd, with no internet so you may not hear from me for a while. I check my email every chance I get so keep sending feedback good or (constructively) bad.
Bye and Happy New Year.

I just added a quick funny video called "The Real Wolverine". It's using clips from x2, as well as "The Boy From Oz".
I'm working on "To The Moon And Back" by Savage Garden.

I was fiddling around with some files on my computer and managed to fix the vid for "Standing Still" by Jewel. It's pretty much intact, except that the last twenty seconds or so is a black screen - it wasn't a very interesting part to start off with so it doesn't really matter. The vid is up now.
As well, I was making some short test vids to see if movie maker was behaving and it seems like it is, so I'll try and make a few more videos within the next couple of days to make up for the long wait, and to hold you over until my schedual's a little more cleared up.
I'm going to try and make a dent in that waiting list of requests, so they'll be the songs I'm working on. I have no problem adding on to it though, so keep on sending in your song titles.
I also have a question for you: how often to you check this blog for updates, compared to my site itself? I get alot of feedback from both sources, but I find it hard to update the blog without a new video - there's simply not much to say other than I'm working on it. If a lot of people write and say that they check the blog often, then I'll try and update it more, so please send a short reply :-)
I'll save the rest of what I want to say for the next update.
C U later.
