Today was Tricia's last day at work. It was all right until about the last half hour or so, when we were working on this one dog and I realized that it was the last animal we'd work on together. It was this bloodhound with a cheek abcsess who was dripping pus from its face and shooting diarrhea all over the table. As we were knocking it out for surgery, we sang our "Spay Pack In An Autoclave" Christmas song that we wrote together about six years ago.

Fridays are going to suck. Thursdays are going to be weird. They won't suck, because Kim and I are still going to have our Thursday get togethers, but it's just going to take a lot of getting over. It's just Kim and I now. Like Kim said when we found out Tricia was leaving: "When you've only got two good friends, and one of them leaves, it's a big deal."

I don't respond well to change.

Oh, all right, so anyway I promised myself--well not promised, really, just sort of considered it--that I would not make any more music videos from Advent Children or FFVII, because really, how much more can you do? The same scenes get sort of old after a while. And after I did "It's Raining Men" I figured I'd just about out-done myself with AC and couldn't do anything more with it.

But then the perfect--PERFECT--song came along for Advent Children, and I couldn't not make the video.

I mean, really, the song is perfect. Every line goes. The song is a tear-jerker and you'll hear why. I'm not much for emotional manipulation, and I really try to avoid it, not to mention that I didn't want to trivialize the song (which is very likely about a real person) by using it in a video about fictional people, but then I said, you know, the song is art, and the movie is art. What's it going to hurt to stick them together?

If It Be Your Will, 22MB. Really kind of a small file, comparatively, and kind of a short song.

Oh, hell with it. It's Raining Men -- Advent Children. 24.5 MB.

Red Right Hand - Nick Cave, used for a Sephiroth tribute. 37 MB.


If you do download any of these to watch them, please don't hesitate to let me know if you liked them, or if not, where I could improve. I do know that the editing is jerky sometimes, most especially in Red Right Hand. It wasn't until It's Raining Men that I started to really get a grip on doing AMVs. (I just stopped myself from writing, "That meant something, damnit!") But if you download, lemme know! And feel more than free to pass them around. That's what AMVs are for, right?

If you only want to download one (understandable,) then do If It Be Your Will if you're in the mood for a melancholy, saccharine one. Do It's Raining Men if you want a giggle (I have to say, I really do amuse myself,) and do Red Right Hand for the campy badassity of Sephiroth. That one, by the way, was made before Advent Children was out.

And that's it for now.
