There's A War Going On For Your Mind
There's a war going on for your mind
Media mavens mount surgical strikes from trapper keeper collages and online magazine racks
Cover girl cutouts throw up pop-up ads
Infecting victims with silicone shrapnel
Worldwide passenger pigeons deploy paratroopers
Now it's raining pornography
Lovers take shelter
Post-production debutantes pursue you in nascar chariots
They construct ransom letters from biblical passages and bleed mascara into holy water supplies

There's a war going on for your mind
Industry insiders slang test tube babies to corporate crackheads
They flash logos and blast ghettos
Their embroidered neckties say "stop snitchin'"
Conscious rappers and whistleblowers get stitches made of acupuncture needles and marionette strings

There is a war going on for your mind
Professional wrestlers and vice presidents want you to believe them
The desert sky is their bluescreen
They superimpose explosions
They shout at you
"pay no attention to the men behind the barbed curtain
Nor the craters beneath the draped flags
Those hoods are there for your protection
And meteors these days are the size of corpses

There's a war going on for your mind
We are the insurgents

Oh wow. Gorgeous, powerful and I find somehow very telling about Batman (especially those movies). The editing was very very sharp as well. I've watched it about three times now and I think my favorite... part? idea? is that Bats despite being a part of the vid is very much a background character in it. Also the lovers take shelter was perhaps even more powerful with the joker/bats in there.

Wow. *watches more*

Thank you kindly.
i was always like this: foreverbionic on August 10th, 2009 11:08 pm (UTC)
Wow! Your editing is fabulous and amazing and sharp. There's a lot here to think about, and a lot of it too quick to catch on a first viewing alone. Wonderful stuff.

Thank you ever so much for watching.

G-d, I love the Flobots and I love this vid so freaking much. I'm very, very interested in possibly seeing what I could come up with in the way of analysis for it in the next round of vid_commentary. How would that grab you?
Cherry: batmancherryice on August 11th, 2009 05:00 am (UTC)
The Flobots appear to be made for vidding. I'm so glad that you liked it, and I'd be absolutely honoured if you did a piece for vid_commentary.

Thank you ever so much.

Whoah! So powerful and so much intense, intricate editing packed into such a short space. I really love this - to be honest I love this worlds more than i did the actual film. ;) Definitely going to have to watch this again. I have a feeling it's going to be one of those where I catch something new every time. Very awesome!

This was so interesting! The editing was very sharp and compelling, and I especially loved the intercutting you did of Maggie's character--chilling!!!

Thank you ever so much.

that was pretty freaking cool. I love the way the clips you juxtaposed with the tragedy displayed in the pictures. did I mention the cool part? a very powerful piece. does a great job of reinforcing the message of the song.

Brilliant editing, this is very dense. Well done.
Purpleyin/Hans: longingmissyvortexdv on February 28th, 2010 12:16 pm (UTC)
really good choice of song and love the fast pace, flickering through all that is going on

I just wanted to say that, no matter how many times I watch this vid, my mind is blown every single time.
