Lyrics
No one knows what it's like

To be the bad man

To be the sad man

Behind blue eyes



No one knows what it's like

To be hated

To be fated

To telling only lies



But my dreams

They aren't as empty

As my conscience seems to be

I have hours, only lonely

My love is vengeance

That's never free



No one knows what it's like

To be the bad man

To be the sad man

Behind blue eyes

So creeeepy, so goooood. I love how you've captured the claustrophobia of the film, and such a perfect, perfect song choice. What a great vid.

*high pitched noises!* This is paranoid and oppressive and perfect and I shall be back later with more detailed feedback but suffice it to say I absolutely love this and its unexpected POV. <3 <3 <3 <3 Thank you!

I am back and really I just have more and more love for this every time I watch it. Thank you so much! Creepy and unexpected and funny and clever and really, this is all good things. <3 <3 I love the opening, with the screens flickering with the guitar, and how that's echoed changes in computer screens and data, almost like the pulse of a mechanical heartbeat.

And the cutting is just gorgeous and perfect. Again, thank you so much!

You are very welcome! I had a good time making this for you and am glad we had similar opinions on the fun of choosing a humorously (in)appropriate song.

I like your observation about the flickering screens - I hadn't noticed that, but maybe did subconsciously? Sometimes clips just feel right one way and only later does it make sense why.

From: [personal profile] streussal
THIS IS HILARIOUS! And also creepy and kinda sad. Oh Hal.

The first "BEHIND BLUE EYES" with the shot of Hal's red light VIDDER I CAN'T STOP SMILING oh god i am literally giggling

"my dreams aren't as empty as my conscience seems to be" is a weirdly perfect line for Hal

1:09 with the robot turning on freeeeeeee with its arms extended LIKE HAL JUST WANTS A HUG

ROCKIN' MUSIC SECTION OF MURDER

The music slowing down at the end while Hal is dying, like how his "daisy daisy" song slows down in the actual movie. So good.

This vid is SUCH a treat, I love it! Your editing is incredible -- right off the bat I knew the song would get me but you drew so much expressiveness out of this film's sometimes-sterile look (and, I mean... HAL's static-by-nature interface). It was the best balance of semi-morbid humor and all my bottomless HAL 9000 emotions coming out to play. (And the crew!) The end in particular is absolutely wicked and totally perfect.

If I did not thoroughly freak out enough when you showed this to us last week, LET ME DO IT AGAIN. This is so incredibly good, genius concept, and fantastic execution. Awesome use of the stark imagery of the movie, great editing, and I am not sure I've ever both laughed so hard and felt so creeped out simultaneously. And the end, the end is INSPIRED. Excellent job, and I've never love HAL so much, poor buddy.

Wonderful remix from HAL's POV. Really brings out the paranoia and the pathos. Loved it.
