Made a Flash Musicvideo/animation based on the song "Cows With Guns" by Dana Lyons, so if anyone wants to take a look it you will find it on the following addresses:

Or under the "Work" section at:

Not going to tell you what it's about, but the title says some of it.
So I hope you'll like it, and tellme what you think.

I've always liked that song :)

Maybe I'm the one who's been missing out all along, but when mr. guru is reading books by the "revolutionary veal", I thought that was a pun on the the author of the books being an animal, not the the man-face on the cover in the animation?

Ah well.

I think the cows marching with the green tree passing by is overused for what it's worth, there are some scenes using that, that I think should be cut up into seperate more action-filled segments.

Overall I liked it. It's a fun song, and it's a fun illustrative music-video. Hooray.

in the song it says:

He hid in the forest, read books with great zeal
He loved Che Guevera, a revolutionary veal

So personally I felt it natural he was reading a book about Che in that particular scene, but for what I know both of them could be both right and wrong. Think it's more up to the listener. :)

The marching scene I must admit I agree a bit with you. ;) But I decided to keep it that way cuz I felt that it was most natural to have them marching on while swearing to fight on. Felt it kept the film more together as a whole. And hey, saved me some producion time ;)
