    I have some new pics and videos from my Army son. I'm going to put them together on a music video to send to his friends and a few relatives.

    Gimme some suggestions for songs for the videos. Anything goes - I just need some suggestions to get me started.

    Thanks!! :x:

    dude.. that's probably a little heavy, it's not like the kid's dead heh. But it is indeed an awesome piece. I'll listen to it some time to time to fall asleep with or when I'm feelin emo :hsugh:.

    I'd probably use Hells Bells for AC/DC cause it has always been a favorite.

    I couldn't find an MP3 for some of the songs that were suggested (Hulk Hogan Theme Song, American Baby, Don't Tread On Me, Firestarter). Yeah...the Ballad of the Green Beret might work but not for John (too bad they don't have a Ballad of the Combat Engineer :hs: ). And wtf funeral song, EYOB? :ugh: :rofl:

    So I'm still lookin for a song... :sad2: Keep on posting 'em when you think about something new. I"ve been going through my CD and MP3 collection, but I haven't stumbled on the right one yet.

    The closest I've found so far is "America Town" by Five For Fighting. It's not the kind of tune I was looking for (not intense enough), but the words are dead on (even though they would mean something different than I think the song writer intended, in this context).

    Anyways, I'm still lookin. :hs:

    I don't have that song in my collection, and MusicMatch doesn't have any Metallica songs on their On Demand service.

    If I can find an MP3 I'll check it out.

    wtf thread resurrection :hsugh:
    ___​

    I finally finished John's Christmas video the week before Christmas. It turned out radically different than I initially planned. :hsugh:

    I had emailed a lot of his friends from before he joined the Army and got them to send me pictures of him and them. John literally grew up with most of these guys/girls. In many ways, they are as much or more his family as me. :hs:

    The video size is larger than I expected, so I zipped it up.
