    Hey guys. It's been a while since I've posted in these parts, but I just finished editing together a video to music that I really feel I need to share. I've gotten a lot of positive feedback from it so far and hopefully will here too. It's not Star Wars related sadly, but I would consider it a fan video, being a huge fan of the Smashing Pumpkins.

    Anyhow, I'd really appreciate any feedback, comments, questions, or just discussions on the subject matter:

    WARNING: Not suitable for children.

    Moderator note to expound on the above: The content he warns about is news footage of gore wounds from a conflict-torn part of the world. I'm allowing the link to remain in the name of social progress or comment or something, but... yeah, view at your own discretion.

    I didn't really find anything of value in that video. Just a bunch of news clips cut to the beat of, and with no clear connection to, a Smashing Pumpkins song. sorry but i dont get it.

    That's unfortunate..

    Fair enough, there's been a pattern of about 2/3 of people really get it, and the other 1/3 miss the point completely. What I'd suggest is reading the description of the video (which I'll post below as well) and reading the user comments to fill in the gaps. If that doesn't help, let me know and I'll try to explain it in more detail.

    Video Details:
