Wow. What a cool video. I can't believe I haven't seen that one.

Did you see my comment at Le R's?

Lane Staley used to rent the top floor of the duplex next door to my dad's house in Seattle. My sister was pretty good friends with him.

What a tragic story his life is. Such talent snuffed out so young.

Hah! Also: it's really cool seeing Open Wounds on your sidebar under the microscope. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

How have I not seen this video before? Wow, it's just stunning! Thanks so much for sharing!

Too bad so many talents meet such early fates. At least their music lives on.

I'm not sure where the animation is from. I just stumbled across this on youtube, and the song is an old favourite. I think someone just overlaid it on the video, but I'm not really sure. But it's kind of cool, regardless of how it came to be.

Oh, and this song is Whale and Wasp, by Alice in Chains, for anyone who wants to know.

@ Matt

I'm definitely enjoying Open Wounds so far.

Great video, loved the music as well. I was drawn into the vision, and one doesn't notice the lack of the written or spoken word.

Elegant movements, beautiful artwork, and having a dragon in the mix didn't hurt either.

Music speaks for itself, and enhances what it touches. Thanks for sharing, Bryan.

Steampunk awesomeness.

I remember that video! Back when MTV actually played music videos.

That just floored me - not only the effects, but such rich storytelling, with so many questions - and I had to find out how it was done.

It turns out it was a video for another song, and you can watch the video in HD, along with a making-of video, here.
