Old timer, Old timer
It's too late to die young now
Old timer, five and dimer
Trying to find a way to age like wine somehow

my new stuff is nothing like my old stuff was
and neither one is much when compared to a show
which will not be as good as another one you saw...
so hell me, i know, i
know, i know

I am an old timer, old timer
it's too late to die young now
old timer, five and dimer
trying to find a way to age like wine somehow

I've met every fool that ever signed
their name up on these walls
in the backs of these beer joints and concert halls.
I been through seven managers,
five labels, a thousand picks and patch cables,
three vans, a band, a bunch of guitar stands,
and cans, and cans, and cans of beer,
and bottles of boozes and bags of pot,
and a thousand other things I forgot.

I thought that I'd be dead by now... but I'm not.

That was INCREDIBLE. Wow. That bit about the comment count ALONE spoke to my soul. What a clever vid!

Seriously, I could not love this more if I tried. This is the theme song for so many of us! :D :D

Hahahaha, that was excellent!

This was the highlight of the challenge show for me. So very relatable, even for someone who hasn't been vidding nearly as long (which is probably kind of sad, lol).

This is beautiful! Great work.

Not a vidder, but this is fantastic.

Those programs look hella impressive and daunting. I love introspective and self referential things like this.

I LOVE THIS VID! It's such a great expression of what it's like to be a vidder (or any creator really) through the years and even though it's obviously very personal, I can relate to it so much. I love how you start out with going through the different versions of Windows and Adobe Premiere and I get SO nostalgic seeing that Adobe Premiere 6.5! <3 I really love how you show all the footage from your vids old and new and trying to deal with not trying to be worse than your old stuff. And the comments!!! Awwwwww that killed me. I also loved how you showed the Vividcon vidshows and the anime DVD shows. And all the fools being vid people!! I died of love. I really loved seeing all those shots of Vividcon and convention locations, just really reminded me of my own experiences so strongly. And the five labels and all the different fannish locations was just so perfect especially with LJ disappearing :( Not to mention seeing the AMV guides made me nostalgic again with how much I learned from them back in the day, thank you. I loved seeing Llamaenc too and all the cans being DVDs was amazing and perfect!! And then thinking you'd be dead by Adobe Premiere CS6 is just too perfect, I love how you circle around back to where you were in the beginning. Just such a wonderful vid, thank you sooo much for making it!
