This is so old as to have almost become kvlt by osmosis. This doesn't make the music any better, but it does help in the making-excuses department. When I got started, Linkin Park was a disease in AMVs that had not yet become the roaring, all-devouring plague that they turned into by the middle of the decade, and this video kind of shows why; short, not especially complicated songs that are easy to videograph. So, I started with one too, like everybody else, because it was a two-and-a-half minute project that would allow me to work from what turned out to be only 22 minutes of subbed VHS footage (none of the stuff from ep 1 actually made it into the video) without a) tearing my hair out; b) including stuff with subs on them like a noob; or c) having to figure out some lolpro way of getting around subs in a consistent fashion. Path of least resistance wins every time.
