First there was LA Style and their early 90s techno hit, "James Brown Is Dead".
Then there was NoN.D.E. Films, who made the brilliant and hilarious fan
parody "This Is Otakudom"
Then there was me, who remixed "James Brown Is Dead", threw in audio clips
from "This Is Otakudom", and came out with
Otakudom: The Song (I'm Not Gay!)
(yeah, my nomenclature's just SO original,
isn't it? you can get an MP3 of it by following the link -- nowadays I think the
song alone is better than the video).
A few days later, I put the song I'd made and the footage from "This Is
Otakudom" into Windows Movie Maker 1 (which was all I had at the time) and came
out with the video that is the subject of this page.
This was my first video ever, which explains why it just isn't that good.
There's not much more to be said. I was hosting this video on this site until
I released "Haruko the Superfreak", at which point I had to drop it to make room
for the new video (TCNJ only lets me have 50 MB of webspace, but I'm not
complaining, because that's probably better than a lot of other colleges). If
you want a copy, IM me at VulpesSquared... and make sure you have something
that can play .WMV files.
I have a much-improved, redone-in-Premiere version of this video sitting
unfinished on my hard drive right now. Knowing me, and considering I really just
don't feel like re-doing the video anymore, it'll probably remain unfinished for
a good long while.
