When is that song gonna start?

It's gonna start in a minute, you just gotta wait.

Start it already.

It's gonna start in a second you just gotta wait
It's gonna!

I kissed your lips and I tasted blood
I asked you what happened and you said there'd been a fight
You said I've been fighting for your honor but you wouldn't understand
I said hold on your honor I'll get ice for your hand

So you been fighting for my honor and I don't understand
But hold on your honor I'll get ice for your hand

You said come on babe let's just make love; the only thing to make me better
You said come on let's just get you out of that sweater
I said I don't kiss losers and I don't kiss winners
And I don't fight for honor cause we all are born sinners

Gargle with peroxide a steak for your eye
But I'm a vegetarian so it's a frozen pizza pie
You tell me that you care and you never do lie
You fight for my honor but I just don't know why

Mary had a little lamb, it's fleece as white as snow
You've got me and I'm just a common ho
But I know what I am and I know what I ain't
So don't get cut cause I still won't be no saint

Gargle with peroxide a steak for your eye
But I'm a pizzatarian so it's a frozen pizza pie
You tell me that you love me and you never do lie
And you fight for my honor but I just don't know why
You fight for my honor and I don't understand
But hold on your honor I'll get ice for your hand

Oh wow!
First of all your title sequence in the beginning was totally cool :)
I've never seen this show but the quick cuts worked super well with the song and made for a really interesting and funky vid to watch!

Thanks. I was amazed at how many times I redid the titles. I could never get the time right, so I'm glad it worked in the end. :)

I want to vid ever Regina Spektor song ever. Seriously. Every vidder should do at least one of her songs. There's so much there to use.

Guh, Nancy! This kicks so much ass. I haven't seen this season because I obviously suck, but this still totally worked for me.

The cutting is marvelous throughout, and the section around 1:41 where you jumped through her expressions just killed me.

:) I really dug this season. I think moving the setting and changing the premise worked great for breathing some life into it.

Mary-Louise Parker is flipping amazing, so I can't take credit for all of it. Her expressions are spot on.

Ahh! That was fantastic! Loved the beginning so much. What a crazy creative thing to do! Brava!

Thanks. I was worried it was too crazy, so yay! it worked!

I think it's particularly great how you used the quieter sections of the song to create these pockets of serenity in Nancy's crazy-ass life...because she is totally a danger addict and so those moments of calm are very rare indeed. When I think about it, the entire vid represents her personality very well -- the herky-jerky jump cuts as she careens along, with these occasional moments of clarity.

I started vidding this a couple days before the finale. I had the first quiet scene in place and I'd hoped there would be an answering one in the last episode of the season. The bathroom scene was perfect and worked.

Nancy is one of my favorite characters and it makes me downright gleeful that her personality comes through.

I love the way you cut this - it's so gorgeous and so precise, and the song choice is absolutely perfect.

Thanks. The jump cutting seemed perfect for the song.

You're really great at making original and "out of the box" type of vids. I love what you did with the titles at the beginning (that was your voice right?). The overall editing really matches the mood and pace of the music. I like the fact that you focused on the vocals with those quick cuts which made the vid look very fast and almost too hard to follow. Think different, think kiki.

Thank you. Sometimes I feel like I go too far.

The speaking at the beginning is actually the track, "Whisper" on the CD before "Your Honor". I thought it was cute and would work for what I wanted to do.

Thank you!

LOL oh man I loved the beginning. You just keep pushing the envelope in cooler and cooler ways. Really great use of jump cuts throughout to make the footage more dynamic. LOVE the zoom out over the vocals around 0:55. What a fun, funky ride.

Thanks. I really like messing around with titles and this seemed like a fun thing to do.

That zoom spoke to me. Seriously. I wanted to be there. :)

Those titles were AWESOME! Wow! *fangirls*

I don't know the show but I found it lots of fun to watch--the pace changes from mania to stillness were particularly compelling.

The song and the show went together perfectly between the mania and stillness.

Very cool--I haven't seen any further than season 1, but I had no problem getting the gist, especially since it felt to me like there was a very tight focus on her internal state of mind through the whole vid. I felt like she, and I by extension, was trying to keep pace with her life, but nearly getting whiplash in the trying. Which made for a lovely contrast with the quieter moments. :}

I was hoping it would work for those unfamiliar with this season on a character level. :) This season was a bit crazy and had a snowballing effect. She's always tried to stay ahead of everything, but she can sometimes get buried. She wants control, but no one really had any this season.

Wow! Your cutting is vertiginous and fits this jagged little pill of song like its Hausdorff dimension but the ending is smooth. I want to know this woman.

Thank you.

This vid started when I was running errands. I had an iceed coffee running around being all adult-like. For an instant I had the thought that it must be what it feels like to be Nancy Botwin, but then I realized being her wouldn't be fun at all.

AMAZING! the cutting makes me feel kind of like I'm going insane. so it definitely captures the experience of being Nancy!

Thanks! It's a great show. I'm hoping that the next season will continue to improve.

I'm really glad I watched Season Four before watching this, because I could really enjoy this vid's context then.

the jump cuts really, really worked amazingly here to show her often manic and reckless approach to life and also to contrast the smiling Nancy (especially undercover) with the tragic Nancy and/or the drug world.

Awesome, awesome job!

Hey, the dl link is out--would you mind reuploading?

Thanks! Nancy flies by the seat of her pants almost all the time. She goes with the flow and does whatever she has to do.

I reuploaded to mediafire ( :)

Only Weeds vid I can ever remember seeing, but this was very well done! You handles the different rhythms of the song great.
