girlisgrey said...

Also, Scott from The Lovemakers...(I've heard you guys practiced near eachother eh?) loves Dragonforce.
They were in SF like a month ago.
interesting........

So. Fee. Uh. said...

The video for Through the Fire and the Flames by Dragonforce is pretty damn awesome. Good stuff.

shanagdi said...

Interesting choices. Adair's father used to sing Angel of Death to me and make me listen to it repeatedly. Fond memories those were. I'll have to youtube or search for three of the videos.

accidentalcharm said...

Sigur Ros is amazing. Their sound is so ethereal and gorgeous! I only have Takk... in my collection, though, so you've motivated me to look into their earlier work.

I'm looking very forward to seeing the premiere of Love Like Winter tomorrow! There's no doubt in my mind that it will be amazing.

Ciao For Now,

Mel

P.S: I'm leaving a few excerpts from New Math: Equations for Living, if only because it's slightly amusing.

Parallel parking = Bumper cars - Amusement park

Escalator = Stairs - Thigh muscles

Infomercial = Information + Commercial + But wait, there's more

Drunk = Freedom of speech + Slurring

Car alarm = The boy who cried wolf + Amplification

Military coup = Recall - The election

Love Is Dead said...

do top 5 shows you've ever been to..

and top 5 shows you've ever played (AFI or otherwise)...

Bandito said...

Everytime someone mentions Dragonforce I giggle on the inside. I knew a guy who liked them. He had long hair. Good times....or something.

Toby said...

LYKE OMG I LOVE BRITNEY SPEARS AND CROSSROADS, LOL LOL LOL JADE. YOU SOOOO FUNNAY. LETS GET DOWN. LOLZ.

shanagdi said...

Windowlicker and Just made me laugh. The Sigur Ros video was amazing. I would have never seen them if you hadn't posted. Thank you! I had to watch the other three as well, though I have seen them many times over.

I'm excited for LLW!! Have fun in NY.

Slayer42605 said...

Ah well right now theres a dj on myspace that mixed a song of you guys and lil jon. I must say, it's really good and it's everywhere. Even the DFers are talking about it. I'll have to hook you up...

Jade Danielle said...

I think my brother would love you for eternity for your top 5 solos. For serious. #2: frick yes. Amazing.

Also, is it really terrible that I've never seen any of those videos.........*hides*

-Jade D.

Arisma said...

"Nothing but a G thang?"

Sexcellent.

[Liz] image is nothing, lobsters are everything said...

hmm I haven't seen Windowlicker. I must download.

[Liz] image is nothing, lobsters are everything said...

oh and if you haven't seen it, you must watch this: http://www.rubberjohnny.tv/

it's not an Aphex Twin music video, but it does use one of his songs. :D

severusheart said...

Interesting top 5's. Sinead O'Conner is definitely a timeless choice. Just saw the new video and it was gorgeous. You guys have a wonderful director. Very stark and beautiful at the same time. Congrats.

Cut That said...

Hmm. That was a fairly fast blog. Are you getting better at this? =p

Mel said...

Good choices \o/
If I was you, I would add some Elliott Smith... maybe Miss Misery [yes, baby... i´m an addicted now - thanks to you]!

Can´t wait to see Love Like Winter \o/

[just to tell you... the other day was Miss Murder's premiere here on Mtv Brasil... it was the first time that we had an AFI video on brazilian tv - except for the Just Like Heaven cover].

black_dust said...

1 Come to Daddy - Aphex Twin
2 Window Licker - Aphex Twin

stella said...

The Sigur Ros video for Untitled #1 made me cry when I first saw it. So beautiful.

3 Arrows said...

kahdeksantoista said...

Ohh, I was bored and I was looking your blog, and wtf, there was a new post! That sounds crazy, but you make me so happy everytime when you write to your blog. I want to say this again, I love you guys, I love AFI. We are waiting for you to Finland. ;>
And I'm waiting for that new video.

Btw, are you reading these comments?

But have a nice day <3
(heyy, sorry my bad english..)

Fluffo said...

You should watch the Squarepusher video, too.

Alyssa said...

FRICKIN' DRAGONFORCE, YEAH!

And Sinead O'Connor.....oh man. Yeah. The GIANT HEAD video. Classic.

Amba Lynn said...

ha im glad you picked what i suggested. Yea, i bet your fav. guitar solos change a lot.


Crossroads? *giggle*

-A!!ison- said...

Uh, I was FORCED to go to school today, but believe me I did not go down w/out a fight. Haley stayed home and watched the premiere of Love Like Winter, she said it was GREAT!!! I'm not finding it on the internet anywhere and I NEED to see it!!!!!!

Amelia Imelda said...

i love you for having marilyn manson and dr. dre in the same list. you are too hardcore.

Jessi said...

Niiice.

=]

Captain Cereal said...

CROSSROADS!!! WHAT THE HELL!?
AND...DR. DRE?!!!
man that SUCKS ass but whatever. I prefer the solo of "The Killing Lights" (yeah- that amazing song that you guys play).
Radiohead's nice.
OMG my friend Zoe will send a letter to the address that appears on theartofdrowning.net (to your band, yeah, that)...she wrote a lot of weird things and I think she actually wrote I thought you were hot and a lot of crappy stuff. Well, everyone knows you're hot. haha. But, just in case, don't get too surprised or something. Oh, and she also wrote "I hope you come here to Puerto Rico someday, we latinas don't bite"....HAHAHA. I'm still not sure if she'll ever send it but I think she'll send it.
Hope you're doing well,
Nathalia :D

AFI_Junkie said...

That's pretty... umm... interesting ...

Especially Nuthin But A G Thang

Yea have fun with that

accidentalcharm said...

Hello, again. I know, it's off topic to the post, but I'll say it anyway...

I just saw your new video and am still in shock. It's just...wow. If I attempt to put this into words, I won't do it justice. I'll have you know you made me cry a bit, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Other than Silver and Cold, in my personal opinion, this is definitely your most gorgeous (if not most tragic) video to date.

OK, I'll stop now. You get my gist.

Ciao For Now,

Mel

afi_fan4life said...

I missed you guys today! I hate school even more now!lol

raining-havoc said...

Good stuff.
Dragonforce always makes me think of that one show on T.V. where the little kids have muscles the size of my head.
Scary thought...

We're male prostitutes. said...

DR.DRE FOR LIFE! <3

boogeyxkatie said...

girlisgrey said...

Wow, Love Like Winter turned out amazing. I love it. But Jade, no more sad videos! I CRIED!!!! Well I mean sad is good, BUT DON'T ALL DIE!!!!

But besides that, Smithy was FUNNAAAYYYY!!! haha and I really liked how you all looked, especially the actual performance part. The girl was pretty!!

Anyways, no more dying you hear?!!!

sarah_says_RAWRR said...

Great choices! Dr. Dre is the shittttt. Same with Radiohead. I also just saw the video Untitled #1 by Sigur Ros, and it was amazing. The song is beautiful. Love the guitar solos also. Slayer is awesome and I looove Jimi Hendrix. I must go check out the others though.

Anyways..
I LOVED the love like winter video! It was amazing. I didn't get to see the making of, (stupid school) but seeing the interview with Luda sorta made up for it :D. I'm sure the making of it will surface on YouTube soon though. Overall, you guys did a wonderful job. Bravo!

p.s. You should do a list of top 5 rappers or top 5 grillz :D
Ahaha.

sarah_says_RAWRR said...

Oh yeah and next video, instead of making Davey or anyone else die, you should all live happily ever after in a land full of unicorns and lollipops :D

Nahh I'm just joshin'.
haha.
The video couldn't have been any better than it was.

severusheart said...

Where were you on the 2nd day of shooting? Your poor brother had to carry the slack. Smith is such a superhero!

Olivia said...

The guitar is kinda hard to learn.

Nnyls is raaad said...

mm; good stuff.

And I must thank you personally for (FINALLY) coming to DC eh?

afi_fan4life said...

None of your own solo's or video's?
yours are all better than those..not that those are bad videos or anything

Mrs. Hoek said...

Ever met C.C.Deville?
He's hella tall and came into my place of work once.
He was pissed because no one knew who he was.
Ha.Ha.

Who are your top five guitarists?

Failure By Design said...

The new video is breathtaking. Absolutely amazing. Wonderful. :)

girlonthewall said...

yeah, good choice on sinead o'conner (can't forget her).... along with marilyn manson's beautiful people.... I SAW THE NEW "LOVE LIKE WINER" VID!!! i saw it later b_cuz i had a game, but i taped it and it is probably the the most amount of originial creativity that trl has seen in a long time... bsides mm.... again, great job, i'll see you guys soon

IAMSPARTACUS [DF] said...

And have you never seen Knights of Cydonia by Muse?

Jen said...

I LOVE that Windowlicker is your top video at the moment.

Looking forward to more 'Top 5's from you. Don't disappoint.
;o)

Somnambulist Prose said...

I love your "Top 5's". Good choices for guitar solos and videos. Speaking of videos, wonderful job on the Love Like Winter video. The four of you never cease to amaze me. Congrats!
Peace out Jade.

~Jessica

the straight edge guitarist said...

guitar solos!!! yay! wonderful choices Jadey.

ps: LLW was RAD <3

Marielle said...

hahaha, i just saw dragonforce live. they were...fast. and their keyboard player had a solo on his keytar. they make me giggle, because they sing about riding their dragons into battle!

Manila said...

hey just wanna congratulate you guys for an awesome video!! nice to have afi on trl again.. gives me another reason to watch tv ^^

iswear2listen said...

One of my fave guitar intros is the beginning of Van Halen's "Ain't Talkin Bout Love."

P.S. crossroads? you actually watched that to the end? lol

kahdeksantoista said...

WOW ! New video was amazing, fantastic.. and I love that song. Wow.. gotta love that..

But why Davey is always dying? ;<

But I loved that video <3

..and by the way, you were hot :D

I'm diggin' the Radiohead as of late~
Thanks Always for your musings!!

mini rex said...

kick ass gimme more!

boogeyxkatie said...

you did live rite??

A Fire on Mars (Stephanie) said...

I find the fact that the toss up for number 3 is between Sinead O' Connor and Marilyn Manson, quite amusing. Love the new video, by the way, but you guys have got to stop dying, it’s too depressing!

ThisxSecretxNinja said...

your amazing. end of story.

[mandy] said...

Also off topic.. and about the "Love Like Winter" video..

In the beginning Adam looks like he's super mad and about to break something, Hunter just looks like he's feeling whatever, and I love how you open you eyes. And Davey's eyelashes are like 29830423 times more noticeable than mine! Probably more than anyone else's for that matter.

Good job though! And thank whoever for putting it up on myspace because I haven't had a chance to watch my tape yet.

Thanks! :D

m said...

i just now got to see all of the video , and it rocks uber hard Jade!!! love it SO much!!! thanks for the great video!!
although i do wish you guys would quit dying. lol just kidding. then it just wouldn't be the same i guess.

raining-havoc said...

Finally got to see Love Like Winter's video (My computer take hours to load anything.)
It's awesome. I'm in love with it. Possibly most favorite video by you guys.
I blame school for not seeing the premier. -Glares-

Skylar said...

Oh, I love that video by Radiohead.

Neptune.x said...

you should try the solo from Stairway to Heaven off the HTWWW album, or Hendrix's 'Over the Rainbow'

so_empty_inside said...

ughhhhh.it aint nothin but a G thang...thats pimppp

Miss Murderess said...

Yeaaah! Dragonforce!!! They're amazing!!!! and Slayer too :)

°»¤£ëªnЮؤ«° said...

yeah gotta hove some oldschool west coast rap in there.

Pookha said...

Ah, Little Wing! Of course, most Hendrix is acceptable.

And Vai. . .yes. (I really wanted to go to the G3 tour a couple of years ago: Vai, Satriani, and my beloved Malmsteen. Though one wag of a reviewer compared it to Amadeus' "too many notes!")

You ought to post a top 5 overblown solos, too. I nominate the Outlaws' "Green Grass and High Tides" Fun, but it goes on forever.

forever_kid said...

hell yeah dude! those guys in dragonforce shred it up!

Shy Girls Win said...

I love Dr.Dre and the Beautiful People. Such awesome songs. And, May I consist...You got me to like A LOT of like 70-80's music. Specially with Daft Punk, David Bowie (Davey), My War (Adam)...So many more. You guys have such good taste in music. Cannot wait to see you all in Albany! <33

Visual imaging of Windowlicker, it's hella wyld.

Sonorous said...

Yeees. Dragonforce.

Bianca said...

I haven't seen Crossroads in years. Steve Vai was so kickass in that. I saw him play G3 two or three years back though, just wasn't the same.

Windowlicker was definitely cool, but I still liked Come To Daddy more.

HelloGoodbye said...

Radiohead, that's freeking awesome man!

Say "Hi" to the guys for me, Jade.

Hanna.

jessica said...

Hey u shud make a top 5 of things u like to do wen ur bored on the bus.....or ur top 5 favorite people that u personaly kno....or ur top 5 reason y it wud be kewll to meet fans.....u shud do those!
thx if u do!
jessica

Brittney said...

Dr.Dre and Marilyn Manson in the same list?? And Crossroads-the Britney Spears movie?? Sweet lol. My favorite guitar solo by far is the one you do in "Dancing through Sunday" Wicked Awesome! My favorite videos are "Love like Winter", "Girls not Grey", and "The Leaving Song Pt 2" (i probably sound like a crazy fangirl but whatever lol)

The caustics won't caustic for me said...

I had to re-look at your older posts haha...

I think Aphex Twin's "Come to Daddy" to be some major bad ass video watch, though I can't argue dude.

Remain chill
Mel

Sarah Dee said...

Ahhhh, I LOVE DragonForce!

Nish said...

wow thats kind of random but it goes together
