1. EEEEEEEEEEEE! The song always makes me bounce and now your vid just made me bounce even more. I think I grinned my way through the whole thing. Charlie! I love all the happy little moments like kicking the football (that's proper football) mixed in with the times when trying to live a life of compassion and joy is just HARD. The monkey in the jungle watching the papertrail lyric joined up with the Wall of Crazy made me particularly happy for some reason.

2. There's a problem with your download link, fyi.

3. Did I say EEEEEEEEEEE? *boogies on the spot* *presses play again*

1. *grins* CHARLIEEEEEE! I love the Wall!
2. Le Sigh. I'll have to wait until I get home to figure that out.
3. It's a dance vid, yaaaaaaaaaaay!

Thanks cat!

This was tons of fun! Great song, andf thanks for showing me a more lighthearted side of Life. You used the slower parts of the song very well...hard to do.

Now that's a really interesting comment! Which part of the song would you say is slow? Because it all seemed equally mellow in terms of pacing, when I was working on it.

I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Fantastic! I now watched it four times in a row, grinning sligthly demented and always laughing out loud when Charlie awkwardly hugs Dani. I also like the opening, when he prepares for shooting and the pacing throughout the whole video. \k/\k/\k/

This vid always has that effect on me! Because, yeah, he's listening to music on his headphones, and then it's his badge, the job, and then it's the shooting... when the show gives you such FABULOUS material to work with, how can you go wrong? Yay! Thanks for the comment, podfic_lover!

*waves back* Thanks, serrico. Charlie's little smiley face on his computer screen always makes me happy.

I really liked this--I've only seen the show a few times, and this makes me want to watch more!

Guess I'm a little late seeing this one, but that's a great vid. Being reminded of how great that show was just really drives home how incompetent the suits at NBC are. Just think -- they could have kept Life (and added a show or two) and avoided all the recent late-night programming drama.

Why thank you! If you don't mind me asking, how'd you find your way to this vid? I miss Life, but I loved the way that it ended. Finding closure by breaking every expectation - very Charlie.

Found the vid via a recommendation from an anonymous poster on my LJ. And you're right, though the series easily could have (and should have) continued, there was something appropriate about the closure Charlie achieved.

I really enjoyed that! I loved how surprisingly upbeat it was. The "monkey in the jungle" section was probably my favorite.

Thank you! I'm actually re-watching 'Life', and I'm constantly surprised by how up-beat the show is, despite the horrific events.
