Grouchy always does a quality job
 
2003-02-22 08:03:05 AM

Woohoo, Mpeg2 baby!

Now if only people would use Divx istead of the god-awful windows media codec i would be happy.

 
2003-02-22 08:08:56 AM
good song, seemless mixing. Video had cool visuals, but i got a sense of just watching training videos or product demos. Needs more ded folk in it.

Hey, that was cool! But I was missing the cool scene where they use snow plows to bury Iraqi conscripts alive in their trenches! It would had been nice to see the fear in their eyes just as they are about to take their last breath ever. I wonder why that wasn't in the film.
 
2003-02-22 08:36:56 AM
Music videos... woo!
 
2003-02-22 08:49:11 AM
Pretty nifty.. A little bit too long but it showed off pretty much every aircraft that will be in the theatre, except for Navy aircraft. Didn't catch any F14's F18's or A6's nor the navy recon. Oh wait didnt see the Jstars either. Nor the Harrier, or Osprey.

Still pretty kick ass paced video.

Lets see if some geek can name every aircraft AND versions if possible in the video :) I probably could but I don't wanna show of my nerdiness

Our military technology is breathtaking. It's time we use it.
 
2003-02-22 08:56:58 AM
Entertaining, but as antiseptic as many people's view of war. The real thing is not this clean. Not even a little.
 
2003-02-22 09:06:24 AM
Ok I can't help myself.. :) I rewatched it.. I think the Jstars was there, and we did see a Super Hornet from inside the cockpit.

At a glance this is what I picked up

AWACS
Predator Drone
A-10

B1b
B52
B2

F15 C D and E
F16
F18
F117
F22

C130
C5 Galaxy
KC 130

Blackhawk

I wanted to see an apache firing off a salvo of rockets or maybe gun camera footage of apache's when they were gunning down individual troops through their FLIR. Woulda pushed it over the edge though hehe

What's that jingoing sound?
 
2003-02-22 09:11:00 AM
yeah.... "rage against the machine" to promote this war. brilliant.
 
2003-02-22 09:16:04 AM
Swell, more fodder for our resident warmongers to beat off to. Stick to your GI Joe dolls.
 
2003-02-22 09:17:07 AM
Correct me if I'm wrong, but the A-10 was decommissioned, right?
 
2003-02-22 09:33:36 AM
I think they pulled the A-10 once, but they put it back into service because it was just so good at its job
 
2003-02-22 09:44:05 AM
I would care if Grouchy media made more than blatant American propaganda.
 
2003-02-22 09:44:59 AM
war geeks. use whatever tactics are available to drum up support for george's oil war. JACK OFF TO NAVY VIDEOS!!

I showed Grouchy's last video "Die Taliban, Die", to the band who supplied the music (Dope), they thought it was farking great!
 
2003-02-22 09:53:09 AM
Allroy98... That's Outkast singing.

As for the video, I want my 4 wasted minutes back.
 
GCD
2003-02-22 09:53:46 AM
Oh yeh, just to let you guys know, anyone who is in the service LOVES seeing these videos, so if you know anyone, send them the link. They LOVE Grouchy for these videos, the bands love Grouchy for the videos (Dope and Drowning Pool both thought the videos kicked ass).

I have no idea if Grouchy reads these, but if ya do, brother, keep this up - this stuff is awesome!
 
2003-02-22 09:54:36 AM
And there's a real distinct irony to all that, considering the song's not promoting war. Morons.
 
2003-02-22 10:00:07 AM
I don't think it's meant to promote war either, but that's the effect it has. A person can really only pay attention to either the music or the video at one time. The effect is it sounds cool, and you see all the quick cuts of things blowing up (which we now think are cool after years of high-budget, scriptless, movies). In the end, you just think, "bomb Baghdad, cool".

It might be more effective if there was a personal element... showing the people affected, rather than the buildings. And a little more of the target's perspective, a little less cool planes zipping around in the sky.
 
2003-02-22 10:02:42 AM
What? No one cares about the stuff that gets bombed! If a couple Iraqi children have to die so I can whoop and holler at stuff exploding, that's fine by me.

Agreed. This video is weird. It's not going to be a "cool, blow 'em up with bombs and rock n' roll" war. People are going to die. I think military action is necessary in Iraq, but we should leave the propaganda to people who are better at it (North Korea?).

Side note: I work for a section of the Japanese government that has been instrumental in returning several Japanese nationals kidnapped by North Korea back to Japan in the last few months. (Not sure how much of that made it to American news -- not much, probably). Anyway, these people had to undergo extensive "de-cultifying" psychological therapy to rid their minds of the North Korean propaganda. It's pretty scary.
 
2003-02-22 10:16:05 AM
Minkey four days in Las Vegas for those Jap nationals would be fine.

;o)

You guys are so busy hating America that you don't even get the point. I'm sure you'll get enough 'human shield' footage soon enough. Know what else you'll get? Cheering Iraqis as we take Baghdad.

"Jingoism"...it's your type who in 1939 were saying "aww, no way, the jews aren't having a hard time, hitler's just sending them on vacations."
 
2003-02-22 10:34:32 AM
Man I can't wait to see this stuff live on Fox News.
Lone Crow...damn dude thats impressive. Now give me a munitions list that they were fireing and dropping and I'll give you major style points.

Wow, i didn't know killing people could be sooooo cool!

LittleCamel: If the goal was to liberate all the poor, oppressed Iraqis, then hurrah. But... that's not the goal. The goal is to kill a few million people for money. You must live in a very small, windowless box, if you don't see that.
 
2003-02-22 10:51:29 AM
Yes, people are going to die. We understand it.

The sad part is that the man is GOING TO use chemical and bio weapons. That'll change your tune when he gasses a couple of hundred troops in the middle of the night in their beds.

When you see the news video of the soldiers that died in their beds... then you'll know why the rest of the civilized world stopped using mustard gas derivatives back after WWI, and why the French (you know, the recent hippie-like nation that said "hey, war is wrong." Those bastards sell arms to parts of the world that we would NEVER, EVER, SELL TO) should stop buying oil and propping up a madman.
 
2003-02-22 10:53:45 AM
omg - people are going to DIE if there is a war?

errrmmm.....what parts of the world would that be?
 
2003-02-22 10:58:39 AM
Heh, nice video...the only thing its missing are the captions "School", "Hospital", "Friendly", and "Canadian Live Fire Training Facility, Do NOT Fire". Oh and did anyone really pay attention to the soldier footage...sloppy sloppy sloppy, looks like a few recruits have been sneaking jelly donuts into their footlockers.

BTW, Little Camel, sand and snow have a similar consistency and both can easily be pushed into a large hole or trench by a snow plow.

Riiiiight...'war for oil' and all that right? Tellme something MachuPichu, or any of you anti-war types:

If we wanted the oil so bad, why didn't we keep it the first time? Or better yet, we're already staged in Kuwait, and they have ziltch for a military, why not just declare victory?

It's the terrorism, stupid.

Wow, you really are trapped in a small little spite filled box. If America had "kept" the oil fields from the first desert storm, that would have equaled invading with military force for imperialistic means. That is not good for any country to do and ironically is the "reason" for the first desert storm...remember free kuwait, haha. A looooong time ago America decided it would never invade a county with military means for imperialism, so now we push our burgers, blue jeans, and MTV to other countries and hope they'll trade us something useful for it. Besides, Hussein IS NOT and repeat IS NOT a terrorist. He's made his actions and intent clear, he holds a large factor of the world's economy in his country, and he has political power. Those three factors alone take him out of the terrorist group and puts him more towards dictator...or president.

But I'm not in a uniform chanting kill kill kill, so I can be a little sloppy. Anyway, this has been fun, but its time to go be a good consumer. It's Saturday, you know, the best day to be a good consumer. Have you consumed today? Have fun flaming
 
2003-02-22 11:21:55 AM

Screech,

The A-10 is still in service in close-air support. Hopefully it will be around for a while and survive the Pentagon's chopping block. There's a lot of controversy weighing the AC-130's acquisition and maintainence cost versus the A-10's survivability in the field.

It's nice to see someone taking the time to make a video of our soldiers putting some foot to ass. Grouchy deserves a medal.

Well done job.

keep up the good, intelligent posting, kids.

Cool video, but it's really just a bunch of planes....

Why do so many people slag America? Why do so many people around the wold continue to say that Americans are jingoistic uninformed warmongers?

I don't know....maybe, as evidenced by this thread, its because of all the basement dwelling, pasty faced war nuts who sit erect at their monitors, wacking off to war videos, trading weapons and aircraft designations like trading cards, waiting impatiently for the day when they can finally enjoy some real live wartime entertainment --- delivered to them at the expense of a few thousand real people who they've never met, and who will die pointlessly in the name of a poorly justified, knee jerk, unnecessary, and globally unwanted war, guaranteed to do nothing but ensure anti American terrorism for the next 30 years.

I don't know, maybe that's it?

Could be. I've also heard rumors (prolly librul propuganda) that most of these warbirds have never seen the inside of a recruiting center, and likely never will.
