Thank you very much to everyone that has commented and loved this videos.

Every once in a while I like to read through the comments. I'm sorry I don't have time to reply to everyone.

This animation was a ton of fun, and I wish I had more time to create new ones, but unfortunately I no longer live with my parents and have moved on from school.

I make no money off of this video because the copyrights are held by the record label and they were nice enough to leave it up as long as it had a advertisement in front of it. I don't know if any of that money is really going to the Violent Femmes, but I hope so.

I had the privilege of meeting Brian Ritchie at the common ground music festival in Lansing Michigan Last summer. His Mom and Brother stood next to me for the entire show. (I got his and his Mom's autograph on my arm lol)

I didn't get to meet Gono but they played an amazing show and look forward to seeing them live again soon.

I used After Effects to create the animation, and I drew everything in Photoshop except for the farmer and the slide of hell. I forget where I found the farmer but new that was the style I was looking for, everything else was inspired from that. The file size when it finally exported was over 10gb so when I compressed it down for Youtube it lost a lot of the quality. It probably would have been better to use Illustrator or some other vector based software.

Thanks again everyone for your comments and love for this band. They are still one of my favorite bands of all time, and I really enjoyed seeing them live.
