America, the greatest gangster of all time. With 200 million odd foot soldiers at it's whim and call.
When you fill your car with refined oil remember that it has been paid for with blood and guts, some from your own countrymen, most not.

Nice vid and love the paint, though it does make the trigger stick out like... well, a shiny thing stuck to a black thing.

@Novacastrian, yeah will do.

@jsr Yeah, I know exactly what you mean, but I didn't want to paint the blowgun because I liked the contrast between black and silver.

I think it's only 6, I had to give it the boot even though it had just started. :(

In the Garden of Eden by Iron Butterfly, it's like our national anthem at school.

Thanks for the comments guys.

Very common misheard lyric that one. MrCrowley is right, it is In-a-gadda-da-vida.
Comes in at just over 17 minutes long the version I have - quite a bit longer than the average spudding video.

Nice damage shots, although my earlier concern about painting it black still stands.
I've sprayed a few bits of some of my launchers black in the past, but never more than a few small pieces to try and avoid them looking too threatening, although that may now be a moot point when I'm now deliberately copying elements of firearm design to make them more practical.

Oh I didn't realise, it really does sound like he's singing 'In the Garden of Eden' and the version that I've got is only about 6 minutes long.

Listening to it now, he really is saying 'In a gadda da vida', god knows what it means though.

Nic's christmas present will never see outside of his large property, so I wasn't worried when painting it a threatening colour.

Fair enough, in those circumstances, such concerns are less major.

I don't listen to anything modern unless it's from an old band.

I'm stuck in the 80's, take the occasional trip back to the 70's and listen to the 90's if it's from a band that was around in the 70's or 80's :D

@MrC: Wait a minute, this sounds like rock and/or roll!

I personally don't care when music was made. If it's good music, then it's good music from any decade.

Nightwish, Snow Patrol and Coldplay are recent, doesn't stop me liking them, but I do have a lot of classic artists in my collection.
Classical music can be a few hundred years old, and it's awash with music that is still some of the most powerful of all time.

However, I have to say that rap music is not good music, and there is far too much of it at the moment - it's a someone talking to a beat about breaking the law - whoopdedoo, such musical skill, even I could do that. And the video is half a score of semi-naked women.

Good music is about a combination of elements. Take away a piece without making up big elsewhere, and you won't get playtime on my laptop.
