YOU SEE I TOLD YOU.
Yes, I know the quality sucks, but truth be told, I am happy I got it at all. Some stoner buttmunches stole my seat at half-time and right when the little preview thing that I knew I wanted to record came on, their morals got the better of them and they walked right in front of me to return to their shitty seats. I should have been a bitch and made them wait, but I was too excited.
Anyway-- YES. SONG FROM 1998 BY THE SMASHING PUMPKINS! USED IN THE PREVIEW MONTAGE FOR OPENING NIGHT BY THE WARRIORS.
I kind of LOVE how the first shot visible in my crappy vid was the one of Andris looking pensive aka the one I already wrote about that made me pee my pants a whole lot, leaking all over.
For any of you that are deaf/can't handle the crap quality/can't discern a Pumpkins song from a hole in the ground, the song they used is "The Beginning Is The End Is The Beginning" from the soundtrack of 1998's "Batman & Robin". It was the bizarre alternative almost secret remix track at the end. The original was quite a bit more OMG PLUR and was the film's meal-ticket in the ads in terms of what music they used.
Back in the day, MTV took advantage of the fact that Smashing Pumpkins acted as a bitch to Joel Schumacher by making a little montage of their own featuring a pissed off James Iha, bitching about the song they did for the film.
If any of you remember that, I will give you hugs, because I feel HELLA OLD.
ETA: I CANNOT BELIEVE I FORGOT TO MENTION THIS!! KIM, ONE OF MY WARRIORS STAFF FRIENDS?? GUESS WHAT SHE TOLD ME? NOW THAT THUNDER HAS BEEN SURRENDERED TO THE EVIL, POLITICAL POW CAMP ("NAMESAKE", IN JAPAN, I THINK) THEY ARE HAVING A CONTEST FOR A NEW MASCOT.
ARE YOU MESSING WITH ME? I THINK YOU ARE.
I AM SO TRYING TO BE THE NEW MASCOT IF THIS IS TRUE! MY NAME WILL BE STORM AND I WILL GET TONS OF EXTENSIONS AND I WILL PAINT MY FACE AND START WORKING OUT. GOOD MORNING, JOB THAT I COULD NEVER DESPISE, EVEN IF BABIES VOMIT ENFAMIL ALL OVER ME!!!
DUDE. So many people already call me "Warriors Girl" because of my psychotic devotion to the team, and Franco Finn, their payrolled "Hype Man" has told me I look awesome, and I do it damn near every game even though I have to mix potions to make my face-paint because the brand I used at the start went out of business two years ago. DEVOTION. NEED IT.
If it comes down to a voting decision, I urge you to help me because I want this more than Andris, really. It is a shot at something amazing.
If there's a contest!
I CROSS MY FINGERS THEN I SWOON FROM THE EXCITEMENT.
Ok, that is all, for real this time.
