Hello my friends

Today Mattias sent me a copy of th finished single... the finished sleeve perfectly reflecting the mood of the song. as well as Folls like me and Queen the cd also has the Video for Fools.....  The video was made by art students and not a proffesional team so its great that Mattias is encouraging new talent and letting their work be seen.  For me the simple atmospheric video perfectly captures the mood of the single and enhances the song  rather than detract from it as some videos tend to do... For me the project is smooth and seamless... song and video melting together perfectly...   I cant say more as I really dont want to spoil it for people and the release is soon now so not long to wait. Vacuum are a love affaire that will last forever...

Perfect song, perfect video. They supplement each other very well.

Hello, everybody!!! You know it's great that the video was made by art students and that Mattias is encouraging new talent and letting their work be seen, but I think Vacuum won't make such brilliant videoworks as has been doing before. And it's a pity!!! :(
David, don't you know will Vacuum give a performance in The UK? I live in Kiev, but I fear I'll miss their concert in Ukraine during my staying in England for 6 monthes. :(
P.S.: Thanks David and Aniv for information.

I tried several times to see the video on Subspace, but all my attempts were unsuccessful. Sorry, but I can't see the video.

I am sure Vacuum will go on to make great videos again.... That is why we all need to support the single and future releases by buying them... this generates income for the record comapny who can then in turn invest in larger budgets for Video for future releases.. as these things are very expensive to make...and in my eyes this is just one of the problems of Paracy and bootlegging that I have talked about in another topic here....  This video although not made with a huge budget is very effective though and power to mattias for encouraging fresh and new talent and giving somebody this great opportunity.... as for vacuum playing shows in England I think sadly this is a long way of and not likely to happen for some time..

I've just gone to the Subspace website and heard the new single Fools and watched the video too.

FANTASTIC, totally unexpected style, but beautiful and I cannot wait for the album now :-)

The new song seems to be very easy: no symphonic orchestra, no mysterious back-vocal. but it`s something new. I can`t help singing it for the third day: TODAY...THE SUN WILL SET IN EAST!!! :lovevac:

So, here I am with my humble opinion :-)
First of all Id like to thank Vacuum and Subspace for placing this Internet preview for admirers. As well thanks to people who found the right link and informed us.
In spite of extremely small screen size of the video file (I understand that its just a preview and it couldnt be larger) I find the video excellent!
I share someones words about how perfectly the video and the song fit each other and how great the video supplements the song. I agree with people who think so and cant say better than them :-)
I just cant avoid a mention that after viewing the video I began loving the song much more than before (Ive heard Fools Like Me live on Chaika in Kiev last May and I liked it since then). Now I comprehend it and feel its sense much better. Apparently its due to a very felicitous visual sequence wheres nothing unnecessary and the poetical hero is performed as true as its just possible.
I agree with people who consider this video as very stylish. It was an apt idea to place Mattias image onto that flapping textile and make the image waving with a light breeze. And restrained stingy background landscapes are also very suitable and stylish, in my humble opinion. So meaningful looks the final visual sequence with the flame
So, its really perfect video of really new Vacuum. And I hope to find out it much more perfect when I will buy the single (where the video is promised to be) since I hope to see it in full-screen mode then.

Impatiently waiting for the single and album releaze,
Yours Marianna

Shadow, dont you think it was wrong to put here your full description of the video? Some people who havent yet seen the video can be influenced by your post. :unsure: I suppose it would be better to hush up :silent: the flapping textile and background landscapes. But it is only my humble opinion.  :wink:

Why are you unable see the video in full screen mode now? What player do you use? :bigeyes:

I totally disagree with you, Aniv.
First, I didnt put here neither the entire description of the video, nor my complete impression of it.
Second, it hardly would be interesting for anyone to read this topic and to be involved into discussion in case if I just join your epithet Perfect! and say nothing from my own. I guess the topic (and maybe FORUUM itself) would reach a deadlock in case if we obey someones sign like this - :silent: - in innocent discussions. 
Third, just a couple of stylistic devices from the video were mentioned to be more understandable and convincing in my statements. And I see no crime here. So more that in the mailing-list called Vacuum-Net (sign it up if you didnt yet) nobody forbids do discribe anything, which is already published by authors (which is not a commercial secret). And if you read Davids (Haglund) review on Vacuum-Net, youll see his remark about mentioned stylistic device.
(Or maybe Im forbidden while others are allowed?)
Also screenshots of the video, placed on www.vacuum.org.ua today reveal that same stylistic ways not less than my restrained description.

And one more point of yours I cant avoid.

So, WHY NOT?!!! Whats wrong with it??? Id be very glad if my post induced anyones interest to the video. And I hope you understand that if our posts will contain only rapturous epithets it hardly will raise true interest to the matter we discuss. To raise interest one should mention just something in essence of the matter. Isnt it?

And:

Aniv wrote:

Im able to see it in full-screen with all my players. But since the screen size of the file is small, the video in full-screen mode looks awfully (pixel groups are too visible).

So, thats it. Just dont take my long explanations as if I justify myself. I feel no guilt Ive done nothing improper or forbidden. This long post is just to explain my points entirely and correctly.

Yours
