Well the discussion about the video of Catalyst seems to be finished on grp wall. But still there's some question in my mind and im still really eager to know ur idea about that!
I dont mean do u like it or not! Or why do u like it?? I just wanna know in ur opinion, what is the Video telling us?? What does it mean?? Those smokes, ppl with masks and and etc...
I think this video is showing us a kinda fight, right? What do u think??
mania I totaly agree with idea that it shows the world that we are living, just like full of cruel and war and we all try to make the situation better but we justdestroying ourselves!
ali be nazare manam un adamaye mask dar mesle adamayi hastan ke baaese un dud va gas haye sami shodan ke khodeshun mask zaddan vali baghiye bedun mask daran ba una mobareze mikonan!!...kesayi ke tu donya baese in kara shodan va mardom hartor ke shode moghabeleshun vaymistan..
lp mikhad bege ke ma tu chenin donyayi zendegi mikonim!
I think lp just want the world to be aware of these and call everyone to make the world better...(in my idea its the propose of AtS callin ppl for help!)
This is what Joe said exactly:
"When coming up with the idea for our new music video, "The Catalyst," I thought of the end of the world. What would it be like if someone could push a button to decide our fate? What would it feel like if we accept our fate in the moment of devastation? How would we celebrate our one final living moment?"
so I still think it's mainly trying to show an end, and all of the unusual scenes we see in the video are there to make it more abnormal, to look more like a final moment, to add up some tension to it, and of course, to make the video more artistic and interesting...
but I must admit, I hadn't paid much attention to those people with masks, I'm not sure who they are, for me it's like a flashback to Mike's Glorious Excess character, but looking back at Joe's comment on the video, I think they represent the "someone" who's going to "push a button to decide our fate".
Yeah zahra , u described it in go0d way. And im agree the this is one of the bests!
Btw! Guess what ppl?? My mom saw the video and she just told it was one of the Video Clips she saw ever!
And then, she asked me to give the download link of this video to her. Cuz she wanted to share it on Google Reader. And she did it!!! Actually i gave her some pics of the video to attach her post! Ya she really loved it! :P
