I was first introduced to Mark Osborne's short animated film "MORE" many months ago. I can't remember exactly why I watched it, my best guess is I was expecting something funny. So obviously, after viewing, I was a little surprised. Still, the Academy Award nominated short is powerful if it fits your tastes. The animation is extremely well done and the story is told well.

ASX - Kenna - Hell Bent
MP3 - Kenna - Hell Bent

If you've seen the film, you know that it relies heavily on its soundtrack. Though the music in the original fits well in context, but the film was also used as the music video for Kenna's "Hell Bent", and upon a second viewing, I've found that it works much better.

The two combine into one of the better music videos I've seen in my limited music video viewing career. My favorite music videos are just like this... a story and a song that could work perfectly on their own but are powerfully impacted by one another. Enjoy one or the other, or both.

I came here because I've just fetched using itunes almost all artwork for my mp3 collection and now i want to save them as "folder.jpg" for each album folder. I've succesfully coded an app to strip the .itc header and output the raw jpg but do you know how to guess for what album (and its location) is that artwork?

If you use Winamp instead it can automatically fetch most of the Album Artwork. Thus no need to save the album covers manually :)
