Struggle 8 GIFS

Purely as an exercise in learning how to make animated GIFS, I used some of the footage I took at Struggle 8 earlier this month, and below are the results.

All of the bands played incredible sets and it was definitely a gig I’ll remember when looking back on 2011. Apologies for not having more footage to make some for each band, it just turned out that the Christmas lights Flood put up around them during their set helped significantly with how the video came out.

Feel free to spread them around

The Good In Me

I guess this goes to show, that moving on and letting go, they don’t always coexist. It takes some time till it sinks in. So now I’ll take all that we had. I’ll turn around and never look back. Now I can see what all this meant, and I won’t forget. You made the most of me, got my head up and showed me not to try to hide everything. You saw the good in me that I couldn’t. And I hope that what we had, was something that you’ll always keep, and that I used to be, everything you thought that you could ever need. But little did I know, through tired eyes it’s hard to show. While I was losing sleep, you were losing hope in me. So now I take it on my shoulders, the weight that you helped me to lift. There’s just one reason I’m still alive, and you were it.
