    I have surmised that the white angel is crying about all the death and destruction. I have a feeling that there's some stories with the whole video, like the dog and kid, etc. But then again it could still be illuminati.

    Only had a chance to watch it just now. I thought it was amazing! Only part I did not like was the baby crying. Honestly everytime I see a baby crying in movies or videos I get like really depressed and stuff. Dunno why.

    That's the standard excuse nowadays for making nonsense and calling it art. And, you're attaching political significance to a song like "What I've Done", which, for me at least, had absolutely nothing to do with politics, but rather forgiving oneself in order to move on with life. There really is no meaning to this video. The interviews clearly state that he shot a bunch of stuff and just went with his gut. There's no telling what's on the cutting room floor that doesn't fit your description.

    It's LP vowing to go further into pornography territory. Chester's directing a sextape titled ''Fuck TheM all'' as a diss to Joe Hahn.

    The video for "What I've Done" was a preposterous, glib attempt to fuse its message to a political context, taking a shotgun approach by including clips that invoked rising gas prices, global warming, and - of all things - 9/11. That's what I'm referring to with "hastily grafted politics." Your commentary only points up the disparity. Why is the song presented alongside images of riot police, starving Africans, and polar bears?

    [The answer is that Minutes to Midnight was Linkin Park's haphazard effort to rebrand itself as a political band.]

    This is something that's common, where filmmakers purposefully overshoot and "find" their film in post-production. This process doesn't mean that the resulting film is without meaning, only that it lacks the more traditional planning of narrative cinema.

    As a follow-up, what would you say is the "meaning" of a video like "Waiting For the End" or "Faint"? This isn't some sort of rhetorical trap. I'm curious to know how you describe "meaning." I think it's a terribly slippery word.

    Who cares? It's not in the video. Maybe the footage on the cutting room floor featured other potent images of the aggrieved. Maybe it featured a badger using a gloryhole. What matters is what's in the frame.

    I love the video but I can't exactly figure out what it's about either.

    I was watching the FM music video and the music video for Best of You by Foo Fighters and they are very similar in terms of feel and the way it was shot. With performance shots of the band and various, what seems like random, cuts of different people. Only real difference is that FM doesn't include stock footage like Best of You. Either way, FM is a very solid video and it will stand out as one of my favorites they've released.
