Wow, just wow. I watched about 2 minutes before it got completely annoying. I'm going to politely say it certainly isn't my cup of tea.

The fact that he took the time to write some code to help him in his efforts and then go about splicing everything together all based on a dare.....

I'd hate to see what he'd do if someone said "go screw yourself."

Yeah I'm all for people making the edits they want to make, but I see no merit in edits like this. There is no intent, there is no audience, there is no narrative, no story. It's literally butchering a film to tiny pieces and leaving the pieces for someone else to find. It seems like the product of a mental disorder rather than a labor of love.

Did you read the interview with the editor? He goes through his inspiration and intent. The over 272,000+ views his edit has so far (although, I'm sure very few watched the whole thing) and the several articles written about it is the audience. And the way he describes Wizard of Oz - the detail of the background scenes and in the sound mix and such - it's clear that this was a labour of love.

Although having said all that, I'm pretty sure the guy's a little nuts.

I didn't go through the whole article, no. I just skimmed after reading the basic summary. And I won't hold anything against anyone who does, or the editor, or viewers. That said, I will not even attempt to watch it, it sounds like something I would not enjoy at all and I was trying to convey how confused I was/am that the edit was even conceptualized, let alone executed. I see these sort of edits as a weird corner of the fanedit community and I've accepted already that I am just never going to understand them. My apologies if I offended you or anyone else with my personal opinion.
