This Will Destroy You
Rick Grimes Tribute Video


"It was all for you, right from the start."

WATCH THIS. Watch it now if you're a fan of The Walking Dead and especially if you adore Andrew Lincoln. I tweeted this video a couple days ago and I went back to YouTube to watch it again just now. I can't get over how good this one is, this showcase for Lincoln's incredible talent. He doesn't get nearly enough recognition, or any recognition at all except from fans, and that is all sorts of wrong. He is one of the greats, one in a small number of actors that really make me feel deeply for their characters. There is no arguing how talented he is. Andrew never fails to deliver something special, something inspiring, something captivating, something truly moving.

This video makes me really want to get going on creating a page here for Walking Dead videos, which I wanted to do years ago. I think it's been quite a while since I even posted a fan video. It's the easiest thing to do, just put up a link, a few words about how I love it, and then publish. I never seem to find the time, though. These are few and far between, and even further between for the long posts, but those somehow get more attention from me.

Anyway, enjoy. Or, if you already watched, I hope you enjoyed it. How could you not, with it being all about Rick and that beautiful, poignant music that crescendos with moments perfectly chosen? Tears started for me after the third time I watched it. Your results may vary. ;-)
