Three fans with a handheld video camera documented their trip to see Dragonforce in Houston, TX. The resulting “rockumentary” is portrait of adolesence and fandom. You probably don’t need to watch more than a few seconds of this to get the idea, but the point at 5:42 where one kid shows us “the hand that touched Herman Li” and another excitedly details how keyboardist Vadim Pruzhanov wrapped his arm around his shoulders is AMAZING. The "rockumentary" can be found entitled "On Fandom" at the following location: http://www.thedeciblog.com/

It sounds like post 1 was originally written in some foriegn language and horribly translated. I'm guessing "Francis" used something like babelfish or something. Anyways, Dragonforce is growing on me. I'd like to see them live. I'm not a fan of the vocalist, but the rest of the band is killer.
