Club Vivid Premieres
[livejournal.com profile] dualbunny's Raise Your Glass (Community) - I like how it embraces everything about the show that makes it what it is. It's like the show was boiled down and poured into the vid.

[livejournal.com profile] sweetestdrain's Notorious (Spartacus: War of the Damned) - I'm a sucker for marching in beat to the music. And for writhing bodies. And for bloody gore. And for gender non-conformity in lyric use.

[livejournal.com profile] bananainpyjamas's Dance Alarm (Final Fantasy XIII) - OMG, the division of mashed up voices was funny and effective.

[livejournal.com profile] frayadjacent's Tightrope (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) - I'm totally biased in LOVING this vid because I helped beta it. And I adore it to pieces. I adore the visuals that were added and there's great care in how the vid was made, if that makes sense. Like, I can tell that the vidder love and enjoyed it.

[livejournal.com profile] bradcpu & son's Firework (Sherlock Holmes) - There needs to be 100% Club Vivid vids to Kidz Bop songs because this is hilarious to me. I hope it's supposed to be delightful and fun because it makes me smile.

[livejournal.com profile] obsessive24's Va Va Boom (Merlin) - THIS IS A CHILDREN'S SHOW? WITH THAT MANY SEXUAL REFERENCES? WOW, I should have kept watching Merlin for the fisting jokes.

kass and [livejournal.com profile] laurashapiro's Scream (Doctor Who) - I love it when Club Vivid vids start out all innocent and fun, then slowly become vaguely menacing and creepifying like this.

[livejournal.com profile] shati's Follow Me (Chocolate) - BADASS. Netflix, here I come.

[livejournal.com profile] hollywoodgrrl's Smells Like Westeros Spirit (Game of Thrones) - Fuck me in a tower with all our clothes on, this has so many onion-y layers that it's new every time I rewatch it. I'm not kidding, I feel like I'm falling in a rabbit hole as I read other people comments and realize new things.

[livejournal.com profile] jetpack_monkey's Let's Go to the Mall (Dawn of the Dead 1978) - I bullied this vid into existence. The absurdity is beautiful. I'm going to be a dick and remix this for the remake, lol. It's a thing that I do in my head to [livejournal.com profile] jetpack_monkey's vids. Mine is an evil laugh.

January
none

February
06 - Brand New Key (Pulp Fiction) - Some people say I've done alright for a girl.
It's my own little take on the movie. I remember watching it when I was very young and wanting it to be more about Mia Wallace, Honey Bunny, Fabienne, Esmarelda, Jodi & Trudi, Raquel, and even the waitress that corrects Pumpkin with flat confidence. I watched the insanely edited version that was on tv, so I fell in love with a horribly cut up and pasted together movie. I watched the VHS of it so much that it warped (the same way my Mary Poppins tape did). My aunt rented me the original version to watch and my mind was blown because it made actual sense.

March
none

April
13 - Spit the Devil (V the Series) - Erica/Anna: firedogs
The series was never as good as when these two were on screen together. There was a sizzle and smolder when they interacted because they were two powerful, willful, strong, intelligent characters on opposite ends of a spectrum. While opposing each other, they were quite similar in their actions, motivations, and emotional status. Together they would have been a flash fire that destroyed everything around them. I only wish that it was possible to watch, therefore, I created an alternate universe where we could see those Ladies of War interact on a sexual and romantic level.

May and June
none

July
13 - Lullaby (Damages) - Ray Fiske's life spent trying to do well.
There has never been a character that filled me with such sadness and sorrow as this one. He never lived his life for himself. It becomes his purpose to make everyone else's life work and to fix the problems of others, but he pushed aside his own needs and feelings. When it did finally address them, the results were not entirely favorable and he spent the rest of his life seemingly crushed under the weight of his own weaknesses like a broken puppy.

August
14 - Bright Star (Bright Star) - Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath, And so live ever--or else swoon to death.
I wanted something delicate and light in the editing and I wanted to capture a mood and atmosphere with it like falling in love when you find it hard to breathe and everything slows down and speeds up like you're dying inside.

14 - Black Dove (January) (Doctor Who) - River Song was a January girl, she never let on how insane it was.
Fuck Yeah River Song and other unconventional aspects of her great and powerful awesomeness.

September, October, and November
none

December
21 - Somewhere Only We Know (Winnie the Pooh) - I'm getting old and I need something to rely on.
I have loved Winnie the Pooh from my first memory. It is like the pain from an old wound soothed.

Total of 6 vids.

My class ended early today and I took advantage of the time to watch VVC DVDs, leave feedback, and make some recs. Look at my productive self. I'm all caught up with my college courses for today, but tomorrow is another story when we get more assignments. College makes me sleepy.

VID RECS (VVC disc 1 - premieres part 1):
[livejournal.com profile] halcyon_shift's VVC Premieres Intro 09 Star Trek In 60 Seconds (Re-enacted by Llamas) - Massive LULZ.

DC's We Are (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) - Calculated action, beautiful overlays, great pacing, and interesting lyrical interpretations.

[livejournal.com profile] bradcpu (and [livejournal.com profile] laurashapiro)'s Hard Sun (Firefly) - This is the vid that knows where I live.

I love the sounds in the beginning and how it just flows into the vid with all the twists and turns. Love the ivory tower. Love it like burning. It's amazing how well it all fits together and feels so right to me. It's like it couldn't be any other way than to see the lens flares at 1:09 blend together. The introduction of the rain is beautifully done and I love how the vid continues while the original footage is of walking away at the end. It's so full of love and appreciation that it bubbles up inside me and makes me smile and feel a bit better about certain things. There is sadness in the vid, like in the 2:20s when they walk away and the weeping, but I'm ultimately left with the crews and happiness.

[livejournal.com profile] jarrow's Learning to Crawl (Battlestar Galactica) - DAYUM, that's hot and I want to make out with it. There's so much tension and sexiness in the tight editing. Beyond the femslash and sexiness there's deep character beats within the vid and that's something beautiful.

[livejournal.com profile] mlyn and Jo's It Comes and Goes In Waves (Varg Veum) - Beautiful use of the source with the beautiful framing compositions and colors. I love the progression of the vid and how it changes into something so dark and violent, yet still beautiful with the changes in the music. The symbolism and emotions are so engaging that I connect with the vid without knowing the source.

[livejournal.com profile] hollywoodgrrl's Marble House (Doctor Who) - The editing and atmosphere is stellar. I think my favorite parts are the use of the watch in the instrumental section because it's so finely edited and heartbreaking. Honestly, the whole thing is edited with great skill.

At first I was reading as the Doctor has the choice to run off in the TARDIS, while the humans have to stay and face the fights. The Doctor plays with humanity, including John Smith, without having to face the darker aspects of it. He can go hands off whenever he wants. The Doctor can deal with aliens fine, but he doesn't stick around for humanity's darkness. That he leaves to us (and Torchwood I suppose). The Doctor leaves humanity to its own darkness. A darkness that isn't supernatural, but coming from within ourselves, which makes it all the more frightening, especially for The Doctor, who wants to love humanity. He just wants to run away from the darkness in our hearts.

[livejournal.com profile] dualbunny's Video Killed the Radio Star (Wizard of Oz - Elphaba [Wicked]) - I don't know Wicked very well, but I still was able to enjoy the vid. The motion and jumpcuts in the editing are great. I love how you take the footage and have us look at it from a bit to the left. The zooms make the footage more interesting and grabbing, while it also has me thinking about the scenes differently in my mind because they look different than I'm used to. It's so fun and even more fun with femslash goggles!

YAY!

A few friends and I went out the other night not realizing that the holiday would effect bars. It was so empty and boring for the first half hour because there were 10 people in the whole place that I played I Spy with a guy down the bar. The owner felt bad, so he gave out free drinks and if it was boring after that, I didn't care or notice.

I made cupcakes today, which is a major thing for me. The first time I decided to make cupcakes I stood in the baking isle of the grocery store looking for cupcake mix for ten minutes. I ended up asking a stock boy where it was. Needless to say, he looked at me like I was made out of stupidity and said cupcakes are made from cake mix. So I've come a long way from that to making cupcake so good you'll suck dick.

VID RECS:
[livejournal.com profile] balistik94's Awakening (The Maxtrix Trilogy) - I love the sense of beat and editing. There's a strong stylization to the effects and use of them.
[livejournal.com profile] balistik94's Exterminating Son (Blade Trilogy) - I'm a little bit in viddinglove with [livejournal.com profile] balistik94. There's an amazing ability to get a feel for the music and the source with the pacing, editing, and just plain coolness inherent in the vid. It has some very cool musical edits.

[livejournal.com profile] humansrsuperior's end. (Doctor Who) - Interesting concept that ties everything together and it fits perfectly. The effects are soft and organic. A whole mood is created with the music, clip choice, visuals, and audio work.

[livejournal.com profile] jagwriter78 and [livejournal.com profile] rhoboat's Anything the Doctor Can Do... (Doctor Who) - EHehehhe, I still have a huge doofy smile on my face from watching this vid.

[livejournal.com profile] ladymajavader's Powrót (The Return) (Multi) - I think everyone will see something a little different when they watch this vid, but it will be beautiful.

[livejournal.com profile] tearful_eye's Promises, Promises (Torchwood and Doctor Who) - Excellent jumpcuts that really create a taped together atmosphere. It's like the pieces of Ianto put back together with some of them covered by Jack.

[livejournal.com profile] thedothatgirl's Venus in Furs (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) - A disturbingly hot vid with great song choice, concept, music matching, structure, and black and white.
kiki_miserychic: A Dinosaur and Kate Spade Shoes Fairytale (Default)
Mondays are now my favorite day of the week. I get up super early (or just stay up all night) to go to McDonald's with my grandparents. There's a group of people from their church that meet at 6am for 2 hours to have coffee and talk. There's usually a dozen senior citizens (I call them cool old people in my head, but that might be offensive...) and every once in a while a younger person comes along. I totally love going. Everyone is so happy sweet. It's pretty much just the people I miss from when I went to church. For me, it's as close as I'll get to going back to church. I take my sketchbook, talk, listen, and drink a hugemongous caramel iced coffee.

The funniest part is how my grandfather goes to the register before we leave to pay. He's the only person I have ever heard of that can run a tab at McDonald's. It blows my mind how he's such a baller that he can get coffee for me, himself, and my gramma; 2 cherry pies for us to split; and an occasional cinnamon roll for my gramma and not pay until later. They were training a new clerk this morning, so when he listed off everything, she turned around to collect the items, but the other clerk explained that he already had his order and he was paying for it before he left. The girl was as amazed as I was the first time I went.

VID RECS:
[livejournal.com profile] croc_rocketfan's The Bells (Doctor Who) - A beautiful opening and bringing the Doctor fully in with the rising of the music. Great pacing and clip choice, as well as interesting parallels and overall progression. It never stops being awesome.

[livejournal.com profile] tallulah71's Hera has Six Mommies (Battlestar Galactica) - A beautiful interpretive dance-like vid about how the 6 women come together to form Hera. Just as Hera is the shape of things to come, I think this vid is the shape of things to come as well. There's an elegance of execution, planning, and forethought. It's a complex and interesting study. The remix track used brings in many layers of the songs all come together in the same way that all the women, Cylon and human, come together in the devastation and culmination of gaining and losing Hera.

[livejournal.com profile] tzegha's Dirty Hole (Life) - Kickass editing, inspired clip choice, and amazing thesis. It's about Charlie, his prison; Dani, her prison; Ted, his prison; and all the things that signify them.

[livejournal.com profile] sapote3's The Test (Torchwood) - It's like there Gwen and Tosh and this vid is the line between them.
[livejournal.com profile] sapote3's Teeth in the Grass (Doctor Who) - While it may shatter any illusions as to how awesome it would be to travel with the Doctor as a Companion, the music matches are excellent and there's beautiful moment in the 1:40s to watch for.
kiki_miserychic: A Dinosaur and Kate Spade Shoes Fairytale (Default)
A handful of long overdue VID RECS:
[livejournal.com profile] charmax's Cry Me a River (Lost and Delirious) - Blissful editing that contains so much pain and love.

[livejournal.com profile] dayln03's Breathe Me (Friday Night Lights) - With such texture and effects, it feels light, yet heavy in a meaningful way.

[livejournal.com profile] keewick's Recessional (Dead Like Me) - Beautiful and understated editing that emphasizes the quiet motion and natural connections.

[livejournal.com profile] kuwdora's Reinvent Yourself (Heroes) - Great motion, use of beat, and pacing.

[livejournal.com profile] special_trille's Twist (Dexter) - A bittersweet mixture of music and source with blissful use of beat and lyrics.

[livejournal.com profile] super_kc's Karma Police (Battlestar Galactica) - After watching 4x01 of BSG, I went back to watch some Final Four vids and fell in love with this interestingly distorted and desolately disjointed (yet connected) look at the Final Four.

[livejournal.com profile] tearful_eye's Back Then (Doctor Who) - Lovely editing style, song choice, and a killer piano section.

[livejournal.com profile] wistful_fever's Four Years (Stargate: Atlantis) - A comprehesive and graceful exploration of Sheppard/McKay.
kiki_miserychic: A Dinosaur and Kate Spade Shoes Fairytale (ashlee ~ neon ~ pj)
I broke one of my resolutions on January 4th. I wasn't going to "be all up in celebrity gossip", but com'on. Britney Spears was taken to the hospital for a mental evaulation. How can I not "be all up in" that?

I almost, almost got to see a real hardcore bar fight last night after the game. One of the guys was two seconds from doing one of those hard chest pokes to the other guy, but his brother and wife settled him down. In hindsight it was stupid to go get drinks when the game was on. Amanda (Noel Fielding to my Russell Brand) and I met up with Marcus and Nikki at the smallest bar I've ever been in, The Joyful Mug.

VID RECS:
[livejournal.com profile] astartexx's Take Me Home (Deadwood) - Harsh song and recolor that suits Alma completely with the melodic editing and fades.

[livejournal.com profile] raspberry_splat, [livejournal.com profile] humansrsuperior, and [livejournal.com profile] leviathan101's Winter in My Heart (Doctor Who) - Perfectly alligned layers and effects that make the vid feel ghostlike.

[livejournal.com profile] sweetestdrain's Growing Up (Supernatural) - It's a giant ball of Supernatural awesomeness with motion, movement, editing, and pacing to die for.

Since a few people have asked for it, I'll post a link to my the girl or the weapon? edit of Michael Andrews' score here as well.

My New Years Eve was rather crappy, so I’m going to pretend that 2008 begins on January 2, so that my year doesn’t start horribly. Please indulge me in this delusion.

I think a softer world sums it up fairly well.
