I got my grades for last semester and they’re not bad considering it was the first full semester I worked during, but I got a B in Mathematics for Elementary School Teachers and Art History II, and an A in Introduction to Biology (with my time consuming lab grade smushed in) and Introduction to Mythology. The sucky part is that I was .78% away from an A in Art History, not even a whole percent. Oh well, I thought I was going to fail Art History and I was worried about my Mathematics and Bio finals, so it’s all good.

I took a slight break from the internet over the holidays to spend time my family and friends. Thankfully, the family didn’t fight as much as I thought. All my Christmases were great and my New Years was awesome too.

I decided to finish the season one Dexter character vid if it killed me. When I finish, I’ll slowly go through my backlog of lj posts, emails, messages, etcetera, so hopefully I’ll be caught up soon so to speak. I don’t have much of the vid left either; just some tinkering, beta-ing, and then saving. It’s crazy and weird, so I’m not sure it will go over well. I’ll have a rough cut soon if anyone wants to check it out and give me their opinion...

I’m behind on feedback because I don’t watch vids while I vid, but I do have a rec from before I went into hibernation:

VID REC: [ profile] bradcpu’s My Little Drum - A House vid with amazing music, just the right touch of Christmas, sadness, happiness... It has a nice flow and great clip connections, overlays, and it takes the whole first season and presents it beautifully.

Because cool people like me wait to do the end of the year meme things, I give you my first end of the year vidding meme:

My favorite video this year (of my own):
I’d have to say that my favorite is SexyBack because I can watch it without cringing every 3 seconds.

My best video this year:
It really depends on the criteria for best, but I’d have to go with I Hear The Bells because I’m quite proud of myself for having completed it and having it encompass so many parts of the show.

Video most underappreciated by the universe, in my opinion:
Peace in the Valley because when I was making I thought it was freaking great. I realize now what I was trying to do stayed in my head and didn’t make it to the actual vid.

Most fun video:
The McKay Song because seriously? How is doing something that silly not fun?

Video with single sexiest moment:
I was going to say all of SexyBack, but I changed my mind when I watched Gone Daddy Gone and remembered that flash of Jeffery Dean Morgan’s stomach when he fell down. It’s wrong to think of that as sexy considering the circumstances of the scene, but I’m messed up that way.

Hardest video to make:
I Hear The Bells. While I made it, it sucked my soul out through my nose.

Most unintentionally *telling* video:
Blood Red Summer. Another time, another place, I could have been him. I didn’t realize how much of myself I put into the vid until after it was finished and now I can’t watch it. I wanted to be able to hand people something, point at it, and say: “See? He was fucked up for a reason.”

And in addition:
If there is any question you would like to ask me about any one of my vids, then go ahead! What I meant by a particular clip or sequence, why I chose to highlight that characterization, why I chose that song, what crack I was taking and where you can get some...anything. Anything you might like to know about how I made a vid, I shall do my best to answer.
