Curated for WisCon (wiscon_vidparty) 2014, "Dessa" - Collection of vids with music from Dessa.

Dessa is a writer, spoken word artist, rapper, and singer with work that contain narratives of female self-reliance. With the lens of feminist science fiction in mind, I curated a list of vids that meld with her unique wit and flow to exemplify the multiple media narratives available in our vidding world.

1. [livejournal.com profile] giandujakiss's Seamstress (Nikita)
2. [livejournal.com profile] isagel's Skeleton Key (Person of Interest)
3. [livejournal.com profile] astartexx's Matches to Paper Dolls (The X-Files)
4. [livejournal.com profile] sabrina_il's Dixon's Girl (X-Men)
5. [livejournal.com profile] beccatoria's Poor Atlas (Battlestar: Galactica)
6. [livejournal.com profile] chaila's Seamstress (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles)
7. [livejournal.com profile] chaila's Sound the Bells (Pacific Rim)

Also, how freaking brill is this poster for the vid discussion by Jack Shoegazer? The answer is very.

And I'm linking to the Thank Heaven for Little Girls Playlist - WisCon 2013 from last year (Collection of vids about little girls: their protectors, their victims, their worlds, their families, their missions, their deaths...)

Originally I had intended to include addition vids, but needed to cull the playlist for length, repetitions, and stricter adherence to themes. These vids were not included in the playlist, I did want to provide links for others.

[livejournal.com profile] milly's Mineshaft (Game of Thrones)

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.

Challenge Amenesty
[livejournal.com profile] bradcpu's Thrift Shop (remakes) - LOLZ, entertaining concept and great musical combination. A cinematic thrill of a vid. The "I wear your granddad's clothes" section was especially satisfying.

ghost_lingering's Shephards (Firefly & Pulp Fiction) - Again, a spoken word vid was my favorite of a vidshow. I love everything about what this vid chooses to be. The way the three back stories are essentially the same was something that I needed to see in vid form. Book, Jubal Early, and the Operative were the same piece in the game at different levels of the game so to speak, parallel to Jules in Pulp Fiction. I still remember realizing that intentional vid connection during the Challenge discussion and I felt like a genius, lol.

[livejournal.com profile] anoel's We Don't Care (The Wire) - I'll never get tired of vids about the kids' season on The Wire.

[livejournal.com profile] milly's Mineshaft (Game of Thrones) - Ros, how I love thee and how her story was woven in this vid. Dessa, how I love thee too.

[livejournal.com profile] sisabet and [livejournal.com profile] sweetestdrain's The Sellout (multifandom) - Troublesome, yet ultimately satisfying storylines, which probably says something about me as a viewer.

[livejournal.com profile] absolutedestiny's Age Like Wine (vidder's catalog) - Those programs look hella impressive and daunting. I love introspective and self referential things like this.
