VividCon Premieres 2012 Intro Vid (multi) - EPIC AS HALE. -[livejournal.com profile] greensilver

Fields of Coal (The Unusuals) - I have such a deep love of the show that I was worried the vid would just be someone who watched for Jeremy Renner. I cannot express how happy I was with this vid. I had a doofy smile on my face the entire time, even at the sad bits, because I was just so happy that it existed. -[livejournal.com profile] barkley

The Adventure (Harry Potter) - Who doesn't love Neville? If I had feelings, I'd probably have gotten misty. I thought it was interesting during In Depth when it was said that most of fandom is coming from the "same place" as Neville. I don't know how true it is, but I do know that Harry Potter, the character, was like boring sand paper to me, so anything that makes someone else's journey the focus it fantastic. -[livejournal.com profile] greensilver

Forever Yours (House) - The enthusiasm and love in this vid is unparalleled. It took 8 years and it needed to be made and it needed to loved by me. For a brief moment I forgot that Wilson was totally dying. -[livejournal.com profile] anoel

Let Me Put My Love in You (Bitchslap) - This movie owned me, so I was sold before the vid even started. The added bonus was that the vid is so amazing and I didn't want to blink for fear of missing a second. It has the witty tongue-in-cheek winking thing going for it because it never takes itself too seriously and when it does, there's a hilarious edit to bring it back to camp. -[livejournal.com profile] sweetestdrain

Lateralus (Fringe) - I love how this stood out among the other vids because of how it handled the opening. It's all about consequences for actions. I'm continually torn over Walter's character because he's so many things and there's so many different ways to feel about his character. This pulls a lot of those feelings into one coherent vid. The cause and effect throughout the vid is killer. -[livejournal.com profile] rhoboat

White Rabbit (Puella Magi Madoka Magica) - Trippy as hell and I loved it. -[livejournal.com profile] shati

Masters of War (The Pegasus Rising Remix) (Stargate: Atlantis)- A lot of people in SGA fandom have been waiting years for a vid like this. Much like Lateralus from above, it's all about consequences. SGA tended to be a show of squee, but it always something dark with a mask painted over it for me. -[livejournal.com profile] bironic

Possession (Legend of the Seeker) - So beautiful. -[livejournal.com profile] bradcpu

The Lightning Strike (multi) - When the vid first started my thought was, "ohhh, Nicky would hate this. It's a bunch of white dudes clowning around making war." Then after a moment I recognized the editing and realized it was her vid. Oops, that will teach me to not look at the program beforehand. This is absolutely the ultimate epic slash vid throughout history and beyond. -[livejournal.com profile] obsessive24

VID RECS:
[livejournal.com profile] kuwdora's Outer Space (Stargate Ark of Truth)- The movements are flowing and beautiful with the fading and the feel of the music.
[livejournal.com profile] kuwdora's Under My Skin (Heroes)- LOL, I have no clue what is actually going on, but it looks like a hilarious romp, like a mind control Weekend at Bernie's. OMGINSANITY!
[livejournal.com profile] kuwdora's Hot Mess (Heroes)- That's hot.
[livejournal.com profile] kuwdora's If You Stayed Over (Sleeper Cell)- My heart is broken after watching. It looks so beautiful with all the tragedy and sadness, then those brief moments of hope that are dashed to pieces.
[livejournal.com profile] kuwdora's Suddenly I See (Castle)- Sweet and adorable with a lovely concept.

[livejournal.com profile] chaila43's Lucky (Rubicon)- Very interesting editing. The vid really made me miss the show. I can't believe it was cancelled. It was so flipping good, I don't understand it. The music choice was excellent, like a lovely kind of weirdness with the jumpcutting structure.
[livejournal.com profile] chaila43's Pokerface (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles)- Hell yeah, love the editing and style choices with the interesting religion themes, the use of hands, the turning, and how the men twirl around her until she twists them up.

[livejournal.com profile] hollywoodgrrl amd [livejournal.com profile] ohvienna's Seven (David Lynch Films)- The narrative of the vid very much echoes the construct of a Lynch film. The editing is meticulously calculated and pay mind to recurring compositions and logics. I love how she played with the fractured identities to the point of them all, mainly female characters, being one solid character because they are all from Lynch's mind. They split and crack and form one monster. The vid begins as a typical vid might with set up and an evolving narrative, then it tumbles down the rabbit hole into a wonderland of audiovisual nightmarish delight. I've watched many of his recent documentaries and there is something of the man himself captured in the vid. It's a nearly unexplainable quality that the vid has manipulated his life's work to create a deconstruction draped over a man.

[livejournal.com profile] hollywoodgrrl's Deeper and Deeper (Legend of the Seeker)- I have a thing for violent sex fights, therefore, I love this vid.
[livejournal.com profile] hollywoodgrrl's Vertigo (Twin Peaks)- I need to take a shower after that horrid and disturbing vid. I loved it. The dancing and kissing and twirling and the hits and the back and forth between Leland and BOB.
[livejournal.com profile] hollywoodgrrl's Boom Boom Pow (Fringe)- MY FAVORITE PART WAS EVERYTHING
kiki_miserychic: A Dinosaur and Kate Spade Shoes Fairytale (Default)
I had another doctor's appointment. She said I did a lot of healing this week and it's looking great. It's to the point now where I won't have to have skin graphs. Last week they mentioned that I might have needed it to close up the skin over the muscles at the bottom of the wound because it was tunneling. I asked about physical therapy because they mentioned it last week, but the doctor said it's difficult to tell right now because I still have a ways to go before we can discuss it. That pretty much ends the good part. There's a secondary wound on the back of my thigh now. It's not the exactly the same as the first; it doesn't look the same, but it hurts the same. They put antibiotics on it and a dressing, telling me to call if it got worse. The whole thing has me freaks out again. They didn't do any tests or take a sample, so it can't be that bad. I'm just freaking out because that's been my general state of being for the last month. Freaking out and terrified of dying some awful death.

Most of the doctor's at the hospital thought it was an insect bite, while some thought it was a puncture from a scrape or something else, but there was never a conclusive answer. It wasn't the original wound that was the reason it was so serious. The infection was the major thing. The MRSA was what caused the whole thing. I flipped my shit when I came home and had everything cleaned from bleaching my clothes, sending stuff to the dry cleaners, sanitizing everything, and everything, so an insect bite is unlikely if it's happening again. I would have sprayed a thin layer of Purell all over the house if it was possible.

I'm feeling really screwed up, more so than usual. Libby brought up that I haven't let many people touch me at all. Before all this I was weird about people touching me anyways. If I'm not expecting to be touched, I flinch. Libby said I've become every weirder about it. One of my friends made a comment about it a few years ago because I would shrug his arm off my shoulder and he took it personally until he finally asked me about it and I didn't even realize I did it. Lately I only let the nurses and doctor touch me and I snap at my family when they try to hug me or anything. For a few days in the hospital I was told not to touch anyone because they weren't sure what I had and they thought it might be contagious. I guess I took that a bit far, even after they said I was cleared. I haven't voluntarily touched someone else in a month. I haven't had anyone over to the house and I barely talk to my friends on the phone. I'm only really talking to Amanda and Cassey. I made plans to go to Amanda's and watch a movie, but now there's a second wound and the doctor said it would be best if I stayed home until everything was checked out. I've forgotten what some of my friends look like. I'm pretty sure whatever I had going on with J. is over because I didn't tell him I was in the hospital and he found out from someone else. He sent me a bitchy text message saying that he never felt close to me emotionally. In that whole string of texts he never once asked me if I was ok. He knew I was still in the hospital, but he thought it was a good idea to have a text argument with me. He knew how I was before we got together and I don't feel to bad about because he has another girlfriend. When I'm honest with myself, I didn't call him and I didn't even think about it, which says something. I don't miss him much either. I miss other people way more.

So now that I've puked my emotional guts out have some VID RECS:
[livejournal.com profile] charmax's It's Not Over Yet (Merlin) - Amazing construction and editing of motion with skilled implementation of symbols.

[livejournal.com profile] lsketch42's Crackdance (Supernatural) - A cute and fun vid that is extremely rewatchable.

[livejournal.com profile] obsessive24's Red (Merlin) - The imagery and feeling of predestination is startling with the tone of the vid and the tension.

[livejournal.com profile] talitha78's Creator (Chuck) - With so few Sarah Walker vids, this one says something interesting with the footage using the Intersect imagery and slight glimpses into her internal emotions.

[livejournal.com profile] tearful_eye's Dido's Lament (Stargate SG-1) - Sadly beautiful editing with swaying motion, like a quietly hard lullaby.

My friends and I were out Friday at the lamest bar known to man. It was a friend of a friends' birthday, so we took her out. Of course my stupid self didn't know her dad was the mayor of my town. I am made of epic fail. She's fun, but I wish I'd known before. That way I wouldn't have done half the things I did. It was her first time in a club so we took her to a tame one. No gay bars. :)

My grandparents are on vacation again, which means I'm cooking Thanksgiving Slapsgiving dinner for the family... If you don't hear from me it's because I burned my house down. Seriously. I didn't know it took days to defrost a turkey and I'm thinking about taking my mini-blow torch to it.

VID RECS:
[livejournal.com profile] astartexx's Jesus Christ [alt: Wood and Nails] (Supernatural) - Every choice made by the vidder feels right from the black and white to the editing choices to the clip choice to the framing to the use of the lyrics to everything. It makes my heart squeeze tight. After this vid I think I need a hug as much as Dean does.

[livejournal.com profile] butterfly's Digging the Heroine (Heights) - It's understated, like the movie itself. The vid weaves come of the threads from the movie together.

gwyneth and jo's I Remember (Charlie Jade) - Striking and stark visuals with a harsh mood. Don't let lack of fandom knowledge keep you away.

Eunice's And She Was (Doctor Who) - This is the Rose I remember and love.
Eunice's Don't Touch That Dial (Doctor Who) - This is my Martha.

Jessie's The River (Angel/Buffy the Vampire Slayer) - Smart use of the lyrics and quick editing with the drumbeats.

[livejournal.com profile] kazbaby's Eurydiceverse (Stargate: SG-1) - A layered and moody vid with so much under the surface.

kitty's On Top (Supernatural) - Great use of outtakes and other footage to create a cute and vaguely homicidal vid with a heart of gold.

Speranza's Lifetime Piling Up (Stargate: Atlantis) - Nice jump cutting, witty use of the lyrics, overlays, and creation of mood. It's adorable and endearing.

VID REC: [livejournal.com profile] lim's This Is How It Works - A Stargate: Atlantis John/Rodney inspired by [livejournal.com profile] synecdochic's fic, Freedom's Just Another Word For Nothing Left To Lose (You don't have to have read the fic to appreciate the artistry of the vid, but the fic is wonderful and adds to understanding the vid). The vid is beautifully timed and orchestrated qith amazing effects, coloring, clip choice, and text. So as not to murder [livejournal.com profile] lim's bandwidth, with permission, I've uploaded an alternate link on yousendit of divX (24mb, medium quality).

I sent off Through the Event Horizon, my fic for [livejournal.com profile] musesfool's It's Got a Good Beat and You Can Dance to It: The Multifandom .mp3 Challenge, to be beta-ed. yay.

Also, how awesome are the new episode promo images for SG-1 10x03? Very.

Becki had her going away party this weekend. I still can't believe she's in the Navy. At boot camp she can't have contact with the outside world for the first 9 weeks, then she can write letters and have 30 minutes on the phone a day. That's so nuts.

VID REC: [livejournal.com profile] beccatoria's Jesus Walks - A Battlestar Galactica Laura Roslin character piece that's funny and wonderfully executed with great music to video matching. Seriously, if anyone on BSG is gangsta, it's Roslin. It was just posted, so this is like an insta-rec.

The new "With A Little Stargate" promos on scifi are really funny and cute.

I was going to read some episode guides, summaries, and junk before starting to watch Stargate SG-1 and Stargate: Atlantis, but then I thought what hell, I'll just jump right in like I did with Battlestar Galactica.
